How do you midi clock Traktor to Ableton with Traktor as the master?

or do you think deckadance is better to use?

Deckadance's browser is god awful. It's like they never used a computer before. Or at least it was on the demo.

in traktor enable "Send MIDI Clock" .... in Ableton under MIDI/Sync choose your interface and enable "Sync" to "On"

Is this not working for you? Have you used MIDI with Ableton before, do you know what to look for?

Traktor Pro with Ablton Live 7.0.10

I have tried to sync MIDI clock signals with Ableton and Traktor Pro. the setup works but most times the trigger finger looses functionality on Ableton.

My Setup.

Laptop 1:
MacBook Pro
OS/X 10.5x
Traktor Pro
Midi clock send enabled
Sound interface: AudioDJ8 (USB)

Laptop 2:
Dell PC
Ableton live 7.0.10
Trigger Finger (USB)
Sound interface: Presonus FIREBOX (firewire)

MIDI OUT from AudioDJ8 connected to MIDI IN on FIREBOX
Ableton MIDI Settings:
Trigger Finger: Track = ON; Sync = OFF; Remote = ON
FIREBOX MIDI: Track = OFF; Sync = ON; Remote = OFF
the EXT button enabled.

I start Ableton and load the set, the Trigger Finger is working fine.
When I start Traktor MIDI Sync, intermettenly, the Trigger Finger stops to work. Not sure what is the problem.

Has anyone heard or resolved this issue

to test I took Traktor out of the picture and connected an external rhythm device, yamaha Rm1x, and that works fine with the Ableton and trigger finger.

Need serious help, please..
