    Default Using analog gear with my setup

    I'd like to hook up my korg kaoss pad with my s4. I'm looking to buy in the very near future, a korg electribe, and would like to use that also.

    I'm just confused as to how I'd be able to use them!

    I tried a google search online, but couldn't find anything.

    I'm thinking I would need another mixer, just to hook up the analog gear right?


    Thanks for the help!

    Probably, one with a send/return option for fx.

    Use NI's live instrument as one of the decks for the electribe. you can use send and returns inside of Traktor as well providing you use a soundcard with enough outputs...

    Would I connect it through a midi cable?

    I have that setup.
    I use deck 4's input for the drum machine. and the s4's output into the kaoss pad.
    Set traktor to send a midi signal into the drum machine and the midi out on the drum machine into the kaoss pad.

    So how would I apply the effects fr the Kaoss pad to the tracks in traktor? Would o have control over which tracks get the effect?

    You can't apply an effect for a single track... With the s4 you can only put the kaosspad between the s4 and the mixer/monitors and effect the master out.. For doing what you want you need an external mixer setup with a "real" mixer with send/return In and Out...

    Neither of those things are 'analog'.

    You simply mean hardware.

    Youll need a mixer if you want to avoid the latency caused by the computer converting digital to audio to send to the kaoss pad, then audio to digital back into the S4, and then finally digital to audio once more out your speakers.

    A mixer allows you to send the sound to the Kaoss pad in real time. This is especially important if you want to use delays or reverb.

    So, how would I go about doing this? Would I need to get a live mixer, not a dj mixer?

    I'd like to be able to control, songs individually, and not the master.

    You just need a dj mixer that has a send/receive loop, with a dry/wet send control for each channel.
