How do I change the mapping for a Keyboard key in VirtualDJ 8


  • Go to SETTINGS CONTROLLERS tab

  • Choose the keyboard from the top-left side list (in case an additional MIDI device is available at that time). If no other custom mapping is created, the "factory default" will be pre-selected in the Mapping drop-down list.



  • Select the Key that you wish to modify its action with any of the following ways :
    • Click inside the Key learn to set the cursor in the box. Press a key on your keyboard. Each time you press a key, VirtualDJ will display the name for that key at the top of the Key Learn area. Click on the Key name to select the one you wish to map.
    • Alternatively, locate the Key from the list. Click on the Key header to sort the Keys alphabetically for easier search.



  • Type an appropriate action in the Action: box, e.g: hot_cue 1 or select an action from the list below. VirtualDJ will auto-fill with one of the available actions as you type.



  • Repeat the last 2 steps for all the Keys of your keyboard that you wish to customize.

  • Once the custom mapping is completed (you can still edit the same mapping later of course), you can provide a name (optional) and save.



  • Multiple custom mapping files can be created for the keyboard, but only one can be applied from the Mappings field.


Notes :
  • Custom mapping files can be deleted (using the x button), but not the factory default one. So, even if you have messed up with your custom one, you can always go back to the factory default and create a brand new custom one.
  • Custom mapping files are automatically saved (without using the Save Disc button) in /Documents/VirtualDJ/Mappers folder
