Live DJs: Your effects

Post by affeltaffel » Wed Nov 01, 2006 5:59 pm

How does your effect rack look like?

Currently I have 4 tracks, each pair sends to a pair of racks with:
Redux, Beat Repeat, Flanger and Ping Pong Delay

Would be nice to recieve som tips and inspiration in this thread :)

I have one main FX send using the 'utility' trick (search the forum).

I have 6 FX stuck in the send:

Phaser
Crunch-n-Munch
Electronica 1
Drum Roll (download from http://www.abletonlivedj.com)
Ping Pong Delay
Fade to Grey

I have 4 'decks' that can be routed to the FX send at any time. I use a button on my BCF2000 to route the whole signal to the FX send. Once there, I have wet/dry knobs for each effect (search for the wet/dry effect rack, you can turn any effect into a variable one - nice).

Thinking about adding some more - but has been fun for me.

i have made several templates. the one i use the most with my novation sl 25 is just two tracks: Cue A and Cue B assigned to A and B so i can crossfade and each track has an EQ3 in it with mapped filters. i use only one return track usually with a Simple Delay or Ping Pong on it and its parameter mapped. also i always use alittle Compressor II on the master track/fader

I couldn't find the damned thing anywhere! If anybody knows who I can give credit to for this rack, please let me know.

Until then, I'm just going to repost it:

Kudos to whomever created this rack. It's very handy. Just stick whatever effect you want to make variable in the WET rack effect chain and you're done.

Either drop it onto each channel that you intend on using the effect on or drop it on a send effect as I do.
