Now you’ve got two tracks playing in sync it’s time to look at the mixer section. Traktor’s mixer is fairly simple and mimics a standard two-channel approach.
As well as Gain and a one-knob Pioneer-style filter (left is low-pass, right is high-pass, centre is off) there’s an EQ with kill options, a Key knob to transpose a deck and headphone cue on and off.
The EQ is three-band meaning there are volume knobs for low, mid and high, but it can be changed to four-band in the preferences, splitting the mid section to a Lo-mid and Hi-mid option, mimicking Allen & Heath’s Xone mixer range.
Pro tip: Traktor’s crossfader curve can be adjust in the Preferences. Click the cogwheel again and click on Mixer. There you can adjust the crossfader curve from smooth to sharp, as well as set the auto-crossfade time and the EQ type.
