Click on the "Use Soundcard" button if your speakers are connected to the Master Output of the DDJ-SR2

Click to OK

MIDI Operation

The unit should be visible in the CONTROLLERS tab of Config and the “factory default” available/selected from the Mappings drop-down list. The factory default Mapping offers the functions described in this Manual, however those can be adjusted to your needs via VDJ Script actions.
