TRAKTOR PRO 3 FAQ

Nearly all DJ controllers are compatible with TRAKTOR PRO 3. When you're looking to integrate a controller, you have three options:

1. Plug-and-play integration with all Native Instruments DJ controllers:
Native Instruments DJ Controllers have plug-and-play integration via USB. That means no manual setup is required – just plug it in and start mixing.

2. Easy integration with all "TRAKTOR ready" controllers:
Many third-party controllers are "TRAKTOR ready". In this case, you can simply choose your controller in the TRAKTOR setup wizard, and with a few clicks you're ready to go.

3. Manual integration with other DJ controllers:
If your controller is neither "TRAKTOR ready" nor from Native Instruments, look for preconfigured TRAKTOR MIDI mappings (.tsi files) for your controller by searching the web, checking at DJtechtools.com, or Traktorbible.com, or by visiting the manufacturer page of your controller. You can also manually assign all functions you need by using the convenient MIDI learn feature in TRAKTOR PRO 3. Your individual assignments and mappings can then be saved for future use.
