I am still loving my DJ pacemaker device but stuck on the last official firmware for my main device (I have quite a few of them just incase). I always found I couldn’t guarantee the accuracy of the looping feature if I recorded on device, so didn’t use it unless playing live. I did a blog about this a while back.
However yesterday I happened to be doing a mix and it crashed with a 201 error, loosing my currently recording mix. Very annoyed I decided to look at the lack of space left on the device (7gig left) as I don’t actually know how much working spare space it actually needs to run?
Then I started looking at the settings, I noticed loop travel which I always turned on for some reason thinking it was something good.
Deactivate/activate loop travel
This setting disallows/allows loop in-point to push end-point and vice versa.
- When in Mix mode, select Settings > Mix control > Loop travel >.
- Toggle between Off/On by swiping right
Now to be fair in the early versions of the Pacemaker firmware, the looping was hit and miss but in later versions its not needed for me.
So I turned it off did a test mix and what do you know it looped perfectly when listening back in the editor!
All this time, I avoided looping unless playing live because of this. You can imagine how happy I was going to sleep. It also means I can upgrade the firmware to the latest and get the added features.
Wait for the next lot of mixes!!!
