Has anyone purchased the Denon MC4000? using djay pro.
Thinking of purchasing one..... Just wanted to know if it would plug straight in and work, or do i have to mess about by mapping it.

It's not been released yet so no one has one.

Adrian, this would be the appropriate time to let us know whether or not there are any plans to natively support the MC4000.

Be careful, there are NO on/off switches for the mics on this controller. Denon must have forgotten them.

TERRIBLE.

Don't you just need to turn the volume down?

Sure, if you want to have to reset your levels every time you use the mic.

Not too many pro controllers that don't have an on/off for microphones.

I hear you. For me this isn't a big deal because that's how use mixers at clubs anyway. I turn the mic channel on, figure out the mic volume knob position with a quick "check, 1, 2" then leave the mic on and use the mic volume knob when I want to talk. This comes from my experience of finding so many buttons completely worn out in club mixers.

And now you support the MC4000 so that was awesome of you to give us a head's up before, not.

I've got an MC4000. It's a great controller & USB class compliant...so pretty please, could you add it to iOS djay app supported hardware?

In the meantime, could a friendly Mac user upload the djay pro mapping for me to 'borrow' for djay on my iPad please?

I am fairly certain that this is natively mapped now.

Yes, just checked and it is supported. Plug and play!

You can find all supported controllers right here:

Lukas, I have commented below this comment about issues with library controls and soundcard issues with DJay Pro ( windows 10). My comments were 6 months ago. Can I get an update on if these issues are being addressed? Thank you

Yo, djpro sucks. I got back to virtual dj after practising djpro. Download your music from Tidal (flac files) or Spotify with Arhame and mix the tracks in for example Virtual dj8. I use thils and works perfectly.good luck.

Yep, natively supported for Mac...but as I mentioned, I'm using an iPad & djay 2. Unless when on the page where it lists support for Mac it means both Mac & iOS, but I doubt it.

I am having issues with the library controls on my MC4000 scrolling through my library. I have even tried to map it with no success. Any help would be great.

It's a shame.
Well, i now buy the mc6000 (not mk2) cause that one will work properly with windows 10 and djay pro. A friend of mine has the 6000 and can use it without probs.

I also have library issues and other issues like: the cue buttons for the headphone don't work. I can't switch between the two decks on my headphone, do not have sound in my headphone now (pre-cue-ing). And ''seek forward and ''seek backward' with shift + pitch up or down doesn't work.
Maybe there will be more issues.
I'm geting tired of it, first i had a Hercules Rmx2 which should be supported, but had also problems with this controller and Djaypro.
That's why i bought the Denon mc4000 and now i still got problems.
Using Windows 10 x64.

They advertise that the controllers are supported but why do i have problems with two different controllers...

I just purchased Algorythm DJ today for the same reason. I would like someone to map the cue headphone monitor appropriately... At the very least the same support as on Mac for the MC4000.

Heads up to those having the Library issue. Uninstall the Denon drivers completely. Restart computer and plug in unit without loading drivers then turn on software. This worked for me. There is nothing wrong with the mapping. The mapping problem went away when Denon drivers are uninstalled.

Thats what I ended up doing though without the drivers you have no way of controlling latency settings for the MC4000 causing crackeling and popping sounds to occur when the latency is set too low.

Same here. from what I understand Windows 10 has the drivers imbedded somewhere. I wonder if there is a way to access/tweak those drivers?

the denon mc4000 does not work reliably with djay pro 1 or 2 algorithm know of this problem. you will be embarrassed if you use it in a live environment take it from someone who it's happened to twice so I switched to Serato works perfectly.

To Algoriddim staff, have the problems which Mr 501 mentioned 4 months ago been fixed. I am thinking of bying on mc4000. I am using Djay pro for mac.

Also I wonder: In your homepage you mention that that controller is nativeley supported by Djay pro 2 for mac. But I have Djay pro for mac. Does it work directly
out of the box here aswell?

Can I buy that without hesitation? I don't want to have problem in live-enviroment of course. Would be embarassing. . Any other users here, who have that combination with Mc4000 with Djay pro for mac.

This problem has not been fixed nor do I think it will ever be fixed it has been a problem since djay pro 1 they just don’t care. Works fine with serto no issues but if you use djay pro 2 it will embarrass you for sure trust me I know first hand

I have not heard of anyone having issues with DJay on a Mac. Mac has supported this format for years. The problem I had with DJAY Pro was related to Windows and it was more a driver issue than anything. ( I gave my solution above). Windows support for Algoriddim is a very new thing, so I am not quite as surprised by my issue.
One of my biggest attractions to DJAY was the ability to use Spotify in the software, but because of the lack of support from Algoriddim I elected to use my money to get into a record pool and stay with Serato.
BTW the MC4000 is an incredibly robust compact unit. Being able to find a unit this size, built this well with dual mics and XLR out at this price point is unheard of. With the right software my MC4000 has been issue free.
Also the MC4000 works well with Traktor as well.
Once I discovered that you had to remove the Serato drivers and reload DJAY, my mapping problems went away.( this is not the best option if you are moving back and forth between programs as the driver needs to be reloaded every time you use Serato)
There is not really a document anywhere that gives a layout to how DJAY is mapped on the MC4000. I think if DJAY would do this there would be better success on this setup for Denon and DJAY imo.

Is anyone STILL having issues with the MC4000 whilst using djay Pro for Windows 10?

I've been using it for a month now and the only issue happened one night the audio would slow down and sound crackling. I just restarted the controller and left the PC and software running and that fixed it in less than a minute. I'm not sure if I would recommend it yet for reliability, but I haven't been able to recreate the problem so...

Try doing two things at once and leave the cross fader in the middle keep cueing on one deck whilst the other is playing and adjust eq or filter etc that seem to make it go wrong

Hi guys,

The MC4000 is natively supported by djay Pro 2 for Mac and djay Pro for Windows.

Any issues, problems, and feedback you have encountered with the controller and our software feel free to share via support@algoriddim.com.

Thank you in advance.

Cheers,Lukas E.

The mapping is not working properly... I have dj pro 2 & MacBook pro & new denon mc 4000. For example, when you turn the mixing button on your headphones it causes problems and when you quickly lower the volume buttons it interrupts.
