I have just bought a Reloop Digital Jockey 2 Master Edition and installed the great Mixxx software, just to find out that this controller is not working and actually the Mixxx program is crashing when I just press one of the play buttons, with segmentation fault errors.
I have carefully read the FAQ, the Troubleshooting sections and tried all what was suggested there, without success. I have searched the forum for any entry about the Reloop Digital Jockey 2 “Master” Edition, but could only find references to the “Interface” and “Controller” editions. The mapping that is included in the program would seem to be precisely for those versions. When I bought this device, I asked the guy in the store what would be the difference between the “Controller” and the “Master” editions, and since the guy said that the differences were not relevant for the driver – “they use the same ASIO drivers” he said --, it would seem reasonable to assume that mapping would not be that different, although I am using Linux.
The programs breaks ugly: “PortMidi: `Buffer overflow’”, “QMutex: cv destroy failure” and finally “Segmentation fault” after many “Requested control does not exist” and ControlObject::getControl returning NULL" debug messages. Thus, I have been hesitant in consider that the problem is just that the mapping I am using (Reloop Digital Jockey 2) is completely wrong.
That’s why I joined this forum! I wonder if anybody could confirm that these are the kind of symptoms one get when using the wrong mapping. If that is the case, and if no one else has done it yet, then I am willing to try my best to learn how to create my own mapping for this device. I just do not want to start a project like that if that does not make sense at all.
[Note 1: I have installed the Traktor program in Windows and tested my new device and it works there, but I do not like Windows, much less for this kind of applications, where Windows could at any time sabotage my session with some stupid automatic update, antivirus garbage, etc.]
[Note 2: The Mixxx program looks much better than the Traktor thing anyway, so I look forward to start using Mixxx in my Linux box]
Here is my setup:
Operating system: Linux Kubuntu Natty 11.04 64bit
CPU: AMD Phenom™ II X6 1100T; 3300MHz; 64bit
Motherboard: ASUS Crosshair V Formula
RAM: 8GiB (2x DIMM DDR3 Synchronous 1333MHz)
VGA controller: nVidia GeForce GT 440 - using the nVidia binary propietary driver, current version: 280.13-0ubuntu6.1
Mixxx: v1.10.1 installed from the Mixxx ppa
Reloop Digital Jockey 2 Master Edition
Thanks a lot in advance !
