    Ha. Yea if it is taking longer than expected, I let the loop go and pick it up later in the track.

    Hi guys, i'm new.
    I play with a Traktor x1 and whit this i control two channels. I want to change my style to play, but also if i read the post, i can't understand very well the technique for play with the loops. I play techno and tech house, so i nave to work with 32 and 64 beats. When i loop the first song what kind of effects can i use to make a build up?

    Well I usually create a 16 loop on my new track just after I mixed in a track. Why? Because you can just let your current track play out and you have loads of time to beatmatch. It's a great technique when you want to learn to beatmatch.
    Once you have the match you want, you can play with your knobs/faders (even the crossfader) to mix in the new track whilst the current one just plays out.

    I experimented with them in Serato and found I didn't like them. I prefer to just mix the tracks as they are, but I get why having an intro/outro loop could be really useful.

    Used at the right time, and in the right way, and with effects layered over, the loop can really add to either the incoming track, or to the mix-out. It's an invaluable tool, but can often be overused

    This is probably the way most users use this function.

    Yeah, the more I've been making mixes the more I've been using this tool. I mostly got my equipment so I could make mixes of my favorite tracks for myself to listen to and now I'm thinking about going back and re-recording some of them. I still use it pretty sparingly but the loop really can be a lifesaver on some mixes. Listening back on some of my older mixes now I can hear where it would really help clean up some old transitions which I couldn't quite get to work.

    Yes, sometimes you can really go overboard with the tool!

    using it for build-ups and sometimes also for mixing in the new track / mix out the old one
