Native Instruments just released an update to its Traktor Pro 2 software. Version 2.11.1 adds the ability to colour code a track in Traktor’s browser which shows up in all your playlists and Traktor library searches. Stability improvements and minor fixes have also been implemented, including a simple way to save Remix Deck Sets.
Traktor Pro 2 has been around for a while now, and the last major update to the software came in the form of Stems back in 2015. While it was a solid, well-executed idea that was fully supported by Native Instruments (it released three controllers for it: the Traktor Kontrol S8, Kontrol S5, and Kontrol D2) it has yet to pick up steam with the DJing community.
The question on every Traktor user’s mind then, is this: What’s next for Traktor? It’s been a while since the last spec bump, so is Traktor Pro 3 around the corner? Your guess is as good as ours…
• Traktor Pro 2.11.1 is now available via the NI Service Center app. Check the Native Instruments site for more details.
