Djd sometimes doesn't close - meaning - I can get several instances of djd running in Task Manager - of-course - once I close the original running djd - the other instances don't show on screen, but they are present in the task manager.

This might also have been fixed in the last build, but I'm not entirely sure, so I'll keep an eye on it. I don't think I've seen this happen myself lately.

Also I noticed it says djdecksdx.exe *32 in Task Manager - I don't know if 64 bit compatibility is on your to do list or if it makes a difference performance wise

The code is ready for 64-bit, but I also need to find 64-bit versions for the dependencies that djDecks uses. I will try this later of course. I think it could bring a little performance improvement, but probably not that much.

Pitch fluctuations - I have the m44-7 needles(famous for picking up dust) - One of my TT's was fluctuating like crazy( extreme audible slowing and speeding up) - I checked in my other software to to ensure it wasnt my TT.. So djd needs to tighten up in that aspect - pitch fluctuations with dirt needles. Ex in my other software the deck sounds garbled(that's how I know its time to clean the needle) when there is too much dust on the needle but there is no fluctuation..

Was this after callibration? If so I suppose the pitch variation value would have been quite high. Could you try to lower it / set it back to its default value? I suspect this will make the pitch tighter, but also cause the garbling sound due to very fast fluctuations.

Quote:
Downloading plugings - Not much of a big deal but :
1. Needs a better visual indicator to indicate a download is in progress.
2. Djd didn't detect the right plugin for me.. I am using scratch live - It downloaded traktor.
3. The djd serato plugin doesnt download to the right directory - Of-course it was complied for the original djd so it is understandable :)

It won't detect the plugin, it will download all available plugins. It should download them to a 'vinylcontrol' sub-folder in your user settings dir where they should be found by djDecks DX.

I didn't calibrate first. I didn't know you could manually reset the pitch variance - I just got i back to 0.00% by dragging on the numbers with the mouse. I'll test when I get on the TT again.

A couple of small things to display less in the main menu:

-When DX is starting have it check to see if a Sampler already exists in a skin and if not then add it to the menu.
-Place Select Slide Show folder in Options under Visuals and some options for it.(time on screen, wipes, ect.)

New build:
Code:
-Some performance improvements for tag database
-Added infobar objects in chiron skin
-Drop-down in midi selection now has 'edit' option to open the editor for the selected xml
-Improved editor for keyboard mappings
-Default keyboard mapping is now the same as in regular djDecks
-Fixed crash when connecting/disconnecting an external display while a video is paused


When you want to enter the key that you want to bind, simply go to the 'bytes' text field and enter the key you want. (This can include ctrl, alt or shift and the correct tab will automatically be selected)
If you want to add specific actions for only key-up or key-down, add a new command, and enter the key in only the bytes up or bytes down field.

1. How do I get album art displayed? <value>songpicture</value> does not work.

2. Any chance of a more nice visualisation? I tried searching for a VST one but appearently this does not exist.

works in chiron for me.
If it doesn't work for you in chiron either, how are the pictures stored, are they in the tag, or next to them in separate files?

Other visualisations support is planned, but not sure yet how this will work.

Repeat crashes on trying to mod keyboard shortcuts...

New build
Code:
-Fixed crash when trying to edit keyboard mapping for xml that does not contain tabs kb_default, kb_alt, kb_ctrl and kb_shift
-Fixed F10 not working for keyboard mappings
-Enter is now working to select items in lists
-'Menu key' now also works to open right-click menu in lists, and they can be navigated with arrows
-Escape can be used to exit focus from search field to use keyboard shortcuts
-Beatgrid effect tab now includes button to remove a previously set beat


For the combination of ctrl+key to automatically select the right tab, your xml needs the kb_default, kb_alt, kb_ctrl and kb_shift tabs, which are available in the mapping that is now included with djDecks.
Otherwise you would still have to manually select the tab to be used or manually add these tabs to your xml.

These are drawtype 7 and 8 for buttons, I don't think they were used earlier, so you probably need to change them to the correct drawtype.

I have found a problem with the DJD DX:
- When I use only DJD DX in conjunction with 2 CDJ 2000 the program works correctly.
- When I use the DX DJD and then I use a USB connection or LINK of the cdj 2000 the computer connection is lost after some time and DJD DX does not work anymore (freeze). To confirm that the DJD DX is frozen enough to have a window open with another set (eg Windows Explorer) and leave this window in front of DJD DX. This way you can not make the window DJD DX jump forward.
- Only when I go back in CONTROL MODE and I re-connect (PUSH TO CONNECT) is that the DJD DX back to work.

Therefore is not possible using DJD DX in conjunction with other media (USB LINK) the CDJ 2000.

why would you try to use link or usb while using djDecks anyway?
most laptops have (at least) 3 usb ports these days, right? just insert the usb thumb in the laptop...

or worst case scenario (having no free usb port) disconnect the non playing cdj, connect & copy the thumb content, disconnect thumb, & reconnect the other cdj (in midi mode it should reconnect automatically in about 5secs, in HID mode you may have to go into 'options' again, and press reconnect)

I just tried, and at least with 1 cdj-2000 I couldn't get djd dx to stop responding when switching to a usb track on the cdj.
How long did it take before djd stopped responding? Could you try if it also happens with only one cdj?

This problem does not happen immediately.
In my case this problem happens after using the CDJ 2000 for some time without using the DJD DX (eg 10 minutes). To prove you need the DX DJD behind another window.
I use 2 CDJ.
I'll do the test with only one CDJ and put the result for you.

Do you have the cdj configured for sound output as well? And if so, did you use ASIO or something else?
