Traktor Pro 2 - MC6000 Advanced Mapping by Altamira

Traktor Pro 2.1.x - MC6000 Advanced Mapping by Altamira - 2Nov2012
- Up to 4 Track Decks
- Up to 2 Sample Decks
- 4 Effects Units
- Loop Recorder
- Loop Move
- Plus lots of other nice features

This Denon MC6000 configuration was made with the goal to fully utilize the features of Traktor Pro 2. Its supports Track Decks on Deck A and B, and Remix/Sample Decks or Track Decks on Deck C and D. With this mapping, when Traktor’s Deck C or D is in sample mode, most Remix/Sample decks controls are accessed without having to use DECK CHG. This reduces confusion by eliminating the need to change the controllers focus to use sample deck features and risk interrupting the DJ’s attention on the main track decks (A and B). This configuration also fully supports switching either or both Deck C and D to Track Mode for full function 3 or 4 deck operation.
The configuration uses sequenced compound modifiers to change and lock the controller decks into many specialty control states that use an entire deck to control special functions including: 8 individual sample decks, the Loop Recorder, the Loop Move functions and the 3rd and 4th Effects Units.

Update 2Nov2012: Minor Update for Traktor Pro 2 Ver 2.6: New Flux Mode, Auto Gain Control

There is no need to use this update unless you have upgraded Traktor Pro 2 to Ver 2.5

If you are using Traktor Pro 2.1.x, use the included TP2-2.1x 17Feb2012 version

If you are using Traktor Pro 2.0.x, use the included TP2-2.0x 13Jul2011 version

Unless I am misunderstanding your naming convention (outside sliders?), it is already mapped that way. These sliders are also used for individual sample deck volume when sample deck modifiers are active. Email me if you need more help.

 Altamira replies
SHIFT+SAMP.n+SEL+LOAD A/B - Forgive the complex sequence (SHIFT+SAMP.n) is the modifier to select the Samp deck, and SEL Modifies LOAD to UNLOAD. Loading a sample from a file or the Loop Recorder replaces the sample and does not require UNLOAD.

 Altamira replies
Thanks for your interest. I like your observations and comments on the Denon Forum. To add the multi-state deck level indication, an additional modifier(s) is needed, but all are currently used. Send me an e-mail and I can give some options.

Please be sure that you have upgraded Traktor to Ver 2.1.x. If you are using 2.0.x, use the included 19Jul2011 version of the tsi. The jog wheel will not work right when the 2.1.x tsi is used with Traktor 2.0.x

This is does not have to do with the mapping. I suspect that you are using external mixing and trying to record with the internal option. If so, use external in the Rec options and set the switch on the MC6000 rear to rec/mic.

If a channels input select knob is set to anything other than MIDI, the MC6000 hardware disables midi control for that channels mixer section, including the monitor cue buttons, so no MIDI input or output is possible from the computer and Traktor.

To use the mapping to change a sample one shot/loop focus must be on Deck A/B(blue), then use SHIFT + SAMP.n(green) + LOOP IN/LOOP OUT. Many of the Sample Deck functions need the SHIFT+SAMP.n modifier in order to use buttons that are normally used for ma
