After listening to some of Noizes and Flickys mixes, it became apparent that these guys use effects to their full advantage.

I was wondering what ones get used most and when? I wana add some variation and flare to my mixes. Also wana use them for in the middle of a blend to make transitions more smooth.

I've already dabbled in the Low Pitch filter a bit after a bit more really.

Cheers dudes

i never had fx on my old setup but the mixer ive been useing recently has and i think like you said low pass filter, some flanger and even a bit of delay can work well in mixies as long as know how to use em.

yeah, basically the 'filter' on pioneers is all i'd use. and as mekar said, high pass/low pass on allen and heaths.

that's about all you need really. very rarely dabble with anything else. might bash out the phaser/flange every so often, but don't think they sound too hot mosta the time.

Fair shout, i just listened to your DNBA mix and noticed you used the low/high pass a bit towards the end, sounded sick. Like it was part of the tune or something!

Just thought i'd add this is mainly for three deck mixes, cos there is so much going on its hard to keep it clean in eqing terms. Fuck know how Noize does it but if hes willing to share a few tips it'd be much obliged! :D

haven't got hp/lp mang, just use the filter setting on my pioneer djm600.
it synchs into the beats at the press of a button. job done!

that phaser swoosh sound is me on the mic going swoosh

and the filter is me putting the mic in water then pulling it back out








lol on a serious note tho

on my djm600 , i use the phaser for the swooosh, that sounds ace if used propaly,, but uve gotta EQ ure Low (bass) to cut, in time with the using the effect otherwise it will clip dramticly and sound awfull
if u play around with it u will know what i mean

the filter is ok , but again u have 2 watch ure eqs just pressing the filter button will make the volume go louder and clip


on the A&Hs they are voltage controled filters , so when u turn them on they dont effect the volume as much as the poineers do

A&HS have the best filters. fact
