Definition file for a MIDI Controller in Version 8



The Definition File for a MIDI controller is a XML file installed in Documents/VirtualDJ/Devices/ folder and has the following form.
<device ...><audio ... />definition of all MIDI elements</device>

Example :
<device name="DDJSX" author="Atomix Productions" description="Pioneer DDJ-SX" version="800" type="MIDI" vid="0x08E4" pid="0x0171" decks="4" padColumns="4" padRows="2" padSides="2">
<audio description="Pioneer DDJ-SX" input="1" output="2" mixer="yes" mic="no" vid="0x08E4" pid="0x0171" asio="Pioneer DDJ_SX ASIO" />
<!-- Buttons-->*
<button note="0x34" name="PLAY_PAUSE" deck="1" channel="1" />
<!-- Sliders-->*
<slider ccmsb="0x08" cclsb="0x28" name="LEVEL" deck="1" channel="0"/>
..
</device>

* The <!-- --> are optional comments, not executable.

  • <device>
    The <device> line holds all the identifiers that will secure the unique and proper detection of a controller, and has the following parameters.

      • name - Provide a unique short name for the device, which will be used in the mapping file as well. The name will not be visible anywhere else. (E.g. name="DDJSX")
      • type - For a MIDI Controller this must be set as type="MIDI"
      • description - Provide a description. This will be visible in the Controllers tab of Config. (E.g. description="Pioneer DDJ-SX"). In v8 it is preferred to give this name in the definition instead of the mapping file because a single device can have multiple mappers.
      • version - VDJ version this definition was created for. E.g. version="800"
      • decks - Number of decks that can be controlled with this controller. E.g. decks="2" for a 2-sides controller, or decks="1" for a single-deck controller, or decks="4" for a 2-sides controller which offers additional layers for each deck per side.
      • singledeck - Set to "yes" if it is a single-deck controller (decks="1") with a switch button to toggle to a second deck. When 1 controller is connected it will switch between 1 and 2, but when 2 controllers are connected, they will switch between 1 and 3, and 2 and 4. Can be used for 2-deck controller that can control 4 decks as well.
      • padColumns padRows padSides - (Optional) Define the matrix that the controller provides to control the Sampler. If the controller has sampler pads, provide the number of horizontal pads in one sampler area, the number of vertical pads in one sampler area and the number of the sides. If the controller has a sampler area on each side, the padSides should be 2, if there is only one sampler area on the controller it should be 1. E.g. for the Pioneer DDJ-SX which offers a 4x2 Matrix per side, it should be .. padColumns="4" padRows="2" padSides="2"
      • motor - This should be set to Yes (motor="yes") for controllers that have a motorized platter.
        In case of 4-deck controller with 2 motors, make sure singledeck="yes"
      • platform="pc|mac" (Optional). Most of the time this shouldn't be needed, but if a controller has a different driver or firmware for mac or pc, use this to have the definition loaded only on the specified platform. In this case, use 2 definition files for the device, one with platform pc and one with platform mac.

    • Unique Identifiers
      • vid pid - Detect device by vid/pid. Whenever available, include this, preferred and safer detection for Windows 7 and later E.g. vid="0x06F8" pid="0xB109"
      • sysexid - Detect device by sysex id. E.g. sysexid= "F07E??060200014E0200090001000000F7"
      • drivername, drivernameout, macdrivername, macdrivernameout
        Detect device by the device's midi name. Optionally drivernameout and macdrivername can be provided in case they are different.

        If you don't provide any form of identification (vid/pid, sysexid etc) , then this definition file will be applied to all MIDI interfaces that are not matched by another definition. If you need to create a definition file for your own use, you can use this to quickly get your device working.

    • How to get the Unique Identifiers :
      VirtualDJ 8 provides an implemented tool to get all the information that your Audio, MIDI and HID devices offer. Open VirtualDJ 8, goto the Options tab of the Config and set the setting CreateMidiLog to Yes from the Advanced Options. Close VirtualDJ 8 and make sure your device is properly connected and its drivers are installed. Launch VirtualDJ 8 and then close right after. Open the generated Log Report.txt file you will find in /Documents/VirtualDJ folder to get all the reported data.

    • How to get the sysexid value :
      Download Miditrace from here. In this tool, "F0 7E 7F 06 01 F7" is the Identity Request SysEx query needed to get the Identity Request SysEx answer to use in "sysexid".
      The SysEx answer for an Identity Request should start with " F07E??0602 " (0xF0, 0x7E, <channel>, 0x06, 0x02), then the Manufacturer's ID (on 3 bytes, see some examples here), followed by the Device Family Code, the Device Family Member Code, the Software Revision Level, ... e.t.c. (the ?? means you will detect the device whatever the MIDI channel is)
      If the device doesn't answer to standard ID SysEx, but answers to some other proprietary SysEx, you can use it to detect the device. Specify sysexquery= and sysexanswer= in the header, with the required SysEx codes.


  • <audio>
    The <audio> line is optional. If the controller has a built-in sound card, then define its properties using this line, in order a special button in the Audio tab of Config to be offered with a pre-defined audio configuration.
      • description - Provide a name that will be shown in the "special" button in the Audio tab of Config. It is possible to use \n if the name would be too long to fit properly on one line.
      • image - (Optional) Name of the Image shown in the audio configuration for this controller. E.g. image="mycontroller.png". It will look for a .png file with this name in the /Devices folder. If not provided, it will look for a png file with the same filename as the definition file.
        Alternatively, the image can be base64 encoded and embedded in the xml by using image="embedded://base64encodedstring"
      • input Provide the number of (stereo) inputs available for this device.
      • output - Provide the number of (stereo) outputs available for this device
      • mic - [Yes/No] Define, if this device has a microphone input that should be configured (default is No)
      • linein - Define the number of line inputs that should be configured for this device. E.g. linein="2" will auto create linein1 and linein2 in the audio configuration of this unit.
      • timecode - Define the number of time code inputs that should be configured for this device
      • record - If the unit offers a dedicated Record Input, define the channels that will be used as a Record Loopback. E.g. record="11,12" will set Input channels 11 & 12 as Recording Input.
      • sampler - If the unit offers a dedicated Sampler Output, define the channels that will be used for Sampler Output. E.g. sampler="9,10" will use output channels 9 & 10 to output Sampler.
      • booth - If the unit offers a dedicated Booth Output, define the channels that will be used for Booth Output. E.g. booth="7,8" will use output channels 7 & 8 to output Booth.
      • mixer - [Yes/No/Internal] If set to yes, master and headphones output will be created. If set to no, deck 1, deck 2 outputs will be created. If set to internal, deck 1 and deck 2 outputs will be created and its used when the device mixes the channels instead of the computer (fake mixer)
      • asio - Name of the ASIO driver for this device. E.g. asio="Pioneer DDJ-SX ASIO"
      • coreAudio - Name of the mac core audio name of the device. Only required if the name is different from the midi name, and the device is not found without.
      • vid pid mid - vid/pid of this devices sound card (for wasapi when asio is not available and for detecting if the device is connected or not)
        vid/pid are required for any sound config
        optionally, some devices may also require mid (usually not)
      • vid2 pid2 mid2 - When the different output channels are shown as separate sound cards, sometimes they get a different pid and/or mid
      • identifier - Optional, for some devices, the pid/vid cannot be found in the device instance id. In this case, use a unique string inside the device instance id as identifier. The vid/pid can be copied from the midi part in this case. E.g. ideintifier=" #NUMARKV7AUDIOADAPTER#"
      • asioOnly - If a sound card doesn't show up as a usbAudio on windows, set this to "Yes", so that the vid/pid listed should be looked for in the USB MEDIA class, instead of usbAudio devices
      • controllerIdentifier - If no vid/pid's or other identifiers are available, this can be used to say that the audio device is available if the controller with name NAME is available (the name="" entry of the device description above)
      • outputChannels - Optional when using default order. Use this to re-order the Output channels. E.g. in case Channels 3,4 should be used first for master out, and Channels 1,2 for headphones have outputChannels="3,4,1,2" (default is 1,2,3,4).
      • inputChannels - Optional when using default order. Use this to re-order the Input channels. E.g. in case Channels 3,4 should be used first for Linein 1 or Timecode 1, and Channels 1,2 for Linein 2 or Timecode 2 have inputChannels="3,4,1,2" (default is 1,2,3,4).

      The <audio> definition can be used as a stand-alone definition file to offer a pre-defined audio configuration when the defined sound card is connected. The audio definition follows the above structure, with the difference that a name="" needs to be provided.
      Example:
      <audio name="TRAKTORAUDIO2" description="Traktor Audio 2" vid="0x17cc" pid="0x041d" identifier="#nita2_avs#" asio="Traktor Audio 2" mixer="no" output="2" >
      </audio>


  • MIDI elements
    Each button, slider, knob, LED, LCD, etc, will be defined by a child item of the <device> element.
    • All elements (excepts <init> and <exit>) can implement these properties:
      • name - the name of this element, as will be used in the mapper
      • deck - (optional) the deck on which this element apply, if the device controls two decks
      • channel - (optional) the MIDI channel (if you need to differentiate between different channels)

    • Buttons. A button is defined by a <button> element, with the additional properties:
      • note: the MIDI note
      • inverted: (optional) set to "true" if the device sends note-off when pressed and note-on when released
        example:
        <button note="0x11" name="PLAY" deck="1" channel="1" />

      If the button sends CC MIDI codes instead of note-on/note-off, you can use a <button> element with the following properties:
      • cc - the MIDI cc
      • value - the on value of the MIDI cc (optional)

      • inverted- (optional) set to "true" if the jog is inverted
      • zero - set the cc value that represents zero. For a jog that sends 0x01 for forward movement and 0x7F for rewind, set this to "0" (default). For a jog that sends 0x41 for forward movement and 0x3F for rewind, set this to "0x40"
      • full - set to the number of steps sent while performing a full rotation (by default 128)
        example:
        <jog cc="0x24" zero="0x40" full="512" name="JOG" deck="1" />

      If the jog wheel sends messages with its absolute position, you can define it with a <fulljog> element, with the following properties:

        <jog cc="0x01" ccback="0x14" full="280" name="JOG" channel="1" deck="1" />

    • Encoders. If the encoder sends messages for increments and decrements of its position, you can defines it with a <encoder> element, with the following properties:
      • cc - the MIDI cc
      • inverted - (optional) set to "true" if the jog is inverted
      • zero - set the cc value that represents zero. For a jog that sends 0x01 for forward movement and 0x7F for rewind, set this to "0" (default). For a jog that sends 0x41 for forward movement and 0x3F for rewind, set this to "0x40".

        Example:
        <fullencoder cc="0x15" mask="0x1F" full="20" deck="1" name="SELECT" />

    • LEDs. A LED is defined by a <led> element, with the following properties:
      • note - the MIDI note
      • default - (optional) gives the name of the corresponding <button> element. If the mapper doesn't specifically provide an action for this LED, the action of the button will automatically be used to get the state of the LED.
      • zero - (optional) a different "value" to send when turning the LED off (For dim illumination of the LED)
      • min / max - (optional) sets the minimum and maximum velocity values to send to the LED (For LED's that support different levels of intensity.)

      • cc - the MIDI cc
      • value - the CC value
      • ccoff - (optional) a different MIDI cc to which to send "value" to turn the LED off

        Example:
        <led cc="0x4A" value="0x5C" ccoff="0x4A" zero="0x2C" sendstatic="true" name="LED_EFX1_BTN" default="EFX1_BTN" deck="1" channel="0" />

      If the LED requires SysEx MIDI code to be sent, see "SysEx" below.

    • Progress bars and VU meters. Progress bars are defined by a <bar> element, with the following properties:
      • cc - the MIDI cc
      • min - (optional) value to send for 0% (default 0)

      Alternatively, if the progress bar consists of several LEDs each with an individual MIDI note, you can use a <bar> element with the following properties:
      • note - the MIDI note of the first LED
      • nb - the number of LEDs (therefore the MIDI note of the last LED will be note+nb-1)
      • inverted - (optional) if set to true, the LEDs will be lit from right to left.
        Example:
        <bar note="0x0E" nb="7" name="BAR_LOOPS_REV" channel="0" deck="1" inverted="true"/>


    • RGB - Multicolor LEDs Leds that can offer various colors can be defined with a <color> element with the following properties:
      • ccred - MIDI cc for the red color intensity
      • ccgreen - MIDI cc for the green color intensity
      • ccblue - MIDI cc for the blue color intensity

      For LEDs that offer a MIDI note or cc with the colors defined in velocity you can define the color of each velocity value by providing a pre-defined color, an html color code etc as following:
      • note/cc - the MIDI note or cc of the LED
      • values - the velocity values and their assigned colors separated by comma (,). Can use :

        <digit cclsb="105" ccmsb="73" multiply="100" base="128" sign="255" sendstatic="true" name="MOTOR_SPEED" deck="1" />
        <digit cc="0x2C" ccmsb="0x4C" base="128" name="DIGIT_BPM" deck="2" channel="1" />
        <digit cc="0x2E" ccsign="0x36" signplus="0x01" signminus="0x00" name="LCD_KEY_VALUE" deck="1" channel="0" />


    • Text displays. Text displays are defined by a <text> element, with the following properties:
      • cc - the MIDI cc for the first character
      • size - the number of characters
      • encoding - (optional) the encoding to use (can be "urf8", "iso-8859-1", "ascii", etc)
      • scroll - set to "false" to prevent the display from scrolling too long strings (default is "yes")

      If the MIDI CC don't follow each other in order, you can use instead of cc=
      • ccs - list all the MIDI cc, for example ccs="010A12" means CC 0x01 for the first character, CC 0x0A for the second character, CC 0x12 for the third character.

      If the characters uses 14-bit MIDI, you can use instead of cc=
      • ccs - list all the MIDI cc for the MSB values
      • ccs_lsb - list all the MIDI cc for the LSB values

      If the text is sent through a sysex, you can use instead of cc=
      • sysex - the list of hexadecimal values to send in the sysex
      • offset - the offset (in BYTEs) from the beginning of the sysex where to write the text. If offset+size>sizeof(sysex) then the text will be inserted at the offset. Otherwise it will overwrite the text at the offset (You will need to provide a buffer of the appropriate size at the offset, e.g: 20202020202020202020 if size is 10.)
      • offsetbit- (optional) the offset (in bits) from the beginning of the sysex where to start writing the text, in case the text doesnt start from the 1st bit of the given byte.
      • encoding- can be utf8 (8 bits per character) or utf16 (16 bits per character)
      • size - Provide the number of the displayed characters (optional)
        Examples:
        <text sysex="F000013F004002000C202020202020202020202020F7" offset="9" size="12" name="TEXT" deck="1" />
        <text sysex="F07D013C62706D3EF7" offset="8" size="32" scroll="false" encoding="ascii" name="LCD_BPM" />
        <text ccs="01020304050708090A0B0C0D" ccs_lsb="21222324252728292A2B2C2D" encoding="denon" name="TEXT1" channel="1" deck="2" />

      If a sysex carries more than one text that need to be sent, you can nest other <sysex> and/or <digits>
      • Example:
        <text sysex="F04720330501021F021D0100 ........ F7">
        <sysex name="TEXT_TITLE" encoding="utf16" offset="11" offsetbit="1" size="90" deck="1" />
        <sysex name="TEXT_ARTIST" encoding="utf16" offset="120" offsetbit="6" size="90" deck="1" />
        <sysex name="TEXT_BPM" encoding="utf8" offset="230" offsetbit="4" size="3" deck="1" />
        <sysex name="TEXT_KEY" encoding="utf16" offset="237" offsetbit="3" size="8" deck="1" />
        <digit name="TEXT_LENGTH" offset="290" nbbits="32" offsetbit="0" deck="1" />
        </text>


    • SysEx commands. If the device requires SysEx initialization, you can use <init> elements, with the following properties:
      • sendsysex - the list of hexadecimal values to send

      example:
      <init sendsysex="F00001020304057F" />

      The <init> elements will be sent in the order they appear in the XML file

      If the device requires specific SysEx to be sent on exit, you can use <exit> elements, with the following properties:
      • sendsysex - the list of hexadecimal values to send

      If the device has a SysEx defined to control the LEDs, you can define a <ledsysex> element, with the following properties:
      • value - list of hexadecimal values to initialize the SysEx.
        Then, the <ledsysex> element can have child elements <led> with the following properties:
        • bit - the position of the bit inside the SysEx that will be set to 1 or to 0 according to the LED status
        • name, default, deck - same as regular <led> elements

        Example:
        <ledsysex value="F000014E10020F00010000000000F7">
        <led sendstatic="true" name="VELOCITY_SAMPLER" bit="0x57" deck="1"/>
        </ledsysex>

      If the device has other type of SysEx that need to be sent, you can define a <sysex> element, with the following properties:
      • value - list of hexadecimal values to send
      • name, default, deck - the action that will trigger the sysex to be sent everytimes the action's value goes from 0 to 1 or from false to true.
        Example:
        <sysex value="966F7F" name="DNC_RTNBLACK" default="DNC_BLACK" />

      If the device sends Midi In as sysex (e.g. pressing a button provides a sysex instead of a note or cc), you can define a <sysexin> element, with the following properties:
      • sysexid - the sysex value you receive
      • name - provide a name for the Key
      • deck, channel etc -optional (same as buttons and other elements)
        Example:
        <sysexin sysexid="F020010001" name="HOTCUE_MODE" deck="1" channel="0"/>
        <sysexin sysexid="F020010002" name="LOOP_MODE" deck="1" channel="0"/>
