Thanks to all of you for posting feedback here; you’ve got a great community!
And big thanks to Slak_Jaw for all he does and for sharing the mapping.
I just dove in the other night with a bit of internet research and yeah, it’s incredibly intuitive and easy. I quickly mapped an old controller to the Looper and Sample bank.
Reloop is doing a great job, as is Algoriddim to ensure the software maps to as many controllers as possible. Third party controllers are great but will they ever be able to fully exploit the potential of this software? :
-the labelling of the functionality is not one to one or proprietary?
-the software is so new and so deep?
-the software is so feature rich, it might not be possible for one hardware controller to map it all out? In which case, I would suggest there be some ‘modular’ units released ‘per functionality’ as add ons?
What I would love to see is one to one buttons and knobs with clear labelling for:
a) The Neural Mix stems crossfader functionality, along with fx on the individual stems.
b) Full hands on control of the looper and sample packs.
In other words, the controller should mirror the design of the Djay Pro in a fairly precise way, to eliminate guessing.
Yes, there’s muscle memory. I just want something that’s the Algoriddim equivalent to the FLX10!
Perhaps I’m just clinging to a dying DJ paradigm, and the iPad with its touch screen control is the way forward (would it be possible to use one in conjunction with a laptop?).
I realize that Algoriddim is a relatively small company. But since it’s fully developed for the laptop, and the majority of DJs use that (for now) with a controller, there’s a good use case for making this happen. Especially if the software takes off the way I think it might!
That brings me to other requests (one of which may be divisive to long time users):
- Is there any chance of developing an Asymmetrical design “option” for the software? Or that ship has sailed?
- Is adding FX to the Looper and Sample Pack section in the pipeline?
- I am missing the little yellow crossfade icon on the Neural Stems crossfader? Any idea why and how I can activate it?
Thanks for helping me get to grips with this incredibly inspiring tool that is literally brand new to me,
