Mapping arrows on keyboard


I was wondering how to map in Standard.kbd.cfg the arrow keys (left & right arrows). Can you help me?

Thank you,


The standard shortcuts are defined in a text file, and can be changed by the user.

Linux: /usr/share/mixxx/keyboard/Standard.kbd.cfg MacOS X: <Mixxx bundle>/keyboard/Standard.kbd.cfg Windows: <Mixxx directory>\keyboard\Standard.kbd.cfg
If you save your edited file as Custom.kbd.cfg at the corresponding path , Mixxx will use this file instead on re-launch.

Arrow keys are mapped with “Up”,“Down”,“Left”,“Right”


[Channel1] LoadSelectedTrack Left [Channel2] LoadSelectedTrack Right
This would load a selected track from the library in either Channel 1 (Left arrow) or Channel 2 (Right arrow)

Looks like there is a bug with Modifiers and arrow keys, e.g. if you want to use “Shift+Left” it might not work (at least it does not work for me on MacOS).

Thanks, this is exactly what I wanted to know.

FYI, Shift+Arrows doesn’t work for me either (Mixxx 1.9.0 & Mac OS 10.6).
Nice software by the way, can’t wait to see how it’s gonna evolve :slight_smile:

I concur, very helpful!
