Is having a DDJ-XP1 enough to be able to use Serato DJ?
No, a separate DJ mixer (e.g., DJM-S9) or DJ controller (e.g., DDJ-SX2) for which the Serato DJ software can be authenticated is required. Furthermore, you need to perform MIDI mapping for this unit yourself.
Does the DDJ-XP1 use an AC adapter?
No, there is no need for an AC adapter.
This unit is only supported on USB bus power.
Are the performance pads’ functions the same as on the DJM-S9?
The default pad modes of DDJ-XP1 and DJM-S9 are as follows.
[HOT CUE] [PAD FX 1] [BEAT JUMP] [SAMPLER]
[KEYBOARD] [PAD FX 2] [BEAT LOOP] [KEYSHIFT]
[HOT CUE] [PAD FX 1] [SLICER] [SAMPLER]
[BEAT JUMP] [PAD FX 2] [SLICER LOOP] [SAMPLER ROLL]
With DDJ-XP1, you can customize the pad modes in Pad Editor. For details, refer to the Pad Editor Operation Guide of the rekordbox product site.
Can DJ software other than rekordbox dj be used?
This unit is designed so that it can be used as a general purpose MIDI controller.
Do the MIDI connection specifications support DIN terminals?
No. MIDI signals are input and output through the USB port.
Does the DDJ-XP1 support restarting from the computer's standby and sleep modes?
Operation is not guaranteed when the computer has been restarted from the standby or sleep mode.
Can 16 HOT CUE points be handled also in the EXPORT MODE of rekordbox?
In PERFORMANCE MODE, the number of HOT CUE points that can be set for each track has been expanded to the 16 points A to P from rekordbox 5.0.
In EXPORT MODE, the number is still the 8 points A to H. Therefore, in the case of the HOT CUE points I to P set in PERFORMANCE MODE, they cannot be handled in EXPORT MODE, and also cannot be exported as data to external devices like CDJ or XDJ.
When should I use the [INT] button?
Use it as an emergency workaround measure in the event that playback in the REL mode or ABS mode cannot be continued due to some kind of accident during a performance using rekordbox dvs. In such a case, playback without using signals from a control CD or vinyl will be possible.
MASTER TEMPO sometimes turns on automatically?
MASTER TEMPO will turn on automatically for a performance with the pad mode in the KEYBOARD mode or when the key of the track is changed in the key shift mode.
What is KEYBOARD mode?
It enables a performance with a pitch assigned for a hot cue. A pitch can be assigned to each pad to enable a melody to be played using the pads just like a keyboard.
