With the introduction of the new Pioneer DJ DDJ-FLX4 came the latest in automated DJ technology. Smart fader allows DJs to easily mix between genres that have a large gap between their BPM’s. Using the feature synchronises the songs together and then slowly moves the BPM’s during the transition so you end up at the new song’s original BPM all whilst applying some neat echo effect at the end of the transition.
This is a very powerful tool, but like anything automated in DJ software, it needs a bit of practice to understand how to nail the transition so it sounds clean. The button can’t quite do everything.
In this tutorial, we demonstrate how to use the Smart Fader to mix music with wide BPM values. If you enjoy this tutorial then check out our Beginner Rekordbox Course. This course is applicable to the DDJ-FLX4 as well as any other rekordbox-ready DJ controller.
