It occurred to me that pairing the op-z as a midi controller with the DJ app that I use sometimes (djay Pro 2), would be super good compact rig, as those lil smooth rotary encoders are like itsy bitsy jog wheels which could be perfect for controlling my decks.
I have a problem though: when I map the O P Z, no matter what settings I have tried changing, the behaviour is not workable. what seems to happen is that no matter which way I turn the encoders the track will scrub one way or the other. There are several options in the MIDI settings of djay Pro 2, (ie. Setting the control as endless, rotary, fader, button, etc, then some of these have additional options like speed and acceleration if I remember correctly) and I’ve tried fiddling with these, which changes the result, but nothing is usable.
There are three possible solutions that I have in mind.
Number one is if I can put the opz into some kind of MIDI controller mode where the encoders will output pure endlees rotary information. At the moment it just seems to be basically doing it’s opz thing while also putting out MIDI information… this feels clunky because I would be essentially editing a project while all I want to do is control DJ Pro. I know I can turn off autosave, but obviously this is a workaround and not an elegant solution. I know beggars can’t be choosers though, haha, and I’ll be happy with whatever best gets me going.
Number 2 is if there’s some sort of midi program which can translate dop sets MIDI output to something workable for djay Pro 2.
The third possible solution is that the encoders will output different information depending on which mode I’m in… They don’t seem to be outputting endless encoder information, rather, based on their behaviour, I assume they’re outputting the values that correspond to where they are at between 0 and 127.
Any ideas on this are appreciated.
