Beatsource Tech: Silent Cue Is Awesome! (And Now You Can Map It)

The Silent Cue feature has been found in Serato DJ Pro for quite some time, but it has never been midi-mappable from within the software interface. This means that not every user had access to it, unless they wanted to get into some midi XML file trickery.
