    I've got the controller mapping necessary in order to have manual loop in/out using the rev/flx buttons (see the attached screenshot).

    I'm left wondering how to map loop out + jog wheel turn in order to tighten/loosen the loop out.

    I think what I want is to map the function "Backward Loop Size Select + Set" but I'm unable to learn the jog wheel turn and I can't find anything remotely similar to the jog wheel in the drop down list :/

    Any pointers?

    The command to use is either "loop size select", then you can make it work like the loop knob, or you use the commands "move" + "move mode = loop out" with "move size [value]" and a value equal to the increment size. Sadly the wheel can't be overmapped.

    Thanks for your reply

    "Sadly the wheel can't be overmapped"

    That is sad! Too bad :( Maybe that will change one day -- manual loop out adjustments are so useful!

    Mk1/Mk2 Jog Wheels + mapping override was a major selling point for me. I am also very disappointed. I'm not holding my breath though.

    Hey all.

    I solved this problem by the following... you can customize this according to your taste once you get the idea.

    X deck Set Loop IN: Shift + select deck X + reverse
    X deck Set Loop OUT: Shift + select deck X + flux
    X deck (move) mode selector: Shift + select deck X + push move button <- use this to select Loop in / out
    X deck move: Shift + select deck X + turn move button <- use this to actually adjust the loop length
    X deck (move) size selector: Shift + select deck X + turn loop button <- change how much you want to adjust the loop length

    I am uploading my .tsi file with controller setting (I can't upload .tsi so I added .txt in the end. You should remove it if you want to import).

    Sidenote
    I uploaded this mapping to DJ TechTools
    I am a computer programmer (JVM languages) / aspiring DJ. It would be nice if in the future if I could contribute Traktor PRO software. :)

    I used this and works perfectly. Thank you so much. I didn’t use this feature too often but occasionally I will and it’s essential for me. Thanks again

    Great work.
    I don't understand what the second part of the mapping does, but the in/out mapping works perfectly.

    Hello, is it possible with traktor mk3 to move forward the focus of a track during a loop is playing, in order to when i desactivate the loop the song continue to this new focus ?

    Yes, use the move knob (left kob) of the deck the loop is playing on.
