MULTI-BUTTONS


The 4 HOTCUES/SAMPLES multi-buttons (33) offer different functionality depending on the selected mode.



There are 4 different modes selected by the CUES and SAM mode buttons (32)

  • HotCues mode (default):
    This mode is selected by default when VirtualDJ launches. In case a different mode is selected, press the CUES button to set the multi-buttons to HotCues mode (LED will light up red).

    In this mode, the 4 multi-buttons assign a Hot Cue Point (1 to 4) or return the track to that Hot Cue Point. When a Hot Cue Button is unlit, you can assign a Hot Cue Point by pressing it at the desired point in your track. Once it is assigned, the Hot Cue Button will light. To return to that Hot Cue Point, simply press it.
    Press and hold SHIFT and then press a Hot Cue Button to delete its assigned Hot Cue Point.

  • Loop Rolls mode:
    Hold SHIFT and then press the CUES button to set the multi-buttons to Loop Rolls mode (LED will light up purple).

    In this mode, the 4 multi-buttons trigger a Loop Roll of a different size in beats (1/8, 1/4, 1/2 and 1 beat)

  • Sampler 1-4 mode:
    Press the SAM button to set the multi-buttons to Sampler 1-4 mode (LED will light up blue).

    In this mode, the 4 multi-buttons trigger a Sample (1-4) of the selected Sampler Bank.
    Hold SHIFT down and then use the same multi-buttons to stop the triggered sample (useful if the Stutter or Unmute trigger pad mode is selected)

    If the Sampler 1-4 mode is selected, hold this button down and then use the 4 multi-buttons to select Sampler Bank 1 to 4. More Sampler Banks can be selected via the Navigation System (D).

  • Sampler 5-8 mode:
    Hold SHIFT and then press the SAM button to set the multi-buttons to Sampler 5-8 mode (LED will light up purple).

    In this mode, the 4 multi-buttons trigger a Sample (5-8) of the selected Sampler Bank.
    Hold SHIFT down and then use the same multi-buttons to stop the triggered sample (useful if the Stutter or Unmute trigger pad mode is selected)

    If the Sampler 5-8 mode is selected, hold this button down and then use the 4 multi-buttons to select Sampler Bank 1 to 4. More Sampler Banks can be selected via the Navigation System (D).


    Note: In both Sampler modes, if the selected Sampler Bank has more than 8 samples, the left multi-buttons will trigger Samples 1-8 and the right side will trigger Samples 9-16. If the selected Sampler Bank has less than 9 samples, both sides of the VMS5 will control the same samples 1-8.

  1. SMART LOOP. Use this knob to enable/disable Smart (Auto) Loop mode. If this mode is enabled (default mode), a seamless loop will be triggered when a Manual Loop is applied (the size of the Manual Loop will be auto-adjusted).
