Lexicon Manual

Field Mappings

Lexicon supports more fields than all DJ apps do (Energy, Danceability, Popularity field but also your Custom Tags) which can be mapped to normal fields using the Field Mapper.

Editing Field Mappings

On the Sync page, use the Edit mappings button to set up your field mappings.

A mapping has a source and a target. The source is a field from Lexicon and the target is a field that exists in the DJ app.

For example, all DJ apps have the Comment field that you can map to, but only VirtualDJ has the User1 and User2 fields.

Choosing a mapping Energy ➡ Comment will result in your DJ app Comment fields to look like "Energy 08".

Overwrite

When you enable the Overwrite checkbox, Lexicon will overwrite the field with the new mapped value in the resulting track. If you disable overwriting, then the new mapped value will be appended to the original value.

Combining

You can choose to combine fields by mapping different sources to the same target. The results will be separated by a comma.

For example: Mapping both Energy and Popularity to Comment will result in "Energy 08, Pop 05".

You can combine as many fields as are available.

Engine DJ Color

Engine DJ does not (yet) support track colors. To get your colors from Lexicon in Engine DJ, you can create a field mapping. This will add the color name in the chosen target field. For example, the color Dark Red will be turned into "Red_Dark".

Tags

See the Tags manual page for information on how Tags are handled.

DJ App Field Compatibility

Depending on your DJ app, Lexicon will automatically map fields as displayed below.
