Xtreme Mapping 1.5 Released: Remix Deck Support, Mk2 Support, HID Mapping
After a brief hiatus from updating the software, Vincenzo has released Xtreme Mapping 1.5 and is compatible with the recently released Traktor 2.6.5. The 1.5 update includes a few key features, the foremost of which is Remix Deck support. While it still is missing direct mapping of the 16 cells in the Remix Decks, Traktor mappers can use the “Wizard feature” to quickly create a mapping for each Remix Deck.
The second major feature is support for NI’s latest Mk2 controllers: the Kontrol S2, S4, and X1. This also allows users to open and edit any HID or MID mapping for these controllers. Oddly the “learn” function is disabled if you create an HID mapping, but mappers can still use this to quickly create all of the mapped commands, then load the mapping in Traktor and assign your controls in there. One final feature of note: Xtreme Mapping 1.5 features a command browser that lets you search through Traktor’s growing list of commands. It also includes a small description below each command to explain its function – very handy.
