Traktor Pro 2 – Midi Mapping SYNQ DMC2000

Traktor Pro 2 – Midi Mapping SYNQ DMC2000
Traktor Pro 2 – Midi Mapping SYNQ DMC2000
(BASIC VERSION) 2 Track Deck + 2 Sampler Deck
IMPORTANT NOTICE
BEFORE YOU START: check which version of TRAKTOR you have!
 Traktor mappings can ONLY be used with TRAKTOR PRO, not with other
versions of Traktor like for example LE-versions.
 For TRAKTOR1 and TRAKTOR2 we provide different mappings to assure 100%
compatibility: be sure to use the mappings for the correct version!
For advanced users we also have an extended mapping. The extended mapping controls
almost all TRAKTOR-functions but is more difficult to use for inexperienced users.
No support for the use of these mappings is provided by Synq Audio. For more information
on the TRAKTOR functions, please check the forum:

INSTALLATION AND USERS MANUAL
Depending if you want to use the mixer as 'external' or 'internal' (midi
mapped) mixer, 'Mixer Mode' in the controller menu setup
(see DMC2000 Operation Manual), is set to:
'3. Mixer Mode = No Midi' (= using the mixer in 'external' mode)
or
'3. Mixer Mode = Midi' (= using the mixer in 'internal' mode (midi
mapped))
For controlling TRAKTOR2 PRO, set Deck/MIDI switches to 'MIDI' on the DMC2000

EXTERNAL MIXER
If you want to use the DMC-2000 to mix audio seamlessly from different sources
(TRAKTOR + internal USB-players + external inputs (CD-player of Turntable) at the
same time: you must use the internal digital mixer of the DMC-2000 to mix the signals.
In this case the internal mixer of TRAKTOR will NOT be used! (so it will not receive
MIDI-messages from the DMC-2000.
 Set the Mixer Mode (option 3) in the setup menu of the DMC-2000 to 'NO MIDI'
 Set the output routing in the TRAKTOR preferences to EXTERNAL mixer.

Effects setup (Preferences):
STEP 3.4 (Mixer)
When Mixer Mode was set to 'NO MIDI' (external mixer), it is advisable to uncheck 'EQ +
Fader in the Mixer menu:
(EQ + Fader are not used in TRAKTOR2 PRO in external mixing mode, so no need for them to be on screen)

Delete current midi settings and import the DMC2000 midi map:
Don't worry, deleting (removing) the current midi mapping won't actually delete the
mapping from your computer, it will only be removed from the Traktor IO list
(Repeat this for al the mappings so there are no more mappings in the device drop-down
menu)
Once you deleted (removed) all the mappings from IO list (device drop-down menu), you
are ready to import the DMC2000 mapping:

Extra Info: SYNC / MIX IN SYNC
For using SYNC in TRAKTOR2 PRO, set Master Clock as following:
TRAKTOR2 PRO Main Window, upper left corner
If you want the tempo fader and beat grid of the loaded (not playing) deck (= slave deck) to
be in SYNC with the master (playing) deck without manually adjusting the Pitch Fader on
the controller, use the SYNC button on the controller. With this function you can perform
the following actions:
SYNC (manual mix)
(Synchronize decks for manual beat mix)
Push the SYNC button 2x (1e push sets the slave deck tempo (pitch-fader) equal to the
(playing) master deck tempo, 2e push sets the beat grid (internal) equal to the (playing)
master deck beat grid and lock's the tempo. Now you can hit PLAY for manual beat mix.
MIX IN SYNC (auto mix)
(Synchronized decks + automatic beat mix)
Push the SYNC a third time (this will activate and hold SYNC for automatic beat mixing).
Now, when you hit PLAY, TRAKTOR2 PRO will perform an automatic (in sync) beat mix.
When both decks are playing, the slave deck will follow the master deck tempo changes
(manual tempo pitch-fader manipulation) as long as SYNC stays activated on the slave
deck. De-activate SYNC and the slave deck no longer follows tempo changes from the
Master deck (= goes out of Automatic Sync Mode).
Note: From now on, when you want to use the DMC2000 in combination with Traktor Pro 2, first
connect and power up the DMC2000, wait till you hear a sound confirming the USB device (DMC2000)
has been connected and THEN start TRAKTOR2 PRO software.
