can this be used with serato itch ?

I use numark mixdeck universal with virtual dj pro, is this compatible?
Vince on Jul 11, 2012
BEST ANSWER: This unit is only compatible with NI and Virtual DJ
I see someone asked about if this will work with Serato Itch and it was said it can be mapped. How can this be mapped with Itch? Itch doesn't have the right click function like Torq does.
null on Apr 4, 2012
BEST ANSWER: You are correct about that functon, but you are mapping for functions of Itch, so it can be done. Keep in mind, when midi-mapping, sometimes not all features can be mapped.

Must have for Digital DJ's!
Pros: Versatile,Compact,Lightweight,Durable,Easy To Use

This is a MUST HAVE for any digital DJ running Traktor Pro or other software like Serato! Its designed to work fluidly with Traktor Pro and Pro 2, and can be used with or with out another controller. I personally use the Kontrol X1 as a dedicated effects control for Traktor Pro 2, while using a seperate midi controller for all other functions! This piece fits perfectly into any setup. Its size is perfect for any dj, lightweight and portable. Its durable, and doesnt feel flimsy like alot of midi controllers might. The backlit buttons make it easy to see off a glance what effect is on, or parameter is being controlled. Even in broad daylight outdoors, you can still see the buttons and know whats going on!
There is a slight curve to learning what the controls are mapped to in the software, but once installed(which is an absolute breeze!), its plug and play from there!
If you run Traktor or Serator, this MUST be in your gear bag!

its a great controller for traktor
Pros: Durable,Compact,Lightweight

I think it's a solid controller for both Traktor Pro and Scratch Live, though, obviously better suited for Traktor. The price is nice at only [$] so it won't break the bank. The quality of the X1 is right up there with its cousin Maschine. It's solid yet lightweight and it Controls most of the needed functions in Traktor.

yes i said it plug and play with traktor
Pros: Compact,Durable,Versatile,Lightweight,Easy To Use

when using traktor it does everything you need. you are able to map it out to your own settings if you like. the buttons and knobs are very responsive, i mean lightning fast response. you can also use it while using other controllers. the one thing that it doesn't have is a jog wheel and pitch sliders but i was using it with denons mc6000 controller that does have a jog wheel and sliders. you can control the pitch and also have the use of + and -bends but my whole life i've used a slider to work the pitch. there is plenty of space between knobs and buttons so that you don't get confused. you are able to control deck a and b or c and d and your sample decks. overall just a great easy to use controller.

Simply Amazing
Pros: Easy To Use,Durable,Compact,Versatile,Clear Sound,Lightweight

This controller is great, it has many great features and fx that you can work with when tweaking your music and it comes with traktor LE to help you along the way. I use it with Traktor Pro 2 and its very easy to use for beginners. Great for looping as well. The items looks very well build and very durable. I would recommend this to everyone.

Best when used with the Sample Decks
Pros: Lightweight,Compact,Easy To Use
Cons: Limited Functions

The Kontrol provides a nice interface for controlling Traktor's basic functions. However, those functions can also be controlled by keyboard commands. The real value is using it to control the sample decks. I bought my Kontrol as part of the Traktor Pro 2 upgrade special. I wouldn't pay [$] for it by itself. This is still a good piece of equipment though.
