Connecting your iPad to your PC:

In order to use Conductr, you may choose between a USB connection or a wireless connection.

Connecting your iPad to your Windows via WIFI:

Conductr works with a regular Wi-Fi network and even with an Internet cable connection.*
For a more stable connection, we recommend you create an Ad Hoc connection (see below) between your computer and your iPad. In order to do that, you must create a network with your computer and then connect the iPad to it.

*NOTE: If you are using a domestic Wi-Fi network, you will probably have to disconnect the preset firewall provided by most telecom companies.

*NOTE: You will probably have to disconnect the preset firewall provided by most telecom companies.

How to set up an AdHoc network for Windows 8 / Windows 10:

Microsoft has removed the option to create an AdHoc network straight from the Control Panel.

We have developed a specific script to help all Windows 8 / Windows 10 users to set up an Ad Hoc network automatically*.

Download Conductr AdHoc Windows 8 script
Download Conductr AdHoc Windows 10 script

This script will create a network called “Conductr” with the password: Conductr01

Once Traktor is running with Conductr as the selected controller and the server is enabled, you can run Conductr on your iPad.

*NOTE: If you know about programming, you can edit the script with a text editor in order to change the network set-up

Connecting your iPad to your PC via USB:

The USB connection for Windows (7 or higher).

  1. Connect your iPad to your computer with the iPad cable BEFORE selecting the server.*
  2. If you want to make sure that the USB connection is running, click on the server icon in your computer and select your iPad name.
  3. Open Traktor and connect to the Server through the Conductr app in the iPad.

*NOTE: iTunes must be installed to use Conductr
