Kontrol S2 MK2 for Djay by Algoriddim
Description and Instructions
A very basic set up with Algoriddim's Djay Pro (Mac) plus some other really cool features.
Most mapping is the same as a basic Traktor set up with a few exceptions
1. Gain is only gain and no filter (haven't found a way to make this work yet)
2. Flux mode (Slip mode in djay) only good for scratching but not for using cues/loops
3. Sample decks/sampler buttons not recognized to be mapped (found a way around it)
4. Main level wasn't being recognized (I found a "way around it"...It's now the remix level knob)
Those are just some of the things I could find that were different or just giving me problems.

Now for some of the fun stuff!
Just about all controls work the same as you would expect them!
Cues, Loops, Grids, EQ's, monitoring cues, gain, faders, flux mode, jog wheels, sync (although I couldn't find a master tempo mapping)
-Button will turn off all FX for that deck and will control dry/wet for all FX simultaneously for that deck
-Each FX knob will increase/decrease parameter for selected effect
-FX button 1(bellow Gain knob): Instant FX Crush (Bitcrusher)-FX button 2(bellow Gain knob): Twist-Shift+tempo fader=Pitch-Shift+grid knob (twist)=Fine adjust tempo-Shift+grid knob (button)=Reset tempo-Shift+loop size knob (twist)=Jog seek (I honestly had no idea what to make it...)-Shift+loop size knob (button)=Reset pitch
Extra Shift button-FX button 1(bellow Gain knob): Instant FX Punch-FX button 2(bellow Gain knob): Instant FX Absorb-Shift+grid knob (twist)=Fine adjust tempo-Shift+grid knob (button)=Reset tempo-Shift+loop size knob (twist)=Jog seek-Shift+loop size knob (button)=Reset pitch
While messing around, I found, what appeared to be, an extra Shift button in the mapping and found an array of other functions I could add, so here's what I did
Left shift followed by left flux (one handed):
-Use cue buttons for samplesDeck 1 is left sample 1,2,3,4 in that orderDeck 2 is right sample 1,2,3,4 in that order-Use top FX buttons for Bounce Loop (loops "with flux mode")
Dry/Wet: 2FX 1: 1FX 2: 1/2FX 3: 1/4Button 1: 1/8Button 2: 1/16-Deck 2:
Button 1: 1/16Button 2: 1/8Dry/Wet: 1/4FX 1: 1/2FX 2: 1FX 3: 2
-Load knob works as volume for all samples
-Other Deck specific functions
Loop In: Clear start point
Loop Out: Clear end point
Cue: Reset all cue points
Loop In: Clear start pointLoop Out: Clear end pointCue: Reset all cue pointsJog FX:
Yes, there is a way! Definitely different than anything you've seen in Traktor though. There is no way of starting an effect at a certain parameter and have it go up/down at a specific rate, etc. Everything goes up at the same rate, at the same time and effects have to be set by hand. No pre made effects.
ANY FEEDBACK AND RATING IS VERY MUCH APPRECIATED!!! Thank you and I hope you enjoy it as much as I've enjoyed tweaking it!

Somehow the shift knob is not working with that mapping. I can't reset any cuepoints
