Topic: Help Keyboard "Triggers" For Sirens & Horns?
I would like to know how I can set up a keyboard shortcut for a siren or a horn. I currently use the siren on the sample area of VDJ however would like to add different horm/siren and have it trigger like a "cue point" from keyboard. How do i do that?

goto config > mappers > Keyboard

then if you look down the list af the "F" keys. you can see that the "F" keys are mapped to play samples from various banks.

all you have to do is load your horns sirens etc into the corresponding sample bank and away you go.

so F1 will be sample 1, F2 will be sample 2 etc.

hope this helps

oh and if you dont know how to load your samples,

goto the "samples" tab. look just below the box that says "play" on the right hand side, there is a little circle button.

this is a load button.

press it and then brows your computer for the sample you want and hit OK.

this will load the sample into the bank you selected and allow you to play it via, either, mouse click or corresponding "F" key.

let me know how you get on. and hope this info serves you well.

Are there keys on my key board that correspond with Virtual DJ? For example if I were to hit the "enter" button on my keyboard or something, then would it trigger "play" on Virtual DJ?

Another good option is a sampler stutter function:

sampler # play_stutter

you can change the number to the sampler slot you want to target, or omit it if you want to target the selected sampler "that's the one shown on the skin. eg.

sampler 7 play_stutter
sampler play_stutter

For this you needed to install VDJ with the samples. During the installation you are asked how you want to install. Select Complete and the samples will be installed as well.
Then inside VDJ you need to open the sampler and browse the sampler banks.

I will like to know how can I get my sampler on the F Button's to play instead of the other option's eg F2 brightness increase instead of the sampler

The sampler is mapped to the F leys by default.

There will be a setting in your actual computer that determines the priority of the F keys for settings vs functions
