I just buy it, prices fell sharply (destocking) and the new driver (on site at Pioneer) is working with VDJ and Traktor. I've added a Audio 2, the sound is exellent and the couple is recognized natively per Traktor. Budgets: less than 400 Euros for the two new aircraft ...
Reactivity accuracy and speed controls are Pricipals its strengths. It operates on the HID protocol (such as 900 and the 2000 ?...) I do not understand why this info is not found near both the Pioneer docs on the descriptions of the shops. I for my part discovered by chance this technical detail.
This command goes to the essential functions with reduced relative to the interfaces while a fashionable but the bulk of the pair (C1 and Audio2 PRC) and the price attracted me. No bugs so far in twenty hours of use. Pitch bend by buttons + / -, start / cue, loop, research in music or menus in the comp are excellent.
The only downside is the lack of info for configuring as few examples on the net and limited doc. Dificult for a non expert Traktor (I am), adjust the sensitivity of the plates scratch / research trimming in the original config makes it impossible to stall a bit early to jog set ... Also some details on the config is done in the dark (original driver CD does not work under win 7, about two cords connecting the USB config with VDJ ...).
The display is really small, it is better to concent on the PC screen.
Ultimately, both devices are recognized by Tracktor and just follow the protocol config and everything works. It's a bit more "galley" with VDJ but it ends up walking.
I use its direct competitor DENON: DNHC4500. I find it hard to say what is the best. Both devices are designed to pro. The Pio is the fastest starts (the HID Pioneer must be something to do ...). Apart from the size 2U rack, ergonomics and the "feel Pioneer is there, the machine inspires confidence and users of the mark will not be disoriented. The sound also seems to be more precise and punchy on the Pio as the Denon especially with Traktor.
The Denon is easier to pitch, more friendly and logical navigation between songs, trays scratch / search more accurate and easy it is dottée internal sound card and the display is more "readable" and more complete. I'm not going to add, there are some functions in addition to the Denon (and hot sync button starts or effects ...)
The value for money is really interesting and respective industry saw the price of new device and sound card. Who wants to focus on the "mix", the camera is awesome and will definitely sustainable. For working with playlists on key functionalities provided by the double CD are taken into account (video, karaoke, good internal sound card ...) Namely MEP 7000 I believe, but this is more expensive and other devices are respective industry.
