In reference to Android, Cross DJ version 2.3 and also 3.0.
During DJ set I usually jump between:
- Local Library / Playlist
- Folder Explorer
- sometimes: Local Library / Playlist / Search
1. Folder Explorer starts always from path "/": please consider to handle last browsed directory (in the current Session), or if it is more simple to put in Settings a settable "Browser from Folder" (e.g.: /storage/sdcard0/Music/...)
2. I thought a lot about what to propose for improve Library browsing, and this is my idea:
Suppose you want to mix songs from two or three Playlists (or Albums, or Artists, or Folders, or user Searches), now for next song you have to repeatedly type/touch the same things, and you lost time.
You may be create a new playlist, but during DJ set it's long and boring.
So I propose to insert an icon in Library to save the link (label alias bookmark) to the current page (Folder, Album, user Search result, ...) for an easy recall during session.
Links/Bookmarks may be on the top-right or in the Left menu.
For an automatic name, just #1, #2, #3... (like hotcue points) , or something more fully-developed.
They may be or not be permanent after session.
Thanks for your attention.
