How To Maschine Polypressure mapping traktor?
hey DJTT Community,
i have a question to the mapping guys out there.
I am facing the following problem:
I want to map a pad (in traktor 2.6) of NI Maschine in a way to activate an effect when i hit it and control the effect value with the PolyPressure Value of the pad.
Can't figure it out how to do it. Have tried some things without success.
I think it should be possible without using "Bome’s Midi Translator" or am I wrong?? (it's said in this article: http://www.djtechtools.com/2011/10/0...of-aftertouch/ )
Would be nice if i don't have to use another program to do this.
greetings from Austria
I don't have maschine to tell for sure but you should be able to test out if your pads are sending velocity CC to traktor. Enable learn and press the pad - you should get 'note on' value and while pressed push it a bit more and check if other value show up. If so that would be your FX parameter code.
I've tried that already.
in the controller editor I set the "Hit" event to a midi note and the "Press" event to the Polypressure values.
if I hit the pad with learn enabled I get the Midi Note from the Pad but when I change the pressure on the pad the command in the assignment field doesn't change.
But on the Maschine display I can see the value of the Polypressure changing but Traktor doesn't get it.
If MIDI can't recognize it that could probably be a part of HID integration with maschine software.
On the Maschine Display it shows the MIDI value of the Polypressure.
And In the NI Controller Editor I can assign the Midi Commands and there I can select the Polvpressure as command Maschine_ControllerEditor.jpg
So I think it should be possible to map it. But I can't figure out how.
Try to change value from note to CC (seems that press/velocity are sharing same note). If Traktor still don't recognize it by press try to assign it manually with mouse.
i've done it like you said.
1) when in learn mode i get the following after releasing the pad: maschinepolylearn.jpg
and when i hit the pad the Dry/Wet knob jumps to 100% and after releasing back to 0.
I think this happens because the CC Value jumps to 127 on hit and the command gets just the value from the initial hit.
2) when I assign the command to the note of the PP event (Ch1 C1 in my case) by hand. nothing happens if i press the pad... maschinepoly.jpg
It's normal behavior for fader/knob setting - retype it in to encoder and see what happen.

If assigned the note by hand, nothing happens.

Disable the Hit MIDI note, use only Press. Map it as a fader/knob>direct using CC and make sure the fx on command is mapped as hold so it turns off when you release it.
