BEATLOOP (LOOP & HOTCUE)
Hold SHIFT down and then press the BEATJUMP mode button to set the PADs to BeatLoop mode and automatically load the LOOP+HC page in the Pads area of the VirtualDJ GUI.
In this mode the upper Pads 1 to 8 trigger an Auto Loop of a different size in beats, depending on the selected page. There are 6 different pages available with sizes starting from 1/32 up to 128 beats.
Use the PAGE buttons to select the previous/next page with the desired Loop sizes
Hold SHIFT and then use the PAGE buttons to change the behavior of the Loop pads, by selecting the On/Off (toggle), Hold (momentary – while pad is pressed) or the Roll mode (track will resume to the position it would have been once the pad is released)
the 8 lower Pads (9 to 16) assign a Hot Cue Point (1 to 8) or jump the track to that Hot Cue Point (if assigned).
When a Hot Cue Button is unlit, you can assign a Hot Cue Point by pressing it at the desired point in your track. Once it is assigned, the Hot Cue Button will light on.
The color of the Pad depends on the setting nonColoredPOI or the assigned color from the POI Editor
Hold SHIFT and then press a pad 9 to 6 to delete its assigned Hot Cue Point 1 to 8.
* By default the VirtualDJ GUI will show Pads 1 to 8. Hold SHIFT and then press the BEATJUMP mode button to toggle between the Pads 1-8 and Pads 9-16 views. Note that the Pads 9-16 view on the GUI will only be available when the Pioneer DDJ-XP1 is connected.
