Sujet Is the new Pioneer DDJ-400 controller supported by VirtualDJ?
Hi guys, I would like to know if the new entry-level controller Pioneer DDJ-400 is supported or is going to be supported by VirtualDJ software...

I know that I will be able to map buttons, sliders, knobs and pads anyway but I will probably not be able to map the LEDs if VirtualDJ doesn't support the console, right?

Let me know, thanks!

 Best Answer We have pushed the mapping files for Pioneer DDJ-400 as a silent patch for the current Early Access (Build 4514)
So in order to have your DDJ-400 working with VirtualDJ, you will need to ..


1. Enable EarlyAccessUpdates setting from VDJ Settings->OPTIONS tab
2. Restart VirtualDJ and wait for the updated Build to be downloaded.
3. Accept the Update
4. Once VDJ is opened, wait for a few seconds and then restart.

If you are on Build 4514 (Early Access), you just need to follow Step 4.

If not working, verify that you have a controllers.dat file in /Documents/VirtualDJ/Devices folder. If not repeat the steps above.

1) Atomix never provide dates for support of controllers. It will be "when it's ready".

2) Any VDJ user can map a controller by writing definition and mapping files. Details in the wiki.

I've seen there is a "Cooming soon" section here on the website anyways...

As I said before, I know but mapping LEDs is a little bit more complicated they may require System Exclusive MIDI Messages.

As you said I've seen that VirtualDJ supports controller definition file some time ago which is great I will try that in case as soon as I get the device... ;)

Thanks for the information. Is it foreseeable until when the mapping will be available? So it lulls months or just 4 weeks that's the question behind it.

As stated, VDJ does not give timelines. You're lucking though, because they also stated that it's "coming soon", which means they are working on it, as well as other controllers. Don't worry, when it's done they release it.

I recently purchased the DDJ400 myself and am not a fan of Rekordbox or Serato, my preference if Virtual DJ as I have all my hotcues etc all ready set and I don't want to have to start going through music again to do this in the other software, TBH, I think Virtual DJ is a better software

I should have done abit more research as I wasn't aware the DDJ400 isn't compatible with Virtual DJ but if any one has any indication as to when this will likely be I would appreciate it. if its not anytime soon I may leave the controller back and use my other controller that I can use with Virtual DJ

thanks

I would say yes

- The build is still an Early Acces build, but the devs wrote yesterday, that unless a bad bug is found soon, it will be the next public build - so it should be pretty safe

- The mapping is just a mapping. So if it works the first time you push a button, it will also work and do the same the next time you press the button.
So if you find it to be valid for all you are doing when you test it at home, you should be good to go

It's included in the software. So there are no mapping files.
Simply download the latest version and upgrade, and you are good to go
