[SOLVED] cdj 350 with virtual dj

Giorgos Christou
asked this on November 23, 2011 03:21

Hi. I am trying to set my cdj's 350 to work with the virtual dj 7.0.5 but i have a problem.Every half a minute the sound from one of the 2 decks stops playing but on the cdj' and virtual dj it shows that the song is playing but no sound. I have uptated to the latest firmware driver and vdj but still have the problem. Do you know what can cause this?  My other choice is traktor but the only bad thing is that there is no display on the screen of the cdj and the buttons do not light up. Is there a new mapping file that can fix this?

this is the same on traktor, when i first started using it, my sound cut out all the time, it turned out just to be the latency buffer size, i have no idea where in VDJ it is but have a look in the settings and increase the size of the buffer

If you change buffer to 512 from asio properties, the problem will stop.

I don't use asio card on vdj 7.0.5. There is a "pioneer cdj 350 -1" & "pioneer cdj 350 -2" selection, or something like that. I do not have my laptop now   to see it.

I'm  a similar problem, except that the signal stops me half an hour, using vdj 7.
Sometimes when out of midi, get the cd and when I get on midi channels back reverses players and channel of mixer.
Sometimes I get both players on a single channel of the mixer.

I am wrong in setting or?
Can find a tutorial somewhere?

go to "mapping" and delete the "eject" control. When you eject the cd it refreshes the cd players and reverses the players.

CORRECTIO:

a) SETTING -> "MAPPERS" and delete the action of  Eject key 

b) Sound setup INPUTS: None

                              OUTPUTS: EXTERNAL MIXER - Deck 1 : First card / Deck 2 : Second card

                              SOUND CARD: 2 CARDS +........    -  & pioneer cdj 350 -1" & "pioneer cdj 350 -2 SELECTION

Configure the Multi Player’s MIDI channels.
1 Press and hold the [DISPLAY (UTILITY)] button for 1 second or longer to switch to UTILITY mode.
2 Turn the rotary selector and select [MIDI CH]. Press the rotary selector to choose your selection.
3 Turn the rotary selector and select a MIDI channel (1–4). Press the rotary selector to choose your
selection.
The initial configuration of the MIDI mapping file will map the MIDI channels to corresponding
TRAKTOR PRO decks as shown in the following table.
CDJ-350 MIDI channel TRAKTOR PRO deck
MIDI CH 1 Deck A
MIDI CH 2 Deck B
MIDI CH 3 Deck C
MIDI CH 4 Deck D
The MIDI channel for the multi-player is set to CH 1 (Channel 1) by factory settings. Following the
mappings in the table above, set each CDJ-350 MIDI channel you wish to use to one of the channels
between CH 1 and CH 4.
4 Press the rotary selector again to save the changes to the MIDI channel configuration.
Press the [DISPLAY (UTILITY)] button to exit UTILITY mode.

@dammika > Is the Jog wheel physically producing a rough noise, or do you mean when you move the jog wheel, the audio distorts and sounds rough?

@dammika > It would be appreciated if you could combine all the things you would like to say in 1 comment before posting please. :)

It sounds like the jog has come out of alignment, sometimes it is just a matter of trying to lift the jog wheel (not removing it) and manoeuvring it back into place. This was possible with the CDJ-400, but not exactly sure if it can be done with the CDJ-350.

If you're unable to get back in alignment, you should contact Tech Support for your region and they can point you to the nearest Authorized Pioneer Repair Centre for your region. Links and info are on the right side of this page.

Perhaps you might be able to take/ship it back to the place of purchase, and see if they will replace it for you.

You can copy cue points and loops from rekord box, but only with the 900, and 2000's not with the 350's

@Andjelo > When you start VDJ, it should ask you which deck you want the player to control; are you saying that you have independent control over each virtual deck until you press the eject button?

Is the buzzing in the audio?  It could be your laptop creating a ground-loop; you may find that disconnecting the power cord makes the buzz disappear; if you're on a PC, there are also a couple of other things you can check to do with the APCI power management.

@Dammika > If there is an issue with your CDJ350, we would advise you to return to where you bought it. You can let them know you would like to upgrade it to an 850 but they are under no obligation to do so. Therefore, your best bet would be to get it fixed, sell it and then buy the 850.

Hi all,

I'm new to the forum so hello everybody, like everybody else (it seems!) I have a issue with the 350s, I don't have the drop out problem in the threads above - perhaps that's because I switch frequently from disc to PC, my issue is this: when I switch from PC to USB on the 350 everything cuts out! I have named the players 1 & 2 and use in the same lap top port every time (Laptop is HP Windows 7 loads of memory used for music only), The USB to disc changeover works, just PC to USB, Ideas anyone?

Also are the CDJ 350s compatible with PCDJ VJ? If they are how do I set that up?

One more thing it all runs through a DJM 350 mixer.

@Jon > Welcome to the forums. Please, in future, if you are having issues open a new thread as we could miss problems tagged on to other threads,

What you describe - switching from PC to USB - is normal. The soundcard needs to cut out the signal from the PC. Unfortunately, these is no other way around this.

If PCDJ VJ is MIDI compatible (which it is) then you should be able to play away fine. You will need to map the functions to the software as you see fit. Perhaps VirtualDJ may be a better fit for you however?

Hi Gavin,

Thanks for that, if the USB is playing on deck 1 and I select PC on deck 2 surely this should not happen?

I am using a licensed copy of VDJ 7, just wondered if anyone knew if it was compatible with PCDJ VJ

Going from USB to PC should be ok I believe - going from PC to USB may cause issues though.

Hello I am having problem with the connection of cdjs350 with VirtualDJ. I got to get it working normally, but suddenly one of the decks not playing, I hung up and called again and now I carry on a track playing on deck while other like a clone. I can not load another track on the other deck. I've tried to change the configuration of the display utility MIDI channel one channel for each deck but not solved, changed the sound card configuration in every way and not solved. Someone help me please. Sorry for bad English, I used the translator.
