I know that the whole DJing with a guitar game control is an old concept.
Ean posted this video above with him going wireless with a GH guitar 5 years ago.
However, a lot of controllerism and digital DJing has changed since 2008. There have been several upgrades to Traktor since people started mapping game controls to their DJ gear. Remix Decks and new effects have been introduced with the latest Traktor version 2.6.x. New controls like the NI F1, Z1, and others have been launched since then.
That being said...
1) Is there a new and improved way to directly map a Guitar Hero control to Traktor? More to the point, could you possibly map a Remix Deck or maybe even two Remix Decks to a Guitar Hero controller?
2) If so, could someone guide me through a step-by-step tutorial updating myself and the rest of us on how to create the mapping?
3) How would such a new mapping of a Guitar Hero control be used to trigger a combination of 'Instant Gratification'-style effects combinations?
4) Anyone who has an older Guitar Hero mapping, could you make your .tsi file for that in the "Mappings" section on DJTT?
I'm asking because I could never get the original instructions to work well enough to break it out during a live gig.
I have everything I need ready to go. I have a couple of dusty Guitar Hero guitars - one wired XBOX360 and one wireless PS2 - a copy of Xpadder, and a USB-to-PS2 bluetooth converter to keep one of the guitars 100% wireless. Currently, I am using Traktor Pro 2.6.3 on Windows 7 with an S2 and MIDI Fighter 3D.
Go forth and multiply. May the Force be with you ...and all that good stuff.
