Topic: hamster xf Akai AMX
Hello I have a Akai AMX mixer and it has a hamster_crossfader switch, the thing is sometimes when I open vdj8 the crossfader is reversed even when the hamster switch is off, I have to turn the switch ON to have the oposite result: hamster switch On but XF isnt reversed.... how can I avoid this? I have tried script hamster_crossfader 0(zero) ON/ OFF / active no results... I want vdj8 to check if the hasmter switch is on or off on ONINIT.
thank you

Will have to check if the CF REVERSE key is sending its status when the unit initalizes. There is a chance that its not included in the dump request report.
Can you try to assign this as ..
loop
or ..
down ? loop on : loop off
and see if loop is enabled when you start VDJ with the AMX ?

if I set "loop" to ONINIT does nothing on startup, but it loops if I load a track on deck1 and reinit the amx controller, the second command "down ? loop on : loop off" does nothing even after reinit_controllers.
thank you

I found out that when I start vdj8 and the hamster is "active" (but the HW switch is off) I open settings window and the hamster xf option is "Yes"...I have to switch back to off.
what script code should I use on ONINIT to start always with hamster xf "No"?
thank you
