    Default What effects are missing from Traktor / Serato DJ / Pioneer / etc?

    Hey TechToolians,
    Got an interesting request on the article suggestion Uservoice from someone asking about fresh ideas for new amazing Traktor effects. Made me wonder what we could all come up with.

    Let's use this format in our answers (I'm using the original submitter's idea as template):

    Effect Name: Volume Shaper
    Intended Platform: Traktor
    Description: A simple traktor version of cable guys "Volume-Shaper",because imo it's very usefull having auto-shaped beats during mixing (example : cutting the first kick or the snares...etc) Here's VolumeShaper in action - it would have to be a bit simpler in Traktor obviously, maybe more like a gater that you shift/slip around the grid?

    The answer to this question is for NI to support VST effects.

    VDJ is much better at effects (incl. VST's) than Traktor - so maybe VDJ8 will expand on that...

    Effect Name: Ducking/Sidechain compressor
    Intended Platform: Traktor
    Description: The famous pumping effect of side chaining. In group mode the knob amount could be used to control the intensity of the pumping effect. In single mode one of the knobs could be used to shift the pumping effect further along the beatgrid. It'd be sweet if it could use the other track you're playing as a side chain.

    Not an effect per se, but it would be fantastic if all the delays had a 2/4 setting.

    Effect Name: 2/4 Delay
    Intended Platform: Traktor
    Description: add a 2/4 value to all delays. For those times when 1/4 isn't enough. Example:you want to echo out the last word of a vocal, but the word is longer than 1 beat.

    (also add to Beat Masher)

    Effect Name: Feedback loop (EFX-1000)
    Intended Platform: Traktor / VDJ / VST
    Description: A feedback loop is an adjustable size non degrading delay that overdubs the existing sample until you disable the effect. The way you use it is record a delay at 16 beats, then once it's recorded into memory kill the input and you can mess with the sample by changing the sizes, when you are finished playing with the sample you can go back to the largest size to repeat your pattern. It is awesome fun with techno and because it's overdubbing the loop thing's can go wrong which makes it all the more fun to use.

    EQ Isolated FX on all software would be nice, like they have on the RMX 1000 and DJM 2000.
