    Hi, I'm using 2 technics sl-dz 1200 cd-players, everything works fine (track 1 loads song, track 2 starts the song, track 3 searches pl) the scratch sound is better than the sl-dz sound :D and the cue points work great , I even use the sampler pads has more cue's :D (one shot mode). of course u need 2 turn off pitch lock on the cd player or it will mess everything :D

    CDJ400 works great except that the new scratch effects don't work as the time code cd's have no beat so it doesn't know how to process it!

    If anyone is tossing up the CDJ200 and CDJ400 please spend the extra and get the 400 ... it has a scratch mode so track 3 works great.

    Had 3 decks going last weekend with T3.3 ... 2 x CDJ1000mk2 & 1 x CDJ400 ... will try to post pictures soon ...

    100s test!

    Hi guys i own 2 cdjs100 at home and play in a small club 4 nights a week that owns other 2 x 100s, and i have 2 gigs in bigger club that i use 1000s MKIII.

    So there are the results:

    100s has several very little things that bother me. When u play a tune at 0% pitch check the calibration signal in the scopes, you will see that it is different that the signal when u place the pitch at 0.1%. This isn't happened with 1000s. The same 0% pitch calibration signal repeat at +5.0(-0.5) and +10(-10). My opinion is the old players has different data signal than the new ones, and the new players perform better.

    There is a little problem that i have noticed with my 100s at home and at work. When you start the new track at the end of the first beat the track jumps. This happened with every new track you load and play.

    So if someone has a solution for this i will be more than pleased to read it and test it.

    Btw just one stupid thing I did when playing out with the sl-dz's:
    on the end of the track I ejected traktor cd's 4 or 5 times because I kept forgetting it was timecode, not music!

    not sure if someone already posted, but the CDX with the time coded cds work just fine for me. I have been playing with my 1210's and I gotta say I like it better with my cdx setup with the time coded cds than the vynils.

    let's get this topic going again...I might have to switch to cd players for a few months while I am away from my decks for the summer, and I need to know which players REALLY work well with TS...

    so far, some mixed opinions on CDJ 100 - that is kinda the player I am after, so I'd like to hear more user opinions - with the latest updates and all, how is it working? Also, CDJ800 and 1000...

    I have one CDJ-100 and I was DJing at a partythe other night on a couple of them with TS (I only got TS a couple of weeks ago).

    I normally mix on Vinyls and I wasn't impressed with how the 100 performs. Cue-ing a track is not impossible by any means, but tricky as there is a delay in everything you do (the main problem being the track moves forward slightly whilst paused sometimes). In the end I managed to mix fairly seamlessly with them (much better than other cheaper players..) but I definitely think there was room for imprvement.

    I have not tried the 800s or 1000s yet but I am guessing that they would be much better. Also, remember the 100s only have a pitch control that increases or decreases by 0.1% each time - I find that this isnt accurate enough to mix properly, but I am a perfectionist. :)

    Hope this helps..by the way, what do you mean "latest updates?" - firmware updates for the 100? That would be nice..

    next friday i'm playing in a local club with someone who also uses a TC system.

    after a small discussion we decided that he would use the turntables and i would use the CDJ's.

    the mixer is a pioneer djm 800.

    now i was wondering if it would be possible to use my croscables on only 2 channels ? or doesn't it work? and should i just bring normal cables ?

    thnx :)

    I have tried the DNS-1000 and had a constant problem with it pitch bending on its own, NI support said Denon use an enhancer and it confuses TS, a few people have rerecorded the control disc @ -15db but that did not work for me

    Yeah, the Numark CDX units (while IMO being the absolute best cd decks on the market) were giving me slight issues in TS. I was concerned by this and spoke with tech support, and they said that they knew about the issue and that it'd be tackled in a future patch.

    The problem is that when vigorously scratched, even on absolute mode, the track jumps forward in roughly half second bursts, making it impossible to track the sticker on the CDX. I just wanna say that in the 1.2 patch for TS i've found that this issues is SOLVED and works flawlessly on absolute mode (practically melted the plastic i was scratching so hard/fast, and it was %100 on time) although the issue still persists in relative mode.

    also i think that this new fix will be applied to the traktor 3 new patch, 3.4 which i was also told is coming out soon.

    lemme know if anyone has had similar results

    Unless you really must use specific channels (I like mine to be side by side for fast one handed fadein / out mixes), the DJM 800 has 4 channels so you can use two and the other DJ the other two.

    However, at this place where I spin at once a week on my offdays (also using a DJM 800), I use channel 1 and 2's line inputs whilst the resident DJ uses channel 2 and 3's digital inputs. There's a little switch behind to toggle between line and digital input for each channel. We can't use channel 4 because the input gain is dodgy. He uses CDs direct though so it's a good thing the Pioneer DVJ 1000s there can output digital and analog at the same time so there's no need to swap cables at the players' outputs.

    anyone ever tried an ancient piece like a Pioneer CDJ-500 ?
    just arrived in Germany and have to play a small gig in Hamburg and forgot my vinyls (grrrrrrr) .. so I might have to use that one. .

    any comments appreciated.

    peace,

    Has anyone successfully used Pioneer CDJ 800 MK1's?
    I have an MK2 which works but potentially have to do a gig with 800 mk1's
