If you’re a beginner DJ, or a DJ who just purchased Serato DJ Intro, you may not know where to find your special effects. In this DJ quick tip, I show you where your special effects are located, how to use the drop down menu to view them, and how to increase or decrease, the volume of each effect – also known as “Dry”, “Wet” or “Depth”.
When you pull up Serato DJ Intro, all the way to the left hand side (right below deck one yet right above your music library) you’ll see a button for “DJ FX”. Click this button to display your special effects menus. Notice there’s two separate sections. The one on your left controls your left deck (or channel 1). The one on the right controls your right deck (or channel 2).
Also, by using the drop down menu, you can control which special effects you want to use. In my experience, I don’t feel they all work well with every song. It’s important to test them out and practice when and how often to use them.
To increase the volume of each effect, you simply turn the dial under the term “Depth” up or down. This is also sometimes referred to as Dry or Wet. Dry meaning no effect. Wet meaning more effect. (Basically the volume, or intensity of the effect).
Hope this quick tip helped you, if you were looking for the special effects buttons on Serato DJ Intro. If you’ve already been using the effects, I’d love to hear what you like best about them. Or, if there’s any other topics you’d like me to cover please let me know in the comments section below. Thanks everyone! Hope you’re all doing what we love! Playing music!! DeeJay Shelly
