NOTES


* The 4 TIME DIV buttons 1/4 (SHIFT), 1/8, 1/16, 1/32 and the 4 FADERS, offer the same functionality regardless the selected CTRL BANK (A,B,C). However, these keys offer different MIDI value and are named differently in the default mapping, so those can be assigned with different actions depending on the selected CTRL BANK.

** The PROGRAM select knob and the PAD BANK and CTRL BANK buttons are hardware controls, they do not send any MIDI message, so cannot be assigned to a VirtualDJ action.
