@Darren > A mixer doesn't need to be "Traktor Certified" in order to be a MIDI controller; that's only for people wishing to use the mixer as an input for their timecode to pass through to the software, then have the audio output through the same device.
In order to control the software with the mixer, you CAN load a TSI file, but if you aren't familiar with the mappings, then it may not do what you expect.
Start simple -- did you install the drivers for the mixer? Is it detected as a MIDI device? Is the MIDI turned ON on the mixer? Is the computer receiving MIDI signal from the mixer? Is the software?
