I don't see any information in those linked threads indicating that this controller can't be mapped. To the contrary, it is a USB class compliant MIDI device. Perhaps there is a MIDI message that the mapping needs to send it to initialize it. It would just be a matter of intercepting that message from Serato and sending the same message in the init function of the Mixxx mapping.

I think you may have been confused by the statement that Numark has an exclusive agreement with Serato so they can't provide a mapping for other software. That does not mean that someone else can't map it to other software.

many people and i asked this to the numark support and they behave like they didn't hear/understand the real question and answer it like it is a different question. (sorry for my english).

this is not a regular midi message (or mapping). i sent all the codes above with different variations.
ok then, we'll see.

Numark's contract with Serato might forbid them from actually answering the question.

It is probably a system exclusive (sysex) message that you need to send.

Which OS are you running Serato on? On Mac you can use MIDI Monitor. On Windows you can use MIDI OX.

hi again Be.
this is not the case. i don't want to work with a company which don't want me to be its customer. i could figure it out, i am a software developer but i don't want to send sex messages to my "controller" to "turn it on" (it should be already turned on). :)
currently i am working to map my new, beautiful and far better DENON DJ MC4000, i will publish it here soon; because they even gave the midi codes in user manual.

The Denon MC4000 already has a mapping.

it has error with jogwheel and many buttons don't work. i've already done a better mapping in two days.

Huh? Where did you get the mapping from? Are you using it with Mixxx 2.0 or 2.1 alpha? Please don't clutter this thread any more and let's take further discussion about the MC4000 to its thread.

I just got this controller and started mapping it. So far making good progress. I'll post another update when I have something more concrete, but I believe I can get everything working, including the LCD screens. Stay tuned.

Update: I'm about 65% done with this. Most of the controls work. Screens work, jog wheels work (there are some issues I may need to work around, will get into that in another post), all 4 decks work, vu meters work. The controller is useable.

I still need to map the effects buttons, figure out what to do with the wheel button (I think I am just going to keep it lit all of the time), map the loop button output LEDs, and complete the startup and shutdown sequence code (right now it just takes the controller out of demo mode, but it needs to init some leds and the screens a little more). I also need to decide whether to make the sync button behave like serato (enable master sync on one press), or like mixxx (hold for master sync).

As for the screens, they are 98% functional. The things that I skipped are the slip mode indicator (I couldn't figure out how to get mixxx to do slip mode), and the up and down arrows to tell you which direction to move the pitch for beat matching (I may still do these). Everything else works just like in serato.

Anyway, if anyone wants to play with this now, in it's unfinished state, I can upload it to github. Just let me know.
