CDJ-2000nexus support

Added Pioneer CDJ-2000nexus support. The CDJ-2000nexus can now be connected directly to the computer and control Scratch Live without control CDs.

When connected, the CDJ-2000nexus also has additional functionality : Library control, hot cues and loops.

NOTE : The Beat Sync and Slip buttons on the CDJ-2000nexus are not assigned and are therefore MIDI mappable to functions in Scratch Live.

MIDI Output Lighting

MIDI mapping Scratch Live on/off controls to a MIDI controller will now illuminate the LEDs, reflecting the on/off state of the Scratch Live function. For all GUI buttons that are non-momentary (such as play/pause), MIDI Output Lighting will be automatically added to the AUTO_SAVE.xml file.

To disable MIDI output lighting for a MIDI mapped function, press L during the mapping process. You can disable MIDI Output Lighting outright by unchecking the option in the MIDI tab of the Setup screen.

Note: Only MIDI Controllers that use MIDI note on/off messages to control lighting will support this feature.
