Hybrid MIDI mode for the Denon DJ SC2900

Denon DJ released a firmware update last week for their SC2900 Digital Controller and Media Player. This implements Hybrid MIDI mode for direct platter control in Scratch Live (in conjunction with supported Rane Scratch Live hardware). The Serato control tone is generated internally within the unit and now allows the use of Relative mode. All other controls on the unit can be MIDI mapped to Scratch Live and there are mapping files available from Denon DJ also. Here's the full press release from Denon DJ:

Firmware version v1050

Denon DJ is excited to announce a key performance enhancement to its SC2900 digital controller and media player.

The FREE firmware upgrade implements Hybrid MIDI mode, enabling SC2900 users to use various supported DVS applications such as Serato™ Scratch Live or Traktor Scratch for direct platter control in conjunction with Denon DJ’s “world’s-first” built-in Relative mode timecode signal generator (must be used with DVS-supported sound card or with a Denon DJ DVS-supported mixer).

From now on, traditional CD and flash drive sourced timecode is no longer required for RELATIVE mode operation because the necessary tone is perfectly generated internally, being output through the analogue RCA connectors of the SC2900 during Hybrid mode. For your convenience, Serato and Traktor mapping files also made available for Hybrid mode, or surrounding keys and knobs are freely available to MIDI map as user creativity desires.
