    Default Controlling the remix decks

    Hello there,

    I was out of the dj scene for about a year and came back few weeks ago and bought myself a kontrol s4 (which i love). But then i wanted to get more productive and start to use the remix decks and have a akai mpd24 which is perfect in format for accessing the 16 clips (it has 16 pads). But am i getting this right, i can't really map the mpd to control the cells only trigger the 4 decks to play, so i can just play 4 different samples with my mpd24?
    TL;DR can i map the mpd24 to control remix decks cells or is it just the f1 that can do that?

    sorry if this has already been answered but i have googled now for an hour and haven't found i good answer.

    With the current build, you can only map the first row of each sample deck, a future update (unknown date) will unlock the rest for regular MIDI controllers.

    There are a few hacks here and there but the simplest solution is to go for the F1.

    oh well, i think i will just wait for it, though a kontrol f1 would be neat i think i could do all the things i want to with the mpd 24 when the mapping features will be unlocked. hope that will happen soon. Thanks for all the responses

    You've got the same set up as me and I'm stuck waiting impatiently.

    Still the MPD24 works good for cue points and Instant Gratification. I also use the knobs to set the volume on the eight individula remix decks, though that isn't quite as smooth as I'd like.
