    I’ve seen someone with virtual dj (pc) have the same problem as myself with Traktor 2 (macbook pro), both using the hercules rmx controller, where after setup if I play a tune music will still come out even if faders are down. That is until I move them, then they start to work. However, I didn’t have the problem when using vdj 8. Any ideas?

    Thanks

    If the faders were left up the last time the software was closed they’ve probably stayed that way after you’ve reopened the software again. If you have the faders visible in the user interface you will see this. When you move each fader the new position will be picked up by the software and it will move accordingly. If the Midi control for the fader is set to soft takeover it will only pick up when you move the physical fader to the same position as it is on the screen. The same applies if you move the on screen fader with the mouse on the screen. Hope that helps!

    Hi Phillip

    I’ve tested it out and left all the faders down on both the software and controller. But when restarted the software faders where all back up.

    Looking at https://www.native-instruments.com/en/support/knowledge-base/show/698/how-to-use-the-controller-manager-in-traktor/ it looks like you can change software takeover..though it will take a little reading to understand what needs to be done to change it.
