New Cue Points Type and rewiev
I thought about an addition and a graphic-stylistic revision of the Cue Points markers.
Grid, Load, Cue, Loop, Fade-in, Fade-Out
CUE MARKER - review: (Color CUE)
CUE works the same way, I would add a selection of 10 colors, I would change the icon by updating it, or the icon can stay the same but we add the ability to set different colors.
LOOP MARKER - review
At the LOOP marker I would insert a circle appearing on the screen with the quantity of beats in loop 4,8,16... as already happens in the APP version
I would also add the possibility of setting that Marker LOOP as ACTIVE LOOP which is activated automatically without doing it manually (optional active loop on/off function)
LOAD AUTOGRID - new:
As a standard setting we need to set a GRID marker to synchronize the grid to the beats, but if we would like that point to also be a HotCue LOAD where the head would be positioned when we load a song, we would have to occupy 2 buttons of the already limited 8 that Traktor makes available .
With a new type of Hotcue "Load AutoGrid" you could combine the two features and free up 1 button.
I would also propose that the Grid markers were not assignable to buttons 1-8 as they are not always hotcues for reference positions in a song (they only serve the BPM time grid), perhaps this is something to consider for the upcoming, hopefully, dynamic grid.
LABEL CUE - new:
These markers are markers that cannot be assigned to physical buttons 1-8, they are only visible markers on the track where the DJ can mark points for example:
Yellow where he can put a JINGLE
CYAN where the speaker can speak
or other uses that imagination and need make available..
You could certainly use the (coloured) CUEs, you will surely think, but in this way we will waste buttons that could be used for other things even in live use, e.g. beatjump with hotcues...
LOOK CUE POINTS:
Every SINGLE CUE Point should be able to be blocked so as to avoid accidental deletion, both when we prepare the lists and, more likely, during a live evening at the disco. (LOCK CUE POINT)
[ LOCK HOTCUE BUTTONS 1-8 ]
The possibility of blocking the insertion of accidental Hotcues, if I have a free button and while the song is playing, accidentally pressing the free button on the controller is automatically stored (useful function, but if done accidentally it ruins the track settings with new points that are of no use), by blocking the new entry of HC we are sure of using only those preset by us (and also blocked)
[ RESTORE HOTCUE - only locked ]
A function that eliminates from the selected songs all the inserted Hotcues that do not have the padlock set, so as to restore the songs with only the hotcues set, validated and protected by the padlock.
Set Recallable Hotcues 1-8 (current version) as standard.
Give the ability to extend recallable hotcues to 1-16 / 1-32.
Maybe for different needs, other users could connect other MIDI Controllers with more buttons to assign from 9-32, (but I think 1-16 are already enough)
