Actual manual DJing capabilities are a niche ‘fetish’? O.k.
I think you mean 0.01 increments at 4 and 8% range. Random toggle increments of 0.12 to 0.23 rather than discrete at 100% are similar to the SC5000, just using a shorter pitch fader. So, the GO has similar pitch resolution function with the current firmware as the flagship separates, just more touchy, but that also means you won’t move the GO pitch fader to a slightly new adjacent position and never get a response.
Had my Go for a few days now, and you definitely have to work the faders and fiddle around with it a bit from time to time to hit the value you want - I haven’t had to “give up” though, so it’s definitely possible, yet not as smooth as on the 6K’s. Highly useful little device though
It’s a lovely little unit! Got it for me to bring on tour for when there’s only Pioneer available. While it’s (obviously) not the entirely same feeling as 2x6000’s and an x1850, it’s still a super sweet unit to play around with, and a way for me to be able to play exclusively on Engine it has exceeded my expectations so far for sure!
I might have chosen the Mixstream if it’s been a bit smaller, but it’s too big for me to have in my luggage :-/ I do like the EQ placement etc better, but to be fair it’s actually been less of an issue than I expected with the horizontal EQ on the Go.
And the fact it’s battery powered is actually pretty sweet as well when traveling
It does, yeah. A bit loose to my liking, but it’s definitely useful. I do hope there’ll be an option to link the +/- buttons to the chosen nudge sensitivity as an addition though but after 5 transitions after receiving it I pretty much got the feel of the jogs.
I assume the pitch resolution at 8% on the GO will be exactly the same as the SC5000, just that on the latter, you can move very tiny amounts noticeably and have it sometimes do nothing, which tells me either the long fader is lower resolution per distance than the short or isn’t being utilized as well as it could be. The GO’s touchy performance on the SC Prime separates would be preferrable.
I also prefer vertical EQs, but my tiny little mini mixer with 3.5mm in & out jacks has similar layout and is sort of defective. So, the GO vs SC5000 + mini mixer is more an issue of hassling with cables & layers vs something closer to Versadeck without a full mixer section. I’ve also used a completely passive solution with even more wires with an SC5000, but that’s just at home. I did work in split cue, though.
Can you not make the pitch bend buttons just range like you can on the Prime separates?
GO has split, too, right? Is it in a menu or an on-screen button? If GO has split buried in a settings menu, when you deactivate all cues, does split automatically turn off? Can you override mono split with more than one cue selected?
