    Default James Zabiela tricks

    Hi

    I've been using traktor pro alongside a Reloop Digital Jockey 2: Interface edition and an Akai LPD8 for about 6 months now. What I was wondering is whether any of the tricks such as feedback looping that James Zabiela talks about in the following videos are do-able inside Traktor?

    feedback loop is basically a beatmasher or beatslicer in traktor imho, the transform trick can be done with the gater effect, and the build up noise one he does using the phaser on the efx and the cdj platter can be done with a 1/16 or 1/32 loop in traktor, whizz the jog wheel round quickly and do something with the mixer filter or effects banks

    Is it possible at all to use effects over the top of the feedback loop created with the beatslicer? How can i chop up and remix the loop like he does?

    more controllers, more mapping and more practice, a behringer bcr2000 is loaded with controls but the great thing about LIVE is that no matter how many you own, you can always think of something you could do if only you had more buttons and knobs.

    unfortunately no, apart from the mixer filter. just play with the parameters and it'll give the same effect as the chopping up zabiela does
