Note on PAD FX:

-Each deck uses 2 FX Units which means that you can control effects on Decks A and C impenitently from Decks B and D.

-The Echo Freeze button have built in fail/safe setting - once it is activated, the mapping will prevent you from selecting an other Deck or a Pad Mode until you de-activate the Echo Freeze button first. This way you won't have to think about whether you activated it or not. And avoid disasters in your mixes by not letting it remain activated while selecting other Deck or a Pad Mode.

-Top four fx buttons are extension of a PAD FX. Use them in combination with pads for more instant grat effect controls.
Press a button to activate effects and keep it held down to modulate fx parameters automatically.


Download and unzip the file. Inside you should see one folder with mapping content. It is strongly recommended to back up all your current mappings and effect settings in the Controller Manager before importing this one because those will be overwritten in the step 2! And be aware that there is no undo.  

1). Start Traktor and click the gear symbol to open the preferences window. Click the BIG IMPORT button which is located at the bottom of the preferences window and then navigate to the folder where the .tsi file is saved. Once you select the .tsi and click on OK the next window will pop-up asking you which settings do you wish to import - ONLY the "controller mappings" and the "effect settings' categories should be selected - then click on OK. Please note that you need to repeat this step one more time to successfully import the FX settings. (this only matters if you're installing this mapping for the first time)

 Go into the Controller Manager's upper-right corner and make sure that the In-Port is set to your Kontrol S4 MK3 hardware.
If you want to add more controller mappings next to this one be sure to use smaller Import button which is located under Device Setup: Add > Import TSI > Import Other.

This mapping is awesome !!! your a legend , how di you make the Echo Freeze button have built in fail/safe setting like once it is activated, the mapping will prevent you from selecting an other Deck or a Pad Mode until you de-activate the Echo Freeze button first ?? also how did you get the tape delay to work I have trouble where it won't activate constantly each time I press it if that has ever happened to you ?

I'm glad you like it! For Echo Freeze I used modifiers 2 and 6 - when either is set to value 7 all other buttons also does M=7 when pressed and therefor no changes.. For Delay I used Ramp Delay (not tape). The tape Delay has this silly buffer setting.
