Already using Traktor? We have created powerful 2 and 4 deck mappings for Traktor PRO. All the controls you need to perform have been mapped to the Touchstrips, knobs, faders and buttons on TWITCH. A free Traktor PRO overlay is included in the TWITCH box which labels what each control does. Simply place it on TWITCH to transform it into a Traktor controller with a difference.
