After a few years of apparent stagnation, Native Instruments seem to be taking a renewed interest in their DJ software, Traktor Pro. The new version, 3.6.0, brings with it some new features, as well as a subscription offering, Traktor Pro Plus. On the new episode of Beatsource Tech, we check those out, and look at the roadmap the company has provided for the future direction of the app.
In this episode of Tips and Tricks, Mojaxx takes a first look at the latest version of Traktor Pro from Native Instruments, which includes support for Beatsource LINK and Beatport LINK streaming, as well as HID control with Pioneer DJ’s latest CDJ-3000 media players.

Traktor Pro 3.1 introduces a number of new features in addition to the standard stability improvements and bug fixes. Screen layout options now include both a parallel waveform view and a single-deck view. DJs who use the Kontrol S8 and D2 now have the option of custom-mapping their controllers.
Native Instruments has also upgraded the firmware for the Kontrol S4, allowing the controller to be used as a standalone mixer with no laptop needed.
Traktor Pro 3.1 is a free upgrade for Traktor Pro 3 owners.
After years of not releasing any DJ equipment, Native Instruments returned to the game in October and unveiled its Traktor Pro 3 software. It also announced two updated controllers: the Traktor Kontrol S2 and S4.
