    I really can’t believe how this is such a big deal for you guys, how are you so dependent on others to do your Midi mapping and scripting for you? Sure it’s convenient, but if you’re using digital, I think you should learn to use it for yourself, rather than copy-paste. I’m not even a computer scientist, but with a bit of homework, I can do any mapping or effects chain I want.
    I’ve only ever used VritualDJ, is there some sort of special qualification people need in order to do Traktor and Serato scripting?

  • scamo

    Thanks for the “honorable mention”. I sure wish I had the time to continue with my S4 (and other) mappings. Mapping is fun for me to do and I like how it opens up room for creativity for others too.


  • sdzfromtocho

    hope that someone will make ableton 9.1 script for mf3d

  • ote//o

    Yay, I kind of feel like the bigblaa haha. Really didn’t expect to see my mapping here !

    Has anyone heard anything from Native Instruments about expanding the programabiility of midi mapping?? It seems like such an obvious next step.. adding in if then else, and case statements (If D#2 is held do this effect. if not do that). I know modifiers do a bit of this but its extremely limited.. can you imagine, timed events (on press hold effect for X beats then release). One thing that would be amazing right now would be having Global modifiers that all devices can look for. In my case right now i have 2 midi fighters and on the first one currently I choose the deck i want to effect using the side buttons which sets a modifier to a value of 1 thru 4 (assigned to each deck). I want to expand the effected deck assign to Both controllers at the touch of one button.. but since each device has its own set of modifiers I can’t tell the 2nd midi fighter anything. I hope this functionality as well as the editing environment get a Major overhaul soon.. it’s a long time coming.

      Adding a modifier condition slots would be good start too. I have a concept called “modifier loop” in my Spectra junior mapping. It allows for designing timers in the size of the modifiers available in Traktor (16 beats max)

      Basic idea is to have four groups of effect types (filter, color, mash, and slicer which instantly remixes a track in a different patterns). Each FX group should pack up to eight cool presets that are good for spicing a track, build up transitions with both hands on a mixer. Addition to this are three release effect buttons.

      • Wuce Brayne (the Bitman)

        Hey Stewe! I have been trying to make such a timer loop forever, but for some reason it isn’t working (not able to output Beatgrid to bump modifier values). Care to share your process for this? Been working on a REALLY cool Launchpad mapping I plan on uploading here.

    Wow! Fame at last. I’m on a DJ Tech Tools post;) Feels a bit like being asked to play in the MOS or SPACE!!!

  • Ahop

    How about mapping for the ddj sr (or sx) to the ableton push? I cant figure out how to quantize it so that i can play clips over tracks in serato using my SR. Great article, great site!


  • Kieran

    I can’t seem to get the launchpad mapping to work with the launchpad s… any suggestions?

    • Toontown

      Have you plugged it into your computer?

      • Kieran

        Yes, and I’ve tried the newest launchpad s firmware… still nothing.

  • Jake Hale

    Just got a copy of The One Software and I’m messing around with mapping- does any one know of on-going discussions for using it with NI kontrol hardware?

    • djcl.ear

      The One last week released a free version so it should catch more views. This together with its Modular customizable interface, added to its easy MIDI Learn system… and still there is no forum where to discuss about it.

      • Jake Hale

        Who do we petition to get one going I wonder.

  • René via ‘Allo ‘Allo

    I’d really love to see the Allen and Heath K2 mapped with the instant grat fx on the lower banks…..

    • René via ‘Allo ‘Allo

      I’ve mapped my K2 to act as a pitch slider for each deck should I need it (with my x1)

      • Dancin’ Mark

        That sounds really cool.

        • René via ‘Allo ‘Allo

          It’s quite nice for when the inevitable ‘laptop djs can’t mix’ dweeb comes over to the console :-)

    • Ben

      I’ve actually made one for my k2. I can upload it and put a link on here if you want.

      • René via ‘Allo ‘Allo

        Ben that would be great if you could! Was thinking of getting the midi fighter just for this reason, and would prefer to use just the x1 and k2 set up I have though.

        • Ben

          I’ll upload it in a bit. but you can program any controller for it. All I did was download the midi fighters instant grat mapping then organize it all by the cc commands and if you look at the comments column it says what the command is (reverb, beatmasher 1 2, ect) then just click on each cc command and program it with whatever gear you want. Works the exact same as a midi fighter combos and all.

      • Dan White

        Add it to Maps! :)

    • Chris Tower

      I have a great 2 deck mapping that uses the red layer for instant grat fx on the bottom and full control of the first 3 fx decks on top (4th deck is reserved for a delay freeze). The orange layer has the cue point control and the green layer is the full mixing layer with eqs, filters, looping, beat jumping, track browsing, and all that kind of stuff. I’ve been meaning to upload it but haven’t gotten around to it, I can upload it with full instructions later today if anyone is interested.

      • René via ‘Allo ‘Allo

        Yeah do it Chris. Sounds awesome

    There’s a mac and pc version that was officially released by Pioneer. It may not be the same as the custom mapping in this article but it’s direct from Pioneer so it should at least work. http://pioneerdj.com/support/product.php?c=3447&lang=en&p=DDJ-SX&t=179

  • Nick

    Anyone have a DDJ-SX mapping for traktor for the mac? That one seems great but can’t find a mac one! :(

    • Tom Wenger

      hey the traktor mapping files are in .tsi , isn’t it supposed to work on both mac and pc ?

      • DJ_ForcedHand

        There will be some different commands from Mac to PC… for instance “Function” and “Option” is not an option on Windows machines just as “Alt” and “Windows” is not available on MacOS. You will need to reassign these commands if you use them. I believe the .TSI file is an XML document and as such should be usable anywhere.

    • Dancin’ Mark

      Pioneer makes one. http://www.pioneerdj.com and look up your controller under “Support.”

    • DaeJo

      you just need to change the DDJ-SX out of its serato mode

      • DaeJo

        pioneer has a walkthrough on that on their manual

        • Nick

          Getting it into midi mode isn’t the problem but the mappings for mac and pc are a different file, i need a mac one!

          • Fraa

            Uhm, they’re not different, they’re actually exactly the same. Btw, I prefer the official Pioneer mapping over the Viper mapping, it got rid of some annoying bugs that I encountered. For example when you switch decks and you want to adjust the tempo, the tempo slider sometimes wouldn’t move on the screen (and no it’s not because of Master Tempo). The settings for the jogwheels are also finetuned to near perfection as far as I’m concerned. I think I only changed a few minor things to my own liking, but 99% of the mapping was pretty much perfect.

  • Dancin’ Mark

    I have an X1 Mk1 Traktor Pro 2/ Traktor Scratch Pro that provides the standard operation and by pressing shift added control of the EQ. I also mapped separate Headphone Cue On/Off so that you can cue up your track prior to playing it. I’ll be uploading it soon. I am tweaking a few things before offering it. It was inspired by
    Oliosky’s Kontrol X1 C/D deck internal mixer Mapping.

    • Dan White

      Awesome! Get tweaking and don’t forget to upload it when you’re done : )
