Native Instruments has just announced the upcoming release of TRAKTOR PRO and TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO, the newest generation of groundbreaking digital DJ solutions with both MIDI and time-code control. After years of software evolution, the latest version of TRAKTOR offers superior creative workflow, an extremely functional user interface, powerful sound-shaping capabilities, advanced control functions, and a whole lot more. Both applications were designed with a strong focus on efficiency and ease of use, making them outstanding performance tools for DJs of all styles and experience levels. And with computer-based DJing solutions now established as the standard, both set lofty new benchmarks in pro DJ technology. TRAKTOR PRO strengthens its position as the leading DJ software, ready to be complemented with the huge available range of DJ controllers on the market. Meanwhile, the new TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO combines the full-featured TRAKTOR PRO software with the acclaimed AUDIO 8 DJ interface and a set of high-resolution time-code records and CDs, for extremely responsive hands-on control through turntables and CD decks.
TRAKTOR PRO also introduces a new, highly optimized GUI that combines forward-thinking software interface design with familiar and highly efficient workflows. The concise, completely scalable screen layout has clear, high-contrast elements, which results in an interface that is highly convenient to work with under any conditions. All crucial performance functions, such as cueing and looping, have been revised and refined for fast and intuitive handling in a performance situation. Also, extensive cover artwork support, including the innovative “Crate Flick” feature, allows DJs to visually browse their music libraries in a new and efficient way. TRAKTOR PRO will be available on November 1st for a suggested retail price of $229, with TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO priced at $669.
