How to install the Enhanced Controller Mapper v1.2




Download the driver and the setting file




The first step is to download the driver and the setting file for your DDJ-T1 from Pioneer DJ's website . The driver will allow you to connect your DDJ-T1 to your computer, while the setting file will import the custom mapping into Traktor Pro 2.


To download them, go to Pioneer DJ's website and select your operating system (Windows or Mac OS). Then, click on "Drivers" and download the latest version of "DDJ-T1 driver for Windows" or "DDJ-T1 driver for Mac OS". Next, click on "MIDI Mapping files" and download "DDJ-T1 setting file for Traktor Pro". Save these files on your computer.


Connect your DDJ-T1 to your computer

If you are using Windows, unzip the downloaded file "PioneerDDJ****exe.zip" and double-click on "PioneerDDJ****.exe" to install the driver. Follow the instructions on screen until the installation is complete.


If you are using Mac OS, you don't have to install any driver software. Mac OS standard audio driver will be automatically installed when your DDJ-T1 is connected to your Mac with a USB cable.


Import the setting file to Traktor Pro 2




The next step is to import the setting file into Traktor Pro 2. This will load the custom mapping into the software.


To do this, launch Traktor Pro 2 and go to Preferences > Controller Manager > Device Setup > Add > Import TSI > Pioneer > Pioneer_DDJ_T12.tsi . Click on "Open" and then on "OK". The setting file will be imported and assigned to your DDJ-T1.
