Topic: Vinyl Mode Stops Playing Music
Whenever I click vinyl mode on my Pioneer DJ DDJ-SB2, it will stop the music. I have tried reinstalling the drivers and Virtual DJ itself, but it keeps having the same issue. I haven't had any problems with this controller or software until now. If anyone with any answers could help me out that would be great.

If you look at the mapping for the function, what does it say?

When I try to scratch in vinyl mode it says
JOG_OUT
JOG_VINYL
JOG_TOUCH_VINYL

Ok.
The JOG_TOUCH_VINYL normally triggers the touchwheel_touch, which is like putting your hand on the platter on a turntable.
That stops the music when you are in vinyl mode, which is fine
But when you then start moving your hand to scratch, does it start triggering other jog events, or does it stay on JOG_TOUCH_VINYL with the music stopped?

So the moment I click vinyl it says

VINYL

And that's the moment it stops playing music
I can then proceed to scratch but the music isn't playing anymore and it says

JOG_OUT
JOG_VINYL
JOG_TOUCH_VINYL

The moment I click out of vinyl mode the music starts back up.

If I understand you correctly I'm afraid that could be a hardware error on your controller
Because the JOG_TOUCH_VINYL command shouldn't get send to the software until you actually touch the jogwheel after you turn on vinyl
To VDJ it means, that your controller is telling it, that your hand is already holding the platter, and then it acts accordingly
I could be wrong, though, so lets see what other users have to say

Does this happen with both sides/decks ?
Can you also test with the factory default mapping , just in case you have incorrectly assigned a Key ?

You can also try to ..
- Use the default 2 Decks skin
- Assign a custom button as touchwheel_touch
- Whenever this button lights up, it means that you hold the platter.
- If it lights up and you dont hold the platter, then click this button to "release" it.
- If it does this regularly, then either you have a faulty unit, or some grounding issues. the touch operation on some systems depends on the circuit that your body/hand creates with the ground.
