Native Instruments has just released the latest version of Traktor Pro 2. Now at version 2.8, the update includes Traktor Scratch Certification for the Rane MP2015, which means you can use it with Traktor timecode CDs and vinyl. Faster song library analysis and support for the Traktor D2 controller are among the improvements too.
As reported on Digital DJ Tips last week, Native Instruments has a new DJ controller, the modular Traktor Kontrol D2, with a built-in screen, and direct control over the Remix Decks and the new Stems multitrack DJ format pioneered by NI, as well as a novel solution to the problem of raising modular devices to industry-standard mixer height.
Native Instruments has announced a new multi-track file format for DJs and producers, called “Stems”. The new, open format allows a track to be released with four “parts” (or “stems”) – for instance drums, bassline, harmony and lead – that DJs can then use for advanced mixing using isolated parts of each track.
