Problem with Traktor, I'm sure I'm not the only one!
Hey! This is my first post on this forum! I'm using a Mixtrack PRO with NI's Traktor 2.0.3 on a Macbook, I have been struggling with this problem for a while now.. Google didn't provide answers so I hope you guys have found a way to work around this!
My problem is when I'm making a custom mapping and I want to add the pitch bend (some people call it tempo bend) to my jogwheels. I just want to be able to speed up the track / slow down the track by touching the sides of the platter, and at the same time when the track isn't playing I would like to be able to move back and forth in the track by spinning the platter. For some reason as soon as I touch the platter the BPM goes through the roof or the track completely stops.
Is there some way to work around this? I've tried setting the platter to both "fader/knob" and "encoder", I've also played with the interaction mode and the rotary encoder-options. Also I've tried using "Tempo bend", "Tempo bend (stepless)" and "Jog scratch + Tempo bend", no luck there.
I would be eternally grateful for information on how to fix this problem, I'm supposed to play at a private party in a while and I don't wanna use the "SYNC"-button.
Hi rSet and welcome to forum,
It's been a while since I used 2.0 so can't really tell you which command you should use but I can suggest you to have a look at Traktor Bible site and download few mappings for your version of traktor and give jogs a try. When you find jog behavior you are fine with - look in to controller manager and try to find correct command and replicate the same one to your custom mapping.
Hope it helps
Hey Stewe, thanks for the reply!
I've already tried four or five mappings, none with working jogwheels. The authors even specified that the jogs were working but they didn't. I heard that NI updated and that the pitchbend command got broken. Is there no way to fix it?
There is always a way to mix mapping. Give me some time till I check my friend's traktor which is 2.0.something and I'll report back to you.

Is there a reason you're still using 2.0.3?
