Hi

thanks for this - i am struggling though.

I have copied the xml file from a mapping to the controllers folder but still can't see it to select it in the controller prefs in Mixxx- even after restart.

Any suggestions?

thanks
Sam

Open the mixxx log file : https://mixxx.org/wiki/doku.php/finding ... x.log_file
Locate a line that says
Searching for controller preset

It will tell you the folders where Mixxx is looking for controller presets

This is an example of mine:
Debug [Controller]: Searching for controller preset "C:/Users/jazet/AppData/Local/Mixxx/controllers/MixTrack_Platinum.midi.xml" in paths: "C:/Users/jazet/AppData/Local/Mixxx/controllers/,D:/programacio/mixxx/mixxx-master/dist64/controllers/"


Also, remember that the mapping will appear ordered by the name specified inside the controller xml file:
<MixxxControllerPreset mixxxVersion="2.1.0+" schemaVersion="1">
<info>
<name>Numark Mixtrack Platinum</name>


Also please note that the list shows first the controllers on Mixxx application folder, and after those, it lists the controllers on the user folder.

Hi
thanks - that worked, there was a second folder it was looking in.

now i have this issue with the jog wheels - i will ask the guy who made the mapping but would you expect the jog wheels to be set up to act like vinyl?

this is the error when trying to use jog wheel:

Uncaught exception at line 180 in file C:/Users/dssv/AppData/Local/Mixxx/controllers/Behringer-CMD-Studio-2A-JM-scripts.js: TypeError: Result of expression 'B2A.scratchMode' [undefined] is not an object.

thanks
Sam

Yes, that is a possible error on that mapping, so contact its developer
