Traktor offers a flexible effects section, with up to six potential effects active at the same time. Each deck is assigned to an FX section using the 1 and 2 buttons below the filter knob in Traktor’s mixer.
Hover over the orange ‘1’ in the FX section above to get a drop-down menu with important options. Single offers one effect with three parameters to play with, while Group offers three chained effects with one parameter each.
Once you’re happy with your effects you can save a snapshot of the current chain, which will then become the default. The D/W knob stands for Dry/Wet and controls how much of the effect is applied to the incoming signal.
Pro tip: Traktor recently introduced a ‘post-fader’ option. This essentially means that any spatial effects such as delays and reverbs will continue to be heard, even if you drop the volume of the deck to zero or crossfade 100% to another deck. This can be handy for hard cuts and creative delay effects.
