    Hi all,

    Welcome to the fifth issue of "Traktor on the Record"! This Q&A session gives you the opportunity to get direct answers from product designer Friedemann and product manager Tobias on all things Traktor.

    Please read this post first for info on how this works:
    http://www.native-instruments.com/forum/showthread.php?t=75597

    The most important stuff briefly:

    - this thread works like a mailbag, all posts go in an internal queue and won't be visible at first
    - only NI product owners can post questions in this session
    - please keep it focussed and suggest only one topic per session

    This thread will be closed for submissions sometime on Wednesday, and answers will be posted on Friday.

    We are looking forward to your topics!

    Regards, Thomas

    This is not a known issue on our end, so I cannot really help here. Please run this by our tech support with more infos about your setup!

    I can see where this makes sense, so it's noted as a feature request. I can not promise you that we can give it a high priority though since it has not really been requested by others so far.

    "Traktor Scratch certified" is not really the right term here, because this only applies to DJ mixers with digital audio interface. But starting with the upcoming update, it will be possible to use Audio 4 DJ for timecode input if you have Traktor Scratch Pro.

    I am not sure what issues you are refering to here. If you mean the "soft takeover" functionality, this has been fixed for the upcoming update.

    I hope you will be happy to hear that in the upcoming update, the Preview Player volume is controllable via the headphone volume knob :)

    Our developer team is organized in a flexible way. This means that some developers only work on Traktor or other specific products all the time, and others work on frameworks and other shared technologies, or get assigned in a flexible way depending on the current priorities. Shared technologies included for example the audio engine, GUI libraries or DSP algorithms, so for example our new performance effect algorithms are both in Traktor Pro and in the upcoming Maschine.

    With Traktor Pro we definitely wanted to stress the character of Traktor as a live performance tool. Further improvements that we have lined up will also focus on this, so we are not planning to make it double as a studio/production tool. This is something that is more covered by the upcoming "Maschine", which you can also seamlessly sync to Traktor Pro via MIDI.

    We are not working on a new tutorial DVD, we think it makes more sense to have free tutorial videos on our website. In this way there has been a tutorial series available for Traktor Pro right from the start.

    You can solve this by deleting a row from the default keyboard
    mapping.

    - Open Preferences > Keyboard Mapping
    - Sort the table by the "Control" column
    - Scroll down until you find two rows called "Search Clear"
    - Remove both rows by selecting them and pressing "Delete"

    Now the view is not switched when you use Ctrl-F.

    To achieve what you want there is no need to switch to Collection, because
    completing the Search with the ENTER key extends the search to the Collection
    as follows:

    - Preparation List is selected
    - press Ctrl-F
    - enter your search string
    - press the RETURN key to extend the search to the Collection
    - select the track with the arrow keys
    - press SHIFT-F1 to add the track to the Preparation list
    - press F1 to switch back to the Preparation list

    To sort playlists by two columns, just sort it by the second column first, then consolidate the order, then sort it by the first column.

    That said, we will definitely expand the playlist functionality through further updates this year.
