    Just updated the mapping to version 0.9.7; fixed the filter and gain knob issues bascurtiz brought up, along with adding the ability to use flux mode on any deck. To toggle flux, simply hold down the "shift" button and push the Headphone cue for respective deck - the deck will then have flux mode on. You must hold down the "shift" to see LED output on deck's button.

    Just posted another updated version (0.9.8) of the mapping, changing only a minor thing controller-wise, but adding a lot of personal touch with the grace of bascurtis.

    1. Swapped the positions of the Shift and sync function buttons on decks B/D to create a more symmetric mapping (i.e. Deck B's SET/CLR = Shift and ADJUST/SLIP = SYNC (Thanks to Bas Curtiz for the suggestion).

    2. All guides have been updated to show the past few changes.

    3. Something I am very humbled and ecstatic about; bascurtiz created some slick mapping overlays for the Twitch so you need not memorize the mapping as much. His layouts are included in the recent update at https://maps.djtechtools.com/mappings/1383 in a .rar file that contains the pictures for printing and the Photoshop files of the templates when you decide to want to change something in the mapping for a more personal touch (the .rar also has the updated guides as well and an example of the layouts).

    Finally, here is the list of instructions provided by bascurtiz to assemble his layovers into the finished product shown here: Centripetal-Novation-Twitch-overlay-example EDIT.jpg

    Such paper is sticky by itself, which is a plus! Easy replaceable, doesn't leave paper/glue marks, etc.

    I played a bit which colors do catch the eye best, so replaced the green shift functions with more vivid yellow, for example.

    Cutted out the print with a Stanley knife, like this:

    And used a ruler to be precise, like this:

    And ofcourse a cutting mat underneath, like this:

    As a finishing touch, I used a black marker to mark the edges that were cutted, like this:

    Thanks once again for the support and advice for this mapping; don't let it stop!! It's been progressively becoming better and better!

    And a MASSIVE thanks to bascurtiz for doing some excellent work on the layovers that add a lovely personal, ergonomic, and diverse touch to the mapping!

    Hi,

    I've been sticking to ITCH because I don't use my twitch very often. It usually lies around collecting dust since I have a timecode setup to use normally.

    However I busted it out today and downloaded your mapping and started to play around a bit. I have never used my twitch with Traktor before today.

    Liking it so far. One thing I have noticed is that the output volume is slightly higher coming out of traktor compared to ITCH. Even though I have -3db headroom in Traktor vs 0db headroom in ITCH. This is something I noticed when I first got the twitch and playing music through it using itunes was louder than ITCH. If I turned off the headroom option in traktor it would be much louder than ITCH.

    I can honestly say that if I continue using the twitch with traktor, output issues will not be so bad.

    I haven't explored all the options and things yet but is there a way to make the track scroll backwards and forwards with a swipe?

    Thanks a lot! Glad you are enjoying it

    Huh, that's an interesting side effect. Regardless, I'm assuming you've played the Twitch with some sort of speakers or master output; you need all the output you can get with the Twitch if you are just using the master out and not combining it with the booth out or using a preamp.

    Yes there is a way to do so! If you are not playing a deck, you can use the touchstrips to scratch through a song (the touchstrips act as pitch bends when a deck is playing); if you want more movement per swipe, you can change the mapped control's sensitivity to a higher value. If you need to move through a track during play, you can use the KEYLOCK and SYNC/AUTO to beatjump backwards or forwards (respectively).

    Just watched your video, ur mapping looks amazing....
    I've just bought a twitch for the 2nd time and looking forward to using ur mapping on it...

    I have one suggestion/request tho

    Whilst in SHIFT mode could you possibly map the browse section to operate the loop recorder???

    Thanks in advance

    Hey
    Looks like a great mapping.
    Is there any chance of having the loop recorder mapped to the SHIFT browse controls?

    My twitch has been collecting dust since I switched to CDJs, but I might have to dig it out just to give this mapping a go, looks great.

    First of all, thanks for sharing this mapping, I know how a tedious and frustrating work it can be until a mapping is done.
    I got my Twitch yesterday and I use this "Versatile Novation Twitch Mapping" as basic for my own mapping.
    (Tried a few other as well, but it seems this one fits most my own 'Workflow', so I don't need to change that much.)

    My own mapping is still work in progress, but I want share one thing here already:
    I mapped the 'Track End Warning' to the play-button, meaning: it turns red when in Traktor flashes the 'Track End Warning'.
    I wanted the button to flash in red as well, but Traktor sends only a on/off Message for this event, so flashing is not possible.
    Here the settings to get this done for Deck A
