Numark Scratch MIDI Problems

Has anyone successfully mapped the Numark Scratch?
I have problems with the paddle trigger, they are recognized as faders. So I can not turn on the fx.
The Loop Encoder is recognized as a button.
When I try to change it under advanced configuration nothing happens.
Can someone help me?


Hey @AdT, thanks for reaching out. Are you able to switch the paddle trigger to a “Button” type?
There are three different rotary encoder types that, did you check all of them?
I recommend giving our FAQ entry about manually mapping a MIDI controller a read, it might answer some of your questions. Hope that helps!

Hello Lukas,
I tried this option but it seems a bit buggy on the ipad. if i change the type, the new options only appear after i close the editor and open it again. the button options are displayed and i can select them but they don’t work!

I hope that the midi editor will be expanded in the next updates.

Hey @AdT
i think about getting a numark scratch too since it would eradicate my chunky mixer and the external soundcard with all its cables. Does the mixer well with djay pro beside this midi issue or did you find a solution?

I also bought the Numark new because unfortunately I couldn’t use my old Z2. Z2 is not recognized as a midi controller in ios/djay
The Numark is recognized directly but must be completely mapped.
Unfortunately djay only has the “shift” midi option so far. If “modifiers” are possible everything should work.
It is possible to edit the xml file, but I still don’t understand it properly.

Update: I found a solution for the loop encoder. Use as „button“ with „loop half“ in one direction and „loop double“ in the other.
