Thanks to the multiple USB ports per SC5000 (3 USB ports and an SD card Slot on each deck, so 6 USB ports and 2 x SD card slots on a pair of sc5000, so DJ hand overs are easy - DJs can just plug their USB sticks into any available usb slot
Instead of a usb stick, use a usb hard drive or usb ssd.
Perfect - no laptop needed at gigs, just all your music on an ssd - the screens and searching, sorting, filters, playlists, crates etc mean it’s perfectly usable for hundreds of thousands of tracks on a usb drive , all instantly searchable - no laptop needed anymore
I’ve read posts with regards to the forum environment
Take this guy for example doing his research before investing
He asks a simple question but the next 3 or 4 posts were people lecturing him whilst not giving him a straight answer lol. Basically telling him to change his usual workflow at the drop of hat to use the primes.
The first post to directly answer his question was
No. Providing facts. The post from Reece was not the first to answer his question. Mine was.
Besides, posting a question here is not (IMO) “doing research”. He could have found an answer by watching videos, reading manuals, using Google… IMO he took the easy way out.
There was a guy recently whose first post on here was asking if there was a soft case for the Prime 2. He could have found that info by typing a few words into Google.
Also I’m not sure your info on Rekordbox is fully up to date, as I remember many CDJ users complaining that they were now expected to pay a monthly fee to use Rekordbox. If they could just use the free version to link up their CDJs why would they complain?
One is via rekordbox performance mode (just like using virtual dj etc)
The one OP is asking for is the Link Export Mode. There are no virtual decks on screen. No performance features. Basically you are using the laptop as one huge hard-drive but with the benefit of being able to manage, type, edit grids and do more things at the same time.
