How to lower the bpm almost to a halt?

I am using Traktor Kontrol S2 MK2 and Traktor 3.10.

I would like to end a set by giving the impression the track is progressively going so slow that it eventually stops.

When I try to do that with the slider I am limited by the range it allows, which is not enough. I also tried to divise the bpm by 2 and then lower it but it still does not do the trick.

How could I do that?

Thanks for reading and any clue to do that.

    Maybe the tape stop effect is what you are looking for. That will slow the track down similar to when you stop vinyl on a record player.

    You can also change the bpm range of your pitch faders. But then they would be set to 100% just for the end of your set, which kinda is meh when you want to adjust the bpm just a tiny bit. See manual on how to do that.

    The Tempo Range selector will allow you to change the range via the buttons on your controlle ror computer keyboard. Have two buttons for this operation.

    Button 1 = Set Range to 100%

    Button 2 = Set Range to your normal setting 8% etc.

    somewhat related, the slowest bpm a human can "feel" seems to be around 33bpm if it matters for your usecase:
