djay Control Vinyl allows you to control djay on your Mac, iPad, or iPhone using physical turntables. Its unique patent-pending format pushes the boundary of DVS technology, offering instrumental and acapella versions of any song right on the B-side of the control vinyl - just like on a 12\" single from back in the day. Simply drop the needle onto one of three distinct tracks.
DDJ-200 is the Smart DJ controller by Pioneer DJ. Seamlessly integrated with djay on mobile and desktop devices, the DDJ-200 offers you an intuitive way to mix music on-the-go. Use djay for a cutting-edge wireless integration with the DDJ-200 using ultra-low latency via Bluetooth (requires iOS), or connect the DDJ-200 to your computer via USB (e.g. on Mac or Windows).
MIXON 4 is the first 4-channel high performance DJ controller that is compatible with djay on any supported phone, tablet, Mac and PC. MIXON 4 is able to connect iOS devices with a Lightning connection, while simultaneously charging your device. For the first time it is possible to place an iPad PRO (12.9'') into the docking station and experience the raw performance on up to four decks.
MIXTOUR has been designed from the ground-up to offer a compact, two-channel DJ controller layout which allows you to get the party started anywhere, anytime. This portable controller works with djay on any supported phone, tablet, or Mac/PC, and comes with a built-in audio interface and all necessary mixing controls.
To use a DJ MIDI controller with djay, simply plug the controller into your Mac, PC, iOS, or Android device. djay will detect the controller and automatically pre-map all functionality, allowing you to start using the controller right away. And of course you can easily edit the mapping yourself and customize the controller for your demands.
The crossfader is not being visible on screen, this is due to the fact that all audio mixing is done inside the controller, so djay does not control the fader positions. This is also why Automix is not supported with external mixer mode. On the plus side, thanks to external mixer mode the DDJ-SX3 has the ability to add its own audio effects to the mix
^^^Correct ^^^ djay pro 2 has quite a few features that djay pro does not. This is just one more of them is all. I am sure you could take the mapping for the SB3 from DP2 and import as is into DP with Mac and I am not sure this is the case with windows. The experience may fall short in this sense but in all fairness this is not exclusive to djay or even Algoriddim. Truth be told they have much more to lose from the Mac end then windows and this may contribute to the slower development times etc.
To save myself some reading had ANYONE here tried mapping the SB3 to windows (DP1 obviously) and if so had anyone had any success. To add to this where is djay pro at (function wise) with MIDI mapping overall with windows. IF anyone here has had success with mapping on the windows side at all this should be no issue. If you have a SB2 or SB the mapping should be very similar if not identical and to add to this any DDJ-S/DDJ-R (SX, SZ, SR etc) can work with very little modifying and renaming etc.
We are very excited to download and purchase DJay Pro for Mac. It is Awesome that so many controllers are supported, but which is best We do like pads for samples, nobs for modulation and solid construction.
I vote for the ReLoop Terminal Mix 4. A little hard to find though. Its Djay Pro, Virtual DJ, Serato DJ & Traktor compatible. In my opinion, it is the all around best controller to enter digital DJing with. From it, you can graduate to any larger pro DJ controller, utilizing any worthy DJ software on the market. Go get it!
Thank you for posting this thread. It was very helpful and I thought you might like to see the following data I compiled. I am looking for a decent controller for my laptop version of Djay. Normally I spend my time making music.
Check out the full range of Serato DJ Controllers - thanks to strong relationships with a huge list of manufacturers you'll find controllers from Allen ansd Heath, Numark, Reloop, Pioneer and Denon with kit to suit your needs and budget.
The DDJ-FLX6 features straightforward audio connections. Headphones connect to the front of the controller using both 1/4 inch and 1/8th inch TRS connections. Speakers connect to the two RCA line-level outputs on the rear, labelled master. The FLX6 also features a booth output on RCA line-level connections, for connecting a second pair of speakers. Both connections are colour coded with the red connection for the right speaker and white being for the left.
Before connecting the DDJ FLX6, ensure you have the latest version of Djay installed from the App Store. The USB-B port on the rear of the DDJ-FLX6 connects the controller and powers it. Using this supplied cable to connect iOS devices does require adaptors which we will link below.
For the best budget DJ controller, we have included the Numark DJ2GO2 in our list. At just over $50.00, this small but full-featured controller is ideal for throwing in your backpack in case of emergency renegade parties or as a backup when traveling.
The omission of a built-in audio interface and more limited connectivity options for this controller (like the lack of balanced XLR outputs) will undoubtedly put off some more professional DJs.
The wide range of Pioneer DDJ controllers are now compatible with RekordBox, Serato, and many fully integrated with Virtual DJ and the advanced features such as stem separation VDJ 2021 now offers.
If you want to use a controller with Virtual DJ you will need to buy a license as after a trial period of 7 days you will only get controller support in the first 10 minutes of opening Virtual DJ every time you wish to perform.
Mixxx can work with any controller that sends MIDI or HID signals toyour computer; it just needs a controller mapping to tell Mixxx what todo with the signals. Standards compliant MIDI controllers do not needany special drivers on Linux, macOS, or Windows. Standards compliant HIDcontrollers do not need any special drivers. Most DJ controllers arestandards compliant MIDI controllers and so are these in the tablesbelow. Exceptions from the standard are noted in the tables below.
Controllers that have integrated audio interfaces often have a USB AudioClass compliant audio interface. Sound cards that aren't USB Audio Classcompliant need a driver for each OS. USB Audio Class compliant audiointerfaces, both stand-alone and integrated into controllers, do notneed any special drivers for Linux or macOS. On Windows, they can beused without any special drivers, but a driver is needed from themanufacturer to use the recommended ASIO soundAPI.Sound cards that are advertised for use with iOS devices are classcompliant.
If you are considering buying a controller or audio interface, theeasiest way to tell if it is USB class compliant before you buy it is tosearch for macOS drivers for the device on the manufacturer's website,even if you do not use macOS. If it is advertised as compatible withmacOS but there are no drivers to download for macOS, it does notrequire drivers from the manufacturer on macOS because it is classcompliant. If it is advertised as compatible with iOS, it is classcompliant because Apple does not let manufacturers provide proprietarydrivers on iOS. USB class compliant audio, MIDI, and HID devices can beused with Mixxx on Linux, macOS, and Windows.
Do not add mappings to this list until they have been included in Mixxx.If you make a mapping for a controller, please add it to the #MappingsIn Development table and refer to theContributing Mappings page for instructionson how to get it included in Mixxx. When the pull request is merged,move your controller to this table.
These controllers have Mixxx mappings under active development. If youare considering getting one of these controllers, you are encouraged todo so. You can help the development of the mapping by testing it andproviding feedback to the developer. You can also edit the mappingyourself. Click the name ofthe controller for more information.
There are too many DJ controllers out there to list. Some of these controllers may have mappings (of unverified quality and may beincomplete) posted on the forums that have not(yet) been included with Mixxx. If a controller you own or are interested in getting is not listed here, search theforum to see if anyone has posted a mapping. If you are willing to put in the effort to map one of these controllers, please get the controller, map it, and contribute the mapping to Mixxx.
Native Instruments' newer DJ controllers are USB HID class compliant devices (source). The Windows and macOS drivers can translate the HID signals to MIDI, but this is not available on GNU/Linux. So, if you make a mapping for these controllers, please make an HID mapping so it is compatible with every OS that Mixxx runs on.
Native Instruments' first generation DJ controllers use a proprietary protocol called NHL that Mixxx does not support. The Windows and macOS driverscan switch these controllers to a MIDI mode by pressing certain buttons (see the Native Instrumentswebsitefor the button combination for each controller), which could be mapped to Mixxx. Unfortunately, because this is done by the driver and not the controller firmware, these controllers cannot be used as MIDI controllers on GNU/Linux. However, the snd-usb-caiaq driver in Linuxsupports the audio interfaces in at least some of these devices. It also registers the signals from some of the controllers as generic Linuxinput events. To get these devices to work with Mixxx on GNU/Linux, either the driver would need to be modified to translate these signalsto HID or MIDI, Mixxx would need to be able to read Linux input events, or a program would need to translate the Linux input events to HID or MIDI.
These devices allow a computer to output and input sound. Any audio interface that your operating system has a
