MIDI Commands for TOOLS view

I’d like to suggest adding MIDI commands to be able to open/close the screen elements of the TOOLS view. This would make the djay Pro interface adaptive/responsive and tightly connect the experience of the hardware with the software.

For example, if I press the Hot Cue button, the Hot Cues should show in the Tools view.

Here’s a Before and After example:
Normal Deck View (BEFORE)

(AFTER) Pressing Hot Cue button

The MIDI commands might look something like this:

  • Deck 1 | Toggle Tools
    – (current command is under General and toggles ALL Decks)
  • Deck 1 | Tools - Open Cue Points
  • Deck 1 | Tools - Open Saved Loops
  • Deck 1 | Tools - Open Pitch Cues
  • Deck 1 | Tools - Open Slices
  • Deck 1 | Tools - Open Manual FX
  • Deck 1 | Tools - Open Instant FX
  • Deck 1 | Tools - Open Pad FX


  • I’m specifically asking for the TOOLS view, because it works in both macOS and iOS. More importantly TOOLS is the main iOS interface.
  • I think this would address the complaint of Jamie at Crossfader when he reviewed the Reloop Buddy. He mentioned that the experience between hardware/software was disconnected because the software did not respond to the hardware selections.
  • Rekordbox does this very nicely!
  • It’s also in-line with the idea that djay Pro is user-friendly for the average user.

Other VIEW OPTIONS under TOOLS view:

CUE options

LOOP options

FX options
