Traktor S4 Track Preparation Tool by Ean Golden
Description and Instructions
This is a simple mapping design to be used in addition to your core Traktor Kontrol S4 Mapping for track preparation.
- It works on the focused deck
- only the left side of the controller does anything
- the mixer section does not work
- the effects are disabled
- this is intended to be enabled during prep and disabled for live use.
- Transport Preferences need to have Sync Mode set to "BeatSync"
- These controls only work for Deck A
- The controls on the Tempo Reset button for the Kontrol S2 are now on the "Tempo Offset Down" button on the Kontrol S4
- Need to be monitoring via "Phones" jack to hear metronome
- Set Deck Focus in Global Settings to "Software" to easily change focus decks by clicking. Focused deck will be yellow

Hey EAN, the mapping is great! But it does not work for the new S4 MK2, so I duplicated it (or tried my best). Most of it works, however, there is a bug. PLEASE HELP! Download the mapping here: http://www.traktorbible.com/freaks/mappingview.aspx?id=703 Sometimes (but not always) when I press one of the CUES or SHIFT + CUE, it will reset the beat grid in a strange way, with lines that are obviously not on beat. If you look at Ean's video above, he resets the beat grid at 6:29. The way the beatgrid looks is very similar to what happens in my mapping, but it doesn't reset when you set the first beat marker, and you have to re-analyze the song. It's very odd, because I cannot replicate the error. It happens only sometimes when I hit CUE or SHIFT CUE, but not always. For you Traktor mapping wizards, please take a look. Perhaps there's something I'm missing. Thanks, MARQY

Great Tool, I used it a lot on my S2, now I changed to S4 MK2 but when I select the Mapping my S4 is not available to be chosen as Input - does anybody know how I can get it running on the MK2?

Works as expected on my S4, but the jog weel turning simply does not seek position. To make it work i had to increase sensibility and accelleration in the mapping, but this way it seeks too fast and sometimes it go bak instead going on..... TSP 2.6.3 here Really looking forward for a fix cause this really seems "super handy" like Ean said!

For those of you who have problems getting this to work, try disabling the Midi In-Port on the S4 Default mapping (under "Preferences/Controller Manager"). You are not choosing a mapping when you select it in the drop-down list, you are just editing it. As long as the Midi In-Port is set to the S4, that mapping will be in effect. So if you don't set the In-Port for the Default S4 mapping to none... both the Default mapping and Ean's super-awesome mapping will take effect, meaning a whole bunch of weird behavior. Thanks for a great mapping Ean! Saves me hours ;)

How about a version for the VCI-400 EGE
