How Do I Mix Four Decks On A Two-Deck Controller?

Controlling 4 decks on a 2 deck controller is well within your means, but it will take careful attention and you need to be an organized person – otherwise you can just as easily manipulate a live tracks or something to that end.  Traktor has mapping that will allow one physical deck to control more than one virtual deck, with a caveat.  The pitch control must be reset to its original placement before the new pitch can be set.

This makes sense, because if you pitch as maxed out, let’s say +10%, then you wouldn’t be able to raise the pitch of the next track that shares the same controls.…

The Goods

The first thing you notice about the PAD-One is the size and construction.  It has a die-cast aluminum body which …
