Topic: SilverSleek 3 - Page: 4
another couple questions :

1.how do I select the active deck from the skin? ( for seek + - and effect pad commands ) I can see no way to select active deck, apart from controller mapping it

2. do you by any chance know a browser hack to collapse all folders back to unopened state for a visual refresh of the folders. There is a reset root folders command but I dont understand it.

Man this skin is really pleasant to look at

That's NOT Master Tempo. That's Master DECK indicator. "RC:Auto" means that if you right click on "MST" the MasterDeck selection will revert back to "auto" in case you you used the buttons to select a master deck manually.
Master Tempo indicator / button is placed on bottom right side of the jog. (The button with the music note)
Also on deck display you should see TEMPO or PITCH above the current tempo/pitch adjustment. You can click this "PITCH" or "TEMPO" label to toggle master tempo on/off (as you can with the button on the jogs)
Also you can click the pitch/tempo adjustment text to get a few options regarding pitch

There is a sampler level adjust knob, but it's visible on "Audio Mixer Full" view. I will investigate if I can squeeze it in this view as well.
Regarding the VU's:
Deck VU-Meters are always visible inside the decks themselves. There's no point IMHO to clone them on 2 sides

3) Horizontal stripes would be really cool as an option.

The skin background is transparent on the browser section. That's why you see this metallic background which fades to brighter in the middle and darker in the sides.
Browser stripes unfortunately can only be solid colors. All colors I have tried make the browser look really ugly... :P
However if you want I can tell you how to modify the browser on your own to include stripes :)

Use this code on a custom button:

repeat_stop 'rsi_CollapseFolders' & browser_window 'folders' & browser_scroll 'bottom' & param_equal get_browsed_folder_tab 0 ? set '$BRPreviousLevel' 0 & repeat_start_instant 'rsi_CollapseFolders' 100ms & browser_scroll -1 & param_equal get_browsed_folder_tab 0 ? var_equal '$BRPreviousLevel' 0 ? browser_scroll 'top' ? repeat_stop 'rsi_CollapseFolders' : nothing : browser_folder & set '$BRPreviousLevel' 0 & browser_scroll 'top' ? repeat_stop 'rsi_CollapseFolders' : nothing : get_browsed_folder_tab & set '$BRPreviousLevel' & browser_scroll 'top' ? repeat_stop 'rsi_CollapseFolders' : nothing : set '$BRPreviousLevel' 1 & repeat_start_instant 'rsi_CollapseFolders' 100ms & browser_scroll -1 & param_equal get_browsed_folder_tab 0 ? var_equal '$BRPreviousLevel' 0 ? browser_scroll 'top' ? repeat_stop 'rsi_CollapseFolders' : nothing : browser_folder & set '$BRPreviousLevel' 0 & browser_scroll 'top' ? repeat_stop 'rsi_CollapseFolders' : nothing : get_browsed_folder_tab & set '$BRPreviousLevel' & browser_scroll 'top' ? repeat_stop 'rsi_CollapseFolders' : nothing

1. Yes I meant masterDECK. wrong terminology. my bad ;-) Still it would be great to have a permanent visual indicator showing what mode it is on. (it is done quite well in the Fruit skin: permanent indicator showing AUTO or SELECTED and which one is masterdeck is shown quite clearly. Yours is a bit more subtle

2. Would be cool

3. I think it is fine the way it is right now. Good contrast. Forget about the stripes I think ;-)

Super! OMG been needing this for ages. Maybe they can implement it in the browser itself. Now you see it scanning upward, which is fine, but an instantaneous collapse would be great too as a standard browser feature to tidy things up to an initial clean staten. Thanks though for this one.. Man you know your mapping!

Maybe I didn't look good enough, but I used the skin with the XDJ700's and activated "Quantize" on the left player / left deck.

The following 2 gig's, I used my DDJ-SZ and my left deck still has Quantize activated? How to turn Quantize on/off in this skin?

Still having this problem.. Keep forgetting to turn off Quantize when using XDJ700's...

And item no:2

I wanted to use the "BROWSER TWEAKS [SKIN TOOL]" (with Silversleek 3) but when I only choose "browser in a floating window" the skin can not be loaded.. I did save this with another name.

Hi Phantom DJ
Great job your skin! I started to use it on my VDJ 8.2 and DDJ-SX…
If I can ask a small issue I found …
I tried to set the parameter option “ShowHorizontalSideList” to YES, because I would like to see the side list horizontally, but it does not seems to work.
For your info, I found the same problem also on the default skin.
So I’m not sure if it’s a VDJ bug or a skin problem…

I search on the forum but did not find any useful inf.
any suggestion will be very appreciated
Thanks in advance for your help
DJ Enry

You need to restart VDJ if you change the sidelist setting. It doesn't work straight away.

... Respect ... the skin rocks ...
...I have a question just out of curiosity ... what exactly is the Audio % number shown on the help pop up of the CPU meter ?

It shows the CPU usage of the audio engine

Hi PhantomDeejay,
I like to skin. I need help, may I know how to change the browser text to default type (original skin text white color). I know how to do simple edit on xml but I don't know which command lines. I did changed the font to Arial.
