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!
In these seven videos you’ll learn everything from setting up to audio routing, how to import your tunes and perform your first mix, and the essentials of cueing, syncing, EQ, FX, filter and loops. By the end of this short, simple-to-follow video course, you’ll have a good idea of how Traktor works, and be better placed to decide if you want to go down the “Traktor route” in your own DJing.
Even better (especially if you’re just curious and don’t want to spend any money…), the training has been designed to work with the free Traktor Pro demo download, and with just your laptop – no controller or extra gear required.
How to get started
First, you’re going to want to head over to the special YouTube playlist we’ve set up with all seven videos in it, and watch the first one – it talks you through downloading the free Traktor Pro demo download, and getting it up and running.
When you’ve done that, just follow along at will – these videos are free to you for life, with no restrictions, so take your time, and we hope you have lots of fun getting to know Traktor!
