Forum: Wishes and new features

Features you would like to see in VirtualDJ
Topic: Sampler - Wishes & new features - Page: 11
Would love to add a script that would get the color of a sample group. Something like "get_sampler_group_color."

An easy beat grid snap when editing a loop in the sampler would be very helpful

Would like to see the ability to have a video sample that would automatically toggle the video ON when pressed and then back OFF at it's end. To me the whole purpose of a sampler is to immediately "play" a sample and a video sample that only automatically plays the audio is lacking. Could be a check box when in the editor as you can now select the audio and/or video. Thanks

As a new user to VDJ, I was a hard core Traktor user and sometimes Serato.

One thing I like a whole lot is the way Traktor has "Remix decks".



It acts like a play deck, you can adjust volume etc. ... on each remix channel and you can, like a regular deck, pre-listen and then up fader if you want to pull it in.

Some features I really love on that :

    You can have "one-shot" sounds sync (I haven't figured out how to do that in the sampler unless I record a full bar and then save it as such after)
    You have easy access to basics like Sync, Loop, One Shot etc. ...
    You can see the wave form (handy to see when you want to start it quick and eye ball if the phrase starts at the right place
    Easy to edit on the fly directly on the deck


What I don't like and where VDJ is coming on top

    You don't seize control of an entire deck since it seems to live in it's own world (unless you channel it to a deck)
    Have more flexibility on where the sound goes (great!)
    Using an AKAI APC Mini (or similar controller in conjunction) gives way more possibilities


The wish:

    Make the sampler an actual deck where all the standard controls of a normal deck are present by default (vol, eq, pre-listen, effect...)
    With items like a AKAI APC, get each volume fader to act like an actual volume fader for each channel of the sampler and the master of the sampler deck on the master volume fader of the APC (it would make pre-listen mixing a whole lot better)
    Have a one-shot sync option for those samples that actually have just one shot in the sound (like a single cymbal, or kick)

This has been requested many times (often by me!). It would be so much more versatile.

VDJ can use up to 99 decks, so in theory there are plenty of slots, and some folks have made skins using lots of mini decks. The flaw is that decks don't have all the functionality of sampler slots.

There's literally nothing the sampler can do that a deck can't, some stuff is tricky but very possible

I've actually eye'd up a remix decks project, I've got the mechanics for most of the key features worked out in my head, I just can't find the willing to make a skin, maybe if/when the pioneer v10 gets support we might see a default 6 deck skin and I might find some motivation

Yup, I agree. Just putting it back out there.

i haven’t understand sorry :(

I use the sampler in a mix of Video/Audio and Audio Only. Selecting a Video will only play the audio unless I enable the video which means I need to turn off video at the end to keep from overriding the video from the other application I am running. I suggest that VIDEO sample edit includes a button that would turn on video at the launch point of the video and turn it off at the end. If the video is already on at the time of launch then leave it on (do nothing). In short, selecting a video sample should immediately play the audio and Video.

I'm a new VDJ user, after using Serato for a week and realising that it doesn't support my workflow.

My workflow involves building up a collage of sound using multiple decks and 'loop rec' samples.

I like that the sample group visible on a deck can be changed, but I would prefer if I could show a different sample group per deck. Currently if I change the group visible on Deck A, the visible group also changes on Deck B/C/D.

I like that sample groups audio can be routed to the 'trigger deck', but I would prefer if triggering samples on Deck A and Deck B would result in sample audio output on Deck A and Deck B - not just in Deck B.

Thanks,
Dan

Bonjour à tous serait il possible de pouvoir ajouter des POI aux samples pour piloter les lumières?
Ok ça marche déjà super sur les cues.
Mais j'en ai besoin sur des samples. 3 actions son+ vidéo+ lumiéres.

Merci pour votre aide.

Hello everyone, would it be possible to add POIs to the samples to control the lights?
Ok it already works great on cues.
But I need it on samples. 3 sound + video + light actions.

Thanks for your help.
