Summary:

This is a major rework of the most popular AKAI AMX mapping for Traktor, originally made by Stewe for TP2.

Many thanks for the amazing base work and inspiration!

 

The biggest additions are MixerFX, MacroFX, Resonant Filter, Filter Roll, Preview player, Slip Reverse and UserFX.

Other features are BeatJump, Full Tempo control, Beatgrid, deck toggle, deck zoom, layout select.

The original mapping from Stewe already included really advanced features like 6x HotCues, 5x PadFX, Loops, a Beatmasher combo, and 4x decks.

 

To start the mapping, press the MAIN SHIFT button when all lights are “on”.

The below pictures and video explain the mapping functions in great detail.

 

Compatibility:

This mapping was tested in both TP2 and TP3.

The TP3-specific functions are in separate key combinations (to not replace any TP2 functions).

 

Installation Instructions:

VERY IMPORTANT: YOU NEED TO IMPORT THE TSI TWICE FOR THE FX LIST TO BE CORRECT! (this is a Traktor bug)

Please use the big "import" button on the lower left corner of the settings.

Then go to settings / Controller Manager / Device / Select AMX for IN+OUT-PORT. Repeat to all pages of the mapping.

Comments for v1.0.0
dj_Duff 3 months ago
Could you please explain a little more howto import this mapping? There is installation guide under folder "v0.2.0 Support\Installation step-by-step (v0.2.0)", but it is outdated. When i import the tsi, which settings categories should be included? After import is done, under "Controller setup" there are 6 new devices: AMX #1 - main page AMX #2 - preview page AMX #3 - MFX AMX #4 - USER FX AMX #5 - Beatgrid AMX #9 - TP3 I selected in and out port for all these devices as AMX, but only crossfader works, nothing more :( It seems that i am missing some steps, could you help, please?
pedro 3 months ago

Quick answer: are all buttons light up? Please press the main shift button once to initialize the mapping to deck 1 and 2. Regarding device selection: i made this mapping in windows and left it in “all devices”. That is the most generic way. In macos you might need to select ‘amx’ in each of the 6x controller subpages. If you still have problems please post a video for me to help further The v0.2.0 documentation steps is accurate, except that its now more options categories, and its now 6x sub-pages Generic turorial on loading mappings: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Jw8VyzPrlQ

Cool! Yes, everything is fine, i forgot to press SHIFT to initiate the mapping :) Spent some tie enjoying Traktor with it! Plus my DVS is working awesome on Traktor 3.1 wih AMX. Awesome work! Two things i found so far: When i try to do "Tempro set (dvs + shift + other gain) - it works, but if i accidentaly press buttons in other sequence : shift + dvs + other gain, it goes to some mode (i am thinking it is BeatGrid mode) and i can't exit from it back to normal mode. What should I press? Also, i have parallel waveforms enabled (new feature of Traktor Pro 3.1), and in this BeatGrid mode if I press play, desk setup changes from Parallel Waveforms to Advanced.

pedro 2 months ago

the way to initialize the mapping is actually a lot easier now than in v0.2.0, where you would have to manually select the decks. Having an explicit init step also forces all faders to be down, preventing 4-deck disasters :) --- regarding tempo change: please see page 25 of the overview pdf. The moment you press M_shift + left DVS you enter beatgrid mode for the left side of the controller. This is identified by all left lights being ON. to exit beatgrid, just toggle the decks using L_DVS + M_SHIFT + LOAD (page 12 of the overview). regarding parallel waveforms: I don't use them, so did not test it. Some functions conveniently change the layout for you (toggle decks, sampler, etc). Will test that with parallel waves on the next release. ps: any more feedback, keep it coming! I'm so used to the mapping that I need fresh users like you to show me some key combinations like that could be simplified

pedro about 1 month ago

Did it worked for you? Do you have any feedback on the mapping?
