    Nice Post : ) Can you share the app/tsi file link ?


    Hi Endo,

    The Specs look great for Maschine integration on Traktor pro. Do you have a download link available for TSi file & Maschine configuration file please?

    Cheers,

    Matti

    Hey guys, you can download my Maschine TSI and Controller Editor file (.ncm) at www.djendo.com/traktor . You need to load the controller editor file AND the Maschine .tsi for everything to work correctly. Have fun! - Endo

    Nice new vid you have with the Dell xps and love THE mothership. I have a Dell studio 1558 and love it also! The only issue i still have is when i record, in the recording often there is a loop for a couple of seconds(sounds more like a skip) even i didn't use a loop on the fly. This is very frustrating.

    Thanks! That video was basically made to show that you can use as many controllers as you want with Traktor Pro 2, and have them all run flawlessly on a PC. Here is the video!

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yMwAaTH_VRc"]YouTube - ‪The DJ Mothership: Traktor 2 & NI's Controllers - X1, S4, Maschine‬[/ame]

    I've had that recording bug as well. Make sure that after your done recording, let Traktor analyze the recording and don't unplug anything until its done. I've found that if I get excited and unplug things before Traktors finished analyzing the recording, thats when the issues happen.

    Hey DJEndo, thanks for the tutorials. Absolutely essential as a lot of this stuff isnt in the Tarktor manual.

    Can you please post another beatgridding vid but this time use a track that needs beatgridding so we can see and hear a track being 'beatgrid' from scratch and not one that has already been done. Maybe run through some of the 'pitfalls' of beatgridding?

    Cheers!
