Optimizing your system performance

Many MIDI Rules users (including me) have/had troubles with system freezes and MIDI crashes of the BCD2000 while using MIDI Rules and Traktor. Both issues have to do with real-time performance of your system (OS, hardware, peripheral devices, applications, etc.). One bottleneck component is enough to slow down the whole system.
Therefore optimizing the system performance has to cover all involved components. Windows XP users should take a look at the Windows XP Optimization Guide. A lot of tips can also be found in the NI forum. If you know additional tweaks/tips, please comment.

BCD2000/Traktor3 mapping now with cue feature inspired by CDJ-1000 MK3

I released a new BCD2000/Traktor3 mapping (2007-02-05) with a totally reprogrammed cue behavior inspired by the Pioneer CDJ-1000 MK3. Watch this demo video to figure out what I mean (pressing cue while deck is paused). (Flashing LEDs are supported with the next MIDI Rules prototype release.)
On the other hand, if you press cue while deck is playing, the “needle” jumps back to cue point and keeps playing (cue/play). If you now press the play button while still holding down the cue button, it jumps back again to the cue point and pause the deck (cue/pause).

Formelly, this is the new cue related mapping:

BCD2000 Traktor
CUE pressed cue/play
CUE released (CUE has been pressed while deck was paused) cue/pause
CUE released (CUE has been pressed while deck was playing) Keep playing
PLAY/PAUSE (CUE is not pressed) Play/Pause
PLAY/PAUSE (CUE is pressed while playing deck was paused) Keep playing
PLAY/PAUSE (CUE is pressed while playing deck was playing) cue/pause

Currently, I only integrate this feature in the Traktor3 mapping. I will see, if it’s also possible for Traktor2.

I never used a CDJ-1000, so if you have any suggestions, please comment.

BCD3000: support for Windows and Mac OS X + incl. Traktor 3 LE

The next generation of BCD2000, Behringer’s BCD3000, will support Windows as well as Mac OS X! Just like the BCD2000, Behringer’s newest MIDI Controller comes with a 4 channel audio interface and looks like a BCD2ooo with white painted controllers, but includes Traktor 3 LE. (I must think of Hercules DJ console and the light version of Traktor 2.5 + Bye Bye B-DJ)

Behringer BCD3000

The BCD3000 should be available on the 2nd quarter of 2007 (which must be the 4th quarter of 2008 in Behringer’s calculation of times 😉

BCD2000 + Traktor + MIDI Rules + Mac OS X

Mac OS X Tiger 10.4When I started to with the first MIDI Rules Prototype I had already in my mind to support Windows and Mac (and also Linux). Until now the only solution build on MIDI Rules is to marriage the BCD2000 with Traktor (this was my initial motivation to create MIDI Rules). Because there was no BCD2000 driver for Mac, there was also no application for MIDI Rules on Mac. But now things getting faster:

A smart guy evinyatar build a BCD2000 MIDI driver for Mac (with now from Behringer I guess).

And that’s not all: He also created a .dmg file of MIDI Rules (build up on MIDI Rules Prototype 2006-12-25). that you can easly use on your Mac. His post about BCD2000, Traktor, MIDI Rules on Mac OS X tells you how to setup the system. Different from Java for Windows, the MacOS X version by Apple doesn’t come with MIDI support. You have to install a third party library. You will also need at least MacOS X 10.4 because Java 1.5 is required for MIDI Rules (as far as I know there’s no Java > 1.4.x for MacOS X 10.3).

Unfortunately, there’s still now BCD2000 audio driver for Mac.

10 points for Enviyatar! (Btw.: It seems that we share the same first name…)
