Reloop Jockey 3 Master Edition¶
The Reloop Jockey 3 Master Edition is a 2 Channel Controller with the option to control 4 Channels. It has a built-in sound card with 6 channels in and 4 channels out. It features both balanced 1/4” and unbalanced RCA master outputs plus RCA booth outputs with an independent volume control. It can also be used as a stand-alone mixer, or used to mix an analog source with music files in Mixxx. This device requires a power adapter in addition to the USB cable.
New in version 2.1.
This device is not USB MIDI class compliant. Its signals are translated to MIDI by special drivers on Windows and macOS. There is no driver available for Linux.
The Mixxx mapping uses the same settings as Reloop’s Traktor mapping. Leave the MIDI channels as the default 1-4. If you have problems with the jogwheels, set the jogwheel resolution to 2048. (Please read the manual of this Controller section 5.1 and 5.1.2)
Set the Input 1 and Input 2 switches on the front side of the Jockey 3 ME to SW.
Mixxx Sound Hardware Preferences¶
Master output: channels 1-2
Headphone output: channels 3-4
Auxiliary or vinyl input 1: channels 1-2
Auxiliary or vinyl input 2: channels 3-4
Microphone input: channels 5-6
Trax encoder: scroll through library. With shift, scroll through sections on the left side of the library. Push to toggle big library.
Load button: load selected track into active deck
Deck switches: select between controlling deck 1/3 or analog input 1 on the left; select between controlling deck 2/4 or analog input 2 on the right. Note that the analog inputs are only affected by the mixer controls but not the other deck controls.
Gain: set deck gain
High/mid/low: adjust EQ for high/mid/low frequencies
Master/booth/phones: control the Jockey 3 ME’s sound card. These knobs do not send MIDI messages or adjust values in Mixxx, so turning them will not change anything on screen. Use these but don’t change the software knobs on screen in Mixxx.
Headphones: play deck on headphone output
Cuemix: Fade between PFL and master output on headphones
Vertical faders: deck volume
Level meter LEDs: show the level of the deck
Crossfader: fade between decks
Crossfader curve (front side of controller): Adjust crossfader curve between fade and cut.
Play/pause: play/pause or, with shift, toggle keylock
Cue: behavior depends on cue mode set in Mixxx preferences. With shift, it does not work as labeled; it toggles quantize.
Cup: Like Cue, but it plays only after releasing the button.
Sync: toggle master sync. With shift, it does not work as labeled; it toggles microphone talkover.
Set the jog wheel mode by pressing one of the 4 buttons beside the jog wheel, below the trash and 5-8 buttons.
Off: By default, all mode buttons are off. In this default mode, moving the jogwheel temporarily bends the pitch, regardless of whether it is moved from the top or the side.
Scratch: Move the wheel from the top to scratch. Touch the outside rubber ring to temporarily bend the pitch.
Pitch bend: Move the wheel to control the SuperKnob on EffectUnit of this Deck. FIXME (Maybe a Touch Control?)
Search: Search position in file quickly. Touch stops the Deck.
Trax: Not Mapped. FIXME (No Plans)
Press an unlit hotcue button to set that hotcue at the current position. Press a lit hotcue button to jump to that hotcue. To delete a hotcue, hold the Trash button while pressing a hotcue. To toggle between hotcues 1-4 and 5-8, press the 5-8 button.
Length encoder: Press to activate a 4 beat loop. Double or half the beats of the loop by turning
Move encoder: Move a track 4 Beats forward or backward. Push, hold and Turn it to halve or double the value of 4 Beats.
Loop button: Turn on/off a Loop that is set from Length encoder. With shift, sets the start position of a loop.
Reloop button: Repeat the entire file. With shift, sets the end position of a loop.
Filter: turn to apply a highpass or lowpass filter. On Deck A, press Shift and turn Filter to adjust the Gain of the Microphone
Pan: On Deck A, turn to fade between the left and right speakers on the master output. (Balance)
< Beat: Beatjump by one beat back. With shift, moves the beatgrid lines further from each other (lower BPM by 0.01)
Beat >: Beatjump by one beat forward. With shift, moves beatgrid lines closer to each other (raise BPM by 0.01)
Pitch fader: adjust playback rate of deck (with keylock, only adjusts tempo and not pitch)
+/-: Pitch temporarily faster or slower.
FX 1: Shift - (Minus) does not function as labeled. It aligns the beatgrid with the current play position.
The effect section controls the effect chain with the same number as the deck selected by the deck switch, although any effect chain can be applied to any deck.
Dry/wet: adjust how much the effect is applied. With shift, turn to select different effect chain presets
FX Param: adjust effect parameters 1-3 for the first effect in the chain.
Press FX Param 1-3 + Shift: edit how effect parameters are linked to the superknob. The effect selected corresponds to the number of the FX Param encoder pressed. For example, pressing FX Param 2 with shift on deck 3 edits Effect2 of the EffectRack3. Each encoder press with shift changes what is being edited:
Select which effect parameter to edit
Select a [[effects framework#linking values|superknob link type between 0 and 4]] for the parameter selected on the first press
Select whether the [[effects framework#linking values|superknob link is inverted]] for the parameter selected on the first press
Close superknob link editing mode
FX on: enable/disable effect chain
FX B1/2/3: enable/disable effect 1/2/3 on this chain
Preset 1-4 (shift+effect buttons): apply effect chain to that deck number
