I'm going through Djay connected with the new wego3.....I found the basic and most essential effect that i always use is the 'high low pass filter. Yet this is the effect that's missing from the essentials fx pack which means it can't be assigned to an fx button on the wego3. Please please can you add it to the essentials pack. Thanks

Yeah, and this is pretty much the only controller going that can do what I want it to do, and in such small form factor. I am switching my vote. I think it must come down to too many jobs for this company to handle. Really they need to pay sugar bytes, or someone else, to have them help out with their filter a little. If it is a matter of not wanting to give sugar bytes, or others the recipe to the filters, please just let them have it, and make djay even better. Lpf, hpf band pass, and one that had both Lpf in one direction, and one with hpf in the other, so that it could do both, the way it does on the app. If only I could...do the math, I mean program it myself. lol :) Keep up the good work Algoriddim, we are almost there.

I agree that it isn't only about putting it in the FX list. This filter sounds terrible. I gave a try using Djay on a Mac during my last year-end gig and I felt the crowd disliked the agressivity of the filter. It's actually better when used on the touch screen but I decided to switch to Traktor during the night because of this issue.
Next time I'll use it in external mixer mode with my MP2014 for which there is no question about the quality of the filters ! Too bad this mode isn't available on iOS !

Yeah, they have their work cut out for them. It's funny, cuz the eq's are pretty good. Eq's are one of the hardest parts to get right, digitally. That is why a lot of guys use analog mixers. Somehow they need to smooth out the filters. Maybe use multi band compression, or attenuation to limit them at certain frequencies. Personally, I just turn it down a little when I am filtering. : ) Yeah, so I started thinking it over, and was like oh, just use the headphone out for one channel, and the mains for the other, and sure enough. Just turn down the volume on the cue chanel, hit the cue button, and turn off auto-cueing in the app. Now if only I had a filter on my mixer. lol. Thanks. Athough pretty cool, and very useful. This is still not resolved for me. : ) I prefer having everything portable, and in one place.

+1 for this. I have wego3 and think that it really needs a filter as an effect.

You have to understand, even without a wego 3, we still need the filter pack. It will add to the possibilities of what we can do. Thank you.

2 years of frustration. How hard could it be to remedy ?

Pretty hard, They would have to re contract sugar bytes add an additional filter pack, and possibly fix their Filters. Personally I would pay as much as 5 additional dollars for an add on filter pack. So I suppose they could make some of the money back, potentially. : )

But Sugar bytes don't have a monopoly on hi lo standard filter. They have their 'sequenced effects " l have most of their apps for ableton. A simple filter ...is simple. A mortgage in UK doesn't take two years to complete - and that's hard. I gave up on this after 2 months... But the thread lives on
cos everyone wants it.

It's quite simple. They don't wanna implement it

The skipped the MID-knob on the WEGO4 and replaced it for a Filter-knob. Would be a perfect solution if they offered this option in a WEGO 3-firmware update.

That's great! Thank you Lukas E. Btw, personally I bought the wego 3 because it had a mid range Eq knob. I use it to replace a gain, and because that is what I am used to. : )

Any news yet? Has there been a firmware update to address the issue?

It's not about firmware but actually having the filter among the list of FX on Djay itself.

Not fixed yet.

Maybe we can try and install the wego4 firmware on the wego3. But yeah wego4 fw has to get an update in order to be downloadable. Weird that even the wego 2 has a filter...

There no need for any firmware to be updated.

Two fixes possible :
- A customized mapping similar to the Wego4 that uses one of the EQ knobs as filter
- Algoriddim adds the filter in the FX list so as one can assign it to the WeGo 3’a jogs.

The issue is just about the fact we can currently not assign the “Filter” on anything else than a knob separate from FX.

All other software do include that filter in their FX list. I don’t see why Algoriddim Djay Pro couldn’t.

Hey Lukas - any news? it shouldn't be very difficult to add the lpf/hpf to the fx list... Really not understanding why Algoriddim won't address this. shame; they're usually pretty good with this stuff.

Even though there's now a pot on the WeGO4 for LP/HP filter, which is great, it comes at a cost and that is they've used one of the existing WeGO3 pots for this, instead of adding an additional one to the WeGO4.

The WeGO3 has high, mid and low pots and the WeGO4 has high, low and LP/HP filter pots.

You can't reassign these pots in djay 2, but you can in Pioneer's WeDJ app.

Its a shame algoriddim is forcing us to leave djay to use WeDJ. I guess once they get our money for the app it's a "we don't care" attitude. It would have been so easy for them to assign LP/HP filter to the fx bank... they just choose not to.

I find the LP/HP pot really useful on my WeGO4 and miss it when I use my friend's WeGO3. Controlling this effect on an iPad screen is more fiddly and even more so on a Mac.

Something else worth noting is on the WeGO3 you press a hardware FX button to turn the FX on and you can use the jog wheel to control the FX, then you press the button to turn it off. On the WeGO4 you have to hold down the hardware FX button to apply the FX and you can't control it using the jog wheel.

thanks god, i buy wego3 ! answer is i think simple, pioneer don't want that. Why would you buy wego3 for less money and use all functions with djay2 :) buy wego4 for more money and less functions bute separate filter knob haha btw do you know that wego 1 and 2 controllers are best money you can buy devices in that range ! why ? ok.. second and first generations are compatible with mac pc ipad etc. but this is important, this two generations can control 4 decks on pc for instance virtual dj, but pioneer say hey.. why we put all great stuff on first and second wego for small amount of money ? we give people even separate control knob for fx... and from third generation you don't have separate fx knob, if you want it spend then more money on expensive products, afc you don't have option to control 4 decks with new generation wego, you don't have gain, you don' have shitty led lights for volume signal strength. If you want it buy expensive and bigger controllers and at the end pioneer app is here, don't buy djay2 buy our app, our app is better :)

I'll assume there still no update regarding this?
