Did you first set a master cue (by setting either the loop-in or pausing the track and setting the main CUE at that location)? If not, you were setting the first cue as the memory point, but not where the playhead was.
issue with setting manual cues
Not sure if this is a known issue or if its been addressed as I had a hard time with the search feature here. I haven't used RekordBox since probably June and i booted it up today and saw there was a new update. ran the update and now, for some reason I can't set manual cues. hot cues are working fine but whether I use the "shift+memory" on the deck or hit "memory" on the performance pads handle. has anyone else run into this issue? using ddj-400 and before anyone asks, yes I turned the computer off and back on again and unplugged and plugged the deck back in.
Thanks. that did it.
