I have to bust this myth:
Pioneer has in the past only updated players for necessity vs pleasing current owners as there ideology on products is that if a player works as is intended then they are not likely to bother with adding extra functionality.
This is entirely untrue. Pioneer DJ creates a product with a specific set of functions and goals in mind. Inevitably what happens is the public gets it in their hands and says "Can it do this? Can you improve / change that? This needs to be bigger / faster." By the time it's in your hands, only so much can be changed via firmware, and even the new 16 beat jump functionality on the CDJ-2000NXS2 is maxing out the hardware's capabilities - it was never designed with the intention of having that function, but our clever engineers heard your requests and found a way of shoehorning it in there. They listen to your feedback, complaints, requests, and try to do what's possible with the resources they have available, both within the unit itself and from the engineering side.
Let's be honest, the XDJ-1000MK2 is the second-fiddle to the CDJ-2000NXS2, so of course the CDJ will get priority and updates before the XDJ does, even if they're similar platforms. Does this mean the XDJ will certainly get the same features? No, but as I just said - we've heard your request and I (personally) hope they're able to include it, but I also (personally) understand that if they don't include this feature, it could be because it's not the same unit and simply isn't capable of doing it.
This is a problem with our "update" society - with computers and smartphone, we've come to a certain expectation of having the newest features and functionality simply pushed to us, but as Apple has proven, some older hardware simply isn't capable of receiving all of that functionality, and eventually it does get left to the wayside. It's not about screwing the customer, it's about what's technically and feasibly possible.
Your feedback goes a long way toward improvements, but complaints seldom get anyone anywhere. ;)
PS: I won't even get into all the things they've added for the XDJ-RX since its release because ...
PPS: Upvoting does nothing except stroke egos. We don't count those. ;)
