Native Instruments has just announced the public beta of Traktor Pro 3.5, adding music streaming to the popular DJ software, via Beatport LINK and Beatsource LINK integration.
Users get access to the full suite of Beatport and Beatsource LINK tools and functions, including:
- Access to LINK playlists, charts, DJ charts, DJ sets, and curated playlists
- The ability to add cue points, loops, and comments to tracks
- The ability to create unlimited Traktor playlists and smart playlists using Beatport or Beatsource tracks
What about offline caching?
Playback in offline mode of up to 100 tracks is coming with a second public beta version in a few weeks, Traktor tells us. Both Beatport LINK and Beatsource LINK offer subscriptions that enable this feature, although they do cost more than the basic subscriptions.

Worth reiterating that DJ software always loads the full track from your streaming service anyway, so even if the internet temporarily drops, the music will carry on – it’s just the loading of the next track that would be affected.
