    Default Ending a DJ set?

    How do you end a set? I've seen Steve Angello, Tommy Trash, all big name DJ's use this effect where you loop the end of a track and shorten the loop gradually and then it ends on a big 'boom' sounding and that's how they end their set? Does anyone know what it's called or how to do it?

    Just like how you describe it. You loop it and make the loop smaller until its a high pitch sound. Maybe modulate the filter or pitch then launch an explosion sample. Unless this is a troll post.

    You only need an ending like that if you're the last DJ playing. Usually you want to play a track that's close to the style of the next DJ playing after you.

    I turn the dry/wet all the way down on the appropriate effect bank, then turn the delay and reverb parameters to max (I use the effects in simple mode.), as the song or phrase I have selected to finish with comes to conclusion I slowly tease up the dry/wet knob and A) either let the song play out or B) stop the song at an appropriate time. This creates a nice effect that really slowly trails off and if you (with a medium-slow speed) turn the reverb down it creates a kind of cool pitching up effect.

    That sound is them using the Roll effect then gradually shotening the length of it over time.
