Native Instruments released a free update to Traktor, introducing new Maschine mappings for Traktor’s remix decks!
Native Instruments released Traktor Pro 2.6.6, a free update for Traktor Pro 2 owners, which introduces new Maschine mappings for Traktor’s remix decks. In this tutorial, we show how to set up and use these Maschine mappings using Controller Editor and Traktor Pro’s newer, cleaner, and easier controller manager. We also compare and contrast using these new Maschine mappings with using Native Instruments’ Traktor Kontrol F1, a dedicated controller for one remix deck.
These new Maschine mappings control two remix decks at once, as opposed to a single remix like the Traktor Kontrol F1. While they do not provide full colour feedback like the Kontrol F1, the group buttons flash while samples are playing, and the pads are dimmed where no samples are loaded, providing limited visual feedback, and Maschine’s screens provide a lot of useful visual feedback.
