Controller Plug-Ins

Controller Plug-Ins
DJ-1800 supports a range of hardware controllers and software applications via "plug-ins". Plug-ins act as extensions to DJ-1800, containing all of the information DJ-1800 needs to support a controller or application.

DJ-1800 currently supports the following controllers and software applications:

Plug-ins and documentation for these controllers and applications can be downloaded using the links below.

Please note:
Many hardware controllers are labelled to match the DJ software included with the controller. As a result, the labels on the controls may not match the features of DJ-1800.

Because of this, some of the plug-ins below repurpose certain controls for other purposes. For example, DJ-1800 does not have a "scratch" feature, so a scratch wheel might be used to control DJ-1800's "search" wheel instead.

We would strongly recommend that you download the plug-in and documentation before purchasing a particular controller, to find out how that controller works when used with DJ-1800. Full documentation (in PDF format) is included in each of the plug-in ZIP files found below.

For instructions on creating your own plug-ins, please download the DJ-1800 Plug-In API, which contains documentation, plug-in templates and instructions for creating your own plug-ins. The Plug-In API enables you to create plug-ins for any MIDI-compliant device or HID (Human Input Device)-compliant device, as well as creating plug-ins for devices with their own custom drivers. You can also use the Plug-In API to create a custom keyboard plug-in to define your own keyboard mapping.

Frontier Design TranzPort
Visit the Frontier Design TranzPort web site The Frontier Design TranzPort is a wireless DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) MIDI controller. Unlike most MIDI controllers, it uses high-frequency RF technology, so the controller doesn’t have to be physically connected to your computer. As a DJ, this enables you to wander away from your DJ laptop (within wireless range), whilst still being able to control your mix.

The TranzPort has 19 MIDI buttons, some of which have LEDs to indicate their status. It also features a jog wheel for precise position finding. Additionally, the TranzPort has a 40-character LCD display for showing the current song, position and controller settings.
