Learn to DJ with Traktor: Color Coding Songs | DJ Tips & Tricks | Beginner | Music Production | ENDO
If you’re a DJ and you’re using Traktor, color coding the songs in your collection will be very helpful when you need to find a track quickly. Simply choose the song you want to color code, and pick your own creative color system for each track. You can then search by color and Traktor will organize your tracks. Color coding your songs will help you visually during your set. If, for instance, you organize your songs by energy level, and you want a club banger, you know which pool of songs to choose from, and with color coding, you’re halfway to picking out a well thought out Traktor setlist on the fly.
