    Default Help with some settings

    Hi there all.

    hope someone out there can help me out with a few issues.

    I've been using traktor scratch pro with a kontrol x1 for about a year.
    I've recently bought and Akai APC-40 to sync with my traktor.

    here are some issues and questions i need answered

    1. must a warp every track i add to my apc. (because this can take forever)
    2. can i set up my kontrol x1 to my apc (to use for looping and syncing tracks)
    3. I've seen a tutorial on youtube to sync ableton with traktor using a mac but is this possible to do with a PC.

    hope to hear some feedback in regards to my issues

    1- yes, (warping clips in live, not the apc itself) having beatgrids set properly in traktor helps a ton, otherwise the clock sync wont be spot on.
    2- not following really following you on this one. are you trying to hook the x1 to live? it works as well as a regular midi controller so yeah, it can be done.
    3- yup, search the forums

    put the X1 in midi mode and map it the way you would with anything else in Live.

    But, if you don't want to warp tracks, Live is not for you.

    if it takes you too much time.. search the abletonlivedj.com forums and see which warping services they recommend and get them to do it for you.
