just got my CNTRL-R two weeks ago and started using it with Traktor and Ableton.
Although I love the tool I experience to flaws that bug me a bit - I wanted to know if these are standard or if my specific CNTRL just does not work as supposed:
1) The 8 faders are mapped in Traktor as a direct Fader/Knob, so Traktor recognizes their absolute position. But, from any extreme position (with any fader) I am able to move it nearly 1 / 4 of the way before a movement is recognized in the software.
2) The buttons in the two lower rows seem to be overly sensitive. There is a great chance that one pressing of the button is recognized as two activations. (Which is really anoying, as I do Beatjumps and Loops with these buttons). I worked with several different Midi controllers before and did not experience such behaviour.
And, less important but nice to have:
The led colors can only be set to fixed speed ranges. For certain applications (like giving a LED feedback on a track's gain) it would be very helpful to be also able to change these speed ranges (e.g.: two colors sit von 0 and 127, but I would like to have them on 0-20 and 107 - 127) .
I did not find a possibility to map the LED rings once the encoders are in relative mode - I only see a meaningless blinking of the rings - any way around this?
