    Default Step Sequencer in Traktor (with Remix Decks)



    old prototype


    One of my "dream' routines is to mix tracks and live percussive loops in a Richie Hawtin/Chris Liebing style, but to do so it would mean syncing Ableton with Traktor (or using just Ableton), my answer to this was something that Native Instruments should have done with the Kontrol F1 in the first place, a step sequencer. Static loops can get quite boring after a while compared to the ability to rhythmically modify them in real time.
    Here I present you the best of two worlds.
    With the latest Traktor 2.6.2 update I was able to MIDI sync and MIDI map each channel to a Remix Deck slot. Of course the sequencer itself is hard coded into the controller.

    What do you think about all this? Maschine and Push are great, but if they wasn't so damn expensive.. They definitely should integrate this into Traktor, way much more fun!

    edit:

    this project evolved and now with more advanced features like 16 voice 32-step sequencer with 64 uneque patterns permanently stored on the device. it is completely open source and i still have a very limited number of devices available for sale at the projects website http://digitalwarrior.co/

    That is very cool , that needs to be included in Traktor , well done mix as well . Dd you make the mixer and sequencer yourself.

    Thank you! Yes, here is a thread on that controller, http://forum.djtechtools.com/showthread.php?t=73070
    the mixer thing is a 4x4 knob controller I'm currently working on for the FX racks.

    I saw the other thread about you building your controller, and after seeing this video I thought I had to give you a tip of the hat. Creative minds like yours are really doing great things in the controller/digital dj world.

    Pretty impressive little controller you made there. I totally respect that!

    Back in v2.1.7 (thinks) I managed to achieve a mapping for the step sequencer in Traktor using old BCD but it required looping MIDI and one deck to always being on play to keep modifier loop and the whole engine running which didn't make it ideal solution. Bud it worked

    Agreed. In fact there is many requests for the SS in Traktor already - people call it a machine deck but using a concept you have showed here the remix deck shows up as powerful and NI should just need to add a sequencer option probably as another deck flavor. I can already see an integration for maschine coming next so lets hope if they add this SS functionality it wont be locked for Maschine only.

    Amazing work there! I could see them implementing a step sequencer like this in the future, hopefully with a 64 pad f4 controller!
