    Default Either all you guys have 4 hands, or im doing something wrong

    I still havent got the hang of building up a song into a massive looproll/wave thingy choosing the cuepoint for the next song to drop into then stopping the rolling song, the echo causing it to continue, switch off effect and play the next song,

    and this is meant to be one of the most common transitions, so guys what am i doing wrong?

    you could map a fader thats right next to your volume fader for a channel to Beatmasher+Echo(or whatever you use for buildups), then as the fx increases by raising the fader, you can drop both faders to make the fx and volume of that channel go away. Then all u have to do is bring in the next song, by play button or whatever u use..

    hope that makes sense..

    What it comes down to is finding the right controller and making a great mapping. Not only do you have to find your own dj-ing style, but you have to fine tune your mapping. I was using Tratkor 3 for almost 1 year after Traktor Pro came out cuz my personal mapping worked great.

    For traktor pro, the x1 comes in very handy and its super easy to map.
