    Default Let Traktor give you some feedback on which Performance Mode you're in

    So, after a few weeks of using the VCI-100SE firmware and layout, I got frustrated with getting confused on which performance mode I was in. I don't have the nice new overlays yet, so I decided rather than get out my nifty label maker that I would find a complicated but interesting solution in Traktor so to give me feedback about which Performance Mode I'm rockin at any given time.

    First I created 3 new Window Layouts in Traktor.

    1) DECK C MODE
    2) FADER FX MODE
    3) CUE/JUGGLE MODE

    Next I opened up Bome Midi Translator and split the note values on the Performance Knobs so that the bottom of the knob would output just a single midi note and turning them toward the top would output the normal CC values.

    Once I had that, I was able to add some Window Layout triggers to select the appropriate Window Layout above.

    Now when I'm looking at my VCI-100 I have light indicators and when I'm looking at my screen I have Traktor showing me which Performance Mode I have.

    Yes, I plan to in the next month. I just have a lot of shows coming up so it's crunch time.
