Original post follows:
These changes fix the jog wheel behavior with 1.11 for me–can someone else with a Spin confirm whether this works correctly with other firmware versions etc? Is there a cross platform or cross firmware compatibility issue with this mapping?
I just acquired a (fairly beat up) Vestax Spin, and am using it under Windows 7 and 8 (32 and x64, with both 32 and 64 bit executables). Maybe this is just my version of the firmware, but it behaved very strangely when using the “scratch” mode switch. The wheels were very laggy and after a scratch the track would just spin to a stop or lope along very slowly and unevenly. It’s hard to describe but it was definitely messed up.
Apparently this behavior is actually a side effect of the hack to prevent strange behavior when you “untouch” the wheel. Apparently Mixxx 1.11 no longer needs this hack; I removed it, and then the jog wheels work properly with no strange side effects.
In any case, I have uploaded the modified version of the scripts file. General change summary:
- Removed the scratch mode spindown hack
- Set ticks-per-rotation to 128, which seems correct (was very very sensistive at 300, maybe suitable for scratching?)
- added soft takeup init code that does not work for me.
