This thread provides information about Traktor Pro 3. It will be updated whenever new information becomes available. Please make sure that your installation is up to date. --------- 3.2.0 - 2019-07-01 TRAKTOR PRO 3.2.0 comprises a set of features in the domain of harmonic mixing, which when used together open up a whole new world of harmonically matching songs. ADDED Elastique 3.3.0 Time Stretching The Elastique time-stretching algorithms have been updated to the newest version 3.3.0. Your tracks will sound more present, and transients will maintain their definition when pitching up or down. ADDED New Key Widget replacing former Key Lock button This new widget prominently provides the core features for harmonic mixing all in one place: Key Lock on/off, colored resulting key display, and semitone up/down controls. The new visual appearance can be toggled on/off in the preferences. ADDED Semitone up/down key control in Key Widget When engaging Key Lock the Key Widget displays semitone up/down buttons, enabling you to pitch the track up down the track in musically-relevant steps. ADDED Display of resulting key in Key Widget When engaging Key Lock the button displays the original key of the playing track in the notation of your choice. This enables you to find the next matching track easily be following the rules of harmonic mixing. ADDED Display offset between resulting and original in Key Widget When engaging Key Lock the button below the resulting key displays the offset from the track's original key in steps of semitones. This enables you to avoid offsets that are too large, which may result in audio degradation. ADDED Optionally display resulting key in Deck Header The resulting key can also be displayed in the deck header, by selecting the option "Resulting Key" in the Deck Header section of the "Track Decks" Preferences tab. This value also displays the resulting key without engaging key lock, by showing the closest full semitone along with the current offset in cents. ADDED Highlight for tracks matching the MASTER deck's key When engaging Key Lock on the current Master Deck, all matching keys will be highlighted in the browser, enabling you to select the next matching song in your set. How exactly the keys are highlighted can be personalized in a preference setting. ADDED Option to personalise highlighting of key color in browser A new preference option in the "Browser" tab of the preferences allows you to customize the way, matching keys will be highlighted in the key column of the browser. ADDED Quantised semitone up/down controls on S4 MK3 The new quantised semitone control provided by the Key Widget has been applied to the Key Control on the S4MK3. This way shift + right encoder on the S4 now snaps to the closest full semitone. ADDED Display quantized resulting key on S4 MK3 The way the resulting key is displayed on the S4 MK3 has also been aligned with the Key Widget on the UI of TRAKTOR PRO. ADDED S4 MK3 headphone volume boost by +6dB This version of TRAKTOR asks you to update your S4MK3 to firmware 060, which features a boost of the S4's headphone volume by +6dB.
