Re-mapping controls in djay android

Anybody knows if it’s possible to re-map controls in djay for Android?
I own a djcontrolmix by Hercules and i would like for example to assing buttons for making loops with “in” and “out”


Hey @cronico ,

Thank you for posting this question here in the Community.

I’ll be happy to provide some clarification on the topic!

Although we offer midi mapping options with our app on iOS, MacOS, and Windows, currently, we are not supporting a midi learning mode for the Android app.

However, I already passed the request along to our development team for future consideration.

Our team is continuously improving the app, so your feedback is very helpful in ensuring future developments are aligned with the wishes of the djay community.

Hope you will find this information useful. Cheers!

I am in the exact same situation. I just purchased a Hercules DJControl Mix and even bought the Android Djay Pro just to find out that the Bluetooth midi mapping for Android is not available.

I am very happy with the features of the Djay app, but it would be extremely useful to be able to remap the controller by implementing the Midi Learn functionality available in the iOS version.

For example, the longest executable loopsize is 1 beat, which is very limiting. Also the app has many great FX, but those mapped to the FX pad don’t offer much variety.

I feel it is quite misleading to advertise that the controller is compatible with both iOS and Android Djay Pro when these essential features are not available for both.

Thank you for reading and possibly considering this improvement.

Yes, i would pay for that. Please Algoriddim, consider including this
feature al least in the Pro version.

Yeah, i bought the pro version thinking i could do this, but you can’t even change the waveforms orientation, The ‘PRO’ on android is definitely not worth the money

What’s the joke? I don’t understand :thinking:

“Our team is continuously improving the app, so your feedback is very helpful in ensuring future developments”

This is an acceptable comment if this was a thread regarding djay on IOS but this is thread is focused on the android version.

I have contacted the Algoriddim team regarding various bugs on the android version and I don’t even receive a response back.

The “set grid start” issue has been around for a long time now but nothing ever seems to get done.

The joke is this app on android

I do quite like the android app. It’s perfectly acceptable and fun to djay on.

I have always djayed on technics 1210s and a vestax pmc-05 Pro III prior to using Djay. Obviously I love this setup but it does require manual beat matching, manually setting levels/gains, manually searching by hand through stacks of vinyl for that one tune and trying to get your vinyl in and out of those little paper sleeves :laughing:.

To add effects, I had to add a Korg Kaoss pad to my setup and I still didn’t have any way to loop parts of a track. I’m sure there are ways, i.e Novation Dicer, I think, not totally sure as never used it myself. Just means buying and setting up more equipment.

All this is obviously fine when you create a nice little studio at home but transporting turntables, mixer, vinyl (weighs an absolute tonne), kaoss pad, novation dicer, speakers, amp and lighting to a gig is hardwork to say the least.

I can use a tablet, midi controller and the djay app to perform a quite convincing set. Obviously I still have to take an amp, speakers and lighting if the venue doesn’t have these things but it’s still a much easier setup to transport.

I’ve had to create my own workarounds in order to use Djay in any kind of capacity. I understand that Algoriddim have had issues with audio routing on the android platform when using a midi controller but I have been able to find a solution to this. I obviously contacted Algoriddim for support but they just stopped responding after a short period of time and left me to figure it out for myself.

I’m fairly happy that i’ve conquered the biggest problem myself but there are still some small bugs within the app that need addressing. I feel like they would be fairly simple for the Algoriddim team to fix but they don’t even acknowledge my request.

Yes, I understand that they spend most of their focus on the IOS version, followed secondly by the windows version. People that use the app on these platforms get… well, i was going to say much better support, but i’m going to say support seeing as I don’t seem to get any, despite buying products based on information provided by Algoriddim, both on their website and google play page.

I aso understand that they get much better features in the way of neural mix but i’m not sure if I would use it that much anyway. I have tried it on the windows version and although it is very good, it’s not quite perfect when it comes to isolating vocals, drums etc. Don’t get me wrong, it is impressive and quite a lot of fun but I also see it as a bit of a gimmick and can’t really see myself using it much in a live set. If I was looking to totally remix tracks, I would probably use dedicated production software.

The android version is fairly lacking but still useable, it just would be nice if the Algoriddim team would give us a look in every once in a while and iron out a few bits and bobs.

Yeah but having a console and not being able to remap the controls, is not that much fun

All the buttons, knobs, faders etc are already assigned to the correct role.

I don’t agree that @SnAkEs1210
For example i find more useful the “in” and “out” loop generators than the 4 loops preseted. They don’t always match easily when you return to the song. In addition to this, it’d be interesting being able to choose your preferred effects instead the filter for example, wich you already have a knob for
