    I think 2-finger trackpad scrolling in the Traktor file browser does not behave in the same way as any other macOS app with a scrollable view. (I have no idea if this problem exists on Windows.)

    It seems as though there is a minimum speed threshold you first need to meet before the browser will start scrolling. No other mac app behaves like this. The difference is noticeable and it annoys me. :)

    Because of this threshold, I often speed up my finger movements, and then there is the likelihood that it starts scrolling jerky and too fast, instead of scrolling in a predictable way.

    I run almost a base macOS system (no hacks/accelerators/etc) and have thought the trackpad scrolling has been wonky for as long as I can remember.

    Can this be improved so it is a more consistent experience?

    Traktor DJ 2 on macOS does not suffer from this problem.

    More obvious when you put Traktor DJ 2 and Traktor Pro 3 side by side.

    I have a hunch that scrolling in Traktor Pro hasn't been updated since mouse wheel scrolling. It feels like it was made more for mouse wheels. :p

    Yep - just got a brand new Macbook Pro and upgraded to Traktor Pro 3, now really not happy about this issue,

    Makes the browser practically unusable especially with large folders (i.e. your favourite genres), and needs fixed ASAP.

    Same here. Just finished setting up my new MBP and purchased Traktor Pro 3 after using 2 for many years on an older MBP. The two finger scroll does not work properly when trying to scroll through the track list.

    Not only the trackpad. If I scroll slowly using the mouse wheel it doesn't move either. There's some threshold in there, which is really annoying.
    I just upgraded to a new Macbook Pro and Traktor 3, too. Please fix this!

    An update...

    I loaded my old MacBook Pro (13" mid 2012) with MacOS Catalina 10.15.5 and Traktor Pro 3.3.0.108. The trackpad scrolling works normally and as expected. My new MacBook Pro (13" 2019, Four Thunderbolt 3 ports) has the exact same OS and Traktor Pro versions loaded, and it does have the issue.

    I'm also going to open a support ticket, just in case nobody else has done so.
