    hey guys,

    I am tired of reading about technical problems and bugs from everyone.

    I am ready to upgrade from T3 to TSPro... But I want to read some good reviews from veteran users of Traktor.

    I have been using Traktor's software since version 1. I have no problems/bugs/glitches with 3. Now I want to setup a new laptop with Traktor Scratch. But before I make that big of an investment, I want assurance from the elite veteran digital DJ's out there that a scratch setup works without a hiccup for them....

    Download the trial version and play around with it.

    It's free and is a completely separate install.

    It depends on how you will use TP(S). Just A to B mixing, no worries. Effects? Generally no worries.

    1.0.3 will fix a lot of things. I would upgrade when it comes out.

    The good news is PRO hasnt crashed on me once.
    The effects are sick.
    Sync (once used to) is unreal.
    GUI rocks and glows like the Crown Jewels.
    It isnt Serato :eek:

    Yes, it's VERY stable and I use it quite often and in longer sessions. I think 7 hours is the record for me so far.

    Coming from TS1 and T3.3, I've been very satisfied with Pro once I got around to tweaking my Macs. It was downright unusable when I first installed it but after I stopped bitching and did some breathing exercises I did a full reinstall and now the current version of TSPro is running very well on my system. Can't wait for 1.0.3 to come out, I hear it's gonna be a monster.

    Thank you all for your positive feedback. It is good to see you veterans are not having major issues. It makes me more confident in upgrading to Traktor Pro.

    I am going to build the following setup for Traktor Scratch:

    Dell Studio XPS 16 w/ vista 64
    WD 1TB External HDD
    Korg Zero 8
    2x Pioneer CDJ 800's
    Audio 8

    I cannot wait to get this setup going.

    This laptop is only going to have Traktor Pro installed, and I am only using it for mixing at parties/gigs and practice. I will average about 3 hours a day on it.

    Hi jazzykat

    I haven't either got any issues with Traktor Scratch Pro, just make sure you optimize your laptop.

    I saw that you have an WD MyBook 500GB, I bought an WD MyBook Studio Edition II (1 TB), the plan was to use it with Traktor Scratch Pro, but the WD disks has a sleep mode function that you can't turn off and that's not good.

    If you've loaded two songs in Traktor Scratch Pro and the disk goes to sleep before you load another song it's going to take some seconds before ths disk is alive again and that makes your system slow.

    I'm not sure if your disk has this sleep mode function, but if it has and you can't turn it off, then you should consider buying another disk...

    I'm now using a Lacie disk with no sleep function.

    Took TSPro out for the first time last Saturday and everything went smooth. Once I familiarized myself with the program's "new features" I felt confident enough to take it out (I'm weaning myself off T3). No problems.

    @oakstream : read this that i took from a forum.

    "i finally called tech support and the guy told me you have to install a wd app. called "button manager" which apparently keeps the drive awake. seems to work so far, but really lame fix"

    Worth a look.

    Traktor Pro doesn't work with Sound Blaster X-Fi

    I have bought an expensive Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Surround 5.1 (External USB) just to realize that it doesn't work with TRAKTOR PRO.

    It appears that this bug happens with the whole Sound Blaster X-Fi series.

    I've already tried the latest drivers, and all kinds of possible configurations.

    ASIO4All works, but TRAKTOR becomes instable when using it, crashing or distorting the sound very often. I can't use it to play live.

    I've read on other foruns that this bug does not occur with Traktor 3 and prior versions. Why is that?

    When is Native Instruments going to solve this bug?

    You don't need the Audio 8 with the Zero 8 mate, the CDJs will just plug straight in, and Traktor recieves the timecode fine. I had a load of issues with the Z8 under vista so pm me if you have any probs.

    Did a 6 hours gig yesterday for around 200 ppl.
    Traktor pro in external mixer mode controled in midi with Faderfox.
    I have beatgrided my tracks on the fly during the party.
    I've done some search on my library without any problem.
    Music was on external HH or internal and have imported and analyzed music during the party.
    No sound drops at all.
    Everything went smooth :)

    I am really impressed and happy with it.
