FAQ

Compatibility with NowPlaying2

NowPlaying2 is an excellent peice of software used by streamers to add track information to their live DJ streams.

Both Cardinia Pro and NowPlaying2 work by emulating a CDJ player on the ProDJ Link network as player number 7, which can lead to conflicts and prevent features from operating correctly.

To avoid conflicts, Cardinia Pro has the ability to announce itself as an alternate player (player number 8) via a DIP switch.

To do this follow the steps below:

Using Cardinia Pro as a ProDJ-to-MIDI converter in a Pioneer mixer setup

If you wish to use Cardinia Pro only as a ProDJ Link-to-MIDI converter together with a ProDJ Link enabled mixer (including the XDJ-XZ), you should disable Mixer Emulation on Cardinia Pro.

This prevents potential conflicts on the network, but will disable the Touch Cue feature on the Cardinia Pro.

To do this follow the steps below:

Picture (click to expand)Explanation
  • Disconnect all cables from Cardinia Pro
  • Unscrew the following 4 screws and lift off the top lid
- Find the DIP switch labelled as SW2 towards the bottom right of the unit
  • Using a toothpick or the tip of a pen, carefully flip the MEMU switch (at position 2) to the OFF position (ie. down towards the front of the case)
  • Place the top lid back on the unit and screw in the 4 screws
  • Re-connect Cardinia Pro to your setup and enjoy MIDI features!

What USB power source can I use?

Cardinia Pro requires 5V and takes less than 500mA, so any standard 5V USB charger/source should work.

You can also power the device from a USB port on your CDJ or laptop (the USB port also sends USB-MIDI clock to your laptop).
