CDJs Autoload CUES

I would like to ask why the Hot Cues doesnt autoload when I load a new song ?

Would be nice to know the benefits why we need to Push the "Rec/Call" button, and if its possoble to change in a future update (with or without Rekordbox).

I have Cdj 2000s

We been asking for this, since the players came out, the reason they don't autoload is that someone somewhere thought it would slow up the loading times too much.

I have already requested they enable it via a menu option, so I can then decide to use it if I want to.  I think the current arrangements for the Hot Cues is so, so poor.

I personally don't think they will fix it now, they are way too busy designing new controllers etc.

Many people agree with you and it has been suggested to add to the FW in the players, It is very annoying that they do not auto load

Gavin, You guys talk to the engineers obviously, do they think this may make it into the 2000's?

Would be nice to know the benefits why we need to Push the "Rec/Call" button --> now you can have hotcue A,B and C of 3 different songs... with an automatic load function, cuepoints of previous songs would be overwritten by the current song and it would not be possible to jump from 1 track to an other...

I agree with s_decoster. Since its not loading automatic the cue points you can easily jump to a previous track.

At the end of the day is not so hard to press the "call" button.

at the end of the day, YES, it is time consuming to have to manually load all my hot starts on every track load...

I think it should be an option, auto load cue or not in the menu, I personally would rather it auto load like serato does, I NEVER felt the need to jump between tracks using hot starts, I do however use hot starts on almost every track and sometimes mix in and out quick so yes, it is hard "time consuming" to have to hold down call, then load 3 hot starts, waist of 5 seconds per track I load if I do it quick, each track I load I now have to load, wait a second for it to finish loading, then press and hold call for 2 second then hit abc to load my hot starts, waist of time. Plus there's times that when I call hot starts and hot cues, the decks freeze for a couple of seconds which is scary, again, just auto load them and lastly, if I am in the middle of a song and then decide, shit, I want to jump to "C", I now cannot unless I remembered to load ALL my hot starts at the load of each track. Most people utilizing the 2000's with flash drives, RB, etc.... are coming from programs like serato/traktor/etc... where they are used to quick track dropping and jumping to cues, now going to the 2000's seems a step backwards that we have to load the hot starts manually, It's not for every dj so just give us the choice, Some dh's do prefer to jump between tracks using the hot starts, I have never personally seen anyone utilize this "feature" but oh well.

I can understand that this option is wanted by people who don't jump from song to song, however it would be sad if the option to have different hot cues for different song would be lost. A choice menu in the options would be most preferrable I guess...About the time that is "lost": remember we win already +- 6 seconds in comarison with a cd ;)

I agree 100%, the feature should not be lost, just let the user have the choice

Thing is that I use Rekordbox and load all songs from there, and if I want to jump between CUES in different songs I can load them from the CUE Bank libary !!!

This Autoload is a big thing for me because it slows down my work in process...

How does the Cues load on Hid/midi controllers like DJJs.

All other programs like Traktor and VirtualDj (not sure about Serato) autoloads with all kind of controllers, why is it not possible to make it happen with Pioneer Gavin ?
