Editors' reviewSerious DJs, look no further--Traktor DJ Studio busts out a power-packed array of tools surpassing the abilities of traditional DJ equipment. This versatile application gives you everything you need for live and in-studio mixing and remixing, complete with automatic beat synchronization, one-touch looping, a solid track-search function, interactive graphic waveform displays, and smooth crossfades at the click of a button. Best of all, Traktor DJ Studio has an intuitive interface, closely resembling a real-world mixing board, that makes it easy to set and save multiple loops and cue points in a track. Our main complaint is some of the cooler features only run (or run smoothly) on high-end machines, and you might not want to risk taking your nice laptop to a gig. Its price and performance mark Traktor DJ Studio for professional use.
Traktor Pro is the latest version of the leading digital DJ software, offering four full-featured playback decks, an integrated DJ mixer with studio-quality EQs and filters, 28 flexible performance effects, automatic beat-matching and intuitive control functions that accommodate DJs of all styles and experience levels. All crucial performance functions like cueing and looping have been revised and refined for intuitive handling in Traktor Pro, while extensive cover artwork support allows users to visually browse their music library in an especially efficient way.
What's new in this version:
Version 1.2 adds two additional multi-effects sections, three new creative effect algorithms, improved studio-quality time-stretching, support for the latest Pioneer and Denon hardware controllers.
