How do I use my SCS.3 controller with Traktor Pro?

Before we begin, please make sure that you have the DaRouter and Traktor Pro software correctly installed.  If you have not yet received your DaRouter software, please go to this page to download and install it.

Now that you have your software installed, please connect your SCS.3 device(s) and run the DaRouter software.  When open, it should look something like this...

Let's take a second and look at the DaRouter interface.  If your SCS.3 controller(s) are connected properly, you will see serial numbers appear underneath the icons for each device in the Device Configuration section of DaRouter (the middle of the app).  This is important to check any time you launch DaRouter.  If you see the words "detecting device" instead of a serial number, please unplug the USB cable from the computer and reconnect it.  If you can never get device detection to work, please contact Stanton's support.

Once you've verified that you have properly detected controllers, let's move up a bit and look at the Active Preset drop-down box.

This is where you will select the preset you want to use.  Since we're configuring for Traktor Pro, you'll want to use the appropriate Traktor Pro preset for the controllers you own.

When you select the preset, you should see the controller(s) come to life with a "lightshow".  This is to let you know a preset has been loaded.  Simply touch a controller to stop it from blinking.

If you have any questions about how a preset works, please use the "?" button located to the right of the Active Preset drop-down and the Restart button.  When you press the "?" button, a web browser will open with instructions about how to use the preset you've selected.

Now that DaRouter is set up, lets open Traktor Pro.

In the top right corner of the Traktor Pro interface, there’s an icon that looks like a gear.  This opens your preferences. 

The first thing we’ll look at is your Audio Setup.  If a device isn’t selected and recognized, Traktor Pro will not play at all, so make sure your interface of choice is selected here.


Not that we have the audio interface selected, go to the Output Routing page.

There are 2 things you want to check here (indicated with white arrows).  At the top, make sure that Mixing Mode is set to INTERNAL, and select the main outs for your selected interface in the Output Master section.

If you have more than 2 outputs on your selected interface and intend to use headphones, plug your headphones into the next open set of outputs on your interface and select the appropriate outputs in the Output Monitor section in Traktor Pro.  In the above example, we’re using outputs 3 and 4 to feed the headphones.


For a more in-depth overview of audio device selection and configuration, please refer to the Appendix section of your SCS.3 manual.


The next section we’ll need to take a look at is the MIDI Setup section.

MIDI Setup looks slightly different depending on whether you have a Mac or a PC, but in either case we want to make sure that the SCS.3 DaRouter ports are the only ones selected.  In Windows, you will probably see 2 versions of each port – an “Emulated” port and a regular port.  Select the [Emulated] option only.  In OSX, there won’t be any emulated ports.  Please refer to the above graphic as a reference. 


For both input and output devices, make sure that only one device is selected, and that should be the device associated with SCS.3 DaRouter.  Now, let’s move to the MIDI Mapping page.

This is where all of the messages from your SCS.3 controller are associated with commands in Traktor Pro.  In the bottom left corner of the Preferences page, there is an “Import” button (indicated by the white arrow in the above graphic).  Press this, and your operating system’s file explorer will open (Explorer in Windows or Finder in OSX).


Traktor allows settings to be saved and recalled via files with the .tsi extension.  We need to look for the TSI  file for Traktor Pro using the file explorer that just opened.  The DaRouter installer puts them in a centralized place, which differs depending on which operating system you’re running.


In Windows, the path to your preset and TSI files is…


C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Stanton SCS.3 DaRouter


And in OSX, the path is…


…HOME DIRECTORY/Stanton SCS.3 DaRouter

(Your own home directory will be named after the active user, and will have a house icon to the left of it)


In that folder will be folders for all the different applications there are presets for.  Select the appropriate folder and you’ll see both the preset file (.btme), and the TSI file we’re looking for.  Once selected, you should see that the commands in the Assignment Table on the Traktor Pro preferences page have changed. 

Don't forget that if you have several TSI files and forgotten where they are (for instance, if you've downloaded them from our forums or created them yourself), you can always search for them using Explorer, Spotlight/Finder, etc by searching for the string "*.tsi" (omit the quotes).

Press Close and you’re ready to start mixing!

    The Hype Machine provides a fair bit of trfafic but for the more established blogs it usually falls down to less than 30% of total trfafic to their site with the majority coming direct to the site and from Google.The Hype Machine is a great way to aggregate a lot of the better blogs into one place but I feel that they haven't yet got the most elegant of solutions.For one the blog to have most recently posted a track is placed first in search results, rather than the blog who broke the new track in.Related to this issue there are a lot of rubbish blogs on the Hype Machine who are posting just an image, a single sentence and a bunch of tracks. I think this detracts from those writing more extensive posts which carry a bit of background and an actual opinion.Finally the Hype Machine lets the blogs down by not listing posts which do not contain an mp3 and also by not having the ability to search for an artist or key word. Often I go to find out more information about an artist and have to revert to discogs or google because if a Hypem blog doesn't have the track then Hypem doesn't know about the artist.Ned
