Instant Gratification-Style Effects for Traktor

If you are one of those guys who are willing to make the jump from Serato to another DVS like Traktor, I’m sure you are aware of the deep differences hidden beneath the surface of each DVS.  Serato is the king of simple.  It has been and always will be the DVS for a vinyl user who wants a digital version without all the hype and the bells and whistles.  Serato has had a hard time keep up with their neighbors next door, and because of this they have had to find ways to adapt and survive.  Adding a FX panel and a sampler is more like a gesture than a useful feature.  Those who want to make use of samples know that Traktor offers much more.

The trouble with Traktor is that it is very difficult to create the types of FX you want without doing your research and taking the time to put things together.  It is not as easy as you might think, and it requires some intense programming skills, or at least a programmer’s mind to have it the way you want.  Lucky for us, there are others that can do the hard work for us.
