If you have switched on an effect in the TRAKTOR FX Unit but it is not audibly affecting the playback, the FX Unit to the corresponding Deck may not have been assigned. TRAKTOR's effect routing allows for flexible assignment of all two or four FX Units to any of the four Decks. It is important here to draw a difference between activating one or more FX Units and assigning them to one or more Decks. You can activate an FX Unit simply by pressing / clicking the ON button.
This alone will not lead to any audible effect, because you need to assign the FX Unit to the Deck in order to route the audio signal through it. To achieve this, follow the below steps:
- Make sure that the Extended or Mixer Layouts have been selected. This way you can actually visualize the FX Assign buttons in the TRAKTOR main interface.
- Assign the FX Unit to a Deck by the corresponding FX Assign button in the mixer section of the corresponding Deck. In the image below, we have assigned FX Unit 1 to Deck A. Any audio coming from this deck will now be affected by the effects you load into FX Unit 1.
