Traktor Pro 3.4 has arrived, with an emphasis on improvements to the library/browser. As revealed in our Traktor 3.4 Beta news story, the software now has “Smartlists” (rules-based playlists, akin to Smart Playlists in iTunes/Music), which is a major omission finally dealt with. Secondary sorting is also now available, but there are a whole host of other improvements and fixes too.
These include respecting the playlist order from iTunes/Music, sharper graphics (Mac), and dozens of small improvements to the GUI, layout and operation of the browser, to bring it into line with modern OS norms. A lot of niggly bugs have been squashed too, some going back years. It definitely feels like a major housekeeping exercise, so it is well worth checking the full changelog on the NI forum if you’re a long-time Traktor user – you may well be pleasantly surprised.

We found the visual improvements to be obvious on a Mac, with scrolling waveforms now so much smoother and sharper than they have ever been before, which makes the software feel so much more polished.
Finally, Rane Twelve MkII integration has been added, meaning there is now a truly world-class turntable controller available for use with Traktor.
• Traktor users should access this free upgrade to Traktor Pro 3.4 via their Native Access apps.
