    Native Instruments Traktor Pro 2 Review - The Tractor is Back

    Having reviewed the Traktor Kontrol S4 at the end of 2010, I got an email from Native Instruments in early April offering me a free upgrade for Traktor Pro 2. The differences between both S4 and PRO 2 versions are not so big as you'll see in this review, however there is an important gap between the previous Traktor version and the upcoming Traktor 2.

Native Instruments Traktor Pro 2
Native Instruments Traktor pro 2 is a bundle that I knew that I needed to get because I have several of Native Instruments products and software’s. All of the products that they produce are very easy to use and have a great quality about them. The Traktor Pro 2 is a complete system that will take care of all of your DJ needs. The Traktor Pro 2 will get you mixing great songs and putting together great mixes for clubs your friends and family right away, basically as soon as you get it out of the box.


GETTING STARTED

I did need to manual though just because this system was a lot different then some of the other bundles that I have gotten from Native instruments. It required a little reading on my part but there where no issues after I figured a few things out. I had no compatibility problems when installing it on my dual core pc running windows vista with service pack 2.


SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

Some of the cool things about this is that you can synce it right up to your ipod! So you can get right the some of you r favorite and popular songs right away. I am also pretty sure it can sync right up with iTunes to purchase songs or download free promo songs. I havent used the Itunes features yet. The built in mixer has multiple eq filter types and it will give you total control over your whole project and mixing.


OVERALL OPINION

Overall, great software, before I purchased it I was thinking “Is this really going to work?, Being that I love hardware so much? “ But after using it, I had no issues with this software hardware integration. I highly recommen this to anyone who wants to be a DJ! I am really happy with my purchase and would do It again knowing what I know now I will make sure other people purchase this too!

gontie's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Software that will eat all other"

Native Instruments Traktor Pro 2
For different machines, it is a core duo 2007 sour seven 32 bit machines more recent (core I7).

I used with one basic controller (hercules rmx) but most often connected to my external mixer. VMC 002

GETTING STARTED

The installation is very simple.

However, to fully know all of subitilités traktor, it takes time.

However, this is precisely the point of this software loaded options and customizable.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

Most often used with audio DJ2, I also tested with my sound card hercules rmx and MAYA 44 SE. IN any asio sound card works perfectly.

Performance is good even on older machines and do not need to talk about in a generation Core i3/i5/i7 mobile.

This software is heavy, but it still runs well on older machines. It is advisable to scan all these mp3 on very old machines before mixing, ca allow to prevent the CPU is exceeded in case of intense activity ;)

OVERALL OPINION

So I since version 2.1 and I bought 2.5 and now I'm still in 2.6

I especially mixes classic way, I do not like playing around with effects, sampler etc..

Despite a mix classic style, this software is almost perfect.

This is the only software that integrates several types of EQ connnus brands like Pioneer, Ecler, Allen and Health ...

I especially chosen for its very wide going great with my vestax, the two people together really well.

This is a software that can be used in several scenarios (internal = external controller = noon and mixer)

For 75 euros it is almost free.

I tested Mixvibes, Cross, Mixxx, Virtual DJ 7, and just for the Traktor worth the detour.

Although I adore this app, always prefer the mix on a mixer for analog sound.

For me a controller midi + + external soundcard mixer is the best config possible. Provided that the three elements are good ;)

Native Instruments Traktor Pro 2
I use it with the denon 6000 dnmc sync with my macbook's his turn!

Davmix01/24/2012

Davmix's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Reliable and intuitive"

Native Instruments Traktor Pro 2
- I bought the whole Traktor Pro 2 / Kontrol S2 in November 2011.
I chose Traktor for its reputation, reliability and the many posts of explanation that can be found on the net.

- I use Traktor Pro Kontrol 2 with a S2 with a home cinema amp and a Yamaha speaker system 2.1 (Wharfedale / Audience)

- I use this setup mainly for the "home djing" and a few evenings with friends.

GETTING STARTED

- Installation and configuration is intuitive and easy. Many tutorials exist everywhere in-depth to set their system.
Es a damper on updates that are tedious and can cause problems such as retrieving the settings. (Analysis of securities, cue ...)

- The paper manual is enough to start basic. Reading the 300 page PDF are essential to master perfectly Traktor.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

- The unit is powered by an Acer 2009 (AMD M300 dual core / 4 GB / 640 GB / Win 7 64). Despite the relative "age" of Traktor pc runs like a clock after all optimized.

- Analysis of a library of several thousand titles takes a long time anyway.

- I've never had a crash with this configuration.

OVERALL OPINION

3 months at a rate of 3-4 hours per week.

Before I had a U-control pro mix in MixVibes.

+ The effects are very successful and efficient.

- The ability to arrange the items in the window according to its use. There should be a system of elements "floating"

The value for money is good for first purchase. The updates should be cheaper cons. Thirty euros would be perfect.
I will remain faithful to traktor currently.

Native Instruments Traktor Pro 2
next mix it tears, it tears and creating side effects listed it tears too ... Finally, look no further traktor c is that it is vs!

I turn my pc level with an i5 4GB RAM on Windows 7 and turns no one nickel latency ..

I use the kontrols2 home with native instruments (c is for her than I would have not paid, it comes with the s2) c is simply royal! ^ ^ '

GETTING STARTED

its installation is very simple itself .... 15 minutes max

config with the s2 is made directly ... and nothing to retouch;)

no worries for the moment, everything works with the same two pro traktor hercules mp3 e2 n which is not expected to walk on traktor worked great!

the manual is very comprehensive, there are even courses within al speed mixing can help her begin a full and c is rather well explained with pictures and everything ...

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

motherboard but I know suporte chipset intel core i5 4GB RAM and 1TB of memory, when your sound card inside of it are al s2 then c is the sound of Native Instruments 8 if I remember correctly.

my pc is powerful

The program is very stable as the PC ... while traveling!

OVERALL OPINION

the 6 months that I'm using traktor virtual dj j've tried that n is not in the same scale dutout ... Finally, to my taste, but vs vs quickly realize that I am not the only thought his! ^ ^ '

qualitée compared prices with a s2 or s4 c is the top one purchased on the other hand ... c is super expensive but I think the program is Excellent!

I ressigne ofSuite yes ^ ^ '

SamXtrem's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Really Top"

Native Instruments Traktor Pro 2
Ergonomics Sympa tro not large nor too small (cool colors), Traktor Scratch software available (al time) and for me who has two platinum vynnil + Djm 600 c is good.
Traktor is really nice (indeed, playlist management, samples etc ...)
I jl Surtour uses at home in home studio in May it n is not very resource-intensive (Intel i5 4GB of ram more than enough).

8.5/10

GETTING STARTED

Installation very very easy (j mixvibes had before), you install the software industry and c is a party.
So far not had to recalibrate the jogger
Pdf manual super super detailed (only minus the operation of any effects because some are hard to manage)
but hey they can not do everything, you still things to discover!

A cool stuff on the record your mix directly not need another sound card and the same for your samples (they are automatically registered!)

9 / 10

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

RAS

9 / 10

OVERALL OPINION

3 months of use, completely satisfied (only minus the Crossface, which is a bit steep even if he is correct)
In my opinion the best compromise quality / price! Jai essyé the Pioneer and Denon and for me the denon is better for beatjugglin, the pioneer for mobile DJs (the strongest of the three quality requires Pioneer)
but the traktor S4 (with the crossfader innobender exceeds 2 without problem but must add 140 euros and goodbye warranty!
In short I am completely satisfied with this choice and do it again without hesitation!

8 / 10 (because of the crossfader)
