Discussion about keyLoopUp

Key Loop Up, when turned on does nothing until you call a loop externally, then once a loop it will raise the key, fx off or loop off the key returns to whatever it was to start with.

If used while the other key loop fx is on the key will not reset until the second fx is switched off. [loop off still works]

I recommend using this with the loop out fx, and with slip mode on

This plugin is for Pro Licence holders only and has no date for a release for all users.
If a mac xcode user would like to port this to mac, send me a pm, or mac users, somehow get a mac to me and I'll write it for macs too

In the end it makes dummies like me enjoying VDJ more.

Keep up the good work.

hey there...im using this plugin the following script
"deck 1 slip momentarily & deck 1 effect_active "KeyLoopUp" momentarily & deck 1 loop 0.5 momentarily".
which i use as a transition..especially on a vocal...and i just added the slip part to do cool tricks etc...
it works fine..but im just having one problem with the volume levels as the key goes up...
the plugin is written with in a way to change the key on every specific loop count...
i was wondering if it were possible to add a volume reduction option(fade out if u like) in the same steps as the key goes up...
because as the key goes up..so does the actual volume of the deck..i just want it to be normalized to match the volume/gain as the original sound

I won't be doing that,
your best option would be to call loop out fx while_pressed as well as the script you already use to get a fade.

Does it? Or are you just imagining it does? Can you see an increase on the meters?

real or not, it is perceived.
*and it is real*

Yes the increase reflects in the meters

for anyone who may be interested..i sorted it as locodog suggested using the loop out efx...this should be ideally triggered 4 beats before a transition start into a new song.
here is my final script
deck 1 slip momentarily & deck 1 effect_active "KeyLoopUp" momentarily & deck 1 loop 0.5 momentarily & effect_active "Loop Out" momentarily & effect_slider "Loop Out" 2 35% & effect_slider "Loop Out" 1 15% momentarily & effect_slider "Loop Out" 4 75% momentarily & effect_button "Loop Out" 1 off momentarily
