Pioneer DDJ-SX

The Pioneer DDJ-SX is a 4 deck all-in-one controller that provides intuitive control of all of Mixxx's features.

User Options

To change the mapping's user options, you have to open the script file (*.js). At the top of the file under USER OPTIONS the following settings can be made:

  • PioneerDDJSX.jogwheelSensivity: Sets the jogwheel sensivity. 1 = default, 2 is twice as sensitive, 0.5 is half as sensitive.
  • PioneerDDJSX.jogwheelShiftMultiplier: Sets how much more sensitive the jogwheels get when holding [SHIFT]. Set it to 1 to disable jogwheel sensitivity increase when holding [SHIFT].
  • PioneerDDJSX.twinkleVumeterAutodjOn: If true, level-meter twinkles if AutoDJ is enabled.
  • PioneerDDJSX.autoDJAddTop: If true, the selected track will be added to AutoDJ queue-top on pressing [ROTARY SELECTOR], else the selected track will be added to AutoDJ queue-bottom.
  • PioneerDDJSX.autoDJTickInterval: Sets the duration of sleeping between AutoDJ actions if AutoDJ is enabled [ms].
  • PioneerDDJSX.autoDJMaxBpmAdjustment: Sets the maximum adjustment of BPM allowed for beats to sync if AutoDJ is enabled [BPM].
  • PioneerDDJSX.autoDJShuffleAfterSkip: If true, AutoDJ queue is being shuffled after skipping a track.
  • PioneerDDJSX.jumpPreviewEnabled: If true, by releasing [ROTARY SELECTOR], track in preview player jumps forward to “jumpPreviewPosition”.
  • PioneerDDJSX.jumpPreviewPosition: Sets the preview player absolute position, being set at releasing [ROTARY SELECTOR] and if “jumpPreviewEnabled” is enabled.
  • PioneerDDJSX.samplerCueGotoAndPlay: If true, pad press in [SAMPLER]-PAD-MODE repeatedly causes sampler to play loaded track from cue-point, else it causes to play loaded track from the beginning.
  • PioneerDDJSX.autoPFL: If true, PFL / Cue (headphone) is being activated by loading a track into certain deck.

Managed by the controller

The following functions are directly controlled by the controller (Mixxx-independent):

Group Figure [SHIFT]? Button Name Description
1 - DECK 7 - [DECK 1] Switches left deck to DECK 1 control and illumination
8 - [DECK 2] Switches right deck to DECK 2 control and illumination
9 - [DECK 3] Switches left deck to DECK 3 control and illumination
10 - [DECK 4] Switches right deck to DECK 4 control and illumination
11 - [DUAL DECK] Toggles left deck to dual deck control and illumination (DECK 1 and 3)
12 - [DUAL DECK] Toggles right deck to dual deck control and illumination (DECK 2 and 4)

Loop/Loop-Roll parameter sets

By using the [PARAMETER LEFT] and [PARAMETER RIGHT] buttons in BEATLOOP ROLL (default parameter set: 2) or BEATLOOP mode (default parameter set: 0), you can change the pad-assigned loop size. The following table shows the possible assignments (unit: beats).

Set No. PAD1 PAD2 PAD3 PAD4 PAD5 PAD6 PAD7 PAD8
0 1/4 1/2 1 2 4 8 16 32
1 1/8 1/4 1/2 1 2 4 8 16
2 1/16 1/8 1/4 1/2 1 2 4 8
3 1/32 1/16 1/8 1/4 1/2 1 2 4

Slicer description

For a detailed explanation of the slicer mode, take a look at the controller's manual. A limited slicer functionality is implemented into the controller mapping as described below.

There are two slicer modes, continuous slice and loop slice, which can be selected by pressing the [SLICER] mode button. If none or only one PAD (beat) is lit, continuous slice mode is active. If you press [SLICER] mode button again, loop slice mode will be activated and all PADs, except one for the beat, will light up.

Starting with the first beat marked on a playing track, the track is divided into sections of 8 equal parts (not visible in waveform). If the first 8 parts are reached, the next section starts. The PADs are assigned to one section, each time the active section changes, the PADs will be assigned to the new active section (PAD 1..8 = section part 1..8). The section size is dependent of the selected slicer domain, changeable by pressing [SHIFT] + [PARAMETER LEFT] or [PARAMETER RIGHT]. The default slicer domain is 8 beats, so each part represents the part between one beat and the following beat. Possible slicer domains are 8, 16, 32, 64 beats.

Continuous slice mode

The PAD lights show the active part in the active section: The active part PAD is lit, all other PAD lights are off.

Continuous slice mode moves to the next section if the end of the previous active section is reached.

By pressing PAD X, the play position jumps to the beat X of the active section. If you have pressed the PAD on-beat and hold it, the play position is playing in loop. The beat loop length depends on the selected slicer quantization (changeable by pressing [PARAMETER LEFT] or [PARAMETER RIGHT]). If you release the PAD, the playback will resume where the track would have been if the slicer wouldn't have been activated (slip mode).

Loop slice mode

The PAD lights show the active part in the active section: The active part PAD light is off, all other PADs are lit.

As soon as loop slice mode is activated, the active section is played in loop (not visible in waveform). If the end of the active section is reached, the play position jumps back to the beginning of the active section.

By pressing PAD X, the play position jumps to the beat X of the active section. In loop slice mode beat loop is not possible.

As soon as loop slice mode is deactivated (by pressing [SLICER] mode button again), the playback will resume where the track would have been if the slicer wouldn't have been activated (slip mode).

Effect Functions

This controller mapping uses the standard Mixxx mapping for effects sections on controllers.

Troubleshooting

If you experience any strange behavior of a button or a LED (e.g. wheel LEDs not working), make sure your controller is set up correctly to work with MIXXX. The DDJ-SX provides several settings, which can be changed in a special Utility-Mode.

Utility-Mode

  • Disconnect USB-cable.
  • Switch off [STANDBY/ON] the unit.
  • Hold [SHIFT] button and [PLAY/PAUSE] button at the left deck while switching on the unit [STANDBY/ON].
  • Now Utility-Mode is activated.
  • For saving and exiting Utility-Mode, switch off the unit again [STANDBY/ON].

Setting for usage of Serato DJ

To use the DDJ-SX with MIXXX, the controller must be configured for the usage of Serato DJ. You can check/change this setting as follows:
Press the [KEY LOCK] button at the left deck:

  • [KEY LOCK] button off: Controller is configured for using Serato DJ (default).
  • [KEY LOCK] button on (lit): Controller is configured for using different DJ-software.
