1. We're currently conducting systematic tests with the release version of macOS 11 (Big Sur) in order to offer full compatibility of our products as soon as possible. You can find our latest compatibility status - here

    Please note that although announced at the same time as macOS Big Sur, Apple Silicon processors are an independent release with separate compatibility concerns for NI products. Compatibility with macOS Big Sur will not yet ensure compatibility with Apple Silicon processors. At the moment, Native Instruments products are not supported on computers with Apple Silicon processors. Read more - here

    This is really two feature requests, related:

    As a Traktor user I want to add a user-defined column to the browser representing a named MP3 tag (field) that I know is present in my MP3 files and have Traktor display the contents of that tag/field if and when it finds that tag present in an MP3 file so that I can select tracks based on the content of these fields.

    (For instance, Beatport Pro has a "Mood" field that many Beatport users use to tag their tracks, and these "mood" tags are stored in the MP3 metadata in a field called "Mood". While it might be too-much to ask to actually be able to filter the browser contents the way Beatport Pro does, it would be at least a big help if Traktor could display the contents of the Mood field for any given file. If the field doesn't exist, simply leave the cell in the browser blank.)

    The more complete, and desirable user story:
    As a Traktor user I want Traktor to be aware of the MP3 tag fields supported by Beatport (and the Beatport Pro software) and enable a user to filter the contents of the browser grid in the same manner as Beatport Pro so that I can have the browser only display tracks based on the content of these fields and simplify my track search & selection while I am playing a live set.

    This has been requested for 15+ years regularly, and I myself have been hoping for ANY of the big 3 (Traktor, Serato or Rekordbox) to give us access to the complete metadata functionality that has been standard for 15+ years as well. But so far, nada....

    NI is aware, and promised to address this, but has always said it's only possible with a complete Browser/Traktor rewrite...
    Ideally - you, and everyone else who still cares about this, should +1 the feature request in NI's latest feature request method/board... which is here:

    Some recent ish past threads with input from NI...
