Is it possible to re-map the SHIFT control on an X1 mk2 ?

I'm presuming you have to go to MIDI mode, which is a pain as its too slow and too many button combos when you're in the heat of the moment.

    I tried making a map with the MIDI mode and it doesn't work properly.

    The browse knob when assigned to the browser is not exact one click per entry, jumps or sometimes doesnt inc or decrement, same for the looping knob, grrr, anyone experienced with this controller?

    Kontrol X1 mk2.

    Do you want to completely remap the controller or do you just want to add functionality to the native mapping?

    Sounds like a mapping issue. I have X1 MK2 and it is flawless in both Default and Midi Mode.

    If you could upload your TSI then we might be able to look into it ans let you know more.

    Really appreciate the help, I just want to use SHIFT+ buttons and knobs overwriting controller mode but it didn't seem like you can map SHIFT in the controller mapping?

    Do you have your flawless mapping for the MIDI mode, I mean I don't need this if the shift can be remapped.

    It is not traktor mapping in my midi mode, it is mapped to other software. (productivity tool, not DJ tool)

    What you need is a single modifier mapped to the Shift button inside the default mode.

    Inside MIDI mode you don't need to setup modifiers, it is built into the hardware.

    The X1 mk2 you're referring to seems to be the Native Instruments Kontrol X1 mk2, a DJ controller. The controller's functionality and customization options are typically determined by the software you are using, such as Native Instruments Traktor.

    While it may not be possible to directly remap the SHIFT control on the hardware itself, you may be able to remap its functionality within the software. Many DJ software applications offer customization options that allow you to assign different functions to various controller buttons and knobs.

    To remap the SHIFT control on your X1 mk2, you would

    typically need to access the software's settings or preferences and look for a section related to MIDI mapping or controller assignments. From there, you should be able to select the SHIFT button on the X1 mk2 and assign it a different function or map it to a specific MIDI command.

    It's important to note that the exact steps to remap controls can vary depending on the software you are using. I recommend consulting the user manual or documentation for your specific DJ software to find detailed instructions on how to customize controller mappings.
