  • just to add to that,, i have been crawling thru the tinterweb,, finally now know it does send midi,, found various bits and bats of software to help make a map for traktor,, the problem is with the platinum it goes into demo mode unless serato loaded.. so i am guessing serato sends a midi message to the mixtrack or something to tell it to stop demo mode,, so does anyone no where i can get such info.. I have decided that if this is not possible, i will be swopping the controller,, i dont want to be tied down to just serato.. thanks again

  • Hi Jason,

    Thanks for posting. I'll be happy to help!

    The Mixtrack Platinum is designed to work out of the box with the included Serato DJ Intro software. There is no license key to input to unlock the software; simply connect your controller to your computer, launch Serato, and the software will unlock automatically! Since the Mixtrack Platinum's hardware controls appear to your computer as a generic MIDI device, it can indeed be custom-mapped to any other DJ application that supports user or developer-created custom mapping. For mapping files, please reach out to the third-party software company directly. You can view which MIDI messages are being sent from the controller by using MIDI-Ox (Windows) or MIDI Monitor (Mac). Check out this helpful guide below that will include download links and step-by-step instructions: Using a MIDI Monitor to Test a MIDI Device

    I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any additional questions.

  • Thanks for prompt reply....
    Gotta be honest i am a bit surprised that as the company who make the product you are sending me to another site to use 3rd party software to get the information that I assume you must have,, ie the midi codes as you guys obviously made/programmed the device in the first place,, but please correct me if i am wrong... That being said I have sussed out how to edit a map in Traktor to work with the device so all not lost,, but do please tell me how do i take the device out of demo mode,, yes i can remap other softwares to use the device,, but clearly not to the full potential of the device when all it does is display random info on device,, no actual bpm or volume etc... I as i mentioned in my 2nd post am guessing that when the device reads that serato is loaded up gets some kind of message from the software to tell it to turn demo mode off. So again is this possible to recreate in other software... Hoping there is a solution to this and looking forward to your response

  • Please see my response above. The included Serato DJ Intro software will unlock automatically when the controller is connected to your computer and the software is launched. If you wish to use the Mixtrack Platinum with a software other than Serato, you will need to purchase a license from that company.

  • Jason,

    The Mixtrack Platinum is a standard MIDI controller, and as such, the Mixtrack Platinum's hardware controls appear to your computer as a generic MIDI device. You will be able to custom-map the controller to any other DJ application that supports user or developer-created custom mapping. As I've said before in my previous posts, the Mixtrack Platinum will unlock the included Serato DJ Intro software when it's connected to your computer. If you wish to use any other software, you will need to purchase a licenses from the software publisher.
