    Default Traktor EQ/Filter Settings

    Just curious as to what EQ and filter settings everyone uses in Traktor and why.

    I have just been using the default that is set when its installed. I see all the options that are there but I do not know the pro's and con's into which one to use.

    I like the cut on the new Z ISO eq, but I'm sticking with the xone filter. The ladder filter adds too much color, and the z filter just feels too finicky.

    Havent mixed internally for awhile but I always liked the Xone. The filters were never really that great, I always hated the added volume when turnin it clockwise/low cut

    P-800 ( Pioneer DJM 800 Emulated) and Ladder Filter. Still want to see a closer emulated Pioneer filter than the ladder style. I know you can select on in the FX section but just increasing the resonance isnt enough. The low pass filter on the DJM 800 not only increases in resonances but boosts and sweeps a little prior to filtering frequencies as you rotate the knob counterclockwise from the 12 o'clock position.

    erghhh. Can't stand the traktor pio emulator or the DJM800 filter, waaaaay too short knob movement for the LPF/HPF range . All about the Xone IMO, be it real or emulated.

    I was using Nuo most recently, but switch to the new Z filter to see what it's like. For a while I was using the xone eq with the two mids mapped to the singe knob. I liked it as well.

    Like photojojo, i used to use the xone eq, but mapped bass and mid lo to the same knob, with mid lo reaching only 9 o'clock. That and the xone filter.

    Now i'm using the z2 eq, and xone filter.

    Before 2.6 I was using Nuo EQs and Xone filter, but after fiddling around today I've gone with the P800 eq and Z filter.
