    Default Can't find a "How-to" for Traktor Pro mapping?

    Sorry if it's a noob question guys, but I'd like to start custom mapping my VCI-100 and MPD32. I can't seem to find ANYTHING on how to go about doing this.

    Maybe my search skills are borked.

    Best way to learn mate is just to dive into it! There are a few good articles on the DJTT blog tho. I'm scratching my head a bit mapping my new x1 but getting there slowly.

    Here are all of the articles I ever read for learning how to map things in Traktor Pro. You just gotta go through the examples so that you really understand what you're doing and why you're doing it. It's a pretty dry read as NI didn't really design the Controller Manager to be used by the general public, but it is pretty informative if you can read through it all. All of these articles should tell you everything you need to know to get started with your own mappings.

    I still have a lot of trouble with modifiers and LED's. At least with the new updates we don't have to find the CC note of each led to be able to map it, that was infuriating to say the least.

    Sander, great thread you have going there. If you continue it, I would recommend throwing some pictures in there. Although it's extremely informative, the read starts to become dull because of all the text. If the NI forum allows it, I would add in a ton of pictures.
