Traktor Kontrol S4, Maschine compatibility
Indulge me, is it feas 2 create live beatz & tunz on maschine import 2 an S4 deck A,B,C or D and mix,add FX and scratch lon side on the remainin decks thru a midi cable by changin Maschine's pad source 2 corrospondin midi input, then ultimately record thru Traktors internal recordin software.
or ne other way 2 allow the S4 an Maschine to coincide for the the desired effect.
You can use soundflower to make the Maschine software's output go into an output in traktor (virtual cables) and then also set the maschine software to listen to midiclock sent from the traktor software.

or is it combining the 2 software audio outputs in2 1 channel, rather then using the RCA or 1/4 hardware outputs on the S4 im using the Mac as the audio source leaving Maschine and the 4 Decks on the S4 to run through the mac and use S4's internal soundcard for the headphones. using oldskool beatmatching for the midiclock or a track, thus eliminating the midi cable?
or have i just confused myself with typing diarrhoea

Breath in, Breath out.
what happens is that Traktor will read one deck, lets say deck D, as the output of Maschine. So anything getting output from Maschine will go through traktor and through your S4. This means that you can mix like you would normally do with the audio output from Maschine via Deck D. The Midi Clock sent from Traktor to Maschine will Keep everything in tempo.
Traktorbible.com explains how to do this in detail on one system
I get maschine to play thru my S4 but I have no controls. Can anyone help? I have it running with Jack router.
what "Controlls" are you trying to achieve?
