Traktor’s definitely in the news right now, with the launch of the new Stems file format causing a lot of excitement among DJs of all types. So if you’re considering giving Traktor a try, we’ve got just the thing for you today: A brand-new seven-part Digital DJ Tips video training series to get you started with Traktor – for free!
An esoteric and expensive Traktor controller has just been announced, called Versus. It’s got eight faders, a smattering of buttons, four FX knobs and two browse knobs, transport controls, Midi connectivity, and a bunch of other controls you need to take extensive four-deck USB control of Traktor – but no jogwheels or sound card.
Last time we took a look at things you needed to know when making the jump from Traktor Pro to Serato DJ. Now we’re switching it up and listing 10 things Serato users need to know before they crossover to Native Instruments’ Traktor Pro software.
Native Instruments today announced the Traktor Kontrol Z1, “the world’s smallest professional mixer and audio interface”, which works with Traktor 2 on PCs and Macs, as well as being the first Midi controller for the company’s Traktor DJ app for iPad, iPad Mini, iPhone, and iPod touch.
We’ve not had chance to see it or test it yet, but from the press release and video, it looks like the Reloop Jockey 3 is the best new Traktor controller for ages.
