This article will explain how to broadcast your Traktor mix with Mixlr. This article is for using the Traktor S2 controller with Mac.
As the S2 has no available inputs, you will need to set up an Aggregate Device and use Mixlr AudioLink to route the audio between the S2 and Mixlr. These instructions would apply to any MIDI controller with no inputs.
Create an Aggregate Device
Go to 'Audio Midi Setup' on your Mac, which can be found here.
Create a new device by clicking the '+' icon in the bottom left-hand corner, and select 'Create Aggregate Device'.
