    Default Traktor effects: Your favorite techniques and combos?

    Hey everyone,

    Im still relatively new to mixing and Traktor (just the past couple of months at home but now I am starting to play bars and house parties) and I am starting to mess with effects more and more. While I am starting to find my own Fx preferences, I was curious as to how others use them. What are your favorite combinations for chained, your favorite settings for advanced, etc, and how do you use them?

    Also any suggestions?

    Thanks

    -Matt

    I'm getting some deja vu on this thread mate, you might kick things back off by adding to a previous thread

    over the last few weeks, i spent some time googling for stuff like this. i came up with the following list of what people mentioned as their "favorite" or "go-to" setting. unfortunately, i did not spend the time recording the name / email of every user, so w/e, credit goes to teh internetz...

    edit: the +1 / +2 were just notations i gave when i 1) saw it more than once on a site, or 2) used it myself and liked it. i have not experimented with all these just yet.
    edit2: it should be relatively clear that you could really just put any effects together and, with some hard work and timing, make them all sound well together.

    iceverb, mullholland, peak filter +1

    delay, gater, beatmasher

    delay, beatslicer, beatmasher

    beatmasher, beatslicer, iceverb

    delay, gater (+1)

    delay, flanger, reverb

    gater, ring modfulator, iceverb

    transform, reverb, delay (vocal)

    beatslicer, beatmasher, gater

    gater, reverb, transpose

    gater, format filter, reverb

    beatmasher, delay, reverse grain

    gater, reverb, formant

    slicer, formant, delay

    beatmasher, phaser flux, filter 92

    beatmasher, gater, flanger (scratching)

    reverb, lfo, gater (buildup / energy)

    filter lfo, filter 92, delay t3

    iceverb, preak filter, reverb (+1)

    delay (advanced / build out)

    Nice post. I think there is also a front page post on the DJTT blog where Ean Golden goes through his Top 4.

    i cant seem to find that...


    i use this when there is no track on that deck:
    gater at 1/8 or shorter/ i variate between that range to give a scratch sound
    with mullholled (sp?) at full
    and the lo-fi at 0, but you can play with that if you like

    and when a deck is playing:
    i copy the deck to the other side and do the same as before, but i leave the gater at 1/8 and do a sweep with the lofi that lasts 4, 8 or 16 beats

    Would be perfect if we could hear a 30 sec sample/video of each effect combo

    Who are able to do that?
    Let's collaborate on this?

    We can use the screentoaster (www.screentoaster.com) to record our screen while we turn the FX knobs as some of the build ups will be in a complex order of fx activation.
    Seeing the hardware is not necessary, just a video with the fx and the audio produced would be enough
