Hi, I'm new to this board. I am so glad to see an open-source DJ mixing solution and a great community of developers. It is very inspiring.
I'm trying to get a DM2 to work with Mixxx. I'm using Joe Matiello's OSX DM2 driver in Mixxx mode. I have a 2008-vintage 2.6ghz MacBook Pro running Leopard.
I can get to a point where Mixxx clearly recognizes the controller, and the crossfader works fine. As soon as I touch the scratch ring, however, the playing audio file starts playing in one direction at hyperspeed, and I can't stop it. When I say hyperspeed I mean 30-45 seconds to go through an entire song. This happens on both channels. I have to quit the program at that point.
What I find strange is that the freeware program "Midi Monitor" shows MIDI information that looks relatively smooth. When I touch the scratch ring, it sends values above 64 for the forward direction, slowing to and ending with 64 when I stop touching the scratch ring, for example. So I think something must be up with the way the program is interpreting the MIDI information it receives.
I'd love to test earlier versions of Mixxx but I don't know where to find them.
I suppose I haven't tested enough MP3 files to confirm that this is a recurrent problem no matter what type of soundfile I use. If anyone else can recommend other ways I can test this setup I'd greatly appreciate it. I'm intrigued by using my old DM2 with Mixxx!
Thanks for your help.
