(SOLVED) Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol X1 MK1

Postby lilmonkeydjoose » Tue May 19, 2020 5:32 pm

Hi there,

I'm a linux user and I'm switching from serato to Mixxx and it's pretty cool. I'm trying to use my Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol X1 (first edition), I find the .xml and .js in usr/share/... and move it to the folder home/me/mixxx

But when I'm open my Mixxx, it's dosen't work, it's wright that no controller is loged ? What I doing wrong ?

Regards

Mixxx is free because it's yours!

I heard FLAC and I haven't gone back.

If you're open to getting a new controller that is similar, I'd suggest the Allen & Heath Xone K2.

I'm open about a new controller, but I have a lovely Xone 22 with a rotary kit, then this Xone K2 would be great, but without the fader, that's why the NI X1 is great, you know something like that ?

What about the AKAI AFX ?

As far as I know, the Akai AFX is a class compliant MIDI device. However, no one has posted a Mixxx mapping for it. Moreover, it has been discontinued for a while and I don't even see used ones available on eBay. The Xone K2 is still available. There is also the Kontrol X1 Mk2, but you'd have to write the HID mapping for that and it doesn't come with a case like the Xone K2 does.

Hi, thanks for your feedback. The think is that I'm in love with my old X1, is it hard to write HID or someone already do that ?

I am currently trying to write a basic HID mapping for the X1 Mk2, but it turned out to be harder than I thought. Even though Javascript is my main language reagarding web developmend and Node.js I have zero experience with the controller programming APIs of mixxx itself.
At the moment I cant figure out, why some Inputs simply dont work, even if I can see the incomming values in the debugging terminal.
Unfortunately the documentation is not that great and pretty much nobody on the internet ran into similar issues as far as my research took me.

Is anybody here who wants to help me with the programming?
If so I would put my existing code on Github :)
