Does anybody know if the Traktor Kontrol X1 is compatible with VDJ? or is there even a way to make it compatible? Likewise, i'm looking into getting a controller to control a bunch of stuff. What would be my best bet if Traktor Kontrol X1 isn't compatible. I'm only looking at spending maybe $400 max.

Sorry, as clearly posted above, mappers are only available to registered licensed users of the full VirtualDJ Professional.

You only have VirtualDJ LE (Limited Edition), which is free limited software and does not support using custom mappers. It only supports and will work with the MIDI controller that it came with - In your case, the Hercules DJ Console MK2.

You can upgrade at a discount to the full VirtualDJ Professional by going to:

I bought an TRAKTOR X1 last year and whenever I used it for more than 3 hours I had the same result in my lap tops.
I 've got a problem on hard disc twice on 2 different lap tops.
Whenever I tryied to use my TRAKTOR X1, I had a serius problem on hard discs and I replaced them.

I am still not sure if the fault is coming from TRAKTOR X1 or is something else but I have strong suspicions that it is from TRAKTOR X1. because I have excluded all the others.

Please lead me to find out where is the problem and tell me if it is possible to send it to the company to investigate if it has a problem.
As you understand, I cannot continue using it on doubt, cause of creating problems on my hard disks.

P.S. the TRAKTOR X1 seems to be functional and I 've never found something wrong with it, except these 2 cases but they are enough to persuade me that there is something wrong because these were the only 2 cases that I used the TRAKTOR X1 more than 3 hours and in general I use it rarely!

I am running X1 over a year now without any problem.
Ill think there is something wrong with your notebook!

Hi pOpYDJ,

I downloaded your mapper and followed your instructions, nevertheless I can't make the damn thing work. I can only map Volume 1 to deck 1 eq_high, but if I try to add another mapping the eq_high one is forgotten. Also, Volume 2 and 3 (on both sides of X1) always move Effects P.1 on both decks (with the mapping xml provided in your bundle). I am using Controller Editor 1.4.2 and the version 3.00 of the X1 driver.

What am I doing wrong? or do you have any idea of why it is not working?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


P.S. Has anybody else experienced this?

Ill think you do not map the buttons correctly in VDJ.
I dont have a VDJ installation here at the moment.

You must press "Add" or "New" and then move or press slider/button you want.
If VDJ is jumping to another entry of the list you have already mapped it!

X1 works since i have released my mapper very stable on my setup.

Can I just check, should this work out of the box on a MAC.

I have my X1 working with Traktor.
Close Traktor.
Switch to MIDI mode, but it doesn't seem to work (Definition and Mapper are both present.)
Nothing seems to work.
If I try to map the controls to a different controller it works.
If I select Kontrol X1, nothing works.

Am I missing something?!

OK so I got the controller working (seems another controller definition was causing problems)

Now I just need to work out why the LEDs are not working...

I'm on MAC if that makes any difference.



Professional edition user
Posted Sun 04 Dec 11 @ 7:32 am

Yes it makes a difference. The MIDI Driver IN and OUT names are different.
Please take a look in the definition file. on the in the line with the mapper name / creator .... there should be no tag drivername= or drivernameout=.

Please check this.
Good luck

PS: Sorry but I have no MAC to test my mapper :-(

I don't remember seeing those tags so I looked again, they are not there...


Professional edition user
Posted Sun 04 Dec 11 @ 12:32 pm
Maybe you look at your mac system and took drivername and drivernameout and wrote those tags in the definition file.
Maybe then it works !?
