    My N4PY Pegasus Plus now has support for this behringer CMD Micro DJ Controller.  My support allows full user programmability so that each knob, slider, and button can be set to whatever you want.

    I know we can swap the items which are in the program from one place to another, but can we add and swap new things to the controler. Example if you are not a CW person the CWX 1,2,3 could be replaced with three transmit settings (SSB rag chew, SSB contest. Winmore digital). Just a thought.

    My N4PY Software allows you to configure the device so any button can do over 60 different functions.  And I am actively supporting this device to add more functions if you need them.

    The network health issue continues with the 2.0d version. There is a fix that required setting a network property (UDP Port?) so that the same port that SmartSDR uses is not also used for this app.

    In this topic https://community.flexradio.com/flexradio/topics/dropped-packets-when-client-connected-from-same-mac...

    The relevant comment I think is...

    "If you aren't going to use the UDP data, there is no reason to have a UDP listener.  But I would recommend moving the port the radio uses off of the default 4991 using the client udpport command so as not to confuse the SmartSDR packet count."

    My N4PY Pegasus Plus fully supports this device and has full user programmability so you can define any button or knob for over 60 different functions.  See www.n4py.com

    Dan, I concur fully. William had some problems with audio streaming.
    Hopefully he'll solve that :-)
    I also use my CMD micro, very useful for SSB and CW work...image

    Dear William,
    Do you have a list of Dj Midi controllers that we can use and program with your softwares?
    Thanks for your help,

    No, Giulio, you have to look it up in the community. But the CMD micro is the
    controller that works best. I use it regularly. 73, Alex - DH2ID

    It works great. I just purchased Williams Behringer and Flex 6300.  The Behringer works super and I use it all the time.  William is a sharp guy

    (13 Aug 2016; Saturday afternoon)

    (This 'thread' is so long that I am getting lost.)

    (I received my behringer controller this morning (the Postman left it at the door) and have gotten it to run although some of the controls have my confused.)


    Could someone please tell me :

    1.) Are there presently four releases for the behringer controller software ?

    2.) I tried to find a User Manual for the behringer controller but have not found one .... All I have is the 'Quick Start Guide' that came with the controller.

    3.) Where is there documentation that describes the programming language being used ? (Or is it MIDI ?)

    Unfortunately there is no manual for use with Flex 6000.  It is probably worth your while to go back to start of thread and see what transpired over time.  William Hemmingsen in what is called Programming IDE which i believe is a visual app language. The source code is still available I think but you will need to find links.  All is in the thread somewhere.

    Hello Bob;

    When I commented that I could not find a User Manual .... I mean just for the Behringer controller itself ... there are some places where comments indicate that there is such a manual but I cannot find it.

    I tried to work my way through this (amazingly long) 'thread', and found myself on a Web Page that seemed to be describing a programming environment oriented towards music and 'the arts' but (and perhaps I missed it) nowhere did I see anything that explicitly explained what language William was writing his software in.

    ( Perhaps I should just be happy that it works and don't ask what makes all the pretty lights blink ? )  [ From the depths of my packrat memory I get fragments of a humorous message in ' pseudo-German ' telling people to keep-their-hands off the equipment but I haven't been able to locate it with a quick Google-search. ]

    I got the feeling that a bunch of the guys (who are really into this stuff) have significantly differently backgrounds than do I (I'm a retired EE from the ' hardware world ') and the conversations seem to make ' leaps ' from-one-topic-to-another and I can't see the intervening connections (I assume that there are some ....).

    Regards;

    be sure to select the 'see all 52 comments' then it will show all the traffic.  The language is called 'Processing' and I believe the download zip file has a copy of the source as part of the download.  In earlier comments he describes some possible ways to modify the data file.

    Thanks for the assistance.

    Dear William,

    Thank you so much for this application for my recently acquired Flex 6300.  I have a temporary weak power supply so no transmissions right now.  I am using the Behringer CMD and like it so far.  I have just come off of a Flex 1500 with the Hercules Midi Controller using Tobias's software.  I intend to provide comments in about 30 days.
    Thanks again and best of 73,
    Bob, KVJO
