Discussion about Pads to Keyboard

The mapping offers the ability to control the Pads section of VirtualDJ from your keyboard.
Loops, Cues, Samples functions have been removed from the default mapping and the F Keys now control all of those functions, depending on the selected Pads page.
Use the TAB key to select Left or Right deck in order Pads actions to applied to the desired deck.

F1 to F8 : Pads 1 to 8
SHIFT+F1 to SHIFT+F8 : Pads Shift actions 1 to 8
F9 : previous Page
F10 : next Page
SHIFT+F9 : Hotcues Page
SHIFT+F10 : Toggles between Loop and Sampler Pages
F11 : Param1 -1
F12 : Param1 +1
SHIFT+F11 : Param2 -1
SHIFT+F12 : Param2 +1

ESCAPE : Set Focus to Search bar.

The rest of the Keys are assigned like the factory default mapping.

Hey djdad, thanks for this nice piece of work.
1 question;
do you have to use the TAB key in shifted position, or is it possible that the pad pagecontrol would sort of follow the master deck automaticcaly unless I state otherwise?
btw. I'm asking the question before I've even tried it out, sorry.
best

If you prefer the F keys to trigger Pad actions to the deck that is playing out live (the MasterDeck), you can add deck active in front of every action.
E.g. instead of ..pad 1 , have ... deck active pad 1

But i dont find this much useful, meaning that in order to toggle Pads control between decks, you will need to manually change the MAsterDeck, so not advised.

After playing with it a bit I tend to agree with you.
Thx for the good work.

Hi there,

Is there any way to control which pads (left or right) each key controls?
e.g. when I press 1 to use pad1, I cant choose whether it is left pad or right

Thanks

so instead of adding deck active, add leftdeck or rightdeck i would imagine
