In the most recent update to Djay the functionality was “improved”. You can only set the cue point when it’s in the “settable state”, which is achieved by pausing the deck.
The current process is:
- press play
- press pause
- tap the cue button to set a cue point
This is a terrible “improvement”. By creating a “settable state” the software has eliminated a very common vinyl brake style DJ technique.
2.Press Pause allowing the track to wind down.
3.Press cue to return to the cue point.
4. Press Play or Press and Hold the Cue.
5.Rinse, repeat, etc.
This stutter play, wind down technique is a huge part of my and many other DJ’s style. It’s how CDJs work and it’s how other software works. It’s pretty much the standard functionality for the industry.
Please return this functionality to Djay. Or at least add an option in the Settings to allow us to pick which functionality we want.
