    Tekken’s Kontrol F1 Ultimate Mapping v3.4

    The “Tekken’s Kontrol F1 Ultimate Mapping v3.4” gives you the possibility to control instant press effects, fader effects, the freeze/slicer mode, hotcues, loops and more with your Kontrol F1 controller.

    The mapping can be used beside the default Kontrol F1 Remix Deck mapping and all Remix Deck controls are still available. Change between this mapping and the default F1 mapping with the buttons "Shift" + "Browse" anytime.


    1. If you haven’t Traktor Pro v2.7.0 or newer you have to update your Traktor.

    2. Connect your Kontrol F1 and load the .nckf1 file into the Native Instruments controller editor (not the controller editor inside Traktor): Open the editor and select your F1. Select “File”, then “Open” and select the “Tekken’s Kontrol F1 Ultimate Mapping v3.4.nckf1” file. Make sure that on the “Templates” tab (right side of the controller editor window), “Tekken’s Kontrol F1 Ultimate Mapping v3.4” is selected. Close the controller editor.

    3. Start Traktor and use the BIG “Import” button at the bottom of the Traktor preferences window to load the “Effect Settings v3.4.tsi” into Traktor. It is important to do this import step twice! Otherwise wrong effects are triggered.

    4. In the preferences window, go to “Controller Manager” -> “Add…” -> “Import TST” -> “Import other” and import the file “Tekken’s Kontrol F1 Ultimate Mapping v3.4.tsi”.

    5. Go to “Controller Manager” -> “Device” and click each of the 5 new v3.4 Tekken mappings and check if the “In-Port” and “Out-Port” are set to your Kontrol F1. If there are some older Tekken mappings of a previous installation, delete them (“Edit… -> “Delete”).

    6. At the “Traktor Kontrol F1” tab (on the left side of the preferences window), switch the “MIDI Mode Type” to “MIDI Mode”.

    7. Activate the mapping (see “Usage” below).

    8. If there is a problem with the mapping-installation, try updating your NI controller editor, F1 firmware and drivers.


    After the installation of the mapping or each time after starting Traktor, the F1 default mapping is activated and you can control your Remix Decks as usual. If you want to toggle between the default mapping and the ultimate mapping, press “Shift” + “Browse” simultaneously.

    “Sync” button:
    Press it after installing the mapping the first time or each time after starting Traktor at least once. Also use this button in case of a failure in the mapping to reset modifiers and switch all effects off.

    Switching pages:
    There are 9 pages available. The number of the actual page is indicated in the F1 LED display.
    You can toggle between the “master” page 1 and the “slave” pages 2-9 by pressing the “Shift” button. The slave pages (2-9) can be changed by turning the push encoder. Page 9 hasn’t got any functions yet.

    Deck selection with “Mute” buttons:
    Use the 4 “Mute” buttons at the bottom of the F1 to select the decks you want to affect (from left to right button, deck C A B D). You can select all four decks simultaneously if necessary. After installing the mapping the first time or each time after starting Traktor, press each of the 4 buttons at least once to synchronize the mapping with Traktor.

    Effect pads (page 1+2):

    • Hold the pads to start effects. The Echo Freeze effects start and stop via toggle.
    • While some effects are active, you can press the push encoder to activate special effect features. (Echo Freeze, Reverb T3 and Delay T3 have special effect parameters).
    • Press all four Beatmasher buttons simultaneously to start a Turntable Stop combo (only page 1).
    • Some effects can’t be combined with each other.
    Note that the Traktor Effect Unit 1 is unused in this mapping. You can use Unit 1 with other controllers if you want.

    “Browse” button:

    Press the “Browse” button to toggle between the following 2 functions:

    • If the browse button is off, change the parameters of some effects by turning the push encoder while the effect pad is hold. The Makro-Effects (second row of page 2) need to be building up with this method.
    • If the browse button is on, change the dry/wet of some effects by turning the push encoder while the effect pad is hold.
    “Capture” button:Press the capture button to let the effects stay on after releasing the effect pads. If the capture button is blinking, the “toggle mode” for the effect pads is activated. Press the capture button again to disable all effects.

    “Reverse” button:
    Use this button for a reverse play effect.

    Fader-effects:Slide up one of the 4 faders to start an effect. The Tape delay effect (right Fader) needs to start slowly because of the effect unit needs a second to load the effect. Slide it up about 2 millimeters to load the effect, wait a second and then slide it up furthermore to activate the effect.

    Freeze mode (page 3):Press one of the 16 pads or the push encoder to start the freeze mode of the selected deck. Adjust the freeze slice size by turning the push encoder while holding the “Size” button. Activate or deactivate the freeze mode by pressing the push encoder.

    Loops (page 7):

    Press one of the pads to start or stop a specific loop of the selected deck. Alternately, select the loop size by holding the “Size” button and turning the push encoder. Activate or deactivate the loop by pressing the push encoder.

    “Quant” button:
    While holding the “Quant” button, you can use the following functions:

    • Toggle the flux mode of each deck with the 4 “Mute” buttons (from left to right button, deck C A B D).
    • Delete hotcues by pressing the pads on page 4 and 5.
    • Swap the 4 Makro-Effects of page 2, second row, by turning the 4 knobs. Each of the knobs is selecting one of the effects. Take a look in the effect units to see your selection.
    “Size” button:
    While holding the “Size” button, you can use the following functions:

    • Adjust the Freeze slice size by turning the push encoder on page 3.
    • Adjust the loop length by turning the push encoder on page 7.
    “Type” button (Isolate mode on/off):
    Press the “Type” button to activate the Isolate mode. In this mode apply effects only to specific frequencies (lows / lows+mids / mids / mids+highs / highs) of the selected deck. Only frequencies of the decks A, B or C and only one at a time can be isolated. The selected deck will be duplicated to deck D. That means you shouldn’t use deck D for other purposes as long as you want to use this isolate mode. The frequency can be selected with the right knob at the top end. After starting Traktor, turn it from left to right once to synchronize the knop with the mapping. Then adjust the frequency from left to right in 5 steps (lows / lows+mids / mids / mids+highs / highs). Before starting an effect, the following parameters of the selected deck and deck D should be set equally by yourself: Equalizer, Gain, Key, Filter. The volume fader of the selected deck should be completely up. This isolate mode is only supported by the effect-pads of page 1. If you want to use the fader-effects or the effect-pads of page 2, you have to disable the isolate mode.
    If you want to understand more about the concept of this isolate mode, check this link:

    Please let me know when there is something wrong with the mapping or if you have new ideas for improvements or new effects. And please rate this mapping if you like it!

    I have spent many, hours to build this mapping. Although this mapping will always be free to everyone, you could donate me a beer. Please use the following PayPal link:


    Thank you!

    when you haven't activated the "Type" button you can only control the remix deck loudness and remix deck filters. You can select which remix deck you want to control. are you shure that the faders aren't working?

    Amazing mapping! Is it possible to quickly toggle between this and another mapping (DJ Endo's) quickly while playing live? I'm trying to have transport and cue control along with FX at the same time with just a single F1 if that's possible.

    Thanks! No you can only toggle between my mapping and the default mappping. I'm currently mapping a new version with effects, cue points and transport features. but it will take some time...

    do you know if this can work along with beaubryte's mapping for kontrol s2 mk2? will there be command conflicts inside traktor?

    Yes, it should work! Please test it and report back. Thanks!

    Unfortunately i currently dont have an f1, but i think it will be pretty messy especially with the fx presets being different and all. im asking you because im thinking of buying one, your mapping being the only reason. Also, id like to know if i will be able to load tracks to decks c and d with the f1?

    I'm relativly sure that someone in the comments of my DJTT mapping site confirmed that it is working with the beaubryte mappings. Currently there is no option to load tracks to decks c and d with the f1.

    hey man, have You ever came across thing with corrupted pads 15 and 16 ( deck B's 7th and 8th cue point on page 4 for example) on pages from 3 to 9, that trigger beatmasher if capture isn't blinking?

    edit: Nevermind, I looked into controller menager, there were few lines that addressed that exact behavior, so I just deleted them, now I don't have beatslicer, but at least it ain't corrupting those pads anymore

    Hey Tekken...

    My Macbook recently Died, so I've reinstalled Traktor/a10 etc on a Surface Pro III / Windows 10, Have Tekken'd out one of my F1s again, but now it only works for deck A & B... gets nothing on C & D... like I have another F1 for deck D...
    I have installed it exactly how I did on the Mac...
    Can you think of where I may have gone wrong?

    Does not work for me in 2.10.1, about to try with 2.10.3. When assigning device in the controller manager, the preferences menu crashes back to the decks (or just flat out closes) and also does it every time you change device to assign the f1 to the 5 new devices. Preferences icon stays lit on the deck screen and will not re-open it unless traktor is restarted. Totally fresh install of Windows 10 so the machine is clean.

    Guys is there a way of using freeze mode and loop mode together? I think it sounds cool when the sliced portion is looped like a roll effect but you can quickly jump to different sections. Especially cool for vocals . I have seen it on different mappings just not tekkens. Am i missing something??
