Reset / Disable FX on Load

Please could we get the option to reset / disable the active FX when a new track is loaded?

Sometimes when doing very quick mixes I will use the Echo Out effect but occasionally I will load another track and forget to switch it back off, when I cut the next track in it's totally silent until I remember to switch off the Effect :-/

Great idea! I hate it when I accidentally leave a subtle effect like Phaser running and mix in the next song. I also requested some sort of flashing button or illuminated button to indicate DJ-FX are active here - serato.com

I'll +1 this too.

A reset on each load would be handy.

Bump!

I have the very same issue as OP. It seems a bit counter intuitive from Serato to leave a FX like "Echo Out" engaged when a new song is loaded.

It gets me every single time. I engage echo out, I load a new song, I begin my transition only to realize the FX is still engaged.

Because the hot keys are lit in standby and flash when activated, seeing a lit FX key appears as in standby mode to me. (Keys Should Be Consistent)

Please make the FX button lit while in standby and flash while activated. Also, please reset the FXs to standby mode when a new song loaded.

pitter patter, pitter patter, pitter patter.... thats all you will ever hear.
I have a theory as to why stuff like this is not addressed. While a lot of DJs use FX features, a greater majority don't. And so there aren't enough requests for these things in terms of a request ratio.

So although it makes perfect sense to make something like this work in a more sensible way, feature additions or changes I think are measured by popularity. So there you have it. Non-innovative users dictate what happens.... nice. Guess it makes some sense because if the software appeals to *most* people, then thats the market.... = $$$

Now I'm confused. lol

Judging by the numbers some of these requests have, I'm not convinced of that.
Serato seem to be ignoring almost all of them!!

Don't know if you guys that posted here still have a need, but I will have a solution for this shortly. Solution is in testing phase at the moment. Let me know if still interested.....
