Dear Pioneer DJ,
I have reached out to Sweetwater as well to see if they can get us connected somehow. Pulse, you're usually great at getting us assistance- hoping this gets to you. We briefly also touched on this at NAMM.
It seems as though the Microphone runs very “hot" for the DJM-450.
I am using a Wireless Shure SM-58- I have used the older PGX Model as well as the Newer BLX model and both sound very loud even when the knob is turned very low… this is a problem because there is not enough room to adjust volume and fin tune to the appropriate level.
I find myself having to constantly adjust the Master Volume knob and the Mic Knob and this then throws everything off because then I have to adjust the other levels as well making music then sound too low.
This is something that should be visited in a firmware update- hopefully very soon as it is quite problematic for simple use.
Perhaps the db input levels could be adjusted , or make a setting for it in the settings menu, or add a "pad" in the firmware?
I have attached a photo of what is the only workable area on the knob for the mic to try to visually show what I mean.
Your assistance with this would be greatly appreciated!
Respectfully, Jason “Cova” Covarrubias
