Sujet Deck Unload Time
djdonnPRO InfinityMember since 2006
I'm using Fruit skin. When I right click on the Pause/Stop button, the deck unloads, but it takes 2 seconds. Is there a setting where I can change/shorten that time?

I think it takes that long so that its not recorded as an accidental press of the mouse.

It's a right click. It would have to be pretty deliberate. VDJ8 default skin unloads in half the time. (1 sec vs 2 with Fruit)

look in the XML file.. edit and search UNLOAD

I quickly look it up and this is what I saw (several palces, I assumes is for each deck needed to be changed) or ask FRUIT.
I assuming the 1500ms is the timer.

OK I got it. I edited it to 500ms and it works perfect. Thank you.

Just out of my own curiosity, why do you need the deck to unload so fast? Is there a time issue you have?
Personally I like it to take a moment to unload, as its easy to miss-click and then have to set up a track all over again....
I just dont understand the urgency over 1 second......

It's just a thing. When I want it to unload, I want it to unload quickly. The default skin unloads quicker than the Fruit skin. I was used to that before I switched to Fruit. So, I edited the Fruit skin and changed the unload time to 1/2 second.
