TraktorPro2 Sample Deck Mapping for Korg Nano Kontrol (Decks 3 & 4)

Control Sample Decks 3 & 4 using your Korg Nano Kontrol. 3 Scenes are used.

Original Blog post here:

I had to end up using two channels on the Korg Nano Kontrol for a Sample Deck Slot in Traktor to get enough of the controls I wanted to tweak up font. That meant I required 2 Scenes for Deck 3 and then Deck 4. I suppose I could do some sort of lighter or basic mapping on Scene 4 as it is currently unused at the moment to fit both Sample Decks 3 and 4 .

Sample Deck Controls.
Scene 1 and 2 Control Sample Deck 3 and 4 Respectively.
Channels 1 & 2 on the Korg Nano Kontrol affect Sample Slot 1,
Channels 3 & 4, Sample Slot 2
Channels 5 & 6, Sample Slot 3
Channels 7 & 8, Sample Slot 4

Filter Sweep
Sample Start/Stop
Loop/1 Shot Mode
Loop Length Double
Loop Length Half
Loop Length Reset

A TSI and 2 page PDF explain the mapping are contained in the Zip.
The Korg's Preset is the default mapping shipped from the factor, I did not alter any of the midi mappings using the Korg Editor at all.

Channel 9, Loop Recorder
Loop Length
Dry/Wet Mix
Start/Stop of Looper
Record Loop

On the Korg Nano Kontrol’s Global Transport buttons, I mapped ‘Forward’ and ‘Record’ to Sample Deck 3 Group Play/Stop and Sample Deck 4 Group Play/Stop. These are available across any scene (1-4).

Scene 3, Clear and Load Samples and Filter On/Off
Each Channel represents one Deck's Sample Slot. Deck 3 Slots 1-4 and Deck 4 Slots 1-4

Filter On/Off
Store Loop In Slot
Clear Loop
Copy From Loop Recorder

Let me know if there are any issues and I welcome any sort of feedback. Any ideas for Scene 4, I may consider to implement.

I must be so dumb. How do you go from one scene to the next one? Im gonna get the vci 100 and have been looking at a controller to nail the sample decks. I wanna be able to play the samples, stop them, use filters, volume and copy loops into sample decks.

Press the dedicated 'Scene' button on the Nano Kontrol. Cycles through scenes 1-4 sequentially. My mapping takes care of all those items on your list. bb®

HI, Awesome job with the mapping. Any idea how to use it with the Reloop Digital Jockey 2. Interface Edition? As both midi maps clash.

Hey Gavgav.... I'm not familiar with the Reloop controller at all. I think of 1 thing you may have to do. The Korg Nano Kontrol has an controller editor. Determine which control on the korg is in conflict with your Reloop. You'll most likely need to edit

.... It may take a bit of trial and error to get it right. Also it may be easier to tweak the Reloop device, but for all I know, the Reloop may have have fixed Midi Controller mappings affixed to each physical control on that unit. At least with the Korg,

you can modify the controller values and find something that will no longer conflict with the Reloop. Another thought may be to edit the Korg to send on a different MIDI Channel from the Reloop.
