    Default Do you use the crossfader?

    I don't use the cross fader while i mix, just the volume (since i do not scratch) does anyone else do this or am i missing out something on crossfader mixing?

    I use the crossfader for tricks, but for blends ill use the line faders.

    Theres lots of fun to be had jamming the crossfader left and right switching back and forth between two songs. Or using the cross fader on the steep setting so you can play in a tone in a rhythmic fashion

    I use it when I want to. Tricks, blends, crabs, cutts, you name it.

    I do all my mixing on the crossfader and I don't scratch. I've always used it, and I think a well adjusted crossfader blends a LOT smoother than line faders.

    But I'm a minority in this.

    Very rarely only if I'm scratching or doing something fancy. I used it when I had a rotary mixer only if I needed to slam a track in and it would be too much of a pain using the knobs. On the xone 92 rotary I also used it to control the filters once in a while (Link VCF to Xfader button)...

    I use it to do some cuts sometimes, when the mix requires it.

    X fading is something I donīt like much, everyone has his style and I never do X type transitions, I am an equing maniac so corssfading is never my way to go. I love all the control you have with line faders and eqs, specially if you like to layer stuff. I often try to disable the crossfafer or unassign it if the mixer allows it so I donīt accidentally bump on it.

    But that is just me...

    I use the x fader, along with eq knobs... I guess it just feels natural to me, and I dont really have any dj friends in the area, so its kind of difficult to pick up new techniques.

    I'm not alone in being a minority? Or being a minority in this? Cause as of this post there are two of us that use the x-fader and don't scratch
