Native Instruments Traktor Pro 2
On October 16, 2021, Native Instruments released Traktor Pro 2, to replace Traktor 3, which had been released in August of that year. It added an improved graphic interface, tweaked effects settings, and added new cueing and looping facilities. The main improvements over Traktor 3 were a better graphics engine, greater audio engine functions, improved MIDI support, better touch screen capability, faster start up, and compatibility with more operating systems. A few other minor improvements were made.
Some people might be confused about the fact that Native Instruments is not the manufacturer of Traktor Pro but rather a software company. Well, it should be noted that Native Instruments developed the software for Traktor Pro and then sold it to professional DJ and music producers. Native Instruments is a company that also sells popular native instruments like Traktor keyboards, VSTs, digital audio workstations (DAWs) and other music software. They are well known for developing hardware as well as software for the professional audio and live performance development.
One of the new features in Traktor Pro 2.0 is the Native Instruments-built in virtual DJ hardware. This enables you to input any song into your DJ software sequencer and have DJ-quality effects like reverb and chorus, along with high quality sound effects. Now, you can mix and match loops and even play a few tracks back and forth without worrying about the difference in quality. The virtual DJ hardware is especially nice when it comes to scratching and looping. Another nice addition to this product is the fact that Native Instruments has taken full advantage of the Native Instruments-like "onstage" feature so that you can perform along side your favorite live artists in real clubs!
