Script for DDJ-SX...
Sujet Script for DDJ-SX2 effects ON buttons
I just connected my DDJ-SX and I'm having some issues.
1. First issue
The first effects button (FX1_1_ON) for the left deck turns on the effect in the window and when shift is held, you can change the effect with the button. This is the script
var '$fx2multi' ? var_equal '$fx2' 1 ? deck 1 effect 1 active : var_equal '$fx2' 2 ? deck 2 effect 1 active : var_equal '$fx2' 3 ? deck 3 effect 1 active : var_equal '$fx2' 4 ? deck 4 effect 1 active : deck right effect 1 active : var_equal '$fx2' 1 ? deck 1 effect active : var_equal '$fx2' 2 ? deck 2 effect active : var_equal '$fx2' 3 ? deck 3 effect active var_equal '$fx2' 4 ? deck 4 effect active : deck right effect active
The first effect button on the second deck acts the same. The second and third effect buttons for each deck don't control anything. I tried a simple scripts like:
effect_active 1 'flanger' on
Nothing happens when pressed.
2. Second Issue
I changed the Slip/Vinyl button to Scratch/Vinyl and now it no longer is lit during any mode.
Can you help? Thanks

Read pages 10, 11 and 12 that describe how effects work.
Both units offer 2 "modes" for the effects: Single (which is the default) where each FX Unit controls one single effect, and Multi where each FX unit controls 3 different effects.
On "Single" mode the buttons and sliders 2 & 3 work only if an effect offers such parameters (not all effects offer 2 or 3 switches or knobs / parameters)
For the SLIP/VINYL:
What changes did you made ? By default "vinyl mode" is assigned on SHIFT+SLIP on SX2.
If you changed the SLIP button to become "vinyl_mode" it should work as well. However you also need to change the LED_SLIP element to "vinyl_mode" in order to get the led working as in the default mapper it uses it's own action. You can also erase the LED_SLIP element completely. In that case the led will use the code of the button.

Press SHIFT+TAP button to switch to multi FX mode for the other buttons to activate more effects

2. For the FX issue I switched to Multi FX mode with Shift + Tap. The FX On button 1 is fine for FX1 and FX2. When I press the FX On button 2 or 3 for FX1 or FX2 the buttons are lit but nothing activates while song is playing. I noticed two things:
a. I switched to 2-deck mode in the skin and expanded the Effect section to see the three slots. When I pressed the button FX button 2 or 3 the effect in the Slot2 or Slot3 in the drop down boxes doesn't highlight or change the effect when Shift is held.
b. When I click the drop down arrow in the Effects box in 4-deck mode the Effects menu appears and I click the FX On button 1. I can see the radio button to the left of the effect turn green. Repeatedly pressing the FX button 1 button turns the radio button green/off in the drop down menu.
When I try this with FX On button 2 and 3 it works the same way. The problem is there is no way to see which effect you are choosing when you hold Shift + FX On in this mode.
Any way around this?
