    Default What is your guilty overused effect?

    Most DJ's are aware of the overuse of certain effects when less experienced or even experienced DJ's get their hands on them. The overuse of Flanger for example. I am sure we all have an effect that we know we use far to often but use anyway.

    Mine would have to be using and echo while mixing 2 tracks together. Along with a combination of Phaser and Filter when coming into a drop to create build on the DJM 800.

    What is yours?

    Delay freeze. It just sounds so good when dealing with a drop in energy between tracks.

    For me it's probably the gater.

    Don't know, don't use much effects.

    Maybe killing the bass for a couple bars and then kicking it back in....it's so simple yet effective (pun intended )....

    Doing a quick fader push of the incoming track on the beat so you get an effect like

    1 - - - | 1 - - - | 1 - 3 - | 1 2 3 4 | DROP

    Usually with some EQ or filter twakage as well.
