    Default Cool FX combos/chains

    Would be really interested to hear all the awesome FX combos/chains you guys know of. Any FX chains or just FX tutorials or articles will work too. I use Traktor, so Traktor oriented effects would be choice. Would be really appreciated for responses of any kind but would be awesome if you guys could reply in this manner. Thank you

    1) FX Chain (Ex. Beatmasher+Lo-Fi+Reverb)
    2) A video of it being used.
    3) The time signature where the start of the FX chain is being used. (Ex. "At 0:48")

    I'll start by asking a question about a specific video.



    How/what did Farace do at 0:37 for that freeze/chop effect?

    pretty easy to recreate. just a beatmasher and a delay freeze and that´s it.

    he has the effects pre-mapped to the buttons.

    armyofme4340 is a mapping guru (she helped Ean map the VCI-400 EGE) and she is super in depth with her mapping tutorials. check out her videos - http://www.youtube.com/user/armyofme4340/featured

    and also check out the threads she's started in these forums - http://forum.djtechtools.com/search.php?searchid=57072

    When you say beatmasher+delay freeze you mean Beatmasher+Delay+Pause+Play? I will definitely have to check her out, thats cool that she helped Ean map the VCI. I'm looking to do a custom mapping on my Akai MPK Mini for FX & such. Thank you for the input man

    You'll see what delay freeze means when you get into the videos. It's a pretty commonly mapped effect.

    I think she does it here -

    There's a free toggle on delay.

    Using it with gater can create some insanely nice effects. One thing to say I have effects not in chained mode instead I have my x1 controlling 3 and 4 an either my ns6 or total controll taking care of 1 and 2 which allows for some nice effects.

    I know chained/group mode is great but I prefer ring able to adjust all parameters of the effects to create a more flowing effect instead of the normal chained effects which I find to be way to much glitch for the style I use them in.

    Just my 2c

    Clearly that man needs more midi fighters... o.O Also, someone's been taking lessons on how to touch a midi controller from Ean
    Decent mix though - I liked his use of the vocal sample around 4:30.

    I have a problem with people who accentuate button presses and knob turns in this way. It doesn't make the mix more interesting. If there's anything I'll tell new DJs about effects it's not to overuse them.

    Effects complement your mix, not define it.
