AUTO-TRANSITION DURATION IGNORED
In testing new Crossfader FX on djay 5.0.2 on iOS, I’m seeing no change when setting Auto-Transition Duration to most settings (2, 8, 16, 32, etc). It seems to only transition at 4 regardless.
I’m opening the Crossfader FX pop-up with 2 tracks playing on Decks 1 & 2, selecting 8 or 16 or 32 in Auto-Transition Duration, and finally selecting the Mix Now button. The result is always a 4 beat transition.
I know it worked at least once or twice because I watched it transition slowly after selecting 16. But now it only transitions at 4 beats always.
WHAT I TRIED
Force quit djay, restart iPad, and trying different songs and different crossfader effects.
DOUBLE-SELECT UX ISSUE
It’s unnecessarily tedious to be forced to open the Crossfader FX popup twice if I want to select a new effect and then select the Mix Now button to use the effect.
With 2 songs playing on both decks, I open the Crossfader FX popup and select an effect like Riser. Immediately the popup closes and I have to reopen the Corssfader FX popup in order to start the desired Riser transition. It’s unexpected and requires a doubling of taps.
Maybe this is unimportant because most people will use one effect 99% of the time (if they ever use it at all). I’ll likely map this to a controller anyway, but it still seems like a poorly implemented user experience.
