The result of countless contributions from developers all over the globe, Mixxx 1.7.0 features an overhauled MIDI mapping system with advanced scripting capabilities, improvements to vinyl control, and many other tweaks and optimizations.
Our brand new MIDI scripting engine allows both users and developers to easily add complex behaviour to their MIDI devices.
