i was surprised also that: seeking through the preview player was missing as a MIDI choice.

many times the DJ needs to quickly seek through a prospective (preview) song as they prepare next songs and playlists

currently, (for me) seeking through preview player is the only feature that i have to keep going to the the mouse.

everything else i have MIDI mapped to my x-session (inexpensive m-audio MIDI controller) and korg padkontrol (16 pads, multiple banks). (personally) i don't use, nor need jog wheels.

Cross is awesome. very impressed. having more fun with it than Traktor Pro 2 (i've been using Traktor for the past 4 years). everything in CrossDJ is "right there" (vs Traktor). excellent, easy to use media management.

congrats to the designers, engineers and coders for this great DJ software

also recommend (my personal opinion/input):

Preview Seek only needs a 0 through 127 Fader/Knob (direct integer) MIDI control (which allows going from the absolute beginning to absolute end of song in 1/127 increments). Knob/fader all the way to left = beginning of song. Knob/fader all the way to the right = end of song. no need for any "smart seeks" on a Preview Seek MIDI control.
