xPAD Issue DJM 900

Hey guys, Just opened my second DJM 900 after returning the first one for issues. I am not sure if anyone has experienced any issues with the recent DJM 900 update ? I am having an issue with the xpad. i set the beat grid say to 4/1 no matter where I  touch the xpad the (red) beat marker moves to the next beat ?

That's normal operation - each effect has a set range for the X-pad.

Ya.. I thought if u touched the right most side yiud get 1/1 and then the leftmost side, ud get 1/2. This os right.. U dont get the whole range ud get if u were to use the buttons cuz u cant fit that many selections on a 2 inch xpad. Mine works the same.

Pulse the DJM 900 I had pror to this one did not work that way when I touched the x pad the red dot did not jump to the next beat grid it remained wherever I touched the x pad now it jumps away . This is the way it's suppose to work ?

On that effect in ur video, I believe the x-pad gives you 4 different beat sizes - so the x-pad is divided into 4 equal-sized portion - starting from right to left, it would go something like this                | 1/8 | 1/4 | 1/2 | 1/1 |               so imagine each of your four fingers can tap each section and you should get that sections beat size.  Im going off memory on the above beat sizes but I think thats right for sliproll x-pad beat sizes but in any event, its smallest to largest from left to right.

Thanks Kevin, I assume my first DJM 900 was really screwed up Working on my second :)

Ya.. Not to worry tho cuz it looks like its working ok... And i think ull find that having a lesser amount of beat sizes on the xpad makes it really nice to use for short bursts of an effect (think about the 4 finger thing and what u can do witht that).. Its def one of my favorite features on the 900..

Just keep in mind that different effects have different xpad parameters depending whether u have the effect big yellow button on or off.. The manual gives a decent breakdown of what to expect for each effect in each state (mainly the yellow button on or off). Good luck
