    Default Using Your Controller With Hip Hop

    Im new to the thread but i seem to notice the of lack of videos of people mixing hip hop with their controllers. I own a traktor s2 myself which i just recently purchased a couple months ago, but im starting to think controllers are not good for mixing hip hop unlike it is with dub or house music. For the most part my routine is just to cue a end point of a song and cue in the other. Dont really use alot of effects except for reverb, beat skip, flanger and gain knobs for build up, but iv seen the live dub and house performances and it would really be cool if you could cooperate that type of style into live hip hop sets with the traktor s2 or s4. Combining all three genres together would make a crazy set to.

    It's quite doable, you could do anything similar to house music et rest, loops with filtering and so on. Experiment.

    I mostly play hip-hop, and I used a VCI100 for years.

    I then changed to a pair of 1210s and TSP2, with an X1 and prefer it.

    The main issues it that controllers are fairly pony for scratching on, and there are very few controllers that can be scratched on accurately.

    please tell me you're not using "dub" as a synonym for "dubstep"

    yea thats what i hear dubstep djs themselves call it dub for short just recently started getting into and im feeling it and the whole live performance part of it would be cool to mix dubstep hiphop and house into one routine
