Novation - Launchpad MKII

Custom Setup


The default mapping of the unit for VirtualDJ 8, offers 4 pages with pre-assigned functions.
Pages 5 to 7 can be used to assign any VirtualDJ actions and create your own custom ones.

Each one of the PAD_X_Y keys is based on the following pattern.

var ‘$mk2page’ 0 ? VDJ action for page 1 : var ‘mk2page’ 1 ? VDJ action for page 2 : var ‘$mk2page’ 2 ? VDJ action for page 3 : var ‘$mk2page’ 3 ? VDJ action for page 4 : var ‘$mk2page’ 4 ? VDJ action for page 5 : var ‘$mk2page’ 5 ? VDJ action for page 6 : VDJ action for page 7

The first 4 VDJ actions (for pages 1 to 4) are already assigned. The actions for pages 5 to 7 are pre-assigned as nothing.

How to:
In the following example, we need PAD_8_1 (bottom row – 1st Pad from the left) to be assigned to toggle Slip mode for the Left deck when Page Nr.5 is selected and its LED to light up green when Slip mode is enabled.
For the PAD:
  • Goto Settings ->CONTROLLERS tab of VirtualDJ and select the Novation Launchpad MKII from the Devices list (top-left side of the window)

  • Locate the Key PAD_8_1 from the Keys list (left side) and select it.

  • From the action box, replace nothing with deck left slip_mode in the part that holds the action for Page 4 (variable value 3)

So the action …
... var ‘$mk2page’ 4 ? nothing : var ‘$mk2page’ 5 ? ….

will become…
... var ‘$mk2page’ 4 ? deck left slip_mode : var ‘$mk2page’ 5 ? ….


For the LED:
  • Locate the Key RGB_PAD_8_1 from the Keys list (left side) and select it. This key will determine how the LED of the Pad will behave,

  • From the action box, replace nothing with deck left slip_mode ? constant ‘green’ : off

So the action …
... var ‘$mk2page’ 4 ? nothing : var ‘$mk2page’ 5 ? ….

will become…
... var ‘$mk2page’ 4 ? deck left slip_mode ? constant ‘green’ : off : var ‘$mk2page’ 5 ? ….
