Over To You: Can I Add A Controller To Traktor Just For Effects?

What separates Traktor users from the rest of the DVS world is their abundant use of chained effects and loops made possible through Traktor’s design.  Unlike Serato, these effects are quite powerful and are not limited to pre-fader sound – meaning they act independently of the rest of the music.  It’s not surprising that external effects units are on high demand for Traktor users.


Can a controller be added to Traktor for complete control over the effects?  The answer is yes.  It was designed to be mapped in a variety of ways for a multitude of different situations.  Mapping can get a little sticky here and there, but it is by no means difficult to program.
