Topic: TouchDAW Midi device recognized and active but no effect on software
I'm testing controller options to decide if I want to buy a full license.
I've installed TouchDAW on my android tablet, and connected it to my windows 10 computer through rtpMIDI successfully.
In VDJ 8 settings > controller, I'm able to see the MIDI input of TouchDaw, say 0-BUTTON42, and map it to an action for testing purpose, say "deck 1 play_pause".
I know this action works as I tested it as a custom button, but when assigned to my TouchDaw button, it doesn't trigger in the software.
Any help would be appreciated.

Are the buttons work as momentary (x7F while button is down and x00 when released) or toggle (first press sends x7F, second press sends x00 and so on) ?
You could use MIDIOX (Google it) to see what kind of MIDI notes you get)
Also keep in mind that you will need a license to use any custom device or Hardware. But you should be able to test for 10 mins on each restart.

>> what if you map it as .. loop 1 ? Does it work ?
I also tried "loop 1" and "loop". These commands both work as custom buttons, but give no result through the tablet & TouchDAW.

It looks like these are normal button that deactivate on release.

Yes, the two virtual buttons I've been trying to map come out as F# and G. They both send an "off" message on release.
