I usually have my crossfader switched off so I don't accidentally bump it. I took the plastic cap off as well so I don't even glance at it. I'll have to try it out though!

You're right - I play house.
I can definitely see uses for it turned on with house - but I also feel it is more fun, for me, to use the faders.
Awesome info guys,
Im gonna have a long practice session today with all the above mentioned techniques . I think my practice sessions are so frustrating is because im not actually practicing my mixing techniques but instead trying to make a sweet mix....(without a solid knowledge mixing techniques).
All great techniques... I love the echo out, I use it a lot a'la Jazzy Jeff...
But it's important to vary it up, don't get caught doing the same thing over and over again...
Those are a few I use, but there's a bunch of ways to mix two tracks together. It's the art of DJing, and takes practice. Just mess around with the buttons and learn how they all compliment a given track.

I sometimes like to fade out using an echo to make a huge tail on a backspin.
I like to either echo out and switch or talk my way through it sometimes.
