Newbie here - I’ve picked up a Denon Prime 2 and giving it a try after nothing but hassle with another well known brand…
First impressions are great! It’s a really fantastic piece of kit.
Sorry if this has been covered already but I did search on here for a while with no luck.
I use Echo a fair bit as an echo out. I’m finding I keep leaving the FX on by accident and when loading a new track it stays on. Then I only notice when mixing in the new song, which sounds awful. It’s infuriating!
Is there a way / setting to turn OFF the FX section when you load a new track? I tried ticking ‘reset fx when loading new track’ but that doesn’t actually switch it off.
Secondly I’m finding the gains are all over the place - even when matching tracks up with the VU meters, songs are still playing out at different volumes. Am I missing something here?
Yeah - I guess it’s just a force of habit / me becoming lazy. I’ve been using a variety of standalone and software stuff for 15 years now. I’m sure I’ll get used to it, but if it wasn’t too much trouble, having the option to switch the fx off with each fresh track load would be great.
The gains is just another thing to get used to. I don’t think it’s wrong, it’s just different. I’m finding there’s definitely a big difference in volumes between tracks and genres compared to rekordbox analysed files. It’s ok it’s just remembering to take a bit more notice of your levels. Again, me becoming lazy I’m sure.
They are definitely all different, I usually have my channel LEDs running about 3 from the top and I find it gives a good scope to get it accurate. Usually I’ll get it so it’s just leaking into the 3rd light then back off slightly so it’s leaving 3 unlit. Not sure if this helps.
I just see it as adding some ‘personality’ to the mix lol… to be fair how many videos do you see on the tube where loads of weapons in the comments are accusing the DJ of faking it. im at the point now where I feel like messing up some mixes just to appease them clowns Kris
Your flashing light idea is good though, should be easy in firmware too as its only a command isnt it.
