    UPDATE - JUNE 12TH 2018:

    After having released Traktor Pro 2.11.3 beginning of May, we can happily say that this version has excelled our own expectations regarding stability and positive user feedback.

    We want to continue on this path!

    This is why we decided to keep this section of the forum open, true to the motto: “after the release is before the release”.

    Improving Collaboratively
    Most of you have probably read NI’s new Director of Products for Traktor (Pedram Faghfouri) recent statement about unveiling new Traktor hardware and software this year and our plans to maintain and improve Traktor Pro for several more years.

    This is where this Public Beta section of the Traktor forum comes into play: in striving for continuously improving stability and removing usability hurdles we sometimes run into the situation that we have to spend much time to reliably reproduce the issues observed by you in the field.

    We intend to use the broad variety of setups and workflows available in this forum to support our in-house efforts to reliably reproduce certain issues enabling us to fix them. So you may see some threads posted in General Discussion or in the Bug Reports section by me or other members of the team asking specific questions related to our ongoing testing.

    Forum Policies
    The forum gives much freedom to its users. This is why we must agree on a set of rules to make sure, that all the information flowing in this forum remains accessible. These guidelines are described in the Forum Policies.

    Forum Communication
    We have a few forum moderators and SW team members monitoring the Public Beta forum, which means that the General Discussion section of the beta forum is also the right place to ask your questions.

    In general we ask you to respect the rules we have defined for this forum to keep the information flowing and accessible. These guidelines are described in the Forum Policies.

    Becoming a Beta Tester
    Please also be aware that we are looking at this forum a resource for new Expert Testers, so if you are interested in testing Traktor more intensively, this forum is the right place to show your skills and your style as a tester.

    Thank you for contributing!
    The Traktor Pro Team


    ORIGINAL POST:
    Welcome to a new round of Traktor Pro testing and feedback
    For this round of beta testing we decided to use an open forum, because we believe that hurdle-less communication is key for a productive beta test.

    The essence of Traktor Pro 2.11.3
    This version provides a much better integration of Pioneer players and mixers than ever before.
    You will find all details in the change-log in each builds release communication.

    Forum Policies
    The forum gives much freedom to its users. This is why we must agree on a set of rules to make sure, that all the information flowing in this forum remains accessible. These guidelines are described in the Forum Policies.

    How to Contribute as a Tester
    We encourage you to use the software in the most natural way possible with the usual precautions, regarding backing up your stuff in case of software malfunction.
    Traktor Pro 2.11.3 has been pre-tested by our Expert beta team for several weeks and has also been approved by Pioneer. We therefore believe that with the right amount of initial caution after some thorough testing at home, you can use this version live.

    Using the 2.11.3 beta side-by-side with the released version
    You can use the 2.11.3 side-by-side beta with the released version as any other Traktor update. Feel free to ask in the forum if you are unsure how to launch the release version after you have upgraded to 2.11.3.

    Forum Communication
    We have a few forum moderators and SW team members monitoring the Public Beta forum, which means that the General Discussion section of the beta forum is also the right place to ask your questions.

    Please also be aware that we are looking at this beta test as a resource for new Expert Testers, so if you are interested in testing Traktor more intensively, this forum is the right place to show your skills and your style as a tester.

    That's it!

    OK - if you have time, you can now download the latest build now from here. Then at some point, but definitely before your first bug report, please read the Forum Policies.

    Thank you for contributing!
