CONTROLS


The default mapping of the unit for VirtualDJ offers 7 different pages and those can be selected by using the first 7 vertical round buttons of the right side of the unit.

The very bottom round button is used as SHIFT to offer secondary actions (marked with white background in the following pictures)

Pages 1 to 4 have pre-selected VirtualDJ actions. Pages 5 to 7 are unassigned to allow you creating your own custom pages with the needed actions depending on your mixing style.
See more details in Advanced Setup section.

The 64 Pads trigger Samples 1 (top-left button) to 64 (bottom-right button) from the selected Sampler Bank.

Hold SHIFT and then press the same Pad to stop the sample (useful if the Unmute or Stutter Trigger mode is selected).
