When starting out with Traktor there are so many things to think about and so much is unexplained. There is a lot of information in the manual, including a short cut keyboard map for you to check out. Traktor has included many great functions in the keyboard shortcuts, but as many people use traktor differently, the list of shortcuts may not be fully kitted out with functions that are appropriate to the way you like to use Traktor.
Whilst it’s very easy to load a deck, it’s not entirely obvious how to unload one. There is no way to drag the track off the deck, and no button included to unload a deck. You might ask why would you want to unload a deck in the first place, surely you can just load another track right over the top of the current one? Yes, this is true, but sometimes you might just want a nice clean look to know where you are at in a set, perhaps you’re passing over to another DJ using the same computer and you want to just clear down the deck as an act of courtesy?
As there is no default command set up to unload a deck, we have to create one. It is very simple and to do so you should follow the below steps, or watch the video:
You are now able to unload your deck using this keyboard shortcut.
