Djay Ddj400

    39 - Comments

I just bought a DDJ 400. When i connect it to Djay PRO software everything works perfectly. However if i open Rekordbox Performance it says DDJ400 connected when i plug it in my Macbook (2013 Retina) but i cant do anything with it. Not a single button works but it does show up in midi devices.

Update Jan 2019: Algoriddim DJ Pro 2 now supports DDJ-400 natively so we no don't need our own mapping now (if you're still on DJ Pro 1 then you may find this mapping helpful)
  1. It’s official, Pioneer DJ‘s DDJ-400 controller is now compatible with Algoriddim’s djay app for iOS and djay Pro for PC/Mac. This compatibility update now allows the control to link to Spotify Premium within djay allowing users to access millions of songs for their DJ sets instantly.

(incomplete) beginnings of mapping for Dj Pro for Pioneer DDJ-400

I've not managed to get (all of) the LEDs to work as yet but the mixer, cross fader, play and cue buttons and cue points 1-4 are done and jog wheels are working (although I'm not convinced I have speeds correct on the jog wheels)
Would anyone be interested in collaborating on this to get it finished (I think we'll be waiting a LONG time for Algoriddim to do it!).
Mappings are just xml files aren't they? so we could probably do some controls / aspects each and then merge the files (I can help with the merge).
Any takers?


Pioneer DJ just announced that its two-channel DDJ-400 controller is now compatible with djay Pro for Mac / PC, which expands the controller’s software compatibility from Rekordbox DJ, Virtual DJ and djay for iOS, and that also means you can now spin using Spotify streaming if you’ve got a Spotify Premium account. The company has also released the unit in silver to give users a second choice of colour.

The DDJ-400 is an excellent entry level controller for those wanting to get into digital DJing but want a layout and controls that are similar to a CDJ/DJM set-up. Granted, it doesn’t have as many bells and whistles as its bigger siblings (DDJ-1000, DDJ-800) but you do get a full set of performance pads, touch-capacitive jogs and even Beat FX controls that mimic some of the workflow needed to operate a DJM mixer.
