This project’s basically made of three interfaces: a symmetrical page for decks A and B, its twin for decks C and D, and a page dedicated to the master section and the browser. Don’t worry, it’s all very neat and intuitive !
A few tips for this template:
At the top of each of the three pages, lies a small container enclosing three pads (labelled deck a/b, master and deck c/d). Those trigger the Details Pages layouts #1, #2 and #3 respectively. In Traktor, you could therefore display the Effect Controls panel for deck a and b in page layout 1, and the Effect Controls panel for deck c and d in page layout 3 for instance.
For each of the four decks, as well as for the Master section, Fx_prev and Fx_next toggle between the various effects, while the four knobs below correspond to those in the effect controls panel.
In the loop section, Loop_io pads can be used to manually set the starting and ending points of a loop, activate or quit running loops. The Loop_end pads are for resizing the current loop by moving loop end points. The current loop can be expanded or shrinked in three different ways , according to the size of the steps defined in the Loop End panel. The Loop_move pads move the loop backward or forward in time, again with three user-definable kinds of steps.
If you use Mac, set Dameon Input and Output 0 on Target 0, and activate the corresponding ports in Traktor’s Preferences (MIDI Interfaces section). If you use PC, set MidiYoke or MidiMaple 1 and 2 on Target 0 and activate the corresponding ports. When you’re done, load the DjKabuki.tks file in Traktor’s MIDI Setup in order to load the MIDI map up.
