Hello, any idea maybe on a way to map djay instant FX and Neural stems to controller pads (Like Djuced or Serato)? Thank you

Hi @JustineB, as I shared in your other thread, both Instant FX and Neural Mix Mute/Solo are easily MIDI Mappable to spare performance pads. Just scroll through the available commands within the MIDI Learn tool for Deck 1 and Deck 2. For more information on MIDI Mapping in djay, please refer to the linked FAQ article.

Thanks. That’s ok, but how to create an under menu by clicking shift+main loop for example to call a secondary pads map for instant FX, without removing main loop pads setting? Tricky!

You’re welcome. That really depends on your DJ controller hardware. If SHIFT+MAIN LOOP on your DJ controller does not engage a secondary Performance Pad Mode on your controller with it’s own unique MIDI assignments for each pad, then this cannot be manually MIDI Mapped in djay. This is simply a hardware limitation.

Thanks. 3 empty pads in main loop zone, enough to get 3 Neural Instant FX, nice :slight_smile:

By chance is there also a clever way to get the Djay 4 decks feature with a 2 channels controller with a midi trick? :blush:

Shift and pitch bend perhaps?

Not really. Certainly, you could MIDI map SHIFT+ many of the controls for Deck 3 and 4, but with only 2 channels on the controller things won’t work out very well. In general, I wouldn’t recommend this.


Thanks. Just to load a track for scratch in fact, maybe a long sample through sampler pad would be a better idea ?

That’s ok I’ve just found a way to map non essential knobs to do it without shift. Thank you
