Hi, I posted a while back when I first got the RANE one on what everyones experience has been like - unfortunately at the moment this just isnt fit for purpose. I played my first club gig at the weekend there and just couldn’t trust taking the RANE and had to go back to the DDJ-400. reasons as follows;
Song Volume Levels - Some songs can be a lot louder than others so a constant juggle with the levels of the songs to keep them in line and not mix a song that completely takes over. This has been one of the most annoying issues - even trying to make mixes to upload - you end up with a file where the volumes sways all the way through.
Song Pitch - What you can do on one deck can affect the pitch/tone of the other deck woth no consistency as to what and when this may happen.
Song Pitch pt2 - if you start a song using hot cue button and then press play button you will hear a noticable dip in pitch for a couple of seconds
Song Pitch pt3 - sometimes the song will just dip in pitch for no reason at all.
Neural Mix - I find you have to be very careful with this - if you try and do utilise too much of this function it can cause lags and dips in pitch - can also unalign songs that have been matched
Crossfader - Many times during the mix it will change the crossfader function from default to gradual which again causes volume level issues.
FX Paddles - Think this has been raised before but it akes no difference which paddle you use, be great if you could seperate this out.
Anyone else had similar issues to this?
I am literally at the end of my tether with it and cant see another option but to move to Serato where I can actually use the RANE one I paid all that money for lol.
I’d appreciate any help if possible.
