Traktor 2.5 is HERE! (Video)

Our good friends over at Native Instruments dropped a jem on the DJ-world earlier this week while I was sick and away in Denver for other business. Sorry I didn't get to this as fast as I should have, but better late than never! Traktor 2.5 with the new remix decks is now available for free upgrade download for current Traktor 2.0 users. Traktor 2.5 can also be bought for only $90 for users who do not currently have Traktor. We'll have the full HD-Video in-depth Review of the new Traktor 2.5 and the Traktor F1 hardware as soon as its released but check out my initial thoughts on the new update along with the video and instructions on how to go get your copy of Traktor 2.5 early!

-Lower CPU usage

-Remix "slots" can play full tracks, samples, loops, one-shots, and more!
