What are we talking about here. 1 button or one led?
One button. You should have one led, one button, resistor for the led, one potentiometer and maybe one digital encoder but that you can buy later. This way you can learn a little better how to do everything. I think the teensy tutorial has those things although.
Later if you want I may help you a bit with those things and later you buy a controller from me eheheeh
So would these type of rotary encoders works, http://www.ebay.com/itm/10pcs-New-0-...item20ce385b94
Im thinking Ill need 4of them, 1 for the browser tree, 1 for the tracks and 2 for selecting effect (deck 1 & 2).........maybe 2 more for selecting loops but I think just the standard potentiometer will do for that.
But at least for the beginning you could use them.
For loops and effects I don't know if I would go standard pot or encoder. I guess I would encoder if I could make them be sensitive. For example, I still can't make one rotary click go one down or one up but once again I think it's because i'm inexperienced with them.
I wonder if that's just a Traktor thing. On my Ecler NUO 4 the rotary encoder I have mapped to browse tracks does the same thing!! When I turn it, it'll skip every other song but it works fine with VDJ or Serato. I think it's a setting.
Just been watching more vids and came across the traktor f1 used with the remix decks. How would you make a diy controller operate all the slots just like that. as in the mapping for traktor pro 2 you can only assign the top for slots. I know the midifighter 3d used HID to do this (somehow) but how does the f1 and can i do it?
EDIT; just came across the lemur mapping.... seems to work well, anyone have experience/using it?

I am currently finishing a prototype traktor controller which is a direct interface replica of the software, for this i have used the midi box system using the new NG system.
I have been building midi box stuff for years, the last thing i built was the only fully working replica controller of the MOTU BPM soft drum machine.
here is the finished unit.
I designed the whole thing from the ground up and used the midi box as the brain using midibox mios as the main software. the controller has a built in editor system so i do not need a pc editor and also has a small storage chip to hold different setups i can merge from one to the other in realtime.
The new project the Midibox ng has even more functionality why not take a look at that as a possibility? here is the link: http://www.ucapps.de/midibox_ng.html
I didn't understand the first question.
About the second one... yeah i've tried it. I don't like touch for these kind of things. I like analogue.
