 How do I map a keyboard shortcut

How do I add a shortcut to the existing Keyboard Mapper 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). Make sure the factory default is selected from the Mapping drop-down list (or select a different one if the default is not the one that you wish to modify).



  • Click inside the Key learn to set the cursor in the box. Press the key from your keyboard that you wish to create a shortcut for. Each time you press a key, VirtualDJ will display the name for that key in the Key Learn box.



  • Type an appropriate action in the Action: box, e.g: effect_active 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 add.

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



  • Once the factory default mapping is modified, VirtualDJ will automatically create a custom mapping file. 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
