So, the release notes state " Cue point color editing: Change the color of your cue pads in both software and hardware to suit your workflow. Cue point colors for tracks are seamlessly synchronized across djay on Mac, iPad, and iPhone via the cloud".
All sounds promising…now to the bad bit…
I guess that the hardware colour change is specific to some controllers only, as nothing at all happens on my DDJ-SX2 and this controller is RGB pad capable.
I can change the cue point colours in the GUI but nothing at all changes on the controller.
This is annoying as the colours presented in the GUI have NEVER matched the colours on the controller and I’d hoped this was finally going to be fixed.
I can change the colours of the cue points in each track match what the controller shows but that is massively time consuming to amend each one on a track by track basis. As what I am effectively doing is making the software match the hardware, whereas the software should be controlling the hardware.
What would be useful (in the absence of the hardware changing colour), is the ability to set the default cue point order so the 8 colours always match to my controller. Either by a setting in Prefs or just be able to drag and drop the colours in the picker to what I want and they stay like that forever.
i.e. At present the cue points default to;
CP1 - Red
CP2 - Orange
CP3 - Dark Blue
CP4 - Yellow
So, whilst the new update allows me to alter them one by one, a setting to tell it to always use Orange for CP1, Green for CP2 etc would help massively.
The SX2 can’t be the only controller where a) the colours displayed on screen are not the same as the controller and b) where the claim in the release notes just doesn’t work.
