This TRAKTOR DJ Studio 3 controller mapping for Allen & Heath’s XONE:3D controller is intended for technically ambitious DJs, who use all four decks of TRAKTORDJ Studio 3 in their performances. The main aspect of this layout is performance security. To achieve this, most functions usually found on the ‘first level’ of conventional DJ gear (such as pitchbend or cue) are found on the second level, and are triggered by first selecting the deck and subsequently the function. The layout makes full use of TRAKTOR DJ Studio 3’s four internal MIDI pages thatprovide up to four function layers for some of the controls. For example, the jog wheel can be used in a very intuitive manner to scroll through the track list, to skip through a track, to bend thepitch as well as for scratching. The various functions are grouped together according to their relevance for the different phases of a mix: • 'Direct access' has been allocated to browsing functions andeffect control • 'Shift-access' has been allocated to functions used when cueing up a song before the mix • 'Alternate-access' has been allocated to functions used during the mix Note: Othersettings, e.g. for 2 deck mixing, can be found on our website at www.native-instruments.com/traktor.info
