NEW IN 2.6: FLUX MODE AND MACRO FX

  • Activate the new Flux Mode and it tracks the time while you juggle cue points, loop and re-edit the track live, then lets you drop back in at exactly the right moment. A powerful creative weapon and an innovative tool for maximum creativity and point-perfect timing.
  • When released, the track drops exactly where it would have been if it had run “uninterrupted”. A convenient visual indicator in the waveform keeps track for you.
  • Macro FX combine multiple TRAKTOR effects on a single control. Now it’s easier than ever to build up, breakdown and destroy tracks with a single, intuitive action – without being an FX guru.

If you have trouble using the new Macro FX or mapping the new Flux Mode, see this knowledge base article for in-depth instructions.



 
 

INNOVATIVE REMIX DECKS™

  • Remix Decks let you select from up to 64 loops and one-shot samples per deck. Any of the four decks in TRAKTOR PRO 2 can be switched to be a Remix Deck
  • Each Remix Deck offers four different Slots (columns), ideal for arranging sounds and loops by instrument groups e.g. different drum, bass, percussion loops. Play one sound per column - a total of four samples at any one time.
  • Use loops from the included sound content or import any loops and sounds of your own
  • Develop your own unique trademark sound and build a personal arsenal of sounds by live-capturing your favorite loops while DJing

 

REMIX SETS IN DEEP CONTROL

  • To add more flavor, you can choose which slots are fed through TRAKTOR’s FX units, or even play samples in reverse
  • The Punch mode allows for instant switching between different loops in one instrument group, in perfect phase - switch from one drum loop to the next exactly on the 2 and 4 snares
  • Additionally, the Remix Deck quantize can be set to different values for full control of the musical phrasing

 

FREE REMIX SETS

  • TRAKTOR PRO 2 and TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO 2 users can access a wealth of top quality loops and one-shots for use with the Remix Decks.
  • Renowned artists have provided inspiring material in a number of genres, including Remix Sets prepared by Pan-Pot, Stewart Walker, and Marc Houle, among others.

IMPROVED BPM DETECTION

  • New tempo detection for improved accuracy, developed from analysing thousands of tracks from various genres
  • New “downbeat” auto-detection improves auto-beat-gridding and phase recognition
  • Convenient analysis options when importing files to your collection - set the tempo range by BPM
  • Much improved BPM detection on tracks with variable tempo, (such as “live” drummer genres) - now detects average BPM
  • Rewritten Tempo-Tap – instant and simple realignment anytime your tracks drifts away from the grid over time
  • Manually adjusted grids, (and all BPM-locked tracks) keep their position and tempo from previous versions

 

PIONEER INTEGRATION

It’s never been easier to set up TRAKTOR in the club. The latest 2.6 software update provides plug and play usability with Pioneer's CDJ Series (2000 Nexus / 2000 / 900 / 400) and DJM-900 Nexus Mixer, thanks to advanced HID support. Use the DJ CD player to access tracks, cue points, loops and more in TRAKTOR, with all relevant information on the CD player's display – from track artwork to detailed waveform displays.

This integration gives CDJ users access to powerful features such as TRAKTOR's Remix Decks, sync, superior cueing and looping, intuitive browsing and world-class effects. TRAKTOR memorizes your settings, so every DJ booth becomes your DJ booth, no matter what equipment is installed.
