Hi. I loaded presets and tsi file and my Traktor stoped to see LPD8 (no ctrl blik in trktr). Any tips? Thx in advance!

I assume there's a problem with the mapping and your traktor version. Don't forget it's been made for traktor 2.1.x (we're currently at the 2.7.3). Bests.

Good mapping. Where can i find the information exactly on how to bind cue-points or other functions to bank4, for example. Just any guide you know. Thankz! =)

eey i have made mappings for the vms and for the bcd 3000 and never had problems with the leds XD. but when i fiddled with this little toy i couldnt get the lights working like i want them to work. i downloaded your mapping had a quick look and tried it out. the lights are working. tell me your secret! XD how did you get them to stay on when something is selected?

In fact, pressing a button let the light show the main level btutton or turn it down. That was the only way I found to launch remanent light on that device.

How do i load the presets? I can't figure out how to load them in traktor?
Just Friday over 9 years ago

Check this package : https://maps.djtechtools.com/mappings/715 You have to load the presets in the akai lpd8 utility. Then load the mapping in traktor (using the BIG EXPORT)

Hi,I have been looking for mapping solutions for so long , you really seem to know what and how to do this,I was hoping for some quite simple help, mapping my LPD8 to traktor pro2 just mainly for effects as I have a Mixtrackpro,any suggestions.By the way I have to say Im blown away by your mappings..brilliance!..J

Don't know what you exactly need... Do you need instant gratification mappings? superknobs ? mimicking traktor's FX slots behaviour ? Each situation is different, and leads to a different way of mapping it... So explain me your need and I'll help you the best I can. You can pm me there : https://www.facebook.com/justfriday Keep in touch!

Hi Just Friday...I think what I would need is to try and map to sample decks on pro2.1.1, I am so new to this..any suggestions?

Hey just friday. Thanks a lot for the information on how to load the presets it really helped. for some reason tho i can't use any of the functions mapped on the CC's. for some reason it acts like an EQ kill when i press the pads in CC mode. Would be really grateful for any help. Thanks man
