Traktor Pro 1.2 or newer
Please note: This tutorial only works for Traktor Pro version 1.2 or newer.
To make Traktor Pro working with your RMP-3, a midi mapping has to be imported. So, Traktor knows what to do if a button is pressed on your RMP-3. The following tutorial will explain all important steps to config your Traktor setup.
To facilitate working with your RMP-3 connected to Traktor Pro, you'll find some ready-to-use mappings which can be customized, in the download center.
1) Downloading a corresponding mapping from the download center
2) Importing a mapping into Traktor (Scratch) Pro
Before starting Traktor, the RMP-3 should be connected to your computer and should also be installed correctly.
Then start Traktor and open the settings (attachment 1).
After that, open â€œController-Managerâ€? in the settings window. Within the category â€œDevice Setupâ€?, you'll find the button â€œAdd...â€? which has to be clicked once. Using this menu, click â€œImportâ€? (attachment 2).
Note: If you find an old RMP-3 mapping in the list, you have to delete it first! Just choose the mapping, click "Edit...", then "Delete".
Using the file dialog, choose the newly downloaded mapping file.
Now the mapping file should be loaded correctly. So, all buttons and knobs should work as expected. Have a look at the screenshot (attachment 3) how it should look like.
Traktor Pro 1.1, older versions or Traktor 3 Studio
Using Traktor Pro 1.1, older versions or Traktor 3 Studio, you have to follow this instruction:
Downloading a corresponding mapping from the download center (-->point 1)
Please only download compatible mappings.
Open the settings.
A window is opening, at the bottom, there's a button "Import" which has to be clicked..
Now you have to choose the newly downloaded mapping file.
At last, all buttons and knobs of the RMP-3 should work for you.
Attention: If it is not working either, these are possible reasons:
The downloaded mapping is not compatible to the Traktor version you're using. Please also give attention to any error message popping up.
Furthermore the RMP-3 often has to be activated separately (in the settings). Thus, enter the category "Midi devices" and mark in both lists "Input devices" and "Output devices" the "RMP-3" (it's often named "USB-Audio device" instead of "Digital Jockey".) as active.
