@SR > What version does Itch tell you the firmware is when you go to the settings?
DDJ-S1 with VDJ help
I already posted this on VDJ's forums, but I figured I would post it here as well, just in case someone has encountered this before.
OK purchased a DDJ-S1 last night, hooked it up to my MBP, and it does not show in the mappers. Unpluged the USB with VDJ open and back in, rescanned, and nothing. The S1 shows in the sound config without issue, and works. I reset the controller, and the Mac in about 20 different times in different orders, again still does not show. Checked show all devices, manually selected the S1, and it does not react to anything. I though well possibly it is a defective controller, so I installed Itch, and it works like a champion.
Here is what I can tell you. If I select simple MIDI device, and click learn, it does pick up the buttons, so I know it is seeing the device. The jogs light up on the four corners.
Here is what I am running..
Early 2011 MBP 15" (I have tried both my 2.0GHz and 2.4GHz models)
VDJ 7.0.5 Mac edition
The only thing I can think is maybe I received a newer model of the S1 which has a different firmware or maybe they changed the sysexid for some reason? Is there a way to get the sysexid on a Mac, and is there a way to see what the mapper that is built in to VDJ 7.0.5 is looking for on the sysexid?

Yay, Pulse my hero....I'll fire it up in the morning and let you know. I didn't think you loved me anymore lol.....
It says Firmware: "Up To Date"
I found out if I change the name of the midi device in Mac to "DDJ-S1 MIDI" then VDJ see's the device, but then Itch will no longer see it, for Itch to see it, I have to name it "PIONEER DDJ-S1"
Now although I got VDJ to recognize the S1, I found the following problems, which I reported on VDJ's forums, but no one has helped with so far....
"A couple of issues. I seem to have the scratch issue. It seems to be with the jog resolution. All LED's on the Left side are wacky. The jog's led's jump all over the place. The track length LED above the touchstrip doesn't light up unless it you use the touchstrip to skip into the track, it doesn't follow along with the length of the track. The PFL LED's for channel 1, just the first light (on bottom) lights up but doesn't seem to move. Even with no track loaded it just lights the bottom LED."
I also posted
"So does anyone have any ideas about the LED's freaking out. The scratching is less important to me, but if you know the fix for that, that would be great as well. I am 99% sure it's not a latency issue, it definately seems like a jog resolution issue. For example I have to turn the jog wheel 4 full times for it to actually equal one revolution in the track."
Yeah, you need to change it to "DDJ-S1 MIDI" for VDJ to pick it up, but provided you're using 7.0.x, you should have it detected. Chris should be able to help you out on the VDJ forums, he's a champ!
