Inversion of Sync, Play and Cue BUTTON

Postby MakioDJ on 04 Mar 2016, 14:20

Hallo, I have CrossDJ-PRO Ver 3.0 for Android. I noticed that the sequence on how buttons appears on DECK1 compared to Deck 2 are different. Not identic and not simmetric (mirror). They appears in the following way:
Deck A: CUE, Play, Sync
Deck B: Sync, CUE, Play
I would expect or the same order or a symmetric order where the central button will be the same for both decks (Sync, Play, CUE; CUE, Play, Sync). Is this a bug? Is there a function to change the orders of this buttons ?
Thank you in advance,
MakioDJ

Many designs have been there over time. Both in apps as in hardware (not just with MixVibes). Also other buttons can be there, like Stutter.

In the Android/iOS design is chosen to have the sync buttons in the center for easy view of speed.. and the Cue Play in the same order....

Each order has its pro's and con's.. The longer you'll use hardware and software the less you'll care.. not many buy a player because of the order of the buttons.. And if you have to play at a gig you usually work with what you get.. unless you bring your own..

Dear Ronald, thanjs for your answer. Sorry, may be I did not express well the question. I really don't care the positiin of buttons in the software or in hard real consolle. The user can adapt at what he gets. I just mean that inside the same software I expect the same position for deck A and deck B. Same position or symmetric position.
Instead, in my case (ver 3.0 + Android M), I find, from left to right:
Deck A, buttons 1, 2, 3
Deck B, buttons 3, 1, 2
Wich is not logic. In details, if on deck A the Sync button is at extreme left side, I would imagine that on deck B, Sync button should be placed at extreme left or extreme right, and not in the middle... just like it happens to me...
I hope I was clear in explaning... anyway thank you.
The software is great and I am having so much fun that makes me smiling more than djing on turntables :)

Pretty sure I understand you.

This however is a practical way. By having the syncs centered you have the bpm visible, even when fingers on cue and play.
Also seeing sync is active for a deck can avoid unwanted behaviour.

So having the orders you suggest not necessarily are to be preferred.
