[v1.1] Kane Quneo Mixxx Preset: For The Control-Hungry DJ

Postby wolfbiter » Thu Sep 20, 2012 11:20 am

Last updated: 2/11/13
I've written a preset to bring together the QuNeo and Mixxx.
If you have any issues or suggestions, I encourage you to report them here!

Live Demo: https://youtu.be/dpdWzb0PEWo

Get the preset: https://www.github.com/wolfbiter/kane-quneo-mixxx#kane-quneo-mixxx-preset

Intro Tutorial: https://youtu.be/dnWSqPFBHGk

Quick Overview:
    - Multiple Modes: Main DJ, Library, Cuing, and Visualizer
    - LED sequencers to beats of 16
    - Autoloop (reliable loop halving for rises)
    - Play/Pause Stutters (see note at bottom)
    - Forward/Backward Beat Jumping (1, 4, 8 or 16 beats)
    - Beat Jump Stutters
    - Loop Scheduling (1, 4, 8 or 16 beats now or on trigger)
    - Autojump (continuous beat jumping)
    - Visual Nudge (for precise beatgridding)
    - 16 Hotcues per deck with informational LEDs
    - Support for 32+ Hotcues (in progress)
    - Hotcue Stutters
    - Cue Place/Delete Undos/Redos (in progress)
    - Beatloop Rolls
    - Auto Rate Nudge (easily and unnoticeably nudge tempo over a period of time)
    - Turntable Rotaries for Scratching
    - Levels and Rate Sliders for each deck
    - JumpSync (toggle to automatically sync a deck after any jump)
    - Beat Counters
    - Cursors and Zooms for each deck
    - Master and Deck LED VuMeters
    - 4 Sampler Decks (in progress)
    - 4 Mixing Decks (wishlist)
    - Pitch Shifting for Harmonic Mixing (wishlist)
    - Full Bank of Effects (wishlist)
    - Documentation on how I utilize 16 cues

NOTE: Stuttering is when a button activates on release rather than on press: It's a treat that makes accurate timing significantly easier.

Refer to my github repository for comprehensive documentation on all of the controls.

9/29 Update:
Big changes in progress. After using the setup mentioned above for a while, I have adapted many buttons to suit many more purposes. The preset above is now obsolete, and I will update it very soon.

Brief list of new capabilities:
    -one-button support for 16 cues!
    -Jump 1,2,4,8 beats backwards or forwards
    -Visual nudge (makes beat-gridding SO MUCH nicer, no more clumsy mouse)
    -Loop 1,2,4,8 beats; double/half still possible, plus LEDs to show how many beats your active loop is
    -SCHEDULE loops of 1,2,4,8 beats on next jump (which includes jumping to hotcues OR using the jump button)
    -JumpSync: a toggle for each deck which, when enabled, automagically (via script) syncs this deck to the other on this deck's next nonconsecutive beat
    -New modes! regular DJ mode, Cuing mode, Song-select mode, and Sampling mode
    -Customizable LED sequencers for each deck which now robustly work down to the QUARTER note!
    -A button which will assert the status of all LEDs. This ensures the quneo's LEDs are consistent with mixxx, always subtly important and vital when switching modes.
    -start/stop recording, with the quneo's pretty red recording button

As a note, I feel like this version of the preset definitely has a steeper learning curve: I imagine this comes with a higher skill cap.

11/12 Update:

The 1.0 is officially released! The newest features include the above as well as:

    - every button (every corner of every pad) and every LED is mapped to useful functionality in order to maximize the dj's potential
    - demo and tutorial videos for beginners
    - complete documentation which can bring a new user from 0 to 60 in no time
    - auto nudge, to easily and unnoticeably change BPMs over a long period of time (useful for live mixing)
    - hotcue LEDs - different LED colors for hotcues that are coming up and hotcues which have passed
    - perfected jumping (it now jumps 100% on the beatgrid)
    - Visualizer mode!
    - now, all the LEDs pulse strongly to the beat (while still primarily encoding useful information)
    - master and deck VuMeters
    - LED beat counters to keep track of where you are in a track (helps immensely for lining up live transitions)

Re: [v1.0] Kane Quneo Mixxx Preset- LEDs that pulse to the b

Postby KinBlu » Tue Nov 13, 2012 6:03 pm

Hi! I really liked the look of your preset and I'd like to give it a try.
I followed your instructions
-copyed mixxx presets to midi folder
-update quneo presets
-setup midicontroll in mixxx and import KANE_Quneo

I'm then presented a hole slew of error messages saying
"the midi script function "KANE_QuNeo.deck1Cue1Activate" was not found in loaded scripts.

it then says the same error for every other function...

Any tips for me please?

Replied via email.

Documentation update in progress: it needs to reflect the fact that this script works only in mixxx v1.11, and provide links appropriate download links.

2/11/13 Update:

Glorious day, the Kane QuNeo Mixxx preset has officially reached v1.1! This version is largely bug fixes (the issues list is down to only 2 bugs and 0 criticals), but I'm happy to announce some shiny new features!

    - Autoloop (easily activate reliable loop halves for a rise with a single button press)
    - Play/Pause Stutters (see note at bottom)
    - Hotcue Stutters (only while the deck is playing)
    - Jump Stutters (also only while the deck is playing)
    - Autojump (keep the beat number pressed down while in jump mode and the deck is paused to continue jumping)
    - Beat numbers changed from {1,2,4,8} to {1,4,8,16} to better match DJ needs
    - Fixed Levels and Cursors to be more intuitive
    - Included documentation on how I utilize 16 cues

NOTE: Stuttering is when a button activates on release rather than on press: It's a treat that makes accurate timing significantly easier.

Oh and I almost forgot - can a mod please move this thread over the the new QuNeo presets forum?

Thanks!
