How To: MIDI assign the SL 3 Aux Deck
This article explains how to assign the SL 3's AUX deck to MIDI controls, allowing you to get the most out of a 3rd deck while still using a traditional two turntable / CDJ setup.
First ensure that you have the 3rd or 'aux' deck enabled. To enable, go to the set up screen, click on the Plugins tab, and check the Enable SL 3 AUX deck plugin:
Switch back to the main screen, and change the screen mode to Stack Mode:
This will display the 3rd deck on screen so you can MIDI assign it's functions; Pitch control, Cuepoints, loops etc.
Assign MIDI functions as per normal, by clicking on the MIDI button:
Other functions that don't have 'buttons' on screen can also be assigned by clicking on the "Show MIDI Panel" button (e.g. load to deck, library scroll etc.)
Click on the AUX tab to assign these extra AUX deck functions to MIDI:
Once you have everything assigned, unclick the MIDI button, and away you go. If you wish, you can switch the view mode back to classic mode - the AUX deck MIDI assignments will still work behind the scenes.
