    Can anyone please help me?

    The harmonic mixing update won't work for me as it will not colour any of the keys unless I choose the "colour all keys" option. As you can see from the screenshots I have the track playing on "master" so I am unsure why it is not working...

    Please let me know as I would love to use this feature but I just can't quite get it to work.

    Thank you!!

    Looks like "Keylock" isn't enabled in your photos. Go ahead and click on "Key" right above the headphone icon on both decks and see if that works

    ...which is a silly requirement! So I can't mix harmonically, unless I use keylock?!

    Off coarse you can mix harmonically without your keylock on. Then you need to figure out yourself which key(s) match your current track. Only for the function (i.e. showing the coloured keys of the matching tracks) to work you need to use the keylock.

    I'm aware of that. I was merely commenting on NI's mindset.

    It is very logic you need to have the keylock on. When your track is playing without the keylock on, the moment you change the tempo the pitch of the track changes. If at this moment you want to find another track to match Traktor would need to analyse the current key of the track playing.

    If you play, let's say, drum and bass, where most of the tracks are within the range of 172-175 BPM, the issue is irrelevant, because changing the tempo of all tracks by around 4% will lead to similar change in key, so the key relation stays almost the same in every circumstance.

    Are you sure you have the right topic? Which pad do you mean?
