Before we begin, please make sure that you have the DaRouter and Traktor LE software correctly installed. If you have not yet received your software, please go to this page and get the software you need.
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 LE, you'll want to use the appropriate Traktor LE 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
Now that DaRouter is set up, let’s open Traktor LE.
When you first open Traktor LE, you should see the Setup Wizard pop up. If it doesn’t open, you can open it manually by going to HELP>START SETUP WIZARD. When open, you’ll see this window.
Where it says “Please choose your setup”, select Stanton.
Next to “Please choose your device”, select your controller (it will either be SCS3m LE or SC System 3 Traktor LE).
Press Apply when finished and you’ll return to the
Traktor LE main window. 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 LE 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 LE. 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.
Once you’ve correctly selected the MIDI input and output, press Close in the bottom right of the Preferences page and start DJing!
