I’ve installed both, Mixxx and Traktor 3 software on my Windows system. And I use a Native Instrument Traktor Z2 controller using an HID mapping for Mixxx.
There’s always a SYSTEM process
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Native Instruments\Hardware*NIHardwareService.exe*
running, which somehow communicates with the hardware controller, even if the Traktor 3 software wasn’t started at all.
This interferes with the LED control of the Z2. To get my Mixxx HID mapping work, I need to use Administrator rights to kill this process.
Do other users with NI hardware experienced the same problem?
What’s the best way, to handle this case in a controller mapping?
I expect this to be the standard case for a new user, who installs Mixxx for trial. With the interfering NIHardwareService process, his first user expierence would be very disapointing.
