Support for Roland DJ controllers?

Are there plans support the DJ controllers from Roland, specifically the Roland DJ 808, DJ 505 or DJ 202. The 202 and 505 seem like they would be great for DJay Pro. Plus I love the idea of being able to have a midi clock out and a drum machine to play with.

Hi DJAY! Thanks for a great app!

I have played around with the current version of DJAY Pro for Windows. I am using W10 latest version etc on a Microsoft Surface Book 2. I am also using a Roland DJ 202 which I managed to fully get MAPPED with all functions in DJAY PRO.

The only issues I have in W10 is around the built in sound card in DJ 202. It has one input for Mic and 4 outputs for sound. (1 stereo master + the head phone for cueing) - This board is ASIO based.

Both the master and the cue channel shows up in DJAY Pro - but it seems to be impossible to get it work in the right way. You can only choose one of the stereo channels. Someone was mentioning that ASIO Bridge could solve the problem - but I have not tested it.

Another problem in the Windows version of DJAY PRO is the Microphone support - there is no way in hell to get it to work. (And there is no mapped controllers for this...in the app)

Finally - long story - I tried the DJAY PRO version for MAC / OSX. Now the whole thing shows up and works great with my DJ 202. (I need to redo all mapping...)

I can see all 4 channels + the Mic and can get it to work properly.

Roland DJ 202 is a great entry + mid level board - and you should add this to your supported list.

However - the sound card implementation in DJAY PRO Windows 10 version is not fun at all! You should fix this immediatly so it is running just as smooth as in your MAC version of DJAY PRO.

This implementation has nothing to do with my sound card found in DJ 202 or if my board is on your supported list of devices. I also tried with Behringer U-Phoria UMC 404, Zoom U24 - e.g. 4 channel cards with native ASIO support - and I can just say - your sound card implementation in W10 sucks!

Best Regards

Anders

Would love it if you share your progress so far if you have a mapping available. Great job!
