Press the SAMPLER mode button to set the PADs to Sampler mode and automatically load the related page in the Pads area of the VirtualDJ GUI.
Each one of the 16 pads triggers a sample from the selected Sampler Bank of VirtualDJ. If a bank has less than 17 samples, both sides of the DDJ-XP1 will control the same samples. If a bank has more than 16 samples, the left side of the DDJ-XP1 will control samples 1 to 16 and the right side samples 17 to 32. The PAD will be lit if a sample slot is loaded and will blink if triggered.
Press the pads to trigger a sample. Depending on the selected trigger Pad mode, use SHIFT and the same pads to stop the sample.
Use the PAGE buttons to select the Sampler Bank (previous/next).
Hold [SHIFT down and then use the PAGE buttons to select the Trigger Pad mode (on/off, hold, stutter or un-mute)
* By default the VirtualDJ GUI will show Pads 1 to 8. Use the SAMPLER mode button to toggle between the Pads 1-8 and Pads 9-16 views. Note that the Pads 9-16 view on the GUI will only be available when the Pioneer DDJ-XP1 is connected.
