Tema: Will any midi controller work on VDJ?
nowavePRO InfinityMember since 2015
I’m looking at additional controllers to have in my set up (currently a Launchpad and Traktor Z1) but wondering if I can simply plug in any midi controller and map it myself?
Leading example I’m looking at is the Donner Starrypad midi controller on Amazon

Any advice is welcomed thank you

If it's not officially supported by VDJ you will have to create a definition file as well which can be complex.

Best to stick with controllers from this list:

Ah ok that’s a shame but good to know thank you for replying to me

You don't have to create a definition file. Generally speaking you can easily map button on/off and fader/knob movement with very little effort.

Definition files come into play once you start going beyond that.

The VDJ staff are usually happy to help with mapping a non-native controller too.

That's true but for very basic use only as you have stated. To get the most out of the newer controllers a definition is still required.
