Hey Guys

Just Opening the thread for the Mapping, I've already preordered my controller and I am not a developer by any means, So when anybody has any help on the mapping post away!

I haven't pre-ordered, but this is likely my next controller as well. Did some work on a DDJ-SB mapping a few months back and was looking at either this or the DDJ-SB2. Only reason I'm going with the MC4000 is the input/output and pitch fader.

Looking forward to getting my hands on some MIDI message documents or the board itself, itching to get started on this

The MIDI Commands are documented in the Appendix of the User Guide that can be found on the product page:

Thanks tapir, I'll take a look into that this week. Save for the fact the pads can be different colors (neat!) and the vu LEDs can be controlled separately or together (channel/master vu?) everything looks straight forward.

hi guys,

As I can see there has been nothing new for the MC4000 for a long time, but I am committed to get this up and running. I've just bought the controller, and so far I have the basic XML more or less done.

I need some more time time to get my head round of the Javascript functionality (I am an amateur python coder) so all the controls work properly.

I will keep you posted.

Hi everyone :)

Has someone created a mapping for the MC4000 that is available to download?

I've just bought this controller, and I'm hoping to use it with mixxx - don't want to start from scratch if the donkey work has already been done!

I've had a quick look around but I can't see any existing files? (probably just not looking hard enough...?)

All the best
:)
Hardy

I'm also about to buy one of these... Could those who have put any significant work into creating the mappings please create a gist on github or something so that we can make the mapping collaboratively?

My unit is going to arrive in a few days. I guess we'll be able to use the existing MC3000 and MC6000MK2 mappings as a base:

This unit is actually more a Numark than a Denon controller. Adopting an existing mapping from another Denon controller might be of limited use. Please also have a look at the Numark mappings.

After a quick look at the MIDI codes I see lots of differences compared to the MC6000MK2. Fortunately the mapping for the MC4000 actually seems to be easier to accomplish than that for the MC6000MK2 :)

Ah yeah it looks like the MC4000 codes are completely different from both the MC6000 and the Mixtrack 3... Maybe I'll just generate the XML using the GUI tomorrow if nobody shares their base mapping.
