Sujet Script for DDJ-SX2 effects ON buttons

Ce topic est ancien et peut contenir des informations obselètes ou incorrectes.

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
effect_active 1

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

From this page: download the operation manual for your unit:
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)


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.

Thanks for your quick response. I did check out the manual and I'm using the Single FX mode. My issue is when I press the FX (2 or 3) On button for both decks, no effect is activated. I haven't made any changes to the scripts. As far as the Slip/Vinyl button, I'll try that today.

Yes, no effect is activated because you are on SINGLE effect mode
Press SHIFT+TAP button to switch to multi FX mode for the other buttons to activate more effects

Oh OK. I'll try that also. Thanks again.

1. For the Slip button LED issue I changed to "vinyl_mode" for the SLIP_LED and that worked, thanks!

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?

What's up arzee1 did anyone answer your question on the effects? I have been trying to figure that out myself.
