    this is not the right thread for this. please post this in a different thread and also include what you've already done, what versions you use etc.

    Does anyone know how to have your effects settings stored so when you return to Traktor the effect settings are the way you left them?

    The only thing that seems to be retained is the effect block itself, but I still haven't been able to have my effect's internal settings, as well my loop internal settings 'stick.'

    I would love to see the delay and loop settings be preserved. Right now, before each gig I have to reset my effects and loop settings.

    Tracktor 3 : Problem with crossfader

    Tracktor 3 was working wonderfully well. Yesterday I tried autoplay, which worked, but since then, the crossfader only works on deck B, no longer on deck A.
    Anyone has seen that happen?
    DJing tomorrow ... thanks for your help

    this doesnt belong in this thread, where you should GIVE some tipps & tricks, not ask for help...

    but anyways, check your deck panel and have a look at the little arrows.

    C'mon now, 'that' was only *one* of a few requests for information/ help or OT posts that have appeared on this thread.

    Perhaps there this thread should be restricted to *only* submissions of Traktor 3 Tips & Tricks and discussions of them left for other threads. Or perhaps someone would like to start a Wiki?

    <trick>
    For strange delay use,
    Play a track,
    Select the Delay effect (not 'On' yet),
    Hold down 'Freeze',
    Turn the effect 'On',
    Release/ un-toggle the 'Sync',

    Spacey, echoey fun should ensue!
    Experiment with the effect parameters and try continuing toggling the 'Sync' +/ 'Tap' buttons on and off.

    I'm not where you could use this practically, but then, I don't know what kind of music you play ;)

    Want to categorize your playlist into a deeper hierarchy than just one level under "Playlists / Mixes"?

    Just go to the Traktor3 data directory, add directories under the "Playlists" directory, restart Traktor, and your new diretories are there!

    this is only one of the bounce use. ;)
    <?trick
    If u don't like beatmasher, you can masherize in another, more elegant way,

    •load delay
    •activate it, but turn down the ammount
    •turn off the sync
    •now press freeze and turn it off /or press freeze and turn down the tempo parameter of delay and turn up it.
    trick?>

    <?trick
    •load delay
    •activate it
    •now turn Up/down the Deck tempo and Up/down the delay tempo
    •welcome in the psy world :)
    trick?>

    need some ambient textures...

    <?trick
    •turn down the Deck BPM, near -70% with key button activated
    •load delay
    •activate it
    •now turn Up/down the fine pitch and Up/down the delay tempo
    trick?>

    great topic.

    Read up on the manual about MIDI...it's pretty straightforward: In MIDI Setup, you choose the feature you want to control, click "Learn", and then move the knob/slider/whatever on your controller to assign it.

    I'm using the Hercules MK2 also, so you can download the TKS I use for it (attached here) and try it out.

    The escape key is really useful for this...if you started editing something and wish you hadn't, just hit escape and it doesn't save your changes.

    even more powerful in that issue:

    the *restore meta-data* button, if you accidentally changed a value AND hit enter... first go on the *edit* button, then the other browser buttons appear!
