I wanted to ask if there is any development planned at all or if it has been really considered to make it possible to connect the SC5000 players to the computer, so that we can load tracks from it.
I’m aware of this post: Network link 2 sc5000 to destop pc - but it dates almost a year old now and we have not heard any news about it (as far as I know).
I fully understand that design of the system pivots around the philosophy of “no computer required”. However, I think that as it currently stands, playlist preparation and library management is an important issue. Although the system should continue aiming to DJs using the decks laptop-free in clubs, that does not imply that pushing tracks directly from Prime Engine (PC/laptop) is not needed. Note that I’m not asking for some kind of Traktor/Serato/Rekordbok DJ. The system is a standalone system, I get it - I’m asking just for a Rekordbok Link functionality.
Been able to search tracks in huge media libraries in the laptop, directly push them to the decks and experiment mixing them into the decks is a must the in studio/preparation stage for lots of DJs - it’s part of the workflow (even if the final target is to use the decks without laptop in the club).
I’d like to politely ask if this is at all in the pipeline, and what are the reasonable chances or getting this implemented.
