Native Instruments has kept the price of Traktor Pro very competitive with other similar applications, and this latest release is no exception. If you're a die-hard vinyl fan or have recently purchased a turntable, then Traktor PRO might be a great investment for you. The Native Instruments Pro version of Traktor has the ability to read all types of music files, whether they are MP3s or regular CD's. In addition to being able to load music through Traktor Pro's exclusive "MED" output, the software also enables DJ applications that support direct access from the device's soundcard. In essence, this means that the DJ can load the files he wants, then play them back through Traktor in accordance with his own preferences. Native Instruments has yet to announce any plans regarding a wider release of Traktor Pro.
The great thing about the new version of Traktor is that it includes a large amount of new and exciting plug-ins. These instruments not only make playing beats as easy as possible for beginners, but they also make mixing and scratching even easier for veteran DJs. By taking advantage of the thousands of plug-ins that come included in Native Instruments Traktor PRO, anyone can build a custom setup that is exactly how he or she wants it and can listen to music through the earphones or microphone without having to carry around a whole house of DJ equipment.
