Native Instruments Maschine and TraktorWouldn’t it be great if you could control Traktor using your Maschine?
It is possible! From summer 2013 on I worked on a mapping and tried to enable the maximum possibilities of Maschine, right in Traktor. From individual colors (HSB-color mode of Maschine) for cue points, full 4 deck support and FX control to Remix Decks and Freeze Slices.
The first Version was an ordinary mapping - just a TSI-file to import in Traktor, allowing you the most features. But at the end there were more than 3500 commands in it: heavy load time for the Controller Editor in Traktor and sometimes bugs which were hard to find. And one of the main issues: Traktor only allows to create 8 modifiers and use a maximum of two at once. It was that complex that I reworked the whole thing.
Now there is a separate bridge: Motor! In the background there is still a mapping in Traktor, but more lightweight. Plug your Maschine in, start Motor, open Traktor and start playing.
Constantly updated and functions on user request.
Awesome work man! Very clear instructions and efficient button control. I think your mapping is by far the best because of the efficiency and LED feedback. (Video of him with version 1)
I’ll have to say that you’ve done some truly amazing work with this mapping. By far the best Maschine MK2 mapping I’ve come across.
Your mapping has changed EVERYTHING about the way I use Traktor. I made a super complex mapping for live remixing and now I don't need it!
