When in need of a professional DJ software, one recommendation is Traktor, a powerful solution for both novice and advanced users. Traktor’s engine enables DJs to mix and combine tracks while allowing for live performances in a comfortable, stress-free manner.
With an easy installation process, Traktor deploys itself silently on your computer and in a decent amount of time. When launching the application, a Setup Wizard prompts users to make the necessary accommodations. This first step lets you configure basic audio and MIDI settings and resets all the other preferences to their default values.
Traktor’s interface has a professional, elegant look, with all the features accessible from the main window. Professional DJs should not find it hard to learn how to use it, although beginners could spend quite an amount of time untangling its features and behavior. The rich documentation section provides extended help manuals to ease the process of understanding the software usage.
Traktor boasts a friendly environment, with stylish multi-color pads and TruWave colored waveforms to ensure a stimulating visual experience. It comes with a maximum of 4 playback decks, up to 32 effects to give your mixes a personal touch, a four channel mixer and sample decks for live remixing.
Traktor also includes a wide set of original loops and sounds: drum, bass, percussion, house, techno or trance to name a few. It also allows users to grab loops from the currently playing track and save it in a special library, while the Loop Recorder enables to record live loops from single or multiple channels.
Traktor makes the DJ experience worthwhile, by encasing the powerful engine that any professional turntablist needs to create original content. The intuitive interface, together with the state-of-the art mixing technology provides all the means that DJs needs to spin.
