Topic: Ddj sx3
Got New controller but I can't add to my program

Inviato Wed 16 Jan 19 @ 9:59 pm
You only need to post once...

What do you mean by "can't add"? If you mean that VDJ is not recognising the SX3 when you plug it in, then you need to make sure you're running an up-to-date build.

I assume that when you say "my program" you mean Virtual DJ.

GroovinDJ answered you already. Why did you repeat your question?

In any case make sure you have the latest version of VDJ as Groovin suggested. Then if it doesn’t work tell us what happens when you plug it in and run VDJ.

Make sure you have installed the necessary drivers from https://www.pioneerdj.com/en/support/software/DDJ-SX3
Click on the Pioneer DDJ-SX3 button in Audio tab of VirtualDJ to auto-create the default audio configuration as per the Audio Setup section of the manual http://www.virtualdj.com/manuals/hardware/pioneer/ddjsx3/setup.html
Make sure both speakers and Headphones are connected to the DDJ-SX3
Further info can be found in the manual http://www.virtualdj.com/manuals/hardware/pioneer/ddjsx3/index.html

Perhaps you are using an old Build of VirtualDJ, before DDJ-SX3 support was added ? Please check your Build number at the bottom-left edge of the VirtualDJ Settings window. It should be 4720 (current Public) or higher.
Connect your computer to Internet and accept the automatic update. If not automatically updating, install the latest from http://www.virtualdj.com/download/index.html

Simple questions for you to answer and be able to assist you further..

Q1. When you open VirtualDJ Settings window, then goto CONTROLLERS tab, do you see at the top-left side tree the Pioneer DDJ-SX3 (along with the keyboard) ?
Q2. In the same CONTROLLERS tab, when you click and select the DDJ-SX3 from the left side (if there), is the "factory default" Mapping available (and selected) from the right-top side list ?
If Yes to both the above, then the controller is properly detected as MIDI

Q3. In the AUDIO tab of VirtualDJ Settings, do you see the special button PIONEER DDJ-SX3 under CARD as shown in the manual page http://www.virtualdj.com/manuals/hardware/pioneer/ddjsx3/setup.html
If Yes, then click on that button (make it blue like shown in the manual and VirtualDJ will auto-create the default audio setup for you and u need just to APPLY.
If No, then most likely something went wrong with the installation of the drivers. Please try again and see if you get any error during that process. Also check if the sound card of the Pioneer DDJ-SX3 (WASAPI or ASIO) is available in the list offered when you click on the selected sound card in your current setup
BTW, even if the special button is not offered (for any reason), you can still manually create the proper audio setup, similar to what the manual shows. You need at least the Outputs (deck 1, deck 2, deck 3, deck 4, sampler, headphones) assigned to the Pioneer sound card. If you dont have this audio setup, the sound will not be routed properly. Keep also in mind that both speakers and headphones need to be connected to the DDJ-SX3.

Screenshots are welcomed

Your account stats show that last time you tried with VirtualDJ, you have set Latency to 0 !!
In most cases a value of 512 (or 256 if your computer is well-optimized) would be just fine.
Keep in mind that the latency is set from the USB Audio Interface Utility of the controller when you are using ASIO drivers (click on the ASIO button you will see in the VDJ Audio setup) or from the latency setting (from CDJ Settings->Options tab) if you use WASAPI or Mac Driver.
Regardless the latency value, you will need to spend some time and optimize your computer for best performance http://www.virtualdj.com/wiki/PC%20Optimize.html
