Pioneer has just released a new update for the DJM-T1 mixer, allowing DJs to customise 220 TRAKTOR SCRATCH DUO 2 features and parameters directly from the mixer.
The update (download here
) introduces Advanced Shift, the gateway to more advanced features with 75 new controls using a second Shift layer on the mixer, almost tripling the number of Midi controls.
The DJM-T1 TRAKTOR certified mixer is complete TRAKTOR solution in one unit. A hybrid mixer, controller and audio interface, it mirrors the included TRAKTOR SCRATCH DUO 2 software to give DJs control over all the most important performance and playback functions in layer 1 without touching the computer.
The Shift mode already gave access to another layer of control, like Loop Move, Sample Deck Volume and Editing, Instant Doubles, and more.
Now, the Advanced Shift firmware update adds a new, 3rd layer of control to the unit. DJs can customise 220 TRAKTOR SCRATCH DUO 2 features and parameters directly from the mixer, without going into the software settings or touching the mouse.
Advanced Shift doubles the availability of some of the key TRAKTOR functions. Want 4 FX Banks? The new firmware gives you 4 FX Banks. The usual 4 Hot Cues and Loops can become 8. Plus Advance Shift brings sophisticated controls to your finger tips like Master Tempo, individual Sample clip volume control, Grid and Cue editing along with popular functions like Record.
Key functions enabled by Advanced Shift include:
- Control over to two more FX Banks
DJM-T1 users could already assign a total of six sound FX across two banks. But with Advanced Shift mode you can control and assign another two FX banks in Traktor Pro, meaning a total of 12 effects can be assigned and controlled from the mixer.
- Double the number of Hot Cues
Both decks now offer a total of eight Hot Cues and related Loops, and there?s control to move the play head around for precise Hot Cue placement.
- Access and input TRAKTOR grid information
It?s now possible to access the advanced settings panel for Grid, Cues and Move, directly from the controller and DJs can correct some basic Grid functions, which are critical for the Sync function.
- Adjust individual Sample Deck volumes and modes
In addition to switching samples between One Shot, Loop mode, and adjusting overall Sample Deck volume, Advanced Shift makes it possible to adjust each Sample Slot volume.
