Forum: General Discussion
I looked and couldn't find a similar thread. I am about to pull the trigger on a new MC6000 MK2. I am a mobile (since 1987) and I like to use a rack to transport and protect my gear. This seems like the best option that is rack mountable. If anyone who has already gone this route would like to chime in, I would love to hear your experiences with the 6000 and any tips on setting it up. I read that the Denon ASIO driver was not recommended to go with waspi or something like that? I am more about the music than the tech so getting it up an running will be my biggest hurdle. I currently use a DP2 and a DDJ-S1 depending on my gig. I do beatmix and I would love to use the jog wheels.

I have used two MC6000 mk1 for a long time, and they have been great!!
Have tried it both rackmount in a SKB case and in a smaller Magma case. Small and efficient piece of kit.
Never used the mk2 though, upgraded recently to MCX8000 and a Pioneer DDJ-1000, which I think the DDJ is my favourite at the moment.
I used the Denon ASIO without problems, but many people say they are unstable. For proactive reasons I used it in WASAPI mode with perfect performance the last year.
And, you will find NO issues what so ever setting the unit up. As soon as VDJ sense you have it connected, you just press Use MC6000 in audio config and everything pops up as it should.

It's really old technology these days, but neither Denon or anyone else have come out with a suitable rack mount solution to replace it. A few of them are also suffering with motherboard failure.
As stated above avoid the Denon ASIO drivers.

I too have the first MC6000 but not the MK2. I've been pretty happy with it, other than needing to disassemble it from time to time to clean the button contacts. It's coming up on eight years old. My previous laptop, an HP, worked great with the ASIO driver. My current laptop, a Lenovo, just won't work with it no matter how I tweak things, so I use WASAPI.
I wish I could help you with the MK2,

I have the MC 6000 MKII already for a couple of years. Actually it's just plug and play. VDJ recognizes the mixer and asks if I want to use that sound card. I have it in combination with a Macbook pro. Never had problems with it.

Hi there I had denon mc6000 mk1! it's good very stable, the controller sounded very clear and have very nice sound even sound card was only 16 bit, but switches are very cheap play/pause stay away from it, if you got money for better controller go for any Pioneer! they got very good switches they will not fail, they will last!

Thanks for all the comments, I am excited to give it a shot. I should be up and running by New Years - HOPEFULLY

Personally I've never had a problem with the Denon Asio, however are there any advantages to using WASAPI?
And if you want to use the fab new VDJ Ableton Link feature - which I believe requires an ASIO driver when using Windows - would the 'ASIO4ALL' driver do if one was having problems with the Denon Asio driver?

I ve been using DENON MC6000 MkII since 2016. Without a doubt, it’s the most “complete” Dj Controller on the market with such a small size. With other words, there hasn’t been better controller in the market (till now) in these dimensions.
The only “problem”, is with ASIO drivers, because of “roughly” programmed. Personally, after many settings – tests – results – discussions on Greek forum, I abolished them and I use only WASAPI (with satisfactory results).
ASIO4ALL aren’t drivers! If anyone is interested in, he can search the forum for a post of PhantomDj and learns all the facts…
