Traktor Audio Cube Control -To Be or Not to Be?

Traktor Audio Cube Control -To Be or Not to Be?

I was passed this video link today and thought I would share this with all you Traktor users. Whilst this looks cool and makes great use of these AudioCubes, do you think these could actually be used out there in a live performance professionally?

I feel it’s possible but being a DJ myself we all know that buttons and knobs are more of a preference. Is it time for a change?
In this video the DJ Lamebot is using two cubes to control 8 paramaters mapped up in Traktor Pro. What do you think? – leave us a comment or two…

25 Key Midi Keyboard Midi Map for Traktor Pro

Play your cue points mashing and reworking in key just like you would on a keyboard – within reason. Each White key pitches the key up or down in the correct increments from the middle ‘C’. You can select which focus deck you want, which cue point on each deck you want and kill the EQ’s all with the black keys (as shown in the video).

 

GREAT ADDITION TO ANY TRAKTOR SETUP USING CUE POINTS AND ANY 25 KEY MIDI KEYBOARD.
