    Default Frustration: Traktor effects and track levels!

    Hey guys, Ive been really trying to pay attention to my levels as of late, especially my pre fader levels and trying to get each track matched up as close as possible for clean mixes. Now that im really paying attention, I've noticed with certain effects like peak filter, my tracks can shoot up to unpredictable levels, resulting in shitty sounding peaked out transitions. I know its something I have to work around if I want to use the effects, and not necessarily a setting I can change or alter. I was wondering if you guys had any tips on how to, at least in a sense, work and maintain your levels with effects that are unpredictable? Any help or advice would be appreciated! Thank you!

    you could always map the volume fader to the parameter knob aswell. set it on invert and relative with a low sensitivity like 15% (as a guess) so it drops the volume off a bit...

    ive noticed that echos and similar stuff will raise the volume, and a lot of other effects lower it. its quite annoying sometimes.

    Pretty please read about how each type of FX does and how it works in general before blaming Traktor.



    PS: Some dynamics won't kill you.

    I dno man. I've been to clubs where the music is so minimal it sounds like they're playing an 8 beat loop all night...
