Livid BASE 4 Track Deck Mapping

Description and Instructions

Features:

-Double Deck Focus
-Transport control (cue,play,band,sync,loop,flux,key,deck master,deck flavor,loop size,beatjump +more)
-Mixer
-Browser
-Full LED feedback

This mapping will split your BASE controller in to two sections - it's powered by Double Deck Focus which basically allow a user to select and control any of four decks from both of the focuses. I came up with this creation since I found the actual A/C and B/D deck switching concept pretty limiting in my 4 deck mixing.

The shift button (side button 8) is universal and works with both left and right focus at a time. Please see an image above to make sure which controls are available in shifted layer (presented in right section). All shift connected controls are color marked in magneta.

One line fader and 3 band EQ are mapped to follow deck selector and since each touch strip has a LED indication the unit will easily display the value of each control when you select any other deck. Use shift and a button above any EQ band to kill that frequency and secondary LED will display the state in red color. Adding this second LED in each top button is awesome idea.

The side buttons 1-7 are your browser area and image should let you know what's up. I can eventually add that shift plus load deck buttons will unload any of selected decks.

Installation:

First thing, make sure your BASE controller is in default settings and all massages are transmitting in MIDI channel 1 because this mapping is communicating with BASE in that channel. This can be insured if your unit shows up value '01' in dual segment display and if not just go ahead and use Livid online editor software to reset unit to defaults and send settings to controller's MIDI brain. It's super easy.

Second, download and unzip the file. You should get the actual TSI file and control layout JPG to help you start. Import mapping to Traktor, select a deck for individual focus and enjoy.

Hi my question is whether there is a combination of mapping in this way to 2 Track Deck A- B and Remix Deck C.D???

I have another question, I always experience little lags when hiting the shift key. i also needed to desactivate the beat phase on "loaded decks" buttons because it made my Traktor lag too much. Do you know what could cause this ? I can't figure out if it is USB, MIDI, Base or latency (I tried few settings and put my latency to 10 ms, its better but still laggy. If I put it to 20 ms its a bit better still laggy and the sound screw up on every each application like winamp, games , videos and all).

What Traktor version do you run and what's your computer spec? I've started experiencing such issues with my controllers other than Livid after updating to 2.6.6 version.

Traktor 2.6.6, I upgraded to the last (2.6.7 i guess) and it was similar. So I followed this topic : http://www.native-instruments.com/en/support/knowledge-base/show/752/ I found out it was my USB 3.0 ! I changed de places of my devices (like some on 2.0 and others on 3.0) and now its almost all good. i lost a day trying every combination possible haha

Hello Stewe. Do you recommend any Base hardare setting for the use of your mappings? i.e. for the "faders", do you stick to the default fine+abs or do you use precision?

Hey there. I'm using precision for my fader settings.

DJTTSux over 5 years ago

Thanks for your answer :) I also ended up using precision.on faders. Btw I'm on my way to improve this mapping. I loved the 2 parts focus, so I'm trying to add some features you didnt include. I will post this soon.
