DDJ SP1

Hi All,

This may be a question which would have been answered but i cannot locate the answer im looking for.

I use the the Nexus 900 with mixer and have linked it via network cable (RJ45) where i connect the laptop and use Rekordbox 4.1.1.

My question is can i plug the SP1 via usb and the Nexus 900's via network cable and use the SP1, will it work?

Thank  you

No, because MIDI devices are not supported in export mode

Hi Mark,

Thank you for your response, So I dont have an option to use the SP1 and the 900/s at the same time via USB and RJ45, can i connect the players via USB and the SP1? if not is there any option to use the SP1 and the 900s.

Sorry for the questions as i want to make sure i can use the SP1 before i purchase it.

Thank you

I'm confused.  When connecting equipment via ethernet cable you are utilizing the Pro DJ Link feature.  This only works in export mode.

HI Mark,

I understand what your saying, let me try the set up and get back to you, So if i understand correctly the SP1 only works on performance mode.

Thank you

The DDJ-SP1 only works with rekordbox dj (performance mode) when connected directly via USB.

The DDJ-SP1 only works with CDJ-2000NXS2 if you are wanting to use the rekordbox link (over ethernet). It would connect directly via USB to one of the players' top port, then the players link to each-other and the computer via ethernet. It does not work with other CDJ models at this time.

HI Mark,

Just to explain further, the 850k connected via USB on performance mode, so my question is as stated above "If you are using rekordbox dj in performance mode, yes." will the SP 1 also work when connected,

Thank you

@PaulR > If you are using rekordbox in performance mode, yes, you can use the SP1 in conjunction with CDJs to control rekordbox.

To further clarify...

Yes, you CAN use the SP1 with rekordbox dj and your CDJs (CDJs and SP1 are each plugged into computer via 3 USB cables).

No, you CAN NOT use the SP1 connected to the CDJ-850 via USB.  This feature is only available on the CDJ-2000NXS2.

@Paul > The SP1 will not work when used with a DDJ or XDJ which has similar functions (pads, etc), it will be disabled.

Hi,

I thought so, I read in the manual that you need a mixer connected, is there any way I can connect the sp1 to the laptop to use it.

Thank you

Hi

Can i connect the SP1 only to a laptop and use it or is there a alternative method to use it without connecting any devices?

Thank you

Yes, because the DJM and CDJs don't have the features the SP1 has, you can connect all of them together and use them simultaneously.

@PaulR > How is it you're wanting to connect it and for what purpose? I think we've outlined everything you're asking already.

Hi Pulse,

I know you have explained everything above and mentioned that only a nxs2 can connect a sp1 on the usb port and that i can only connect the sp1 on performance mode. i wanted to ask again is there a possibility of a firmware upgrade for the cdj 2000 or a software update for Rekordbox to support sp1 in link mode?

Thank you

Sorry, it's not an issue with firmware, it's a hardware limitation and will not be available on previous models.
