In the script function NumarkMixTrack.selectKnob, try changing
Code: Select all
engine.setValue(group, "SelectTrackKnob", -value);

into
Code: Select all
engine.setValue(group, "SelectTrackKnob", -value);

Hey,

I am new to mixxx and I must say its an amazing djing tool. I was wondering if anyone has made any changes to the Mixtrack Mapping?
The reason I am asking is I have come across some issues with scratching and nudging.

Like a previous poster posted, the scratching in Mixxx is not good at all. When using the scratching function, it sounds very artificial.
The other issue was if there was a way to have both the nudge function and scratching function enabled at the same time.

If I were to hold on the top of the jog wheel, it should stop the song. If I press on the outer ring, it should act as a nudge.

Great work again and hope to hear from you guys soon.

Hi there - recently purchased a mixtrack and downloaded the controller mappings off this thread - i'm looking to alter the response of the jog wheels - i know what file to edit and whereabouts but not sure which parameters to alter to get the feel im after. At present when finding the cue point of a track with the track stopped the response of the controller is about the right feel for me if a little 'slow' - it does seem to take a while to respond when you change direction (not latency just the feel of the track - almost a little 'elastic' if you get me??) However when using the jog wheels during playback (ie when beat mixing) the response of the controller is way too quick - even the slightest movement of the jog wheel speeds or slows the track way too much. I used to own pioneer cdj1000s and a cmx3000 - id like to get a feel similar to the jog wheels on those if at all possible.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Chris

First check the XML file to see if the jog wheel is mapped to one of the fixed "jog", "wheel", or "scratch" controls. If not, check the script function it's mapped to and see if it's using the engine.scratchTick() function. The wheel touch sensor should be mapped to engine.scratchEnable() on touch and engine.scratchDisable() on release. If not, change it/them to do so. (See the wiki: http://mixxx.org/wiki/doku.php/midi_scr ... scratching )

Hi,
back on the forum :)
For the scratching part, I am using the Mixxx engine.scratchTick(), but not mapped on the touch sensor. I feel that would be inappropriate, as I like to be able to turn the jogs to adjust my tracks while they are playing. However, the scratchEnable() function is mapped to "scratch" button that is located just next to the jogs.

I am not a big scratcher myself, and I thought that was fine... the thing is that on real turntables, you can choose to turn them more or less quickly depending on where you put your hand on the disc... this is unfortunately not possible on this midi controller...

I had a question: I really would like to have the speed a the track to resume its "regular" pitch while playing when my hand leaves a jog, to get the feeling I was having on direct drive turntables for instances. How can I do that ? It seems that the speed resumes slowly to its values... And maybe this is what smokin was referring to when using the term "elastic"
Issuing a engine.setValue(group, "jog", 0); does not work, jog being an additive value.

Here is my version of Numark Mixtrack layout. It is based on the layout that goes with 1.9.0, so thanks to its author ))
What i have done:
1. Keylock buttons.
2. Pitch sliders directions changed.
3. Selection knob directions changed.
4. In scratch mode scratching is activated by touching the touchwheel.
5. Scratch parameters changed. I'm not sure about them, as scratching is not my best, but anyways, for me it's ok now.
6. Keylock is automatically switched off when scratching.
7. Maybe smtn else, i don't remember ))

Known bugs:
1. If que (or play) button pressed during scratching then deck hangs.
2. With keylock on, when i scratch it switches off, and then as i took my fingers off the plate, keylock is switching on immediately. It can cause some weird sounds if the plate turns counterclockwise.

To do:
1. To fix the bugs ))
2. I would like cue and play buttons to work as they do on Pioneer turntables: pressing play button when previewing with que button continues playback so i can let my fingers off the buttons. It works the same way in Traktor LE.
3. I plan to map gain controls to some of FX knobs, as i almost don't use them to control fx.
4. I would like to open crates, playlists etc by pressing selection knob.
5. Maybe smtn else ))

I would like you guys who use Mixtrack to use my layout, to give me some ideas, to change it for your own taste and to repost it here )))
And excuse my english please, it is not my native ))

Re: Numark Mixtrack folder browsing hassle

Postby RAWRR » Tue Apr 12, 2011 8:46 am

Dunno if anyone else was bothered a lot by the browse knob on the Mixtrack failing completely at entering folders in Browse mode in the playlist, and instead acting as another back button, but I made a modification that at least makes it better until a fix can be completed. Its possible that my controller is just broken, but I don't think so, its pretty new. I'm assuming based on previous posts (that I only kind of understood) that at least one other user was noticing this same issue with their Mixtrack. Apologies for the useless entry if its just me.

Now, pressing your Mixtrack browse knob while highlighting a folder (or parent folder) should enter that folder, not jump you back to the tree on the left. The imperfection is that if you press the knob while highlighting a song, it "LoadSelectedIntoFirstStopped" acts. For me, I just remember not to press if I don't want that. Also, browse knob press won't select crates or playlists etc. when back in the tree over there. I never use them anyway, but apologies to those who need them. This is just a fix for those who rely on browsing folders.

I "fixed" it by learning the midi signal for browse knob press through reading the log file in debug mode, locating the corresponding entry in the Mixtrack mapping list in the preferences, failing to manipulate that to any advantage, checking other provided mappings for correct browse knob function with my Mixtrack, then deleting the lame entry from the provided Mixtrack mapping and adding a new entry duplicating the most functional one from the other deck's mapping. In this case I used the browse knob press mapping from the Ion Discover DJ. The change was to midi note 0x4F which was assigned "NumarkMixTrack.toggleDirectoryMode" and a script, channel 1, playlist, note on. What I replaced it with was everything the same except "NumarkMixTrack.toggleDirectoryMode" became "LoadSelectedIntoFirstStopped" and "script" became "normal". Maybe I could have just changed the values, but I didn't try that; I deleted one entry then made a new one.

Annyyywayyyy... here's the file. I'm just including the .xml because I did nothing to the .js.

Thanks, Matteo, for this configuration! So grateful for the work you shared! And thanks to all the Mixxx developers for this awesome program!!

Cheers everyone!

Hey all,

We got this bug filed on our tracker a little bit ago about the MIxtrack mapping: https://bugs.launchpad.net/mixxx/+bug/755565

Do any of you also have his problem with the effects?

Thanks,
RJ

Yeah I do too, sort of. I tried both matteo's and uncleeugene's mappings and they both had this issue - the only effect that seemed to kick in was the depth, the center one; the others were difficult to distinguish at all. The thing is though, I manipulated the controls on screen with the mouse as well and the response was the same. So maybe its not a Mixtrack mapping issue? Are other non-Mixtrack users having similar issues? With my controller still plugged in, I switched to another random mapping, one for Hercules, manipulated the controls onscreen with the mouse again, and the problem still happened.

Running WInXP SP2. Yeah I know, I know, I hate SP3 though. The soundcard is SoundMAX integrated digital audio on a Thinkpad G40. 1gb of RAM, not sure if the sound card itself has any RAM and I doubt it.

Ahh ok I get it now. Yea one of the flanger knobs actually doesn't do anything :). It's been that way for 5+ years I think. I'm surprised people only noticed now.
