TRAKTOR PRO: Simplification and Visualization of the Interface
I am an Open Format DJ and have been working with Traktor Pro for about 6 years. Recently, I acquired the Kontrol S2 MK3, but the theme I am proposing here involves everyone who uses TRAKTOR PRO.
I am referring to the better visualization of effects on/off, both in the MIXER FX and in the Global section.
When we are at home, preparing and the laptop is on the table, everything calm and quiet, everything works very well. But in clubs and events, sometimes the laptop is at a certain distance, with all the excitement of the dance floor, lights, and LEDs, the small details of the screen require a little effort and attention to be read.
I believe that the main issue is the MIXER FX, the visual feedback it offers to identify which effect is in use works okay. But the feedback on whether it is activated or not is just a small circle that works when we are close to the laptop, but in practice (as described at the beginning of the text), it is not really like that.
It may seem like a detail that is not so relevant, but not everyone has a KONTROL S4 MK3 that offers almost complete feedback of Traktor Pro. Many Traktor users use customized TSI's to support effects, some even use only the keyboard and mouse, relying solely on the interface for feedback. Therefore, reviewing some interface details would benefit everyone.
I saw that the global FX section has not had layout updates since the first version of Traktor, I used it as an example because it seemed more understandable, but I believe that the greater concern is the MIXER FX, as its visual feedback is much smaller.
If it seems like too radical a change, can add it as an extra feature in settings or test it in beta versions.
I hope the idea is understandable in the image I created ;)
