So... basically a hot cue?
CDJ NXS2 Quantize Cue Point Jumping
With a firmware update on the cdj nxs2 line I would like to see saved cue points to be able to jump while the track is still playing and it could be quantized on beat. If an update is possible this would open so much capabilities for the new nxs2. This would also change the work flow for djs opening up so much more creative and editing possibilities. Now that we have 8 hot cues they could be utilized mostly as performance tools for creating drumming and vocal cutting ect... While cue point jumping would allow to jump anywhere in the track on the fly essentially editing on the fly.

It wouldn't need stuttering feature like hot cues allow you to do. It basically expands what cue points can do. So cue points are utilized only when track is paused so this feature would allow to jump to the saved cue points quantized while the track is playing. This would allow also better workflow between hot cues and cue points. Now with 8 hot cues djs can use them as a performance tool.
Having 8 hot cues seems like a lot it can be used up quickly when you look at hot cues for performance side such as cutting up vocals and drumming ect.. So cue point jumping pretty much takes the work flow for djs to not have to sacrifice hot cues just to get to a specific part of a track. So hot cues performance tool while cue points editing track on the fly. Yeah basically it expands cue points features.
The end game would be to configure cue points so when a track hits a certain cue point you can have it jump automatically to another set cue point. Essentially editing a track to your liking and saving using cue points as jump markers. I think that won't be possible till next cdj so Ill make a different post on that.
