    Yeah, sorry to pile on, and I am reading the manual while typing this, but I got a replacement X1 and the new one (with default mapping) no longer controls the effects on either deck (TP2 Pro, latest), OSX Lion, even with all the FX switches toggled to on. I see nothing in the settings indicating how to instruct the X1 to control the effects units. I am duh. Help. :(

    PS - I should add that the FX Assign indicators in the mixer strips do NOT light up when I select FX1 or FX 2 on either deck on the X1, although the lights on the X1 for these DO light up.

    you can map it for yourself.

    traktorbible gives really good inspiration.
    www.traktorbible.com has many user mappings for the X1

    While I appreciate that I can do my own mappings, the problem I have is that the FX on buttons are greyed out - I can't even turn them on with a mouse click, even though the X1 is attached and otherwise controls TP2 perfectly. Unfortunately, I mostly use it for effects, which kinda defeats the purpose. What am I missing here?

    you have your fx configured as send, change that in the effect menu inside the preferences
