Description:

This mapping adds a lot of NEW features to the Denon MC3000 DJ Controller:

Transport enhancements:
- Beat jump feature: Press [<<] or [>>] to jump 16 beats (4 bars), song keeps in sync, press [SHIFT] with [<<] or [>>] to pitchbend
- Beat jump during loops: Using [<<] or [>>] in loop mode jumps 16 beats (4 bars), also moves the loop
- Speed seeking with [Jog wheel]: Hold [<<] or [>>] while turning the jog wheel, jumps fast to any position in the song
- Automix mode: [>>] mixes into the next track during Automix mode

Improved usability:
- Automatic Prelisten next song (headphones): [BROWSE] to maximize Browser .. prelisten song .. scroll with jogwheel .. use [<<,>>] to seek
- Indicates end of song: [LED Play] & [LED Cue] start blinking if remaining song length less then 30 sec, fast blinking if less then 15 sec
- Blinking Cue LED: [CUE] LED flashes in cue store mode (,Pioneer style')

New CUE type ,Load-Marker':
- Autostart CUE: Use [CUE-4] Button as a ,Load-Maker' (marked with 'LOAD' in wave). Song jumps automatically to this position after [LOAD]
- Load-Marker is also write protected (to avoid override using accidental [CUE]). To readjust cue, delete first with [SHIFT] + [CUE-4] first
- Easier to use than the original CUE-1 in VDJ (with autocue in options) - benefit now: free CUE-1, LOAD label in waveform, write protected

Loop enhancements:
- Move loop position smoothly: Press [SHIFT] together with [-] or [+] Button (near [Auto Loop]) to move the loop smoothly back or forth
- Change loop length in +/- 10ms steps: Press [VINYL] + [-/+], not for playing live (song out of sync), but perfect to record loops as own samples

Control additional VDJ commands via controller:
- Harmonic Mixing: Transpose song in halftone steps. Press [<<] or [>>] together with [VINYL] to change key, press all 3 buttons to reset
- Change pitch range via controller: Hold [VINYL] and toggle [KEYLOCK] to change pitch range (6,8,12,50,100%)
- Toggle VDJ switches via controller: [SHIFT + PLAY] = slip on/off, [SHIFT + CUE] = smart_cue on/off, [SHIFT + LOOP_OUT] = smart_loop on/off

Sampler enhancements:
- Dedicated controls for 8 (!) samples: press [SAMP] first to switch mode, then left deck is used for sample 1-4 and NEW: right deck for 5-8
- Usage of 8 controls: Button [SAMP.x] = play/stop sample 1-8 (blinking LED in playmode), [SHIFT] Button = Shutter sample, Knob = volume 1-8
- Why ?: In factory default settings you can control only 4 samples, left and right deck mirror the same, now deck right controls 5-8
- Control [SEL]: Also possible to play all samples without using dedicated buttons, use [SEL] only to control any samples at the same time
- Usage of [SEL]: [SHIFT] + [SEL] to select sample, hold [SAMP] + [SEL] for volume, [SAMP] + press [SEL] to play/stop (work now in all windows)
- Why ?: In [SEL] factory default settings you can’t control sample volume before playing, also can’t play more than 1 sample at same time

Variable Effects enhancements:
- Multi effect mode: Combine any of your VDJ effects together, means: add any new effect without disabling the earlier effect
- Select additional effect with [SHIFT] + [EFX.1] knob, press [EFX.1] button to switch on/off, flashing [EFX.1] button indicates multi effect mode
- Effect parameter 1-4: Much easier to use now, [EFX.1-4] knobs control effect par. 1-4, use [SHIFT] + [EFX.1] to select effect (,Traktor style')

Embedded [EFX.1/2] effects*:
- 4 additional effects on [EFX.1] and [EFX.2] buttons, all effects are easy to use due predefined effect parameter and dedicated buttons
- ‘Beatgrid’ effect: Effect is included in VDJ installation, no plug-in download necessary. Hold [EFX.1] button to activate effect.
- 'FlippinDouble' effect: Effect is included in VDJ installation, no plug-in download necessary. Hold [EFX.1] + [SHIFT] to activate effect
- ‘RampDelay' effect: Press [EFX.2] to activate effect
- 'NoiseBell’ effect: Press [EFX.2] + [SHIFT] to activate effect. Jog wheel supports frequency (2nd effect parameter) !
- Practice ,Rising White Noise' effect (is useful to prepare a fade into next song). Test it: press [EFX.2] and turn the jog wheel (!) slowly clockwise
- Practice ,Digital Ramp Delay' effect (even works if song stops). Test it: turn [EFX.1] knob to min .. press [EFX.2] .. increase [EFX.1] knob slowly

Embedded Loop Roll effect*:
- Mix a song with it's own Loop, play both at same time, use [EFX.1] knob to define mix level (different to embedded LoopRoll Effect in VDJ 7.4)
- LoopRoll effect: press [SHIFT] + [AUTOLOOP] to store a 8 beats loop in background, use [EFX.1] knob to mix levels of original song and Loop

Expressive Filter knob*:
- Enhanced filter: Use [filter] knob for a dedicated [Filters_v2_TexZK] effect - similar to default VDJ filter but more expressive


*Important: To use embedded effect and filter functionalities, you have to download and install 4 plug-ins first (thanks to TexZK and Deun-Deun!):
- [Filters_v2_TexZK] -> http://www.virtualdj.com/addons/4294/Filters.html
- [NoiseBell] -> http://www.virtualdj.com/addons/12202/NoiseBell.html
- [LoopRoll] -> http://www.virtualdj.com/addons/12952/LoopRoll.html
- [RampDelay] -> http://www.virtualdj.com/addons/14161/Ramp_Delay.html


Feedback welcome,
enjoy it !
