While you won’t be seeing an iPad as the digital system du jour just yet, you can expect more folk to consider the platform as an option for mixing while on holiday or in transit thanks to its growing sophistication.
The latest version of Traktor DJ brings Audiobus integration, letting you chain it with other iOS apps so you can add effects and process or record your output in a DAW.
Traktor DJ for iOS has its first in-app purchase: SuperSlicer. Think of it as the existing Slicer function on steroids. With the new SuperSlicer, you can “slice up your tracks and rearrange your loops using Scratch, Break, Reverse, Slice or even Pitch-shift effects”.
Digital DJ Tips reader Shaun writes: “Are iPads slowly starting to become more acceptable pieces of equipment for DJs to use? And, would you expect to find them in DJ booths up and down the country in the near future?”
Traktor DJ has been updated, with “Flux” (slip) mode, enhanced looping, new tutorials, and compatibility with the imminent Traktor Kontrol S2 and Traktor Kontrol S4 Mk II hardware.
A “hands on” first impression of the brand new Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S2 with Traktor DJ, and the Traktor Kontrol S4. Are they really much of an improvement on their predecessors?
