    Default Filter effect on Xone K2 and tractor pro

    Hello,

    Why is the filter on Traktor Pro using Xone K2 mixer flat?

    When I use the filter on a track it almost cuts the sound out completely
    instead of keeping the treble and losing the bass or vice versa.

    Does someone know how to fix this?

    I just want the filter to to fade the sound like on a standard mixer..

    Thanks,
    Digi

    You can change the filter type in the preferences menu. Mixer -> Filter Type -> Ladder (like on a pioneer djm), xone (allen & heath), Z (new traktor filter)

    The ladder-filter is the one with the most full sound. It gives an extra dimension & color to a track.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Ok those settings did help a bit.. but it still doesn't seem to have the same sound effect quality as a pioneers mixer or one of the Xone Db mixers..

    Does that make sense at all.. or am I smoking to much..

    When I turn the fader filter to the end either to 0/100.. I hear a softer version of the track as oppose to a hi or low treble or bass.

    Do I need more equipment perhaps?

    Could you maybe make a youtube video or soundcloud clip to show what you're talking about? The standard ladder filter in traktor sounds quite similar to the high resonance DJM-800 filter IMO. I'm not quite sure what it is you're expecting.

    It's not going to sound exactly like the filters on those mixers, but like FEP said it can get close. I like to add a little mid to my filter sweeps.

    Try using F92 in single effect mode, sounds like the most resonance you can reach in Traktor.
