These instructions contain modified Dj Tech Tools Instant Gratification mapping:
What you’ll get:
First things first: I won’t take any responsibility which could or could not have been caused by this mapping. No warranty, no support, pure fun! Leds still require some work, but the rest of the stuff should be quite solid. You’ll need WiFi, both your computer and iPad have to be in same network. For best performance it is recommended that you’ll create an ad-hoc WiFi network between your iPad and Mac (click Airport icon on top of your screen => Create network). I haven’t had any trouble / lag in my home WiFi environment, but some people are complaining that the WiFi can cause huge lag for the operation. There can also be some lost packages (e.g. you push a button on iPad => nothing happens on Traktor) to which the ad-hoc network should help.
Step by step instructions for setup:
1) Install the applications mentioned above on your computer / iPad
2) Download and unzip iMidifighter files
3) Open the file “iMidifighter_4banks_leds.touchosc” in your TouchOSC Editor and press “Sync” button.
4) Start TouchOSC on your iPad, go to layout view and press “Add” => Select your computer as a host after which the layout will be synchronized to your iPad.
5) Go back to the main screen of TouchOSC, go to “Network” section and make sure that the incoming and outgoing ports are set (I use 8000 for outgoing and 8001 for incoming)
6) Start Osculator on your Mac and open the “iMidifighter_4banks_leds” file. If you see “Port 8000 already in use” error message, you’ll have to close other Osculator windows which might be open and then press the “Start” button on top left corner of Osculator’s screen.
7) Check your TouchOSC on iPad, your computer should now be visible on the Network view. Choose your computer’s name and go back to TouchOSC main screen on which you can press “Done” on upper right corner => you’ll see the layout of Channel A
8) On Osculator, go to Parameters view and scroll down the list until you’ll see “LaiPad” written in red => Press any key on your TouchOSC client on iPad and then press the “Gear and downwards arrow” next to any row and choose your own iPad on the list.
9) Start up Traktor, go to preferences => controller management => Export your current layout (will be deleted during next step) and then press “Import” on bottom of the preferences window and import the “iMidifighter_leds.tsi”. Don’t use the “Add => Import” route, as it will not work properly.
10) If you e.g. have Traktor S4 controller, you can add the mapping by pressing Add => Traktor => Kontrol S4 path after which you can use the controller normally.
After all this is done, you should now have a working iMidifighter. If you have e.g. some trouble with the EFX (wrong EFX loaded when you press the button), you could try to re-import the tsi file to Traktor. Next time you want to take the layout in use, all you have to do is to start TouchOSC on your iPad, Osculator on your Mac, load the template and then start Traktor.
