Software setup (Traktor example) :
1 - Go to Midi preferences or Midi setup and enable the iTouchMidi ports
(some softwares may not have Midi preferences and listen to all available ports, no interface setup is needed )
2- To use iTM DJ in your DJ software you need to map the controls to the software,
we have templates for for Traktor and Traktor pro available for download in our site,
for quick and easy setup just load the correct template in Traktor midi setup screen,
remapping is pretty easy in the Traktor so you can modify our supplied templates to suit your own taste.
if no template is available for your software you have to create your own mappings using your software Midi learning engine, please check you software documentation for details on midi mapping.
We appreciate if you can send us your templates for different softwares so we can provide them for other users ;)
