im wondering who uses their cdjs with this feature on at all times?

i always have it on lately since i started harmonically mixing. noticed that the kicks dissapear once a while at high or low tempo rates.

As long as you use it within +/- 6% it should be fine.

I use it all the time, is great, when you adjust the platter it makes no change in pitch at all.

I remember asking myself the same thing, i always worked with the MT on and i can't see any reasonable argument to keep it off..

I leave it off all the time

sounds - can hear the change in the sound as soon as you switch it on. It also comes out less bassy with the MT on

Pioneer CDJs have gotten better with the Master Tempo. I mean the CDJ-300s MT can't compare to the 100s, 800, 1000MK2 etc etc. However, I leave the MT off at all times, because sometimes I spin tracks @ + 8.0, and I want to feel the fast paste.

My exact feelings.

I never use it. Don't have a real reason to.

I use it when I need to, i.e. to mix harmonically compatible tunes at moderately different tempos.

I haven't used mine yet.. You loose some of the energy you would usually get out of the highs or any vocals you may have when you are pitched above 0. I spin Psytrance and I find the the energy level is significantly less when MT is on. Only good thing about it is that you can't hear when you correct pitch.. But I try to get my mixes nailed so there is little to no corrections needed. :)
