Supercharge The Traktor Sequencer With Midi Fighters

Last week, Native Instruments launched the brand new version of Traktor 2.11. One of the key features: a step sequencer for the Remix Decks. While the Midi Fighter Twister has been able to sequence Remix Decks, this new feature opens it up to a host of new choices. Read on to learn how the Midi Fighter 3D and Twister can be used as powerful controllers for the Traktor Sequencer.

With the new Traktor Sequencer we have two new mappings – and of course the built-in sequencer for the Twister still works amazingly. Here are all the options for supercharged sequencing in Traktor with Midi Fighters:

Midi Fighter 3D Traktor Sequencer Mapping

Midi Fighter 3D + Traktor SequencerReady to start using the Traktor Sequencer? We’re launching a Midi Fighter 3D mapping for the sequencer (and one for the Twister as well). Watch Ean’s overview:

Posted by Midi Fighter on Monday, October 17, 2016

This new mapping was designed by highly popular request. When Traktor 2.11 was announced, many Midi Fighter 3D owners emailed us to ask if we would make a great mapping for their controllers. This is the first iteration of that mapping – built by the DJTT staff.

Features include 4 banks of 16 steps for decks C and D, per-slot effects control, swing adjustment, a motion-based filter, and more. Watch Ean’s demo video above – or just download the mapping here on

This mapping should also work for other Midi Fighter models – the Classic and Spectra. If you have suggestions or bug reports, please leave a comment on the mapping page and we will update it.

Midi Fighter Twister Traktor Sequencer Mapping

This mapping is a very similar variation of the built-in Midi Fighter Twister sequencer, but you’ll note that there are some differences that make it a new animal so no matter what your workflow we have you covered.

Since it uses Traktor’s internal sequencer you no longer have to worry about setting up the MIDI Clock or adjust the initial phase, so it’s pretty much a breeze to started, even if you’re not a Traktor wizard. Swing controls allow you add some groove to your beats to make them sound more natural and changing the pattern length makes it more versatile for quick edits on the fly. You can now also control 2 sequencer decks with a single device which was not possible before.

There are some features that didn’t make the cut – step velocity (adjusting the volume of each step), switching between different patterns on the fly at the twist of a knob, and of course using other mappings in tandem like our Twister Gratification mapping along the sequencer. Should you need them, you can always use our original Twister Sequencer mapping or use a 3D to handle the sequencing.

Download this mapping here on– and be sure to share your notes, feedback, and bug reports.

Other Controllers + Traktor Sequencer

If you’re not a Midi Fighter owner (you can get one here on the DJTT store) our MIDI mapping database has already started to have maps uploaded for other controllers. If you make one of your own, share it on there so that everyone can enjoy!

To see other Traktor Sequencer mappings – go to, hit the “Recent” tab, and under the software dropdown select “Traktor”.

    Special effects making with traktor and numark mixtrack

  • Robert Wulfman

    When I use the twister sequencer I have trouble some times getting it to stay in sync because of clock jitter. would be nice if it could use traktor’s sequencer instead of needing to be synced.

  • Giordano

    there must be a mapping for Traktor Kontrol X1!!!!!

    • Florian Motz

      if it wasnt the “unusable” mapping creation on Windows i d give it a shot. Takes AGES -.-

      • zendoo


  • Roy Bear

    That’s totally awesome!
    Giving a near-leagacy product (everybody knows how fast paced this game is), a great new meaning! And I’ll use this mapping for good, even if I own a fully supported Controller like the S8. 16 Steps are far better then 8, right? 😀
    Thanks DJTT!

  • DjCoops

    So probably stupid questions but where the hell do I save the samples provided by NI to? And can this use any sample in the remix deck?

    • Moonified

      If you are talking about the .trak remix deck files they issued, then simply drag the .trak files to your remix folder in traktor and they will import automatically.

      If you want any old sample, then simply drag the sound clip into traktors track collection to import it, and when you then set it to one shot or looped (right click from the browser window to do this), then it should appear in the all samples area.

      Alternatively, you could just create your own playlist called ‘samples’ or something similar and drag your sound clips into there as well.

    great work guys, love it, just to make clear with the new maps for the twister, There are some features that didn’t make the cut – step velocity (adjusting the volume of each step), switching between different patterns on the fly at the twist of a knob, and of course using other mappings in tandem like our Twister Gratification mapping along the sequencer. so no twisted gratification? if the new mapping is installed?

    • djsmokiejoe

      I’m using Twister and having trouble running Twister Gratification mapping along the sequencer mapping…
      Is there a way to switch between the two?

      • goblinz

        with the twister you have to push both middle side buttons at the same time to switch from the internal (old) sequincer to the twisted grat fx page

    • Stewe

      You Guys can still use original Twister Sequencer mapping along side the Twisted Gratification.

  • Eric Allen

    No FX sends

    • Roy Bear

      not sure if troll or blind 😉

      • Eric Allen


        • Roy Bear

          Clearly there is a FX send for every slot, or did I misunderstood your “no FX send”?

  • gssjr

    Is there a sequencer mapping for Midi Fighter 3D in Ableton Live?

  • Lox

    Anything for the specta folks?

    • Matías J. Padilla

      Soon, the core works but it need to be modified since it lacks the extra bank buttons.

      • FloMo

        I am eagerly waiting for the release. Any predictions on the date?

  • Keynote101

    Dam was the first to post a mappin and wasn’t mentioned…teardrop

    • Spacecamp

      Which one is yours? 🙂

  • Vader Trackerz

    use ableton or anything else to produce or play live maybe? 🙂

  • emptysounds

    Bummer, I was looking forward to mapping this to my 3D and running along with Twisted Gratification on my Twister.

    • Matías J. Padilla

      You can use the 3D sequencer map along with a Twister using the Twisted Gratification mapping.

  • Julian Knight

    No pitch control ? 🙁

    • Spacecamp

      According to our mapping experts, pitch is not yet MIDI-mappable :/

    • Matías J. Padilla

      That feature is only limited to NI controllers sadly, you can’t map it.

    • deejae snafu

      you could map the key control for a similar effect….
