Hercules DJ Control AIR+ S

Hello !

Does anyone have a mapping for the "Hercules DJ Control AIR+ S" controller ?

I own this but there's only mapping preset for the "Hercules DJ Control AIR" and, of course it doesn't work.
I've tried to use the learning wizard but some controls working bad.

Best regards.

Hi, did you have any luck?
I have the same controller, and plan to manually map as much as possible during the next weeks. I already found the VDJ mapping for this controller, which has all the midi bytes included, so it should be possible.

It's far from complete, but the most essential stuff I need is working.
I hope it helps.

I'll post updates if I find any bugs, learn better scripting or have any other improvements.
Also, feel free to tweak, update and share.


/Update 15.01.2018: Rec Key is now working. I just haven't figured out how to let the LED stay on as long as Mixxx is recording. Also added SoftTakeover for the appropriate controls.

Here are my files working with Mixxx 2.1.4.
The configuration is based on other previous files but now with some personal adjustments.

The shift button is used :
-with the jog to move through the folders tree
-to clear the hot cues

It's still not complete.
If it can help...

Here is my take on the mapping for the DJControl AIR+/ AIR+ S (exact same device with cosmetic changes) for the latest version of Mixxx (2.20):


Sync = Sync lock // SHIFT + SYNC = Sync master

Cue = Cue point // SHIFT + CUE = Return to beginning of loaded song.

Play = Play/Pause // SHIFT + Play = Cue Stutter

Vinyl = Scratch On/Off (Default: ON)

PADS - Hot Cue:

Set and trigger Hot Cue 1-4 // SHIFT + Pad = Delete Hot Cue 1-4.

PADS - Samples:

Trigger Sampler 1-4 (Deck A)
Trigger Sampler 5-8 (Deck B)

BANK 1 - FX Mode:

FX 1-3 on/off // SHIFT + Pad = FX 1-3 Select
PAD 4 = FX Rack 1/2 On/Off (Deck A/B respectively)

BANK 2 - Loop:

Beatloop 1/2 / 1 / 2 / 4 beats


Browser Knob = Playlist up/down - Directory up/down .
Browser button = Switch between Playlist and Directory.

LOAD A = Load track to deck A
LOAD B = Load track to deck B

Mic Button = Activate microphone input (in hardware).
REC Button = Maximize/minimize library
Magic Button = AutoDJ On/Off

Cue Button = Switch monitor cue level to max.
Mix Button = Switch monitor cue mix to 50%.

Other controls as labeled.

Made a few changes to the mapping:

Changes to v1.1

- Controller knob/slider values are queried on startup, so MIXXX is synced.
- Fixed vinyl button behavior the first time it's pressed.
