    Cool VCI-300+Traktor Pro - Setup Jog Wheel & LED List

    I couldnīt find the answer in the forum so i got to dig it out myself:

    With the use of one Modifier per Jog Wheel it is possible to have a Itch like way of using the Jog Wheel. The only drawback is that you have to press the "platter" if you want to "scratch" when you are not playing.

    1. Add "Modifier #1" and assign it to the left "platter-press" (B5) with mode Button & Hold, Set Value=1
    2. Add "Scratch On" and assign it to the left "platter-press" (B5) with mode Button & Hold
    3. Add "Scratch" and assign it to the left Jog Wheel (CC60 + CC02) with relative mode and Mod#1 Condition 1
    4. Add "Tempo Bend (Stepless)" and assign it to the left Jog Wheel (CC60 + CC02) with relative mode and Mod#1 Condition 0

    Repeat the same for the right Jog Wheel with Modifier #2.

    This Setup is pretty simple, you may adjust the sensibility to your need. The most important part for me was: When the Deck is playing i may stop it by pressing the platter and start it again by releasing it.

    Using Asio4All with a buffer size of 64 and no latency compensation makes it almost feel like Itch.

    Also here is a List of the LEDīs Midi Map (You have to add one octave to the notes, as traktor numbers Midi Notes differently from Max/Msp):

    As requested by xavierdj here is my mapping.
    It is only for the left Jog Wheel of the VCI300, as i donīt use traktor. I made this to test if it is possible to use the VCI300 with Traktor. (I canīt stand ITCH!)
    Currently Iīm using the VCI300 with ableton live + "max for live". I also have a max patch to remote control the tempo "dj like" from the VCI300. Iīm working on this currently, so if anybody else here is using ableton for live DJing with VCI300 i could share my work with him/her.

    Default Vfx-1?

    Do you know of a similar LED note list for the VFX-1? Or if not how did you find out the notes for the 300?

    I found those simply by trial & error.
    I have max for live and just tried every note, took me like 5min. to test 127 notes and write the results into an excel file.
    I donīt have VFX1 unit, so sorry...

    Apc is great. There are also some python scripts that do some great stuff. I use the focusrite saffire, as it is usb powered and has gain control for the inputs.
