    You can create a tempo adjust ment midi-loop that runs in ableton. the midi loop sends a very short pitch bend command to traktor via midi bus on the mac. I use this to keep traktor in time with ableton while ableton is syncing to traktor .. it really works.

    Ok, that is good, but why does TS audio stop sometimes, I have to unplug teh A8DJ and re-plug it back again to make get the sounds again from TS.

    i don't know. ... I don't use A8 i use a motu traveler and or the stock sound card in the mac. i don't have problems with this the traveler out puts stack programs without any problems. However if I hot plug a digital stream and cause a sample rate change or disruption of clock source I will get failure of ableton and or traktor.

    @ loadammo : im confused about exactly what you are doing in the video. In my minds eye: From your video i can understand that you are playing back a loop(s) in LIVE -- and then scratching against the audio(from live) with a dvs system?

    Please elaborate.

    Close. The red bars are triggering MIDI which drives a sampler, when it latches the sampler plays back at the speed that the record is moving forward or backward.

    still .. my brain is just blank when You described it. -- 'latches'? the sampler you have described is creating the scratch playback or the loop playback.. .. i just haven't the slightest how this is functioning.. and Im usually pretty addept at understanding things of this nature.. I would actually say that nothing has ever gone beyond me. help.//..
