    I learned today that you shouldn't plan a party if you have no clue how that goes.

    so tell me, why do some people prefer upfader mixing (which, if am not mistaken, is using the volume faders and leaving the crossfasder untouched)

    A longer upfader allows for a more subtler blending that lets you play two tracks and multiple decks together for a longer time.

    I use a combo.

    I use the fader for cuts.

    Buy usually use the up faders,....I find it blends better without dipping sound etc.

    Some X Faders are trashy.

    What do you mean by dipping sounds?

    And would u consider the x-fader on the vci 100 trashy?

    -agreed. When I was first starting out, I made the mistake of attempting to mix in a track with the X-fader to one side. That prompted me to leave the X fader centered and just mix with the up faders. Only recently have I begun incorporating both back into my mixing.

    Nope....not at all.

    if you not taking your VCI with you and you have to use the house mixer (which I have been doing since about a year or more ago), sometimes the xFader is fucked....or whatever. So I just started using the upfaders and it has stuck.

    There are a few settings for XFaders....sometimes on shitty mixers...when you have the fader in the middle....it makes the volume less so it does not redline.

    I use my EQ and gains....so ....

    For me the line faders vs X-fader is a choice of independent control over linked control. With the line fader, I choose what is happening independently with each channel. With the X-fader, you work on a software or hardware mixing curve that may not always suit the mix.

    For me: Long mixes + line faders, chops/radio fades = x-fader

    But it is really a preference thing.
