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.
Before winning the DMC World Championship on Saturday, DJ Yuto stopped by Native Instruments’ studio in Tokyo for a cut session. He was joined by 2007 DMC World Champion DJ Rafik and former five-time DMC World Team Champions Kireek. They were equipped with four Technics turntables, three Native Instruments Z2 mixers, and two custom Native Instruments Maschine controllers. Watch above to see what happened.
