[FIXED]

  • XDJ-700, XDJ-1000: Froze while touching the needle search strip and the jog dial at the same time.
  • When moving a loop forwards or backwards, it went out of sync even with QUANTIZE and SYNC on.
  • MASTER TEMPO was turned off when rebooted.
  • After changing the LABEL field and then using the tab button to navigate to the GENRE field, the keyboard focus disappeared and impossible to type in the GENRE field.
  • LOOP IN/out on CDJ blinked when calling MEMORY CUE while the CDJ-2000 was connected via Pro DJ LINK.
  • When calling HOT CUE/LOOP during Pause or Cue Standby in Export mode, the playback did not pause at the HOT CUE point.
  • DDJ-SB2: Headphones audio output level did not change when turning MIXING knob while PC MASTER OUT.
  • HOT CUE did not start on a deck when paused if GATE playback was disabled and SYNC was enabled.
  • When adding unanalyzed tracks and playing on a deck with QUANTIZE on, CUE point could not be set after analysis.
  • Some languages could not be read on Windows 10.
  • When HOT CUE was deleted, colour of the next HOT CUE changed.
  • Track analysis took long.
  • Loading of some video files to a deck took long.
  • The waveform zoom was not the same on some decks making beat matching almost impossible.
  • CDJ-2000: A LOOP instead of a CUE was set when a user tried to set a CUE.
  • Crash occurred when setting ACTIVE CENSOR IN/OUT.
  • Crash sometimes occurred when opening Preferences and changing settings.
  • Windows: Recording of Master out was unavailable while DVS was enabled because the Master out was switched to the DVS signal.
  • When multiple HOT CUEs were set and deleted one by one, sometimes they were not deleted.
  • Improved stability and fixed other minor issues.
