midi learn on iPad

There are a slew of controllers I wish were supported (faderfox in particular), midi learn for iPad would make that possible! Another approach if midi learn on ipad will never happen, would be to create midi mapping on OSX and transfer a config file over.

I do feel like support for more midi controllers is necessary, Numark iDJ Live doesn't even have 3 band eq!

    + But also make it possible to create a midi map in PC and then transfer the config file to Ipad.

    Midi learn is really a matter of buy or not to. 3band eq lack is why I haven't bought this piece o hardware yet

    esp if we can map for the desktop app, and use for iPhone/ipad. this would give djay value that traktor doesn't have

    Hello,

    djay for iphone/ipad is a fine app, especially now that multi-audio routing is supported, but it still needs a few features to make it a perfect fit for professional dj sets:

    - MIDI learn, so we can use any class-compliant USB midi controllers through the camera connection kit. It if fine to have features devices for djay, but I already have tons of midi controllers (and I think I'm not alone ^^) so if can setup djay on my controllers as I like to, it would be a dream setup!

    - "modulable" deck/effect panel, as a DJ mixing electronic music I have no interest in scratching thus the deck are more like a waste of space to me: it would be nice to be able to replace the decks by effects pad or EQs (as most DJ I need EQs, all the time!!), while still having the current effect/eq/cue window open. This is already possible on some other DJ apps (like cross DJ) and would be a welcome addition to djay.

    Thanks for supporting djay!

    As iCloud is already supported under the hood ,sharing the MIDI mapping files with the Mac OS X version should be not that difficult. This instead of workarounds that I read about in combination with Jailbreaking the iPad and added the mapping files that way the iPad app (I don't like that).

    It think there are many people are willing to buy both Mac OS X version and the iPad version when this kind of feature is added.

    I only can imagine this is not done, because of some kind of deal with hardware vendors currently supported. But lets stay positive and hope that this will be supported in the near future, though it was not added in V2 of the iPad app which I just bought.

    One more thing, it would be great if we could also chain bind actions to a single midi input like in traktor pro.For instance, bind a button to do autocrossfade, lower the bass on playing track and bring up the bass on the new track. I use this feature on traktor a lot. I even have 4 dedicated buttons on my controller just for these "on the fly" transitions, all of them with different fx or fx combos...for example, i have autocrossfade, cross bass on decks A and B, 4 beat riser sample from deck C and freeze delay on playing track and peak filter + iceverb to bring in the new track for a more dramatic transition. All this is done with a single keypress. Ofcourse im also setting the parameters for each fx, eg. dry/wet gradually increasing troughout the transition. Many other cool things can be done with this.

  • Hi phain,
    you are the first person who uses traktor I've seen who isn't complaining about this app!! I use pioneer rekordbox with xdj aero.

    Have you used Djay for a full dj set ? Is it stable enough for 6-8 hours dj set?

    Hey Bob,
    Fooled around with it at my friends club. I came there for a drink and he asked me to go in the booth and spin some music while we wait for a dj he had booked. Did 2 hours straight till the guy showed up. I had no problems with it whatsoever tho my performance was limited (i use remix decks a lot, like to do mashups and transition with some fx combos). Still was kinda laidback, no pressure performance, people liked it, i even left the booth for couple of mins thanks to automix :). I see great potential in this software and if only i could connect my controller to it and have a remix or track deck extra plus some more fx i'd take it out for a full night serious gig.

  • Hi phain, thanks for your reply!
    I also took it out to my club in it's old form (even before any controller was added). It also worked for me, but the output was terrible back then. The new update is cool. I want to ditch rekordbox (cos pioneer are not good at apps!! ) Then use it 5-6 nights a week at work, every night. I wish algoriddim would listen to the real djs. I want to use it with my controller. I'm not fussed about using it with spotify! That's a gimmicky trick for guys sat in the office.

    This could re write djing + iPad rules....if they open it up more.

    Hey Bob,
    Spotify integration is not even on my wishlist. Midilearn, extra deck, more fx, samples that can be synced with playing tracks, 2 finger loop selecting on the waveform and a dedicated loop button on the main screen...just a few that i can think of from the top of my head...not to mention fx section needs to be fixed(volume drop when using an fx) but that's problem fixing not implementatin of new things...
    You should try Traktor DJ. I got it for free from appstore as an anniversary gift from NI,not sure if it's still free(regular price was 19,99 i think). It has some very good features and is reliable. Has better looping functionality, more cues (can cue up loops too,) awesome slicing of the waveform, key detection and track suggestion based upon key, genre and bpm...I like it very much...tho the only controller you can use with it atm is NI's own Traktor Kontrol Z1.
    Cheers.

I hoped i could get somone with a mac to use midilearn with my controller Reloop Digital Jockey 2 CE and then copy that file on my ipad but it turns out that apple protected the ios app files from editing in recent update. So, stuck at 6.1.3 ios version atm I have to wait for the release of ios7 jailbreak :(

  • Hi plain!
    I got the z1 controller for traktor! It's pretty awesome!! Very cost effective compared to my pioneer set ups. I'm trying it on my third club night in a row tonight. There's a bit of a learning curve as I play all styles of music, so u have to manipulate the master tempo and efx to do drastic tempo changes..but so far so good!! I had the app when it first came out but wasn't sure, but now after a major play with it I'm into it ! Thanks .

    i wish djay would hurry up with midi learn (before I decide to sell my aero and go completely z1...)

    Hi Guys

    Good news! You can remap any of the existing Djay for Ipad midi mappings and create as many new ones as you like too!!!!

    I have completely remapped the two controllers I own. That's the Numark DJ2GO & Pioneer DDJ-wego. I added a shift key to the dj2go which allowed me to double it's functionality and let me use the sample feature in djay 1 that was hiding there only for use with the Numark djpro. I added a second shift key to the wego to get past their nonsense use of the sample button on/off thing that makes you select a fog horn when we really wanted cue2 and hitting cue 3 when you wanted a drum beat (because its easy to forget the state of the sample button). Now the cues are always available and I hold down the sample button (second shift key) to select the samples.

    Anyway how did I do it. JAILBREAK I hear you say. NO, you don't need to, but you can do much more if you do.

    1: Easy way to remap your controller.
    If you have a Mac. Download DJAY for Mac trial. Plug in your controller, go to midi mapping and change it to the way YOU want to use it. You get 15 mins trial time so save the settings before it times out, then go back in and carry on.
    This creates a new edited file. Eg. Numark DJ2GO Edit.djayMidiMapping or Pioneer DDJ-WeGo Edit.djayMidiMapping
    Search for your file using pioneer,Numark,vestax,ion Etc

    Rename the file by simply taking out the Edit ie.
    Numark DJ2GO Edit.djayMidiMapping becomes.
    Numark DJ2GO.djayMidiMapping

    Then load up Funbox or Winscp, ifile if jailbroken and find the djay or djay2 directory.
    In there open the midimapping directory and replace the mapping file with the one you just created (BACKUP the original).

    That's it!!! Make sure you restart Djay so it uses the new file.

    I don't have a MAC, yes I did this on a PC. Downloaded a Mac emulator and then ran djay for Mac on it. YES you can use djay for Mac on a windows pc laptop with a remapped controller and DJ with it (not recommended but it worked with sound,mic and everything)!!!!

    2. A little harder. Do it the way I did first.
    Just use Funbox or Winscp or ifile to extract the midi mapping files you want from the ipad. Have a look through all of them to see the features you want from controller mapping files other than yours, then add and edit the file of your controller to get what you want.
    It was by looking at the Numark djpro file that I knew had samples in it that I added the functionality to dj2go which has very limited functionality ( I also added, shiftkey,record,automix,gain,key lock,transition left,right etc)

    3. ADD a new controller that is not supported!!!!
    Download a free app that allows you to see what midi info is coming out of your controller. DJ Player free works fine. Go into the midi mapping section of the program plug in your controller and note down the name that comes up ie. NumarkDJ2go. Case sensitive.
    Then start moving controls and noting down the channel number and key number. Just start off with cross fade and start/pause.

    Now go and take any mapping file as a template,rename it with the exact name of the controller as above and then open the file (with a free plist editor) and search for endpointName under that you will see the name of the controller you need to change to the real name of your controller.
    Just by changing that, your controller should now be detected (obviously it will come up with the logo of the original file but ignore that).
    Once detected, feel free to change any control mappings.

    ********************************
    Why did I do it in the first place when both my controllers were already supported??????

    Simple. Because someone created the mappings that either weren't dj's, were pc programmers or decided that it would be how the majority of users would want it.

    taking the little dj2go as an example. If you are using the cross fade manually it all works fine. But lets say the cross fade is on the right and and you have automix on or you pressed the auto transition to the left button on the screen. Now the screen cross fade is on the left and your dj2go cross fade is on the right...... As soon as you touch the dj2go cross fade the screen cross fade senses that and shoots over to the right, cuts your song, loads a new one and all hell breaks loose. NOW! Buy adding the "pickup" command to the cross fade in the mapping file, the dj2go cross fade won't have any control of djay until you move it to the same position it is on the screen where it "Picks up" the onscreen cross fader.
    The same thing happens with the volumes controls. Lets say deck one fader volume is set to full on your controller, and for some reason "because you can" you reduce the volume on the onscreen control....Now. As soon as you touch the controller fader the volume will shoot back up to maximum and all hell breaks loose. Adding pickup to that command sorted out that issue for me too.

    ANYway. Long and short of it. I want the pickup command on my cross fade and someone else doesn't because it suits their style....we shouldn't have to make do.

    I support Algoriddim. I have bought the following:
    Djay for iPhone
    Vjay for iPhone
    Djay for ipad
    Vjay for ipad
    Djay 2 for ipad

    Ps. Algororiddim please don't disable this functionality in an update like apple do. I have stayed with djay because I could get the extra functionality which some other apps already have. As soon as you add a midi mapper to djay2/3 this will all be history......but until then.

    And where the hell have the pickup shadows gone from the speed controllers in djay1 ??????? Please bring them back for speed & cross fade and any other analogue controls that can be be used independently on the screen or midi controller.

    Or just create and publicate default midi CC chart used for any unsupported midi device, so anyone will be able to configure controller or use soft like MidiBridge to apply translations.

    I'm dreaming about Djay2, that starts playing on MIDI Contiune message when I start recording in auria/cubase to have everything in sync.

    This is very important to me. I use VJAY and video out ties up the lightning port. If VJAY had midi learn I could use mi.1 (midi over bluetooth) with faderfox lv1 (classic knob box) to have the combined power of a physical hardware controller AND video output.

    mi.1 for those who are interested in exploring this thought/option
    https://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/M...
    https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/mi...

    retronyms are also working on a product called WEJ which supports bluetooth midi + MIDI mapping which would make MIDI learn ask unnecessary... if that work around sounds good throw your money at them so they meet their goal (I've already preordered): http://preorder.retronyms.com/

    This is really still a topic? Oh well, I would also like to request the ability to midi map my ios Djay app as I am a professional dj who uses a wego 3 for small gigs, most of the time with VDJ8 and sometimes with Djay 2 on my ipad. I would gladly use Djay more often if I could tweak some of the mapped controls to more closely match my primary software. Then again, this is a 3-year-old thread so I guess I'll not hold my breath.

    • So how can I get a map for my traktor s2 and import it.
    • Two choices i think.
      1: use a mac with the demo version of djay and set up your traktor on there and then copy over the midimapping file to the ipad filesharing directory in itunes.

      2:
      a: Find out the unique name that your traktor s2 outputs when it connects to djay.
      b: take a standard djay midi mapping file ie. pioneer wego3 and replace the line (has endpoint in it) in the mapping file that contains the name "pioneer wego3" with the name of your traktor. you will then find that djay recognizes your controller (although it will pop up with the pioneer logo), but nothing yet works.
      c. now modify and add the midi mapping controls within the file to make everything work.

      ******

      just looked back at what i wrote above one year ago when this method only worked if you were jailbroken.

      3. ADD a new controller that is not supported!!!!
      Download a free app that allows you to see what midi info is coming out of your controller. "DJ Player" free works fine. Go into the midi mapping section of the program plug in your controller and note down the name that comes up ie. NumarkDJ2go. Case sensitive.

      Just by changing that, your controller should now be detected (obviously it will come up with the logo of the original file but ignore that).
      Once detected, feel free to change any control mappings.

      hope that helps

  • Sorry to ressurect an old thread, but does anyone know if this still works?

    I'm trying to change the Djay2 mapping for my WeGO3. I've followed the instructions and have created a custom map via Djay Pro, renamed the file to remove the 'edit',dropped this into Djay2's File Sharing in iTunes and restarted the app yet it doesn't seem to make any difference. I do not get any error messages but then the file doesn't seem to do anything in file sharing - should it disappear when uploaded?

    Any advice gratefully received.

    Okay, so it does work...for NEW maps. I created a custom map for my DJ2GO dropped it into file sharing and it works perfectly with Djay2. However, my custom map for my WeGO3 just won't work so I'm wondering if Djay2 doesn't over write existing maps for controllers that are natively supported.

    Is anyone out there listening, am I rambling to myself - it has been 3 mths!

  • Bro, I'm totally with you because I been meaning to to the same thing with my wego3. Wouldn't be surprised if no one is listening, though, because obvious suggestions and fixes don't ever get implemented and no one ever gets a reply on these forums.

  • Hi Guys,

    I have been using my own modified midimaps since DJay1 but I have always been jailbroken (now on IOS 8.1).

    If you jailbreak your Ipad you wont have any issues with doing whatever you want to do with your controller.

    If you want to stay a virgin. there are a few things to look at and try.

    1: I used to make my midi map on DJay for mac and then copy it over to the ipapad for my DJ2GO controller and this worked fine.
    I haven't tried this for a very long time and it is possible that for the wego3 (I have the wego 1), that they have changed the syntax for the mac version slightly and the Ipad version wont read it!!!
    So to test this out and be sure, you need a real ipad wego3 midi map file, make a single change to it (like inverting a speed slider etc), and then put that file in the itunes share and see if it works.
    if it doesn't work you can only use midi map files for unsupported controllers on ios.
    If it does work, then look inside the file you made with djay pro and selectively copy code over from one file to the other OR find the changes in the ios "original" version and change the djay pro file to reflect that.

    if you need a wego3 original midimap file I can email it to you to play with.
    djay@nightcorp.com

    At some point in time. DJ Hardware & Software houses will realize that there are a growing number of DJ's that want to use an Ipad (and a small controller such as the wego3) as professional tools, and stop leaving out the good bits or let us tweak the way WE want to use them, and this continues to make them look like toys!!!!

  • So initial attempts using a custom edited version of the actual djay2 map for the WeGO3 extracted from the app itself have proved fruitless. So it's looking like they're locked and cannot be overwritten via file sharing. I wonder if custom maps for unsupported controllers can be overwritten once initially loaded. May as well give it a try.

    In the meantime, looks like I'll have to down the jail breaking route, which will have to wait as I'm on iOS 8.2

    Frustrating.

  • Same, I want to modify the jog scratch sensitivity of my natively supported XW-J1. Mapping edits work fine in DJay Pro.1.2. So I copied the file over to iPad mini 2 into Djay 2 documents folder using iTunes but the actions aren't taking effect. My DDJ-SX is unsupported in DJay 2 so the mapping file can be copied into the same folder and works flawlessly there.

  • In summary, I can't use this program with my WeGO 3 on the iPad because I can't remap the controls to match the remapping I did with Djay Pro on my Mac. This makes zero sense. Don't reply, algoriddim, these persistent, logical requests that go unacknowledged provide entertainment to my sick brain.
