Topic: Controller Cat mode
Is it possible to make a script for locking a controller quickly off an on? I have this problem that my cats really love to walk over my denon mc6000mk2, and even if i just go to the kitchen to get something, you bet one of my cats have walked over the controller and pressed auto loop or something. I need a fast on/off button... :p

Not 2 sec but

Click Shift+Esc (= settings)
Click controllers
Click the dropdown (assuming your controller is selected)
Select ignore
Click save

The same when you want to unlock

Maybe there is a faster way to do the ignore, but I didn't spot it

Another option is to use the lock plugin:

I haven't test that one, though

Thanks, that method did the trick really good, and maybe there is a way to build a script to map to buttons on virtual dj... hmmm...

The lock plugin were only locking the whole windows until clicking ctrl-alt-del, no password required to unlock. Not locking the controller.
