The mappings can be downloaded from many sites around the net. To tell you the truth I'm starting literally from the bottom. I have been able to get traktor to work with the internal sound card in my mac but just not with Hercules. You can map 99% of the controls to any function you want making it easy to set up as your own. As you can probably tell by the title I'm an absolute beginner. It ends up being a whole mess of wires to hook up, when I would prefer to rig everything into a solid, one-drop rack case. The left player went completely out one night at a gig and I had to run off the right player only.
Ease of Use: Setting up could have been easier. You said you have a 2ch mixer but it may have only one output? It is very easy to use as well. The only one small issue I have ran across is if the controller is not completely flat on a surphace, the jog wheel does not want to work. I expect to be able to call a company and speak to a real person and have a real answer as to the issue. Oh I have a line in so I can do this. Overall: have had this unit for almost 3 years now, and I use it for a party bus which I sometimes work on with Traktor Scratch pro 2. Another note is that in 24 bit mode only one set of inputs will function.
Traktor has lots of nice effects and I would be a fool not to take advantage of them. I mean, I don't have to plug in my laptop every time I want to mix with turntables. Edit: I should ask though, are the extras included on that page you linked actually worthwhile? The extra inputs allows for this. I'd say see how it goes and if you find you ever use the M3 just sell it. Support the artists who make the music and software you use. Hope they don't put me on hold for too long. And the channel availability will be visualized there.
These are infact buttons which need to be activated before any input signal will come through the hercules inputs. Mixing 2 decks is easy and the sound card is outstanding. My main concern though is finding something that's really beginner-friendly. Descriptions of the default function of each control are provided below. Home user Member since 2008 Dunno if anyone can offer any advice? Would I use this controller to learn with? I had a late night attempt the other night, but was not successful.
Please choose the relevant version according to your computer's operating system and click the download button. When I do anything from cueing a track, scratching, chopping etc there is a slight sound delay. Code 43 I've looked around google but have yet to find a solution, I'm running a little bit out of patience as I'm eager to use this, I have checked some of the forums here before creating a thread but still no dice. Once again if the software that came with it worked that might have made things easier. In the manual it states that both cannot be used at once. Keep in mind that the hercules isn't really quality gear either.
Garage band is included with the mac operating system. I could not have asked for more. Has anyone been able to hook up external sources and use them through a hercules with Traktor using the source 1 and 2 buttons? This is only barely adequate software out of the box. Manufacturer Support: The company has very limited hours of operation and at 6pm when I got the unit up and running and found out I was sent a copy of the software which did not work, I was left high and dry. I know I can run a regular mixer and use a Korg, but I am looking to have control over the crossfader for video mixing.
The settings for Traktor are described on Hercules tech support website in the pdf file described in the zip files. And also that the actual set-up panel for the remix has been configured and the proper drivers installed. Manufacturer Support: Not had a problem yet. I also get no sound coming through. Recommendation: If you are inexperienced with updating Hercules device drivers manually, we highly recommend downloading the.
I've tryed toggling the source buttons. Karlos and he will probably push it through. Value: I have been nothing but amazed by this company. If someone asks you for your page, that's cool, but unsolicited linking will get your post removed. We pull it all off with our strategically placed, coast-to-coast warehouses.
With a few tweaks on the software and power sides, it definitely gets the job done. I could really go either way on this. We'll wait on your money so you don't have to wait for your gear! Another touch to the volume sliders, and the sound will kick back in suddenly, and I'll have to lower the volume again. Here is the last step for me to be golden. I've been mulling this over for the past day and the more I think about it the more reasonable the S2 sounds, especially considering all the other feedback in this thread. Anyway, like I said I need to ring the helpdesk.
Since there's a sound card in it, I also use ableton with it, just as a sound card for when I produce music, which is cool. The preferance panel should allow you to use any sound card for recording. I will continue to purchase all of my dj equipment from this website. You can visit the Hercules website to verify this and, if necessary, download the very latest versions. The Hercules relies on the audio bus and mixing of the software to pass signal.
