Forum: VirtualDJ Plugins
Topic: The Advanced Freestyler integration thread - Page: 3
This is only an issue with certain controllers and when I am going out with a single laptop setup.
Example setup and the problems.
AKAI mini as MIDI controller to Freestyler - all mapped through freestyler and works perfectly - except -
when I start virtual DJ - it tries to take over the AKAI mini and things stop working plus I get subscript errors and so on.
Also, Virtual DJ often resets my complete setup when I plug in an MCX8000.
I dont really have a solution so any help or pointers would be great - thanks

Select your Akai and from the drop down menu on the right select IGNORE
Start Freestyler and configure it's MIDI ports to use your AKAI
VirtualDJ should NOT try to take over Akai now, since it's set to ignore it
PS: Generally speaking Freestyler has an issue when it comes to MIDI ports:
Instead of remembering the "name" of the port it should use and seeking for it, it remembers the port's index.
This means that if the amount of connected MIDI devices is different when you start Freestyler in comparison with what it have saved in it's configuration, you need to reconfigure MIDI ports again.
Same rule applies if the "order" of MIDI ports changes.
The order of MIDI ports depends on the sequence you connect your controllers on the USB ports.
Finally, for MCX8000 if it's an issue related to Freestyler MIDI ports e.t.c. please post more details here as you don't really describe your issue.
If it's a general issue then use the support forums and open a new thread

var_equal '$FS_RCV_BLACKOUT_GROUP_01' 0 ? off & set '$FS_SND_BLACKOUT_GROUP_01' 1 while_pressed : on & set '$FS_SND_BLACKOUT_GROUP_01' 1 while_pressed
As, I stated I just started to mess around with MIDI and Freestyler and I would like to learn how to map things to my liking. I'm not too sure what to do with the whole note-on, note-off, note, channel, etc... in Freestyler to make something like this work. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
