Effects





Rane Seventy-Two offers you the ability to combine Hardware Effects (Flex FX) with Software Effects at the same time.

You can activate up to four Effects at once per deck. Three of them are software (provided by VirtualDJ) and one of them is hardware (provided by Rane Seventy-Two firmware).

For this reason the screen of Rane Seventy-Two offers four effect slots per deck numbered as 20, 21, 22 and 23 on the picture above.

The way effects work with Rane Seventy-Two differs from the way effects work with most other controllers.
You must "arm" an effect first before you are able to activate / apply it on a deck.
For this, you must use the buttons marked as 16, 17, 18 and 19 to arm the effects you wish to use, and then activate them by using the EFFECTS lever (marked as 27)

When you use the EFFECT lever, all armed effects are activated at once (chained effects).

Important notice:

By default the effects on Rane Seventy-Two are applied as post-fader effects. This means that they are applied after the volume fader setting. This mode allows effects trailing to be heard even after turning channels volume to zero. However for this reason you won't be able to pre-listen the effects on your headphones. If you wish to change this behavior you can change the fxProsessing setting in VirtualDJ options and set it to pre-fader.
