Keyboard shortcut to auto crossfade and play together

Postby jbaratta on 14 Jul 2017, 15:23

I haven't figured out how to auto crossfade and play at the same time. What I'm doing now is hitting the (Left or Right Arrow) to crossfade and then hitting Play. I want to do that in one click.

Add the playpause command to the arrow keys.

The arrow keys should have the following commands:
left Arrow
fam(Mixer).AutoCrossFadeToLeft
fam(Player)[0x1].PlayPause

right Arrow
fam(Mixer).AutoCrossFadeToRight
fam(Player)[0x2].PlayPause

Have you taken a look at the MIDI Learn Section of the Cross manual? There are also utube tutorials on how to use the MIDI learn capabilities in Cross.

]I checked out the MIDI learn center and several Youtube tutorials. I may have not explained my issue well enough. I don't want to use a controller, and only use my laptop. I want to set a key (say the letter z) to crossfade left and start the song (play/pause). It was easy to set the crossfader left shortcut key to z, but it appears that you can only set one action per shortcut key.

So it appears that you already have the autocrossfade mapped.

So open the section for player A
Scroll down the list
look the play/pause command
click the green + sign
When the window appears, press the Z

Repeat the step for player 2 but press the x

The result will be that when you press Z it will auto crossfade to the left and start Player A.

when you press X it will auto crossfade to the right and start Player B.
