    Hi everyone, I wonder how i could assign new FX to the 4 central knobs (those in color)? There are like more than 20 different FX in this machine but I only can assign 8 different ones, that's it? Can someone charitable could help me? Thanx[​IMG]

    Yes, the center buttons select the Mixer FX, of which there are only 9 if you count Filter.

    Unfortunately you can't use them on the S2 or even the S3. You need the S4 MK3, which has the 4 FX knobs above each deck.

    Or you can add another controller like the X1 to control two FX units.

    You can use them, but you need a controller with 4 knobs per FX unit, like the Kontrol X1 MK2:

    It is also possible to remap Filter knobs.

    Add In > FX Unit > Dry Wet
    Add In > FX Unit > Button 1-2-3
    Add In > FX Unit > Knob 1-2-3

    Ok, and if I have an S3, then I can buy one X1 for the deck FX on only two decks, correct?

    How does that work?

    Is the X1 only assignable to Deck A and B, and that’s it?

    Or can the X1 switch quickly and easily between controlling the effects on all four decks during a set?

    Like, for example, the S3 can only control two decks at one time, so, would the X1 switch with the Traktor S3 controller?

    Or does the X1 have to be assigned in the settings, and therefore, you have to choose which two decks the X1 will control?

    If the X1 is only assignable to two decks in settings, then, I would say that switching quickly & easily is not really an accurate description, and I would say that it would make more sense to purchase two X2s to work all four deck FX with my Traktor S3.

    But at that point, you’re better off purchasing the S4, yes?

    I’m asking because I had to return my S3 and I’m about to buy a new one but maybe I should just purchase an S4.

    Please help!

    I use a X1 to control FX with my S3.
    When you start TraktorPro, you can asingn the X1 to control 2 decks and 2 FX.
    For example:
    - If you select A and B, you control FX1 and FX2 and you can asign them to decks A and B.
    - If you select C and D, you control FX3 and FX4 and you can asign them to decks C and D.
    I have mapped pads 1 and 2 and then I can use two FX effects with the four decks.
