TRAKTOR DJ works with Apple's Core Audio framework on iOS devices to stream audio to compatible audio interfaces. This enables you to stream audio to two separate stereo channels for both the Master and Cue / Monitoring outputs. This way you can pre-listen to your tracks in stereo independently of the Master output. Learn more about the audio interface configuration in TRAKTOR DJ here.Note: TRAKTOR DJ allows to select one audio device at a time. You cannot use an external audio interface and the internal headphone jack of your iOS device at the same time.In principle, you can use any class-compliant audio device with TRAKTOR DJ. This includes dedicated iOS audio interfaces which connect directly to the dock connector as well as standard USB audio interfaces requiring optional Apple camera / lightning adapters which provide a USB port. Please refer to the manufacturer of your device for more information regarding iOS compatibility.
However, since we have not tested all of the available devices, we cannot guarantee the compatibility of any particular class-compliant audio device with the iOS device and TRAKTOR DJ except the interfaces from our product range that have been tested and approved (see 'Fully Supported NI Audio Interfaces" below).
Also note that iOS devices do not provide sufficient power over the USB connection. Audio interfaces which can only be powered over the USB bus will only work when using a self-powered USB hub in between the audio interface and the iOS device. If available, always use the power adapter of your device.Note: Learn more about the connection of NI devices with your iOS device here. Also make sure that you are using the latest firmware for your NI device. Find detailed information about updating the firmware in this article.

Class-Compliant NI Audio Interfaces
The following NI audio interfaces are class-compliant and are therefore able to stream audio through separate outputs in TRAKTOR DJ. Their use is restricted to iPad as these devices will not work on an iPhone. Note: All class-compliant devices require iOS 6.0 or higher.
- KOMPLETE AUDIO 6 *
- TRAKTOR AUDIO 6
- TRAKTOR AUDIO 10
- TRAKTOR KONTROL S5
- TRAKTOR KONTROL S8
- TRAKTOR KONTROL Z2
* Since the KOMPLETE AUDIO 6 does not provide an external power supply, the use of a self-powered USB hub is required.
Non-Compatible Legacy Audio Interfaces
The following NI legacy audio interfaces use a proprietary driver to communicate with the host computer and are not class-compliant. You cannot use these interfaces with TRAKTOR DJ on iOS devices.
- AUDIO 2 DJ
- AUDIO 4 DJ
- AUDIO 8 DJ
- AUDIO KONTROL 1
- GUITAR RIG MOBILE / SESSION
- RIG KONTROL
- TRAKTOR AUDIO 2 (MK1)
- TRAKTOR KONTROL S2 (MK1)
- TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 (MK1)
