New Traktor Pro 2 Is Here!
At first glance, all I can say is WOW! I’m extremely impressed with the new Traktor Pro 2 DJ mixing software and love the new look and feel.
The new “TruWave” technology, “SoftSync”, and revised high-visibility GUI are just a few of new features that make T2 leaps into the future of DJing.
I immediately checked previous problem spots with syncing and found them to be solved. I typically play on CD for gigs but occasionally when I’m traveling and don’t have a mixer and cdj’s at my fingertips I like to play around with Traktor on my MacBook and sometimes record mixes. I also like to use Traktor for sorting out playlists and hearing how well tracks mix together before I burn them to CD.
The leading synchronization features in TRAKTOR have been further expanded with a new “SoftSync” function that provides a unique combination of convenient automatic beat-matching and hands-on control. By keeping the tempo of multiple tracks in sync without manipulating the phase, SoftSync accommodates the widest possible range of mixing techniques both in Traktor Pro 2 and in Traktor Scratch Pro 2. The effect selection of TRAKTOR has also been expanded with four additional types that offer unique ways to create dramatic breakdowns and other typical performance effects, including a tape delay emulation and the new “Bouncer”, increasing the arsenal to an unparalleled assortment of over 30 algorithms.
I also love the new interface. It’s much cleaner and just feels better. The new “TruWave” technology displays tracks and samples in all four decks with high-resolution multi-colored waveforms. It gives deep insight into the spectral properties of the music, visualizing both individual rhythmic elements as well as general sonic characteristics. With four selectable color schemes, an extra-wide zoom range and subpixel-accuracy waveform rendering, TruWave allows DJs to read their tracks visually for even more intuitive mixing. TruWave looks and feels great!
The new TRAKTOR generation is based on a revised high-visibility GUI for intuitive operation under all conditions, and now offers up to four powerful Sample Decks as well as the unique Loop Recorder. While each Sample Deck can add up to four simultaneous samples or loops to the mix, the Loop Recorder allows DJs to capture audio from various sources on the fly and drop it back into the mix at any time, opening up creative techniques far beyond conventional DJing.
Native Instruments is now offering a full range of hardware products to compliment Traktor Pro 2 Software as well as a new entry level Traktor Duo 2 and Traktor Scratch Duo 2.

Personally, I’m more excited than ever to use Traktor. I travel a lot these days and it just isn’t possible for me to carry my mixer and cdj’s everywhere I go. With Traktor Pro 2, the Traktor Kontrol S4, and Bose Computer MusicMonitor Speakers, I can carry everything in a carry-on bag and be mixing anywhere… plus I’ll be even lighter minus the UDG Slingbag full of CD’s… hmmm… maybe I could even stop burning cds. I’m now more convinced than ever to go with Traktor as a total DJ solution!
