Play with Traktor in Spring break

So during the week I’m learning the traktor from dubspot. Just want to get some basic knowledge of what I can do with DJing, what effects and functions make senses for users (dancers) and what is fun to play with, then bring it to the foot :p

 

DJ Endo demonstrates the Novation Dicer as a controller for Native Instruments’ Traktor Scratch Pro. Trigger cue-points, control the beat-masher effect and loop functions using this turntable or CDJ mounted controller.

This has helped me narrow down to several effects. Lots of performances has combined those effects.

1.Beat-masher (grab a four count loop, more% = short loop)Cue and Loop 

2.Transpose Stretch : Pitch  (more % = higher pitch)  

3.Delay (100%)

Other settings:

4.Gater:  Noise: 100% Shape: 25%  Gate: 50~75%

5.Filter1 (I’m using FLT because it’s funky :p). 

6.Filter2 (Filter 92 pulse because it’s funky, too :p). 

Then my deck look like this:

A nice example of combining the effects
