Please post here your tests and feedbacks of the Ver.4.10 firmware for CDJ 2000 ... Thx
Post is closed for comments.
THANK YOU !!!
better late than never :) thank you pioneer
I see there were 4 interim iterations, really appreciate the extra scrutiny in QA from Pioneer on the fix. I'm looking for a few more forum posters with their experience on this FW before I commit. Please post the styles and tempos (and pitch if you remember) you tried, I'll do the same after I test it out (mine with be tested with breaks and glitch, and 2% - 4% offsets...what were problem children for me)
So far so good on my CDJ-2000 and CDJ-900.. I am definitely convinced this is a MT improvement!
@All > Like we have said in prior posts and comments, Pioneer has been working to rectify this issue asap - we appreciate your patience and I am glad to see you are enjoying the update.
NICE!!!! I can finally turn MT back on!! I shall test when I get out of work.
Gavin, now that the MT is improved, Is it on the engineers list to add features now, Like lets say "load hot starts on track load" :)
I have tested the MT briefly, and had no drifting issues so far.
Well done Pioneer. Thanks for listening and taking action.
is this update working fine over Pro DJ Link, using a router?
Works great on my end. Although I've never had a major issue with Master Tempo anyways. ;)
Not tested yet but well done Pioneer if it is fixed !
Upgrade completed and tested on a few of my most notorious tracks. Considerable improvement, to the point I detected no flam or wander in percussion (especially noticeable on glitchy/choppy breaks tracks.) I also noticed that the overall sound quality with MT=on at the extremes of pitch bend (+/- 8% or so) has significantly improved. Set to WIDE, the behavior sounds similar to what I remember from my old 1k's. Will have another DJ in our collective come over with Traktor and run a comparison with PC-based pitch corrected tracks, but at this point I'm calling it good... No longer do I need to be especially concerned to program around significant pitch variations. Thank you, again, Pioneer, for taking the matter seriously. Now I am looking forward to native FLAC support in your products;)
Done a "quick" test after updating just the one deck and it is better, still got noticable clicking artifacts at a full 6% of adjustment but I would not normally adjust the pitch that much. Too early for me to say how "usable" it is just yet but it sure does sound better to me.
Tested with mixing....Perfect
Tested with all loops.....Perfect.
Now I love my 2000s even more!
@BriChi > You know I can't say. However, it would be my expectation that increased functionality would be added as required by the majority without over complicating the players.
@pope > flac support cannot be implemented on current hardware.
Tested it yesterday and it amazed me xD
Mixed 2 tracks (7min long) with MT on of course -> no drifting!!!! (or maybe a little little little bit of a tiny drift)
But even that could be the cause of a not perfect annalyse by rekordbox . Still its the same a with MT off !
So Pioneer, Many many thanks on this one!!!!
Done some "back to back" testing, i.e. FW4.05 vs 4.10 and I can honestly say that the new MT sounds 100 times better at -10% than the old MT sounds at -2%, that is a serious test score.
I've not had time to try it whilst mixing "I am supposed to be working - lol" but the impovement in the "minus" settings is some what encouraging.
Stuff work, this MT testing is more important.
BTW It works better in "plus" settings too and I just tried mixing an identical 150bpm loop at up to +/- 10%.
I was turning on the MT function on one deck at a time, both decks having the different FW in. (pls note it does require one very minor "jog" correction if you do this while the loop/track is playing, I guess because of the extra level of processing is taking an iddy biddy bit of extra time up), you would not do this normally. So the results:-
New MT on - perfectly able to beatmatch the loops.
Old MT on - sounds like a train wreck, no matter what you do with the jog wheel.
Long time waiting, but we may have got there.
Now get on and give me an option to "autoload" the Hotcues. "PRETTY PLEASE"
Awesome! The MT is usable again! I hope to see more updates for the current cdjs with things like autoload hotcues and increased functionality.
Hopefully this won't take another 4 months or so..
I would also LOVE to finally see Rekordbox 1.6!
Thanks again pioneer! great update
What i'm hoping for is for RB 1.6 to utilise my iPad with the wifi devices tab.........
out of curiosity, What would you do if B was linked to the iPad?
4.10 was a long time coming, but well done Pioneer for listening. MT is now much improved and much tighter, just done an hour test mix and all is well. At one stage I was feeling that I shouldn't have ebay'd those 1000 mk3's. Hope everyone else feels the improvements,
Wonder if theres a FW update for the djm 2000 soon?, I know.., We will be told as soon as it gets here.. ;-)
Nice work pioneer! MT is improved a lot comparing with previous firmwares. Now you are in the correct path.
so far nice and smooth...
has anyone tried this new update with serato in HID mode?
Is Rekordbox running alright with the new firmeware?
@SpeakerHandz - All worked fine for my hour test, no issues.
I'm reserving comment so far due to testing, but for now, my profile picture to the left should speak volumes.
