In this mode, the 4 numbered Pads will trigger a Sample (1-4) from the selected Sampler Bank of VirtualDJ.

If the selected Bank has more than 4 Samples, the left side of the Party Mix will trigger samples 1 to 4 and the right side will trigger samples 5 to 8. Samples further to slot 8 can be triggered from the Sampler view of Sideview, either by selecting a different Sampler Layout view or the List view.
