Software Controls



DECK ASSIGN


The RP-8000 is offering 4 individual MIDI channels and those are pre-defined to control 4 separate VirtualDJ decks. Each RP-8000 unit can be assigned to a MIDI channel/deck as following:
  • Hold down the TRAX (9) encoder for approximately 3 seconds.
  • The LCD Display will then indicate the selected MIDI channel
  • Turn the encoder to select a MIDI Channel (1 to 4) or use Pads 1 to 4

BROWSER NAVIGATION


  1. TRAX ENC/PUSH. Use the encoder to scroll through the tracks of the Songs List.
    Push the encoder to load the selected track from the Songs List to the assigned deck.
    Push the encoder and then turn the encoder slightly to set focus to the folders list. You can then release the TRAX button and use the encoder to scroll through folders.
    Push the encoder again to set the focus back to the Songs List.

PADS


  1. PAD MODE SEL. Use these buttons to set the PADS (11) to one of the available Pad modes

  2. PADS. The 8 Pads offer different functionality, depending on the selected Pad mode as explained below


HotCues mode


Press the CUE mode button to set the PADs to HotCue mode (led will turn on blue)
The Hotcues Pad page will be automatically displayed on the PADS section of the default VirtualDJ GUI


Each one of the 8 pads assigns a Hot Cue Point (1 to 8) or returns 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 up.

Hold the CUE button down and then press any of the pads to delete its assigned Hot Cue Point.


Loop mode


Press the LOOP mode button to set the PADs to Loop mode (led will turn on green).
The Loop Pad page will be automatically displayed on the PADS section of the default VirtualDJ GUI


Each one of the 8 pads triggers a loop of a different size in beats (as per the image) from 1/8 to 16 beats.

While a Loop is enabled, hold down the LOOP mode button and then use the TRAX encoder (9) to move the loop forward or backwards by half the size of the triggered loop.


Loop Rolls
While the Loop mode is selected, press the LOOP mode button again to set Pads to Loop Roll mode
(Led will blink).
The Loop Pad page will be automatically displayed on the PADS section of the default VirtualDJ GUI


In Loop Roll mode, each one of the 8 Pads triggers a momentary (while pressed) Loop Roll of a different size in beats as per the image (from 1/32 to 4 beats).
When the pad is released, the track will return to the position it would have been if the Loop Roll was never triggered.


Sampler mode


Press the SAMPLE mode button to set the PADs to Sampler mode (led will turn on red)
A special RP-SAMPLER page will be automatically displayed on the PADS section of the default VirtualDJ GUI


Each one of the 6 upper pads triggers a sample (1 to 6) from the selected Sampler Bank of VirtualDJ.

The leds of the Pads will be turned on if the slot is loaded (available) and will blink while playing.

Hold the SAMPLE button down and then press any of the 6 upper pads to stop the playing sample (useful when the unmute or stutter mode is selected)

Hold the SAMPLE button down and then use the TRAX encoder (9) to adjust the Master Volume of the Sampler.

Use the 2 lower Pads to select the previous and next Sampler Bank.

Hold the SAMPLE mode button down and then use the 2 lower Pads to select a different trigger mode for the selected Sample Bank (On/Off, Hold, Stutter and Unmute).


Slicer mode


Press the SLICER mode button to set the PADs to Slicer mode.
The Slicer page will be automatically displayed on the PADS section of the default VirtualDJ GUI


The 8 pads represent 8 sequential beats—"Slices"—in the Beat Grid. The playing Slice is represented by the currently lit pad. The light will "move through the pads" as it progresses through each 8-Slice phrase. Press a pad to repeat that Slice (hold it down if you want to keep looping it).
Once the Pad is released the track will continue to play from the position it would have been if the pad was never pressed.

While in Slicer mode, press the SLICER mode button again to set the PADs to Slicer Hold mode.(Led will blink)

In this mode the pads offer the same functionality as in the Slicer mode, but in this case, the Slice is memorized on first press as the track continues to play. (HOLD mode). The unlit Pad will indicate the currently playing Slice.

Hold the SLICER mode button down and then use Pads 1 and 2 to increase/decrease the length of the applied loop on the slice.
Hold the SLICER mode button down and then use Pads 7 and 8 to increase/decrease the step (size) of the slice.


CUE-LOOP & CUE-ROLL Dual modes


Press both the CUE and LOOP mode buttons to set the PADs to Hotcue-Loop dual mode (both leds will turn on)

A special RP-HC+LOOP page will be automatically displayed on the PADS section of the default VirtualDJ GUI


In this mode the 4 upper Pads trigger HotCues 1 to 4 or 5-8 depending on the value of the 1st Parameter of the RP-HC+LOOP page (operation available from the GUI only)
Hold the CUE button down and then use the 4 upper Pads to delete their assigned HotCues.

The 4 lower Pads trigger Loops 1/2 beats to 128 beat in size depending on the selected Loops page (via the 2nd Parameter of the RP-HC+LOOP page - operation available from the GUI only)

While a Loop is triggered, hold the LOOP mode button down and then use the TRAX encoder (9) to move the loop forward or backwards by half the size of the triggered loop

*If no Pad is pressed while the mode buttons are pressed, the CUE or SAMPLER single mode will be selected once the mode button is released.

While the Hotcue-Loop mode is selected, press the LOOP mode button to set the PADs to Hotcue-Roll dual mode (led of the LOOP button will blink)
A special RP-HC+LOOP page will be automatically displayed on the PADS section of the default VirtualDJ GUI

In this mode, the 4 low Pads trigger Loop Rolls from 1/8 to 1 beat. The upper pads behave the same as in the Hotcue+Loop mode



CUE-SAMPLER Dual mode


Press both the CUE and SAMPLER mode buttons to set the PADs to HotCue-Sampler dual mode (both leds will turn on)

A special RP-HC+SAM page will be automatically displayed on the PADS section of the default VirtualDJ GUI


In this mode the 4 upper Pads trigger HotCues 1 to 4 or 5-8 depending on the value of the 1st Parameter of the RP-HC+SAM page (operation available from the GUI only)
Hold the CUE button down and then use the 4 upper Pads to delete their assigned HotCues.

The 4 lower Pads trigger Samples 1 to 4 of the selected Sampler Bank.

Hold* the SAMPLER mode button down and then press any of the 4 lower pads to stop the playing sample (useful when the unmute or stutter mode is selected)

Hold* the SAMPLE button down and then use the TRAX encoder (9) to adjust the Master Volume of the Sampler.

*If no Pad is pressed while the mode buttons are pressed, the CUE or SAMPLER single mode will be selected once the mode button is released.


LOOP-SAMPLER & ROLL-SAMPLER Dual modes


Press both the LOOP and SAMPLER mode buttons to set the PADs to Loop-Sampler dual mode (both leds will turn on)
A special RP-LOOP+SAM page will be automatically displayed on the PADS section of the default VirtualDJ GUI


In this mode the 4 upper Pads trigger Loops 1/2 beats to 128 beat in size depending on the selected Loops page (via the 1st Parameter of the RP-LOOP+SAM page - operation available from the GUI only)

While a Loop is triggered, hold the LOOP mode button down and then use the TRAX encoder (9) to move the loop forward or backwards by half the size of the triggered loop

The 4 lower Pads trigger Samples 1 to 4 of the selected Sampler Bank.

Hold* the SAMPLER mode button down and then press any of the 4 lower pads to stop the playing sample (useful when the unmute or stutter mode is selected)

Hold* the SAMPLE button down and then use the TRAX encoder (9) to adjust the Master Volume of the Sampler.

*If no Pad is pressed while the mode buttons are pressed, the CUE or SAMPLER single mode will be selected once the mode button is released.

While the Loop-Sampler mode is sleected (both leds are solid), press the LOOP button again to set the Pads to Roll-Sampler mode (the led of the LOOP button will blink)
A special RP-ROLL+SAM page will be automatically displayed on the PADS section of the default VirtualDJ GUI


In this mode, the 4 upper Pads trigger a momentary Loop Roll from 1/8 to 1 beat.

the 4 lower Pads trigger Samples 1 to 4 of the selected Sampler Bank




Note: The Dual modes can be disabled-enabled by following this procedure:
  • Power off the unit.
  • While holding both the SAMPLER mode button and the TRAX encoder (9) down, power on the unit.
  • Use PAD Nr.2 to enable/disable the Dual mode (On when enabled - Off when disabled).
  • Push the TRAX encoder to save setting
