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

    "VSTi deck"

    Description: Add a VSTi deck as an option that runs NI family plugins.

    Purpose: Play basslines using Massive X from a keyboard, sample it and assign it to remix deck. Sync Maschine to the master deck without sync offset issues. Less CPU intensive than running a second host application.

    "31-band Main EQ"

    Description: A 31 band graphic EQ in front of the Main Out Limiter.

    Purpose: Compensate for installed speaker systems with too much mid bass, barky patio speakers or thin ceiling speakers.

    "Hybrid mix routing"

    Description: Run two decks in cruise mode to a single stereo output and use the other two decks for external mixing.

    Purpose: Seamlessly switch between background music and important event music such as the first dance at a wedding or team/fighter anthems.

    "Additional MIDI Modifiers"

    Description: More modifiers in MIDI mapping to further Traktors flexibility.

    Purpose: With so many controls on modern day controllers, it can be easy to max out the modifiers. Creating a second input for the same controller doesn't always work smoothly because changing the modifier state or resetting may not always register in both mapping. The easiest solution would be to add modifiers.

    Yeah I would also love to see the addition of Global modifiers. where pressing a key on the keyboard activates the modifier across all controllers.

    You can already have this by creating one big tsi for all your controllers. Simply switch to a different midi channel for every controller to ensure you get exclusive buttons/knobs on every controller and set the input/output to all ports. That's what i do right now for a hercules dj rmx, a launchpad, an akai mpd 218 and an evolution uc-33 controller. By doing so, for example setting modifier 1 to 1 with a button on the hercules, that modifier state can be used on all other controllers, too.

    What i would love to see are another condition (condition 3), the possibility to use AND/OR for modifier condition combinations and the possibility to control the pitch/gain/sample play mode for every sample cell in the remix decks with my hardware instead of using my mouse.

    Beside this it would also be funky to be able to switch between the already given filter and other effects or even panning for each sample slot individually. Right now you can only tick/use a filter on/off for each slot, but other effects and balance affects the complete remix deck.

    We could get freaky creative with such small changes.
