We stopped by the invite-only Native Instruments room here at NAMM 2019 where an upcoming Traktor Pro 3.1 build was on display. Traktor now has an option to show parallel waveforms, and you can stack as many as four decks, including four Stems decks.
Another new feature in the forthcoming update is the ability of the Traktor Kontrol S4 Mk3 controller to be used as a standalone mixer, meaning you can run your media players and turntables through it without it having to be plugged to your laptop.
Stacked waveforms have been something Traktor users have been asking for for a while now, and Native Instruments has finally implemented them. We think they’re practical and they look good, now the question is: are vertical waveforms coming next?
• Traktor Pro 3.1 is coming in February 2019. Check the Native Instruments site for more details.
What are your thoughts on this new update? Digging the parallel waveforms, or are they unnecessary? Let us know below.
