Hercules MK4 dropping fast jog wheel

Postby s7726 » Fri Jul 26, 2013 5:55 am

I just got an MK 4 and the preset that comes with mixxx seemed to be too sensitive on the jog wheels ie. they moved too far through the track with small movements of the wheels. I changed the standard rpm value in the script to 45 instead and the sensitivity of the wheels feels better, they move a more appropriate distance for the given input.

The problem comes when I try to spin the jog wheel fast. Mixxx seems to jog faster to a point and then slow down, stop, or even reverse as I spin faster. I looked at the midi signals coming in with MIDI OX and it looks like the encoders in my MK4 are keeping up just fine.

Did I mess it up with the 33.33->45 change? Do I need to adjust other values as well?

Do I just need to suck it up and use the "faster" 33.33 setting?

Thanks

So I found a solution to the cause of my issue. Turns out there is a sensitivity setting in the drivers for the MK4. I put the script back to 33.33, and set the sensitivity lower. Still not sure if the skipping at the 45 setting is a bug or not though.
