    Default djing with all 4 sample decks

    I've been tinkering with this lately, and come up with some 'interesting' results, and found it more flexible than ableton - once i got used to the layout.
    only problem i've found is the extra prep work, and some loss to traktors flexibility *shrug*
    planning on getting a mix uploaded at some point, and some kind of blog post/detailed thread in a couple of weeks.

    Often thought about giving this a go too. The prep work would be huge. You would need to make loops of everything you wanted to use before hand. Then there is trying to make a fluid mapping.
    Keep us posted with your progress though.

    imo 3 sample decks + 1 full deck

    the full deck comes in handy when creating new loops straight into the sample decks
    Setup:

    Traktor Pro 2 / S2 MK2 / X1 MK2 / Audio6 / Pioneer HDJ2000 / Westone UM3X / rMBP 13 inch 2014 (2.8 GHz) / Focal Alpha 50

    Ive been thinking of this to. In fact i ran a whole mix in my head whilst out running the other day.

    Thinking of breaking down a number of tunes into loops and making a mini mix from just the loops.

    Probably wont do it cus im lazy but ...

    Personally I've never understood why people would want to DJ with ableton and clips but this seems to have a little more potential. Seems like the kind of thing you would do just for the sake of doing though.

    BUT!

    I have messed about *gooft*....playing with the samples provided and had a decent 30min or so session of playing tech....with a beat looped in the Track Deck A and another track looped in the deck B. Then dropping samples (one hits and loops) in over the top while transferring to and from A and B.

    Adding a Delay FXed scratch over it too.

    I can see this working out well....but as you all have said...PREP!

    Really nice idea brad! go for it!

    I will try something with sample decks C/D and a iPad too...
    I'm thinking of build something like the korg kaoss pad FXs, "sintesizers", white noises, flanger/phaser combinations.
    It really fits better with psytrance if we incorporate these FX in other decks then use it massivelly over the tracks (that are alredy produced with lots of FX).
    I don't see myself using instant gratification map with psytrance :P

    I wish I had one KP3 to play for some weeks

    mmmm....I dunno...the kp3 is not THAT hot.

    I mean....i have not used mine all that much and am sure its awesome tool the way Beardy uses etc, but i would rather use TSP's when playing. Much more fun, to me anyway.
