Yesterday I took a video of my prime 4+ waveforms acting very laggy and jittery for the community to see. I am running the latest firmware and was wondering if anyone else has witnessed the same issue as in the video. Techs, if you see this could you please work on a fix for this? Thank you!
HI Andrew, I took a look at your video, I think @Reese will be able to explain it better than I can but basically the waveform is no longer stored in full inside the DB due to it bloating the DB file size, so it now renders live as the track plays which causes this slight visual issue.
There was a lengthy discussion on another thread (that I cant find) whereby it was calculated how many times it would happen per track and the likelihood of seeing it at the time it happens… it was also concluded its nothing more than a cosmetic glitch that doesnt impact the music or the alignment of the grids as it corrects itself as it flickers.
I honestly expected more from a device like the Prime 4 Plus. I have tried the stems and there is still a lot to improve, stem loading is very slow, they sound quite bad…. and it is also already negatively impacting other aspects of the equipment such as something as basic as the moviment of waveforms…. I don’t know how they are going to do it. The equipment is said to be the same processor, I don’t see much room for improvement. I feel a little disappointed. I don’t have much hope that it really is an improvement over the Prime 4. I think stems in this equipment has been a trick marketing for sales……
At a guess, id say there are going to be a good few more Beta releases before the live version is rolled out. Its still only on Beta 1 as far as i can see, and i dont see many people providing feedback on that part of the forum, so the best thing Prime 4+ owners can do is lots of testing, lots of reporting back so improvements can be made.
@Javi_CG Hello Sr. I also have th P4+ and it also does the same with the waveforms. Since it’s just visually, and doesn’t affect the sound I don’t really care. The real problem is when the 4 channels are loaded and running simultaneously. The waveforms become blurry and a bit slow, but again, no performance issues or sound lag. That’s a minor concern for me, because I rarely have to run the 4 channels at the same time. The rest of the unit is fine, boot is fast, loading a deck is fast, track search is fast, no playing problems… I’m not complaining at all because I already knew what the unit is capable of, but I do agree that Denon should have used a more powerful processor and upgraded RAM, specially for the stems, because, yes it is true, the analysis is quite slow, but don’t forget is a beta.
By the way you’ll be disappointed with the Pioneer all in one units because of the lack of features and overpricing. I been using Pioneer stuff before I came back to Denon, was even considering the RX3 before the P4+, but two channels only, no SSD support, no onboard analysis, dull screen, the price and many more, deemed it a bad choice. And let’s not talk about the Opus quad thing…
