J.J.’s DN-HC4500 + Traktor Pro TSI MIDI Mapper

  • I’m working on a Custom 4 Deck MIDI Mapper for the DN-HC4500 and Traktor Pro. When I’m finished, I will update the PDF and create a video.
  • • Display Support (Display adding Latency was fixed in Traktor 2.0)
  • —–May cause USB traffic jam
  • —–Use only if you own a MAC or Audio 8
  • —–Use only if you love to see the Track’s Title nonstop scrolling
  • • No Display Support
  • —–Low Latency (Better Performance)
  • —–Cue LED stays on when Cued. Play LED flashes while Paused. Jog Wheel & Parameter Blue LED is always ON.

    Display Support Updated 2/28/2013

    2013 = Year, 02 = Month, 28 = Day.

    Fixed: ‘Scratch ON’ for the Jog Wheel freezes the player until the Jog Wheel is touched again.

    Fixed: Deck Focus works. Deleted previous LED off when switching Decks.
    Fixed: Flip + Hot Cues 3-5 on right side. When deleting Hot Cues 3-5, it would jump to Cue instead of just deleting it.
    Added: ‘Deck Focus Select’ for all 4 decks. When you hit Playlist to go to Deck C (left side) or Deck D (right side), the Play, Loop (Loop ON) and Cue LED’s should return to the decks state. For instance, if you have 4 Cues on deck A, then switch to Deck C and back to Deck A, the 4 Cue LED lights should turn back on.
    Fixed: Cue LED on Deck A was assigned to Device Target. So when you hit Cue on Deck B, Deck A Cue would also light up RED.
    Fixed: Play LED for Deck B and Deck D wasn’t assigned to the modifier layers. So when you hit Playlist to go to Deck D, it wouldn’t update the LED for that layer.
    Fixed: Added correct Modifiers to Deck Focus Select. If you do Flip + Playlist = Only Browser Toggle, it would change Deck Focus without changing layers.

    To Do: Effects now work, but only On and Off. I still need to add Flip + Effect so the Jog Wheel effects the parameter, PM Knob effects the Wet/Dry, and Forward Backward selects the active effect.
    To Do: If the Deck is a Sample Deck, then the Cue Points will trigger the sampler’s. Flip + Cue 1 might be to add current loop to Sample Deck 1. I haven’t figured it out. I will have to look how the S4 does this.
