    Default Traktor Z1 + X1 and Korg Volca Beats


    Im abit new to all this.

    Right now i have a Z1 and a X1, im interested in buying some kind of drum machine. And the Korg volca beats looks like a nice cheap one.

    Is there a way to sync these 3 devices, so the volca beats plays the same tempo as traktor? From what i understand i have no MIDI out from my controllers. Is this correct?

    If so, what would be the cheapest way to connect everything.

    Im happy for any pointers or help, thanks alot!

    You would need to run a USB MIDI converter for the Beats to sync, and with the Z1, you don't have any way of inputting the audio. You'd be better off buying a F1 and leveraging Traktor's remix decks and step sequencer for drums.

    I would recommend a Roland UME or M-Audio Midisport midi interface. Do not get the cheap ten dollar amazon ones. They will fail.

    You can program drums in any (free) DAW, and play them in a remix deck...
