Easy customization: We have provided the following customization variables at the top of the script you can set to your liking:

  1. pitchRanges: Set the pitch slider range each time you toggle it.

Just open the controllers/Reloop TerminalMix4.js file in your favorite text editor and you'll see these variables right near the top. Edit & save and Mixxx will automatically reload the preset.

Deck controls

The controls are the same on both sides of the controller. The left side controls Deck 1 or 3 and the right side controls Deck 2 or 4.

  • Range button - Toggles the pitch slider range. (See top of page to customize.)
  • Keylock button - Toggles key lock.
  • FX knobs - These adjust the depth, delay and LFO period of the Flanger effect.
  • FX buttons - Toggle the flanger effect on Deck 1 or 2 (these don't switch to decks 3 and 4.)
  • Beats knob - Pressing this moves the beat grid to the current play position. (Turning it does nothing.)
  • Tap button - Tapping this in time with the music adjusts the BPM of the track to match. It also flashes on each beat.
  • Loop length knob - Turning this doubles or halves the current loop. Pressing it toggles the loop.
  • Loop in/halve button - Sets the loop in point. When shifted, halves the length of the current loop. Flashes when a loop is active.
  • Loop out/double button - Sets the loop out point. When shifted, doubles the length of the current loop. Flashes when a loop is active.
  • Loop move knob - Turning this moves the position of the current loop by a half beat per detent. Pressing it sets a 4-beat loop at the current position. Pressing it with shift held down toggles quantize (locking loop in/out and cue points to the nearest beat.)
  • Hot cue buttons - Press to set or recall a hot cue. The buttons light up when one is set. Hold shift and press to delete the cue.
  • Scissor button - Switches hot cue page for access to hot cues 5-8
  • Sampler buttons - These light up when a sample is loaded to the corresponding sampler and flash when that sampler is playing. Press to play the sample from the beginning. When shifted, press to stop the sample.
  • Vinyl/Search button - Press and release to toggle scratching with the wheel (and the on-screen vinyl widget.) Hold down and turn the wheel to seek through the track.
  • Wheel
    • Move the wheel while touching the top black area to scratch the current track like a vinyl record if vinyl mode is enabled
    • Move the wheel without touching the top (so on the gray sides) to perform a temporary pitch bend.
  • >< (Sync) button - Synchronizes the tempo and beat phase of this deck to that of the other. (Only works between decks 1 & 2 in v1.11.x.)
  • CUP button - This stands for Cue-Play which starts playback from the cue point. This is also known as stutter play.
  • Q (Cue) button - Sets or recalls the main cue point on the track
  • > || (Play/Pause) button - Toggles playback of the track.

Mixer controls

Channel strips

The below controls adjust the specified parameter of the respective virtual deck.

  • Gain knob - Adjusts the pre-fader gain
  • High/Mid/Low EQ knobs - Adjust the volume of the respective frequency range
  • Filter knob - Performs a pseudo-filter effect by adjusting multiple EQ knobs at once (until Mixxx gets a proper filter effect.)
  • Headphone button - Toggles hearing the deck in the headphone output
  • Number button - Press to load the currently highlighted song into that deck. Shift and press to toggle fader-start (on the channel fader and cross-fader when applicable.) The button flashes when fader-start is enabled on that deck.
  • Channel slider - Adjusts the output volume

The below controls are not deck-specific.

  • Master knob - Adjusts the master output volume of the internal sound card. (This is not mapped in Mixxx.)
  • Booth knob - Adjusts the booth output volume of the internal sound card. (This is not mapped in Mixxx.)
  • Phones knob - Adjusts the headphone output volume of the internal sound card. (This is not mapped in Mixxx.)
  • Cue mix knob - Adjusts in hardware how much of the headphone bus vs the master output you hear in the headphones. (This is not mapped in Mixxx.)
  • Sampler volume knob - Adjusts the volume of all of the samplers at once.
  • Crates button - Does nothing at the moment. (Mixxx's library doesn't yet support direct panel selection.)
  • View button - Does nothing at the moment.
  • Prep button - Does nothing at the moment.
  • Back button - When lit, the Trax knob moves the highlight in the active library panel. When unlit, the knob moves the highlight in the left tree.
  • TRAX knob - Turn to move the highlight. Press to switch to the highlighted library panel (when the Back button is unlit,) or to load the currently selected track into the first stopped deck (when the Back button is lit.)

Cross-fader section

Move the cross-fader to smoothly fade between the decks assigned to either side.

Deck assign

Use the four switches on the front of the unit to choose on which side of the cross fader that deck will be heard. (Note that the fader-start functionality correctly follows this assignment.) If “thru” is selected, the cross-fader will not affect the audio from that deck.

Curve adjust

Use the knob to adjust the curve from a smooth fade to a fast cut.

The remaining controls on the front of the unit adjust hardware parameters and are not MIDI-mappable.
