    Default Xone DBSeries Filtered EQs on a controller...

    I recently bought a Xone DB2, and I must say I realy love it... The only problem is that I can't use it on some gigs, since there's already a mixer at the venue and I have to plug a controller on the venue mixer instead of using mine...

    Long story short, I decided to emulate the filtered EQs you can found on the DB2 to keep on working this way... I personaly find this way of EQuing realy relevent on techno and house (wich are the main genre I mix).

    I did a mapping for my xone K2, and it works well...

    Now, how to do it :
    Traktor Gives us four fx slots, and one of the FX (Filter92) works as the db2/4 filtered EQs. The idea is to map each row to work as a FX control and to add gain and volume fader.

    I push the game a bit further and add a switch wich gives the opportunity to control fxs when the deck is not playing. The main problem was that if you use the fx to "eq" (in fact filter) the decks output, you ditch all the FXs and can't use it.

    I found a solution using a modifier for each deck, wich switch as you press play/pause the fx from Filter on the dedicated deck to macro fx assignable on others deck.

    If you have any questions or idea to port this filtered EQs concept on other controller, I can help

    Regards,
    Pierre

    Wow...
    So I'm already sorry about the mixing quality and the video quality... I've made it quick... Maybe I'll have to restart everything :$

    I don't mind video quality as long as sound is acceptable though. Take time and record something you find valid.

    Keep us posted..
