Traktor DJ Studio enables music DJs to mix to their hearts’ content using features like the Offset Meter, Spectral Waveform and Graphics Filter Preview. The new version sports a redesigned interface that is inspired by classic DJ hardware, according to its developers.
Sound quality has been boosted thanks to the integration of filters and interpolation culled from Native Instruments’ Reaktor software. Fraunhofer MP3 decoding algorithms have also been licensed. What’s more, Native Instruments has included professional quality de-emphasis correction to help emulate the characteristics of analog vinyl scratching.
Traktor DJ Studio works with MIDI controllers, keyboards, or just a keyboard, mouse, joystick or other input device. You can map input to over 400 individual functions and actions, and outsource the mix to a DJ mixer and soundcard or onboard sound, if you prefer.
Traktor DJ Studio also sports a database with a “Quick Search” feature that scans tracks at more than 2,000 per second. MP3 tags are imported automatically and Tree View also is offered as a view option. Tracks can be cued on headphones before loading, as well.
The new version sports enhanced cueing and looping features, automated detected tempo estimations, new recording capabilities and much, much more.
Traktor DJ Studio 2.0 is now available for US$199. Registered users can download the update for free.
