Native Instruments Drop New Software Update for Traktor DJ 2

Browse By

NI is back with some more product software updates this time for Traktor DJ 2, the most recent and refined version of Traktor. This new update has gained momentum with the DJ community for its compatibility with iOS for iPads and plug-and-play integration with Traktor S2 and S3 hardware controllers.  

The new updates bring further improvements to the software, making what I thought was an already competent DJ software, even better.  Here are the full release notes:

New Features 

  • Transport Bar can now be assigned to the left, right, or bottom on iOS
  • Swappable Play / CUE buttons
  • New “CUE slide-to-play” allows for holding CUE and sliding into Play
  • Track genre is now visible, searchable, and sortable
  • Track time displays next to each track in the browser (iOS)
  • Increase the track length limitation
  • Improved Waveform readability
  • Stripe Waveform now has 3 bands
  • Tracks can now be played before analysis is complete
  • Clock in the header
  • Improved Browser view layout shows stacked decks when using waveform view (iOS)

    Fixes 

  • CUE button lights up when creating a CUE point
  • Shaking iPad no longer shows ‘Undo’ dialogue
  • Various other minor bug fixesNative Instruments Drop New Software Update for Traktor DJ 2

The new Traktor DJ 2.4 update features a ‘Slide-to-Play’ that works similarly to when your using the hardware controller and is useful for when Cueing in tracks and having the track continue to play. In case you haven’t seen nor heard of Traktor DJ, it is a refined free version of the flagship Traktor Pro 3 available for free on iPad iOS and Desktop devices. The App integrates exclusively with Traktor S2 and S3 hardware controllers and features 2 deck mixing, FXs, Soundcloud GO+ streaming integration plus some a very competent SYNC functionality for DJing standalone without a hardware controller. Did I mention it’s free?
