Im in the same limbo as you mate. Why has pioneer not uploaded this TSI file in the first place. I really dislike VDJ's effects and its layout in general
[SOLVED] DDJ ERGO Traktor Mapping
I am now owner of the new DDJ ERGO. It is shipped with Virtual DJ Software. But i don't like VDJ. Does anybody have a mapping for Traktor or do you know where I can find and download it?
Thank you for your answers

According to this link, there will be support for this as of early November....
Yeah just saw that. I know TSI files can be a long process but I have no understanding why this was not shipped with Traktor in the first place like the T1.
I just bought this nice controller in Belgium yesterday, came back home, wanted to use it with Traktor, because, on all websites reviewing is stated the following (but in dutch): "Ergo users using Traktor can configure their software with the included TKS-file". But, it's not on The Pioneer DDJ Ergo CD. Same problem if you have Virtual DJ already installed. I have the Pro version, I can't find the mapper file either, neither in my VDJ Documents folder after installing the LE over my PRO version, only Ergo Skin-file shows up...
@Warren: Traktor recently released their new Traktor controller, that's why... :)
Yeah the S2... no point of buying it since I was already with Scratch Duo 2 and moved from timecoded CDs and had to move on with Midi due to space relocation from home :\
Traktor would of got more sales if they increased the size of the jogwheels ;)
The TSI file for the ERGO does exist, because the Pioneer technician who gave me a demo of the ERGO, runned it both on Traktor and VDJ... He even said that maybe ITCH would be compatible in the future, but that ball is in de Serato-camp. So the TSI and VDJ mapper file are just a question of uploading and making available on Pioneer sites...
Appreciate your comment Sven. But thats not helping my case :( The TSI file with VDJ must be actually written into the software unlike the TSI files that act like plug ins for software. Ill just have to simmer down and wait for the download in November :/
First and foremost, ITCH will NOT be supported on the ERGO. Second, an official TSI file will be available for download in November. Until then, you're certainly welcome to make your own.
So I have to put my brand new Ergo in my closet till half of November? I am already using VirtualDJ Pro, and i don't want to "downgrade" to LE, so I tried if it worked to type over all mapper values from the LE to the PRO, which took me 1 hour. After some research, I found out that the ergo mapper code is somehow inside the program code of LE...
Traktor then, again, Pioneer previews sayed: "Ergo users using Traktor can configure their software with the INCLUDED TKS-file" But it isn't included. This has nothing to do with the Ergo being officially launched half november or just now, the boxes are all the same I guess...
If you say I'm welcome to make my own TSI-file then I'm doing Pioneer's work, and I payed for an INCLUDED TSI-file...
@Sven > Not at all. I already had pro, installed LE in another folder, and it installed all the controllers and skins to the VDJ folder so when I opened Pro, all I had to do was change the skin and check that it picked up my controller and soundcard.
As for Traktor, yes, you have to wait. It's not even available in many countries yet!
You didn't "pay" for a TSI file, Pioneer is providing one for their users free of cost.
INCLUDED means INSIDE THE BOX to me but ok, end of that discussion.
For me that doesn't work with VDJ, I am unable to find an xml mapper file inside my VDJ folders...
@Sven > And nowhere on the box or documentation does it include anything to do with Traktor. I'm sorry if marketing mislead you to believe that it would be "in the box". As I mentioned, there is a TSI file coming soon.
If you've installed the LE edition that was included with the ERGO, it will have installed a skin and a mapper file. Look in the VDJ folder:
PC: My Documents\VirtualDJ\Mappers
" I really dislike VDJ's effects and its layout in general"
My guess is that you've never actually used it then, or you'd know that:
1) VDJ can use any VST effect on the market (i.e. thousands).
2) VDJ can be skinned, to look any which way you please.
So the "layout" (which is just one skin of thousands) and the effects can be pretty much anything you like, and not just what comes included.
For those who were looking for a TSI file for the ERGO -- now that it's officially launched worldwide, the TSI is available for download!
I've just purchased the Ergo. I already have VDJ Pro. I installed VDJ LE. LE seems to work fine but Pro isn't picking up the controller. It comes up under sound card and i've applied the Ergo skin to Pro but when i try and use the controller nothing seems to work. When checking under mapping and scanning for new devices the Ergo does not show.
A prompt response would be appreciated.
@ Ari > It might be more convenient to start your own thread about the DDJ-ERGO as this is a different topic and VDJ specific. It would also be good to list what type of OS and what version of OS you are running on your computer?
I have a problem, If I play with virtual dj LE than there is** interference** on my speaker and if I play for 20 min. than virtual dj blocks and the ddj ergo doesn't react any more.
When I bought it, I got the Traktor Due 2 with it. I have put the tsi-file into traktor but** not everything works** (volumefaders, crossfaders, ..).
Can somebody please help me ???
@ Gregory Van Damme > It might more convenient to start a new thread for your problem since it is new, and doesn't refer to needing a Traktor .tsi file. It also makes it easier for Pulse or Gavin to see the new thread and reply.
Also, if you could please provide what OS, and what version of OS you are running on your computer?
Did you download the .tsi file from the Pioneer website?
Upgrade firmware to latest version
I work with Windows Vista and I have the tsi-file from the link in this forum. (the laptop is an Acer Aspire 6920)
And I downloaded the firmware at the same link.
@ Gregory Van Damme > I'm assuming since you downloaded all the files from the Pioneer website, that you also downloaded the instruction files from there and followed them to a tee as well?
Have you tried what Azu mentioned and made sure you're using the latest version of Traktor 2?
As for the problems with VDJ, does it seem to "lock" up every time you use it for more than 20 minutes? When it seems to "lock" up, have you checked your Midi device connections to see if the ERGO is still connected and recognized by your computer?
Let me know when you can.
I have download the firmware and the tsi-file from this link http://pioneer.jp/support/download/dj-e/ddj-ergo-v/.
I have updated Traktor due 2 on the service center.
What do you mean with lock, if there is no conection with the controller I have tried to apply again at the Conf.-menu, but it doesn't work.
Gregory (I come from belgium, maybe you recognized it )
download and run this firmware updater and proccess update firmware to version 1.10
download TSI file for Traktor 2, unzip and import to Traktor 2
I have done that allready, can I skype or something else for share my screen with you ?
Send me a priivate mail at email@example.com
@ Gregory Van Damme > I'll send a message to Pulse as he has his ERGO on him and know's more about VDJ than me. Just to let you know for future reference, you don't need to provide your e-mail address in a post as Pulse can get your e-mail you used to sign up for the forums.
Best of luck with your ERGO.
My Ergo is also disconnected from the software (Traktor) as well after more than 40 minutes, but here you thought it was because of poor contact in the USB cable, it is still a test. Sound and lighting on controller work still fine, but controller not send midi command.
I have the same problem with vdj Le but not 40 min., I don't know with Traktor because not everything works (the volumefaders, crossfader, deck B).
What are you going to do ?
I've been running the demos over the past week with ERGO running Virtual LE on a PC for 3 hours at a go and had no problems with it. I'll give the Traktor thing a try today before the demo.
Maybe it's because you work with an macbook ?
