When the Jog is released but still moving a bit backwards, VDJ needs to decide if you are done with scratching or doing a Backspin. Can you try with the Setting TouchwheelSpinThreshold to a higher value, like 1,0 or 2.0 or even 3.0 and see if its getting better for your mix style ?
If not improved and you there is an issue even when the Jog is not moving at all, then it could be a latency issue. Are you on Mac or Windows ? What is the latency set to ? (from ASIO panel on Windows or the Latency VDJ setting on Mac)

When Crossfader is closed, can you put mouse over the Crossfader on the GUI and see what the Tooltip reports as value ?

We thought that this had to do with our own units only, but since its reported from others already, it seems that affects all of them, or at least a big production range.
We added some parameter in the definition to set the maximum position at an earlier value, and seems to be working fine now.
This change/fix will be available in next Early Access Build, whenever that comes.
In the meantime, what you can do is to change the mapping of the Crossfader from..
param_multiply 1.01 & crossfader

The issue is that the TRS part doesn’t work when pressed and I noticed the slicer making loops instead of showing the lit up pad going in progression.
I have yet to test this in Serato, but I know you guys just made it compatible. Are there still bugs that need working out in Virtual DJ?

To get the fix..
- Open VirtualDJ (while your computer is connected to the Internet)
- Wait for 1 minute - dont have to do anything - to silently download the patch-fix
- Close VDJ and then open again.
- Make sure the "factory default" mapping is selected in Controllers tab of VirtualDJ settings.
To verify that you got the patch-fix, you should see a controllers.dat file in /Devices folder and your Build number should be 4291.1424
For Slicer, I don't understand what u mean and works fine here, but perhaps you have the "Step" Parameter to a value not equal to 1 beat and seems like its "looping" fast ?
BTW, Slicer mode is SHIFT+ROLL-SLICER button.
2nd press of ROLL-SLICER button offers the Loop page http://www.virtualdj.com/manuals/hardware/roland/dj505/layout/pads.html
