Cue points are custom-set markers that allow you to instantly jump to any part of a track. Traktor allows you to store eight of these and you can access them by expanding to the Advanced Deck view by pressing the down arrow below the loop Active button.
While the deck is playing, simply press any of the empty cue slots from 1 through to 8 to set a cue point. Once a cue is active, it’ll turn blue and pressing it again will return the track to that marker. Snap, quantise and flux mode will all affect how this works so let’s take a look at those next.
Pro tip: There are a number of types of cue points: Fade In/Out sets the point you’d like that track to fade in and out when using mix cruise mode, Load sets the point where you’d like that track to start from each time it’s loaded, Grid adjusts the markers Traktor has set depending on the grid cue position and Loop automatically creates a loop when the cue is triggered.
