One X1 Traktor Kontrol for 4decks?
is it possible to use one kontrol x1 to control all 4 decks in traktor?

ie channels for deck 1 & 2 can be flipped with a click of a button to control deck 3 & 4

thanks

The following looks like a mapping for 4 decks with one controller

was wondering about this myself as I have an x1 on order. Was thinking you could have 2 sets of midi map one for 1+2 and another identically configured one for 3+4, then set one button to switch between the maps, either on the controller or say the tab key on the lappy? not sure if midi configuration can be switched outside of the options menu though...?

Ok so mine finally arrived after sooooo long of waiting.

Has anyone actually tried this with 4 decks?

Keen to experiment myself but going on holiday for a week in a few days so won't have much time to fiddle with it.

I gave up on the pre-order and ordered straight from NI.

I submitted a ticket with them about Aus stock and they said that they cannot give any indication of when stock will hit Aus.

He then said "We have a small amount left in the online store if I was you I would order from there"

I took that to mean that he cannot give out the info but basically aus will continue to get the shaft.

I think they still have stock left.

mine finally shipped (from storedj) on saturday (???) after purchasing in march, not being told they were out of stock, informed that they were out of stock (after paying) and told it'd be a couple of weeks so i thought bugger-it i may as well wait (they did offer a full refund). every now and then i asked for an update and it was always a couple of weeks etc. after a few months it's finally on the way to me. goodness.

yup, i made up my own mapping so when i go into Midi Mode (pressing Shift and Hotcue at the same time) it has the controls for deck 3/4..

theres a thread on the NI forums where some dude has uploaded a mapping which does the same, i built mine off of that it works well enough, we're getting a second one soon anyway so we have controls for all 4 available at once.

??? that doesnt make too much sense, but of course you'll be stuck with the duo software. you will still have effects, but only the 6 that are with duo

hmmmmm do you mean traktor scratch duo, traktor pro and duo have no timecode support, i think if you purchase scratch duo licence it wont work with pro, my understanding would be you would have to buy the scratch pro licence. do you have an audio cared already???

Same boat I am in. Will be in queensland for a week.

But I did get to atleast try it last night. Plug N Play is an understatement, It automatically changed all the effects in Traktor and everything.

Pretty impressed overall. Going to go digital for a while me thinks and sell off all my gear. I just wanna go back to TT's and a mixer, CDJs seem pointless now with Traktor in my setup.

FYI - I had one on hold at spank records which I just gave up, since I'm on struggle street at the moment with bills and shit.
If anyone wants it, give them a call pretty much now
