Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S2 MK3

Postby mi01 » Tue Oct 08, 2019 3:55 pm

Hello,
i started mapping the Traktor Kontrol S2 MK3 controller to Mixxx. By now most functions are implemented, except for some limitations and open questions listed below. I would be glad for some people testing the mapping and giving feedback. You can download the XML and JavasSript-file from my Github repository and put them the into the controller folder:


I created a page in the Wiki with some technical details around the USB HID specification, in case somebody want to have a look. I will add some more documentation there soon. There are some limitations and open questions so far:

  • Secondary shift-function for the play, cue and sync button is not implemented yet (DONE)
  • Distinguish between long and short sync button press with timer (DONE)
  • Make it possible to jump out of the loop with corresponding knob (DONE)
  • REV / FLX button not implemented yet (DONE)
  • What to do with the GRID buttons? I have no idea what Mixxx function makes sense here ... (DONE)
  • Also i have no idea how to map the small "add to preperation list" buttons close to the browse-knob? (DONE)

Hi Michael!

I tried to use Traktor Kontrol S2 MK3 with Mixxx 2.0.0 on a Linux Mint 18.1
Therefore I copied your files to the controller folder as you described.
When starting Mixxx there is an error
"There was a problem parsing the XML file /home/sven/.mixxx/controllers/Traktor Kontrol S2 MK3.hid.xml.
unexpected character at line 45, column 94"

What went wrong?

Thx,
Sven

Hello,
this is a strange error, since the file Traktor Kontrol S2 MK3.hid.xml has less than 45 lines. Can you double check if you copied the files correctly and compare it against the file in the repository?

I suggest to backup your ~/.mixxx/controllers directory, delete all files and copy only the new configuration in there.
Then start MIXXX and select the controller configuration within the settings.
There shall be no interference with old configs anymore.

Please note that the mapping has been created for Mixxx 2.2. You are referring to use version 2.0 which is no longer supported.

Please attach the corresponding XML file that the error message refers to. The original file contains only 19 lines: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/mixxx ... K3.hid.xml

You have saved the contents of the HTML page from GitHub as your XML mapping file instead of the raw contents.
