Soo fresh and hoping to find some friendliness- (have spent years djing psytrance on Cdjs and dabbled writing on Abbelton. )

Any leads to tutorials on using original X1 and Z1 as a combination!? 🥸🤓

    Anyone can help me out!? I plug in both X1 and Z1 from USB port on controllers to USB ports in my Mac but only Z1 has function!? X1 goes through a colour array of the buttons when first plug in but then nothing!? Thanks in advance🙏✌️

    Yes, they work fine together.

    The problem might be that the x1 mk1 does not work well with modern mac, you would need to downtgrade to mac os 10.14 or something like that. Or use windows. Or use mk2 or mk3 hardware.

    Blessings to you For enlightenment, after research I see the mk1 isn’t supported by Traktor DJ 2. Thinking I’ll get Traktor pro 3 as it seems it may work just not sure if on MacOS🤔🤓

    Oh, Traktor DJ 2. That is dead software, no updates in years. And barely any controller support.


    Oh, and next time it is best if you post in the Traktor forum. It was only by chance I saw the post here.

    lord-carlos you're a deadset legend, appreciate your expertise and willingness to help others, a rare combo! Thanks for your responses🙏

    ... I was just browsing the forum and your legendness to help others came up again, I followed and was attempting to create an aggregate device to use mac speakers to have output and the Z1 to Cue with (got flooded last year and lost self built house and all contents got washed away including my monitors so only getting back on top one piece at a time!! 😏), still a little lost on getting this configuration to work, not sure how to set phones jack to cue and MAC internals to out put audio but will read through again and see if I can prevail!

    I have got the X1 MK3 on the way and will wrap head around it when it arrives and I get to jump into putting these two portables together!!

    again thanks!
