    Default Cueing Next Track With a Midi Controller?

    Hey all,

    I'm new - so go easy on me. I just purchased an Axiom 25 Next Gen and might use it to do some DJ sets (aside from production). Is there any way to cue your next track in the headphones by using simply this device, and a macbook pro with Traktor?

    Thanks!

    If you get yourself a soundcard such as an NI Audio 2

    Then you could try and map it to work something like this. Mapping is easier said than done but is doable.

    So theoretically (Im at work so I couldnt watch the video with sound) I could map both the NI Audio 2 and the Axiom to Traktor?
    Thanks again.

    you dont/cant map soundcards to traktor. just use them to output 2 channels, one for crowd, the 2nd for cueing.

    then you can map the midicontroller to the cue buttons in traktor so choose the track you wanna cue up..

    Awesome. Is there a similar product that will work with Mac OS X Leopard 10.5.8?

    The specifications say that the NI Audio 2 is OSX 10.6 or higher. What about the Numark DJ IO?

    You can get audio 2 DJ drivers for osx 10.5

    http://co.native-instruments.com/ind...tes#Audio_2_DJ

    However I think Traktor Pro 2.5 (latest version of software) only works with 10.6+

    Perhaps think about upgrading to Lion. It's cheap as chips.

    But basically the way the keyboard in video is set up it also requires a dj mixer so you'd need one of those.

    TBH it's a bit square peg round hole. You may be better off getting a dedicated djing device like the NI S2
