Configuration Instructions

(0) Connect the SCS.3d to your computer.

(1) Start DaRouter software and select "GEN Single SCS.3d Dual Virtual V1.00" in the active preset dropdown selector.

(2) Start Deckadance software and enter in the "SETUP" window.

(3) Enable in the midi interface list "INPUT: FROM DAROUTER" (...make sure that it's on) and select the SCS.3d in "REMOTE CONTROLLER DEVICE".

(4) Enjoy. Don't forget to read the explanation of the mapping below.

Global Controls

The center section of DaScratch switches its function based on which mode is selected. Certain buttons never change their function and are referred to “Global Controls”. Global controls are controls whose function doesn't change when the mode is changed. We'll start with the mode switching section…
