Please refer to the user manual for more details about theaudio configuration in Mixxx and learning how to set your levels properly.

Mapping description

Save both MIDI and script files to your user controller mapping folder, then load the preset as described in the user manual

NOTE: As it is not being used in the mapping , I'd recommend disabling the Proximity sensor (AIR control) in the DJControl AIR+ control panel in order to prevent unnecessary MIDI data being sent to Mixxx
