    Default Traktor pro vs VCI jog wheels --> problems

    Hey guys!
    I'm doing my new mapping for traktor pro. I love this new version of traktor put I'm having big issues with the jog wheels. (vestax vci 100)

    I would simply like to have the jog wheels working the same way as under T3 (pitch bend on the outside, scratch or seek inside)

    Even with the official file from the vestax website I can't do this! With this file, there is no pitch bend and no real scratch (it sounds like moving the jog of a cd player, even when CD mode was off)

    I tried the tempo bend + cd-dj mode thing but it doesn't really work. The tracks just stop and play doesn't do any effect.

    If someone as a working tsi file for the vci jog wheels?

    Thanks in advance!

    I as well would like to have the option to switch on "seek" with my jog wheels as I did with the supplied tks file for T3. It seems in Traktor Pro it's possible to do so with the "transport>seek position" control, but I can't quite get the modifier working so that I retain my scratch ability.

    Can anyone help out here?

    You don't need to use modifiers for this. When you press the Vinyl Mode button it changes the note message the jog wheel is sending.

    Make sure you have Scratch On set to the note that gets sent when you touch the jog wheel as a "hold" command, and that the "Scratch" command is when you more the jog wheel back and forth.

    And then have "Seek Position" when the Vinyl Mode button is off.
    It's the FAQ. Read it.

    Talking of jog wheel note messages....

    I was experimenting with mapping the jog wheels and found in the VCI manual that the outer edge of the jog wheel sends different notes depending on whether 'time stretch' is active or not.

    What is the 'time stretch' mode?

    Time stretch == key lock

    Staring me right in the face. Thanks Bento.

    Is it correct that the sync buttons can't be mapped properly because they are specific to the hardware states of the vCI? Does this follow for the key lock button?

    Default what works for me...

    Here's the settings I'm using to get seek to work when in non-vinyl mode on my vestax vci-100:

    seek position: deck a: direct: cc 18 (ch1)
    type of controller: rotary (7fh;01h)
    rotary sensitivity at 5%
    with invert checked

    So for some reason I can't get the "type of controller: jogg" to work at all. Ideas?

    and does anyone know the difference between rotary (7Fh;01h) and rotary (3Fh;41h)? what do those numbers mean?
