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. In order to download the update, simply open the NI Service Center on your computer or log into the NI website with your username and download the update from there.

Traktor 2.5.1 Update Released

Native Instruments has just released the newest update for all Traktor Pro users called the Traktor PRO 2.5.1. This new update is BIG news for all Pioneer CDJ-900 and CDJ-2000 owners since this iteration will include native support and HID integration to work very nicely with Traktor Pro. Other users will find lots of other small improvements that will make everything flow and run smoother. One of my favorites is that the F1 one-shot samples will now automatically play in Non-Quantized mode.

The new Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S8 DJ controller has now officially been announced and all the details have been released by the NI team. The S8 was already teased and leaked about a month ago, but with little details. We now know that the Kontrol S8 will operate as a completely Stand-Alone 4-channel mixer, it has touch sensitive knobs, high quality user-replaceable faders, and dual high resolution screens for all the Traktor information one could need.
