The screen and message tells me exactly what I needed to know.

There is no hardware switching between decks and or between pad modes.

Whenever a controller with 8 pads on each side and controls for 4 deck needs to be mapped the hardware configuration from best to really bad is as follows

Best- All hardware switching with layering- It means that there is a channel switch when changing deck and or using the shift key. Also there is a parameter switch for each pad in the different pad modes. Good example Pioneer's line of DDJ controllers

Good- Parameter switch for pads no channel switch for deck.
Example- Hercules P32

OK- Hardware switch for decks, no parameter switch for pads.
Example MC8000.

Bad- no channel switch for decks, no parameter switch for pads.
This case, very hard to map in Cross but not impossible. Cross does not support standard XML mapping which is used to compensate for the lack of hardware.

This type of controller places additional burden on CPU resources by using software for map layering. Depending on the system specs if they are high is OK but if they are low it could be unstable.

Will be starting to map today and will advise on additional testing.

OK, I am back and getting back into the swing of things.
Before continuing I want to ask the general question.

Is there someone close to Maryland, US that has this controller?
Having the controller in hand means that I could map this entire controller for 4 decks support and 2 samplers in a week.

Not having the controller at hand can make mapping very difficult specially when a controller (like this one) relies on software layers rather than hardware addresses.

I really hope that there is someone who can make it easier.

Questions about the VU meters LED from Sfronti
Let's try the easy stuff 1st

The following code in the output section of the file. If you don't know what the output section is let me know and we back track a little.
If the following code does not work there are other ways to do it I am just trying the easy one 1st.
Code: Select all
        <mapping>
          <control alias="fam(Mixer).ChannelAMeter" value="%"/>
          <MIDI type="CC" parameter="0x14" channel="0x3" value="%"/>
        </mapping>
        <mapping>
          <control alias="fam(Mixer).ChannelBMeter" value="%"/>
          <MIDI type="CC" parameter="0x15" channel="0x3" value="%"/>
        </mapping>
        <mapping>
          <control alias="fam(Mixer).ChannelCMeter" value="%"/>
          <MIDI type="CC" parameter="0x16" channel="0x3" value="%"/>
        </mapping>
        <mapping>
          <control alias="fam(Mixer).ChannelDMeter" value="%"/>
          <MIDI type="CC" parameter="0x17" channel="0x3" value="%"/>
        </mapping>
        <mapping>
          <control alias="fam(Mixer).MasterMeterLeft " value="%"/>
          <MIDI type="CC" parameter="0x18" channel="0x3" value="%"/>
        </mapping>
        <mapping>
          <control alias="fam(Mixer).MasterMeterRight " value="%"/>
          <MIDI type="CC" parameter="0x19" channel="0x3" value="%"/>
        </mapping>


Let me know if this works or not. If it doesn't then I have to built the code for it but don't worry there are other options.

Unfortunately it's not working.
Here is my file to have a look if i put the code correct.

Did you try testing on other than Player A. Your map had a conflicting LED command. The very 1st LED command should be taken out. The ones you added at the bottom of the file are fine.
Take out that command, try again, and let me know.
In the meantime if that doesn't work I am formulating a solution.

I've deleted the very first led command and tested all decks but unfortunately still no luck

Thanks a lot
