    Do a search in the mapping forum and on the native instrument forum for X-Session Pro TSI and see what comes up. I doubt M-Audio will give an official one but it's worth checking if NI does. If not you might have to map it yourself but there's no better way to learn MIDI than that, really.
    It's the FAQ. Read it.

    thanks for the quick respone Dvls, i was looking at mapping it myself but being pretty new it all i dont have a clue where to start, did map the x session from another post on here but the cross fader didnt work with traktor also got the kontrol editor for the nano but dont have a clue with it.. was kinda looking to set em up play around with them then pick it up as i go along (easy way out really)
    looked everywhere for TSI's for both but cant seem to find that many..
    plus i was hoping that someone could help me set both up in traktor pro (walkthrough if poss) or if anything was avail about setting up two midi controllers in traktor pro.

    cheers

    Jay jump on Pootube and check out the eangolden channel. A lot of useful stuff about midi mapping basics etc up on there. Don't Panic! mapping isn't as hard as it may first appear once you click to the basix geez even i can (sorta) do it now lol

    Yeah map it yourself. No better way to learn.

    It sounds difficult but in fact it's easy and only tedious.

    The recipe:
    Preferences, controllers, add new controller.

    When you have a new controller:
    Add new function, midi learn, touch the button on the controller, turn off midi learn, repeat for each button/knob on the controller.

    This is basically what it's all about. It's easy. I can't understand why people are always asking for TSIs.... You also have to set some specific details if it's a knob or a button, and maybe add some of your spice to make it more custom.

    You can download a tsi and load it to see how the led return thing is done if your controller has leds.

    Its more of pain in the ass-end changing preset mappings than to just do them from scratch yourself. It doesn't have to be anything fancy at first, once you get some confidence with it you can add more complicated stuff like 8 modifiers later on. Just about everytime i play i'm changing the tsi's on our gears.

    Everyone's setup and mixing style is different. What i've setup my gear to do, but not be useful to you with the way you do things.

    Best tip I can give to setup midi gear is to make it an evolving process of taking a mental note of everytime you had to use my mouse for something. Then slowly mapping controls to all those functions in an ergonomic way. Rome wasn't built in a day. Even if you had a good idea on a whole custom mapping for a controller, once you actually use it, you may think of new ways of streamlining the process and re-order the whole mapping.

    X-session is pretty straight forward. If you'll be using

    tsi is for traktor pro, tks was for traktor3

    another hint for your mapping: if you search for a certain function, just choose the [info] button on the top right conrner and flip the mouse over the fiel you want to choose.
    a window pops up, that thows you the name and description of the button/field etc you chose.
    the go find this name in the settings->controller->add in...

    good luck!
