Traktor MIDI Mapping: Advanced modifiers (i.e. DJTT Supercombos)

"HEY EAN GOLDEN, CAN YOU LIKE, GIVE UP YOUR LIFE AND DO EVERYTHING FOR ME" - Average DJTT user.

Prerequisites:

  1. You can do everything in my modifier basics tutorial
  2. You have patience for fiddly things.
INTRODUCTION - "Wait, so Ean Golden isn't going to do it for me?"

If you go on DJ Tech Tools, (which if you don't, you should) then you'll no doubt have seen the Midi Fighter, a pretty nifty controller idea. (Pros: Fast buttons! Cons: Only 16 of them :[)  And the recent mapping which gave the user "Super combos" ala Street Fighter.  Well, the reason I was inspired to make this blog was for this very post, to explain to people how to make their own super combo layouts.  Even though DJTT did a post explaining how they did it, I personally found it to make it sound way harder than it actually was, and if you didn't understand anything I posted in my last tutorial, there was no way you were going to manage it.  So in the words of Yoda, "Enough fucking yapping, lets get mapping some super combos".

Okay, so you bought your VCI-100, your X1, your lying sack of sh- Sorry, Novation Launchpad, your Mixtrack pro, whatever your flavour and reasons, you have a MIDI controller.  You have Traktor, and you think "Gee golly gosh, I'm gonna be getting more poon than Ron Jeremy!"  Or something along those lines.  You've watched the videos of people using their controllers to literally make digital sex, and you now have the equipment to do it yourself...
