Building a new controller - default mapping suggestions

Hi there newbie here - but massive Mixxx fan!

I am building a new controller as an Android app. The intention is to make it a basic turntable emulator and appeal to people who like to like to manually beat-match. So it will have basic jog/scratch touch controls, very fine-grained pitch and nudge controls. Plus basic browsing, cue and loop buttons.

My question is what would be a good mapping starting point for this software controller? I was thinking to emulate a widely supported MIDI controller’s behaviour so that the app could work out of the box, and also with other DJ software. I was thinking to choose the Pioneer DDJSX.

Thanks for any suggestions.


I expect you’ll make more work for yourself this way. Creating a dedicated mapping will be easy if you also get to program the controller.
