If you are running an OSC connection via OSCulator between your device and your Mac, you can take advantage of extra display features that are enabled by this type of connection. Certain features on your touchscreen will change colour according to which deck is the Focus Deck, but the most obvious function to use this feature is the Cue Point triggers.

If you save Cue Points with each track in Traktor, they will load on your device when you load a track into a Traktor deck. These are colour-coded to be the same as they are in Traktor:

      1. blue = regular cue point

      2. yellow = load point

      3. grey = beatgrid marker

      4. green = stored loop marker

      5. orange = fade in / out points (Cruise mode)

If no Cue is saved against a Cue Point, then no trigger button will appear. Below is an iPhone screengrab when a track has been loaded into Deck C with Cue 1 as a Load Point; Cue 2 as a Beatmarker; Cue 3 & 6 as regular Cues; 5 is a stored Loop; Cue 8 is a Fade Out point. No cues are stored in slots 4 & 7.

Cue buttons on iPad layouts work in the same way as these iPhone screengrabs. On iPad layouts, Cue Triggers share the same page as Loop & Move controls.

If you want to edit or store more Cue Points, simply tap ‘Show All’ to display all buttons. You can then Store, Delete and re-Map Cue Points. These buttons are hidden by default to avoid being triggered by mistake when playing live. If you want to hide Delete / Map / Store again and restore the button colours, just flick between two different Focus Decks (top right corner).

If you are a PC user, or connect by Bridge or CoreMIDI instead of OSCulator, your buttons will not change colour according to Cue State. Your buttons will, however, illuminate when a Cue Point is stored behind them. The buttons will stop being illuminated once triggered, but they will continue to fire their Cue Point when pressed.

The iPhone screengrab below shows the Cue page for a CoreMIDI user who has loaded a track into Deck A with Cues stored in slots 1, 2, 3, 5 & 8.

Slots 4,6 & 7 are empty.
