The new Traktor Pro 2.8.0 update is now released and with it comes support for the new Traktor Kontrol D2, support for the new Rane MP2015 Mixer, 64-Bit Architecture, and a host of other improvements. The Pioneer XDJ-1000 and CDJ-900NXS players also receive full HID support. The Traktor Kontrol D2 is the new controller which is almost like a full deck version of the Traktor Kontrol S8 without the internal mixer. The Traktor Pro 2.8.0 update adds support for this new NI controller along with full support for the Pioneer XDJ-1000 and CDJ-900NXS mutli-media players. This means users can now connect a USB cable to these particular Pioneer decks for full Traktor Software control. The new Rane MP2015 Rotary Mixer is now also Traktor Scratch Certified meaning users can connect CD decks and turntables using timecode for full Digital Vinyl Playback without the use of an NI soundcard.
The Traktor Software Engine also gets a lot of improvements that DJ's have been asking for. Traktor 2.8.0 can finally run in real 64-bit architecture mode along with multi-processor enhancements to make everything run smoother, faster, and more efficient.
