Start Stop Adjustment Feature?

Postby Chaleses » Thu Jul 25, 2019 5:02 am

Hi im new to the forum, im very interested on mixxx software i think it is a very powerfull tool for mixing that has encouraged me to use it everytime. :mrgreen:

So i was reading the wiki and found nothing about start stop adjustment or if theres a setting(or knob) to adjust the speed of the start/stop of a deck. like the cdj future that is separated on 2 knobs on the high end models; this to achieve a vinyl effect of the song slowing down.
If anyone know how to achieve this effect without using timecodes or if i can map this feature to a controller via midi could help me.

Thank you!

and sorry for my basic english :oops: :oops:

Some controller mappings have this feature integrated. Unfortunately this was not yet moved to the c++ engine code.
There is an open wishlist bug at Launchpad.

There are also some implementation hints, waiting for someone with interests to implement it.

What controller exactly have this mapping?
Just to know if i can copy somehow to make it work on my controller.

I'd like to help to implement it but I lack of c++ skills. I can barely modify the xml with notepad to modify basic things on skins.

I'm working currently on a standalone "CDJ" based on raspberry pi and arduino using mixxx as the software to do all basic deck functions. That's why I'm interested on this feature.

I can post some pics of the project if you want a sneek peak :)

Thank you for the soon reply.

You could use midi scripting for this:
https://www.mixxx.org/wiki/doku.php/mid ... art_effect

Also, there is https://github.com/mixxxdj/mixxx/blob/m ... scripts.js
The spinback, brake & softStart functions are here https://github.com/mixxxdj/mixxx/blob/m ... ts.js#L356

On a DIY controller a poti to set the brake value and separate buttons to trigger the respective functions with the adjusted value.
