The DDM4000 is a 5-Channel Digital DJ Mixer with Sampler, 4 FX Sections, BPM Counters and MIDI support. Each of the following sections can be configured separately to be used either for audio or as MIDI controller:

  • Channel 1-4

  • Microphone Channel

  • Crossfader

  • Sampler

The mixer contains no digital interfaces for audio or microphones.

Nuevo en la versión 2.3.

Compatibility

This controller contains a MIDI interface with 5-pin DIN jacks In/Out/Thru. If your soundcard does not offer DIN jacks, a separate USB/MIDI interface is required to use it on GNU/Linux, Mac OS X, and Windows.

  1. Long press the CONSOLE SETUP knob

  2. Select MIDI SETTINGS by turning and pressing the CONSOLE SETUP knob

  3. Select the sections that you want to use as MIDI controller

  4. Press the ESC button to exit MIDI Setup

  5. To make the change persistent, save the settings in a user preset. See the controller manual for details.

Nota

On some units of this mixer, the P1 / P2 / P3 buttons show an unexpected behavior in MIDI mode. When such a LED is turned on via MIDI, it flashes shortly but does not stay lit. Firmware version 1.02 (Dec 14 2007) is known to show this behavior, and there’s no fix available according to a reply from the technical support:

«I see the issue, but sorry, the code is 15 years old and getting the 15 year old tools (plus license, plus old windows version) needed to compile it, together with finding the bug in a very complex code base (without access to the developer) makes fixing this nearly impossible.»
