Traktor Echo Trick: Pitched-Up Drum Fills
Jump in, drastically twist around the track, grab their attention and pop back the groove perfectly in time. Mix in equal parts but use sparingly.
That’s the recipe for a good effect technique, something you can use quickly for a little pizzaz that will impress your colleagues and the crowd. There is a youtube video after the break that is a good example of just that kind of a trick. While many of us have been wrapped up in Traktor’s chained fx, some golden nuggets in the advanced FX may have gone un-noticed. One example is a mysterious FR.R button on the ECHO, which appears to have shown up in the latest 1.1 release but then again, I may have never noticed it. One click and you will be hooked, when combined with several other buttons it can create sounds out of thin air!
