Native Instruments has given us a solid release date for the new Traktor 2.5 software update and the new Traktor Kontrol F1 remix deck controller which will arrive on store shelves everywhere on May 30th, 2012. The Traktor 2.5 update will be given free to current Traktor Pro 2 and Traktor Duo 2 users which will be available at the Native Instruments website and there is a CRAZY price-drop for those who don't have it yet. Traktor 2.5 along with the Traktor Kontrol F1 will have features to control the new Remix Decks features that Traktor will now introduce. To top it all off, there will now only be one Traktor software for DJ's and that will be the Traktor Pro 2.5. No more DUO! Also, users can now only purchase the Audio 6 and Audio 8 hardware along with Traktor Pro 2.5 as Traktor Scratch Pro.
The new Pricing structure is going to bring smiles to lots of people's faces.
