    Arrow Jester's X1 Mapping MKII (2 deck, FX + EQ Modes)

    Hi guys. Here is my latest mapping for the X1 designed if you would like to use it as a mixer. It is very much an "either/or" type mapping as you will not be able to utilise effects if the deck is in EQ mode. I also whipped up a jpeg and hope it kinda makes sense. I'm happy to answer any questions and help if you wish to use this as a base and make some of your own tweaks.
    Enjoy

    Hi Jester,

    Thank you for all your hard work. I am planning to get a new controller for Traktor by the end of the month and have been considering Novation Twitch or two Faderfox DJ3 units. Now when I see your mapping, the X1 is also going into consideration.

    I was wondering if it is possible to have two X1 units working together in order to have complete control over 4 decks - A, B with the first and C,D with the second. I am not using sample decks, so the same mapping on both X1s would work great for me.

    Sure, you can run 2 like this: A/B C/D or A/C B/D

    Also if you buy an X1 before the end of september, you get traktor 2 free

    Just picked up my X1 today.

    Going to be giving this mapping a go as I don't have a mixer at the moment.

    This uses the NHL protocol yeah?

    Okay I got your mapping loaded and been playing with it. Most of it is pretty intuitive.
    The only bit which doesn't make sense to me is why changing from FX to EQ mode kills effects units 1 and 2.

    I know in your jpeg it makes it clear it does that but what is the advantage in doing so?

    Also changing either deck from FX to EQ mode kills both deck's FX units 1 and 2, which means if you have an effect going on 1 and want to change deck 2 to EQ mode you can't cause it will kill effects on deck 1.

    I agree. I usually play with FX and EQ settings at the same time in order to come up with some interesting combinations.

    Sweet mapping Jes. It almost makes me wish I didn't have a mixer... which is weird.
