Here is a video of my Akai APC40 that I custom mapped fro Traktor 2. Sorry that the end of the video wasn't clear enough to see all the controls I mapped. The big problem some of you have is getting the light rings to work. Here is what you do.

Create a MIDI out for what you want to control and then add +8 to the CC number of the knob you want to have the light rings work.

These are the code numbers to tell what kind of LED ring you want the knob to have:

1 = No ring just single bar
2= Full ring like you see when using Ableton Live (Like you see for my volume controls)
3= Pan style ring (Like you see for my filters)

Put the same number in both the low and high fields for MIDI RANGE. The LED Rings will not work until Traktor is restarted.

NOTE: You still have to send the level out to the actual CC number of the knob you are wanting to effect. Because the CC number that is +8 is only used to tell the knob which LED Ring mode to use.

I hope you all enjoy the video and if you need any help feel free to comment or send me a message. I will help anyone that asks for it! So don't be shy ask me anything that you need help with! I can also send you this mapping if you want it. This mapping would be useless for you if you don't have an S4 Controller also. But I do have an excellent mapping for use without it. The only thing that needs done is the LED Rings need setup.
