Denon DJ - X1800

CONTROLS





MIDI OPERATION


The Mixer section of the X1800 (Gain, Equalizer, Volume faders, Crossfader and Crossfader Assigns) is assigned with VirtualDJ mixer scripts, so their positions will be reflected to the skin of VirtualDJ. However, the audio mixing is performed from the X1800 itself, thus those controls from VirtualDJ will not alter the audio if changed from the skin (fake mixer mode).

The rest of the X1800 sections (Effects, Microphone, Headphones, Master/Booth etc) perform hardware operations are not assigned to any VirtualDJ script action, even though all of them send MIDI. If any of those elements is assigned using a custom mapping, keep in mind that their hardware operation will be still performed.

The operation of the Denon DJ X1800 is described in its official User Guide https://www.denondj.com/downloads

USB 1/2


The Denon DJ X1800 offers 2 USB ports at the top panel to connect to a computer and is equipped with 2 separate USB Audio interfaces, making the DJ changeover an easy task. In order the audio signal from a VirtualDJ deck to be routed to a X1800 Mixer Channel, just make sure it is set to the same USB (1 or 2) position from the top panel. When a computer is connected to USB 1 port, the mixer Channels that are set to USB 2 will be muted (and vice-versa)
