Hello,
is any possibility to attach smart play button to mapping Denon Mc7000 ?

You could probably do it yourself, it's quite easy.

Here are 3 of my custom commands that I use on the Denon MC6000 MKII;

1. Shift + PLAY - to switch SmartPlay on/off
var '$shift' ? holding 500ms ? goto_first_beat : smart_play : play_pause

2. Shift + VINYL - pitch reset slowly, double press resets instantly
var '$shift' ? pitch_reset : vinyl_mode

3. Shift + CUE - pitch lock on/off
var ‘$shift’ ? pitch_lock : cue_stop


I also use DJDaD's Blocks skin that clearly shows when smart_play is active.

If I want to beatmix two tunes, then, I can press SHIFT PLAY to switch on smart_play.
Then press SHIFT CUE to pitch_lock.
During the transition I can then use SHIFT VINYL on the incoming tune to slowly move the pitch back on both tunes to correct pitch.
The pitch_lock and the pitch_reset automatically switches off when they get to the pitch zero position, but, you must remember you need to manually switch off smart_play by pressing SHIFT PLAY again if you don't want to use it on the next transition. This is where the visible indicator on the skin is important.

I have worked like this for years, it's great. Depending on the music I can slip into beatmixing for a few tunes then just as easily slip out of beatmixing.

I don't have the MC7000, but, I'm sure you should be able to find some alternative combination keys to do something similar.

Cheers
Les
