Learn to DJ with Traktor: Setting Macros

 In Music Production

Setting a macro in Traktor means that you can use one button, knob, or fader to control multiple things at once. This can speed up your DJ workflow tremendously and give you all kinds of new possibilities for cool and creative tricks in Traktor. One secret DJ technique is using what we call “The Magic Hotcue” which will: play the track, trigger Hotcue 1, and sync the track. Learn to add commands that will let you drop a beat, change songs, or play a song more efficiently with just the click of one button. When you can do this, you’ve just mapped all of the fundamentals of DJing into one push of a button!
