    It’s already in the latest update, there’s a toggleable ‘beats’ box which is displayed between the time and loop box. The value of the bpm box and beats box have options to alternate the default display values :)

    joe: It would be nice to have the additional deck stats for the remix decks as well. The screens feel so naked and raw without them. ^^

    I haven’t yet touched on remix or stem deck layouts yet purely because I don’t use them during sets. There isn’t much more left that can actually be added to the track deck screen apart from browser and moving waveforms due to the size of the screens, unless anybody has any ideas?

    What sort of changes would you like to be added to the remix decks?

    After several attempts to contact NI I have had no reply sadly so I will have to figure it out myself, it will take time but I won’t stop until it’s done as I want it for my needs as well haha

    Btw the browse mod, need to show browse view of the current playlist on the screen, right? On the player that had the browse button clicked?

    That is correct! Due to the S4 only outputting for all decks when viewing the browser view on screen, it will have to be the same on the controller (browser is displayed on both screens).

    hopefully some workaround exists, but either way, it will be so useful. even if it's shown on both screens during the browse mode.
    I can't understand how NI didn't contact you yet, I mean.. they should pay you :) :) :) you made their product better

    I just resent my original email, it’s been sent to the workplace team this time instead of customer services, might be getting somewhere if they reply :)

    That's beautiful! Thanks a lot!

    Apart from moving waveform and browser I have only one more kind request - FX parameter/names. Values aren't needed to be shown, as the FX knobs indicate them. However, displaying FX names in group mode and parameters in single mode would allow to use and change FX without looking at the laptop screen.

    As seen below (just the names): [​IMG]

    Edit: oh, and it would be nice if one could change the font color in the track header. Options for black and white would be enough, as black font on a e.g. blue background is hard to see.

    Sadly due to the width of the screens it would be difficult to display even 4 different effects. I could possibly have it at an overlay that appears at the bottom of the screen when knobs are moved. I think the S8 does it the same as this but I’m not 100% as I haven’t used one.

    This is some great work! I was using the 0,5 mod for a while and just updated to 0.8.1. Excellent stuff! This should totally become an official thing. Those screens are so powerful and the original traktor display doesn't do it justice.

    As for bugs, I have noticed I can't use this at the club- with my combination of Traktor 3.1.1, S4MK3 on 0.6.0 firmware and a Windows PC i7 8th Gen 8GB RAM. I get a lot of 'LOAD' spikes. These totally disappear once I revert to the original qml. So, I hope you can find something that may be causing that in your next updates.

    Carry on the good work and thank you!:thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Hmmm, interesting... I will take a look at some of the code to try and figure why this may be, obviously there is slightly more going on in the background but nothing that should be too CPU heavy.

    Beta v0.8.1 combined with the latest Traktor update does not show the key on the screen. The key colour works fine though. I don't know if Beta v0.9 has corrected this already.
