The Numark N4 is a 4-deck DJ controller with seamless integration of external devices.
Neu in Version 1.10.
This mapping has some unusual features like per Deck shift buttons and multiple pages of hotcues.
An annotated, ready-to-print overlay of this mapping can be downloaded for
DIN A3 and
DIN A4 printers.
Some settings in the script can be changed by editing them at the top of the script.
The Deck consists of the jogwheel, play, cue, the topContainer (which hold the eight square buttons and the four encoders), pitchslider, pitchrange, search, keylock, tap, sync and pitchbend ±.
The mapping features some peculiar features which might not be discoverable by standard trial-and-error.
A shift button is bound to its Deck, which means that you can’t use the shift button of Deck1 to access a shifted function on any of the other three Decks. Moreover the shiftbuttons can also work as toggle switches instead of pushbuttons (enabled via components.js Button.type.powerWindow). This means that if the shiftbutton is pressed for a longer period than 275ms it will bounce back to its original state (like a regular shift-/pushbutton). If the Button was pressed for a shorter period than 275ms, the button will remain in that state until it is pressed again (like a toggling button).
The four lower buttons of the topContainer are hotcues. They can be changed by using the corresponding Encoder [HOTCUE PAGE]. The current assignment will then be shown for one second in the upper row. Currently up to 4 Pages are supported (with 4 hotcues each). A demo of how this looks can be seen on JsFiddle (not done yet) (the slider represents the Encoder).
Most of these controls behave as expected but they are listed in detail for the sake of completeness anyways.
Long Press: Toggle Sync Lock
Shifted: Toggles magnet (quantize)
The TopContainer holds four assignable Hotcue buttons, four loop buttons, which can enable FX via Shift, and four Encoderknobs.
The Mixer features four channels with identical functionality and controls for the library and other miscellaneous features.
A channel consists of a volume fader, a gain knob, knobs for low,mid,high EQ a Loadbutton and a pflButton. These are internally still part of the Deck which is why the shiftbutton of Deck 1 won’t work with the Loadbutton or gainknob of Deck2/3/4.
Default: Channel Volume
Default: EQ Low
Default: EQ Mid
Default: EQ High
The Library is managed via the Library Encoder. Any shiftbutton can be used to access shift functionanly
The Crossfader and its assignment buttons are integrated seamlessly with Mixxx.
Line/PC Input Source¶
Function as expected: Mutes the corresponding Deck in Mixxx if set to Line.
Normal: Uses the crossfader parameters that were present when the mapping was loaded Scratch: Uses Scratch typical parameters for hard cuts
Doesn’t manipulate the mixxx controls. Make sure the head gain is not zero and the mix is set to 100% PFL
Make sure its high enough within mixxx
Behaves as espected (but doesn’t manipulate any mixxx controls).
