Reloop - RMX90

ADVANCED SETUP


MIDI ASSIGN


All the elements (faders, knobs, buttons, rotaries) of the RMX90 are capable to send MIDI messages to the connected computer (if the MIDI setting is set to ON - See USB Channel Assign )

However, only a few of them (mainly the mixer channels section) are assigned to a VirtualDJ action and the "fake mixer" mode is enabled since the audio mixing is done by the RMX90 and not the internal mixer of VirtualDJ. This means that whatever adjustments are made on the internal mixer of VirtualDJ (e.g. moving a Volume fader from the VirtualDJ GUI) will not affect the audio routing or output.

The rest of the RMX90 elements are offered in the Key list (Controllers tab of VirtualDJ Settings), and can be assigned to any VirtualDJ action, but keep in mind that the Hardware operation of these elements will be still executed.
This means that if for example you wish to assign an element from the Mic section to a VirtualDJ action, the repsective Microphone operation will be executed by the RMX90 if a Microphone is connected to a MIC input.
You could also assign one of the FX BEATS unit rotaries to scroll through the VirtualDJ Browser, but if the FX ON is enabled, you could end with an unwanted Effect behavior.

Mixer Order


By default Reloop RMX90 is pre-configured to control VirtualDJ decks with channel order 3-1-2-4. This means that the middle CH2(TWO) and CH3(THREE) are assigned* to control main decks 1 and 2 and the side Channels CH1(ONE) and CH4(FOUR) are assigned* to control VirtualDJ decks 3 and 4.

*The SOURCE selectors need to be on USB position

How to change the Mixer channel order?
  • Click on the small round button right above the Crossfader (Mixer Options) to get the Mixer Options menu. (available in the 4 Decks default GUI of VirtualDJ)

  • Choose one of the available mixer orders 1-2-3-4, 3-1-2-4 (default) or 1-3-4-2

  • If the sound card of the Reloop RMX90 is used in the Audio setup of VirtualDJ, confirm the change of the audio routing in the following window and VirtualDJ will automatically make the necessary changes to the audio configuration.
