numlock's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Better than the previous version"

Native Instruments Traktor Pro
I use a coupon of updating since version 3 (69 instead of 99), even if the beginners j'tais not super motivated to change the version.
It is seeing the new features of the Pro version (including effects) I jump on it.

GETTING STARTED

The update has Droulez no problem.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

This version of Traktor works fine on my laptop Dell Inspiron 9400 from 2006, slightly less well on the Lenovo Ideapad S12 netbook (lack of power).
At boot loading of the collection (20,000 titles) is a bit long (about 1 minute), for cons I sometimes encounter crashes when I pushed to its limits ...

OVERALL OPINION

I use this version from prs 2 years and I am satisfied. I expect to have some money to offer me the console that goes with it (the S2 Traktor).

Native Instruments Traktor Pro
What technical specifications motivated your choice?

J'tais on serato from 5-6 years and I wanted to pass on opportunities for traktor afternoon that the software could bring along with four decks, which may be virtual pilots.

For what purpose?

Mix

What is your config (motherboard / CPU / Ram / Hard ,...)?

Macbook pro, snow leopard

GETTING STARTED

Installation is no problem it?

Uh, you must have an Internet connection for this, and I find the fact of going through the service center is fucking evil trs, unlike other software or you Tlcharger the update or the program, install it and it ends, the switch must have all taken the same service center for updates, just galre ...

Gnrale configuration is easy?

Yes, just read the manual if you know nothing about, nothing insurmountable ...

Have you experienced any incompatibility?

No, but 3 crashes, hard to take ...

The manual is clear and sufficient? ...

Yes, trs clear config for the sound card as a mapping couraging full manual trs well done can avoid all the questions that beginners may arise.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

The software works he correctly on this configuration?

Yes no problem

This software + hardware configuration is stable?

For the moment no, I opened a ticket 3 NI have rponses crashes on for over a month and still no rponses, I do not explain the crashes ...

OVERALL OPINION

How long have you use it?

2 months, used the full one month

Have you tried many other models before acqurir?

Serato, cross

What is the particular feature you like least?

Besides the crashes I do not blame the software

What is the particular feature you like most?

Opportunities noon, 4 decks, filters.

How do you report qualitprix?

Trs well for the opportunities I have had in the promo.

Exprience with, you will do again this choice?

I have serato and I am not to return prs, traktor never couraging offers opportunities for other software and offers a multitude of possibilities for Fast Fashion remix .. . The only thing I drang stability is unexplained but by my problem ... but I would do without this choice hsiter proof I spend on a fully config midi ...

Native Instruments Trs good job ...

youkounkoun's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" very very good"

Native Instruments Traktor Pro
Easy to use, complete, I use my home as a completely private and for pleasure.
I turn on XP pack3, 3.5 RAM. No problems of incompatibility. Everything runs perfectly.

GETTING STARTED

no prob installation.
Manuel ok ... but not enough for détails.Merci Youtube for specific cases and cheats (I think eg. Beatgrid in)

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I use it with a card Presonus Firepod, 4 outputs so I route to A & H Xone S2 which is connected to my Central Station. (+ TC Electronic Finalizer Express or Behringer DCX2496). Sounds of hell.
I recently purchased the Denon MC6000 controller. That happiness. They are meant for each other.
Everything is stable, no problem.

OVERALL OPINION

I therefore used for 1 year.
I have not tried other models. I took the top line.
I also Ableton Live6. But it's not for the same job is something else.
Q / P very good. And I would do this choice undoubtedly.

robofox's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" good effective product"

Native Instruments Traktor Pro
I bought a virtual mixing console Hercules MK4 and I wanted to replace the software supplied with (Virtual DJ) in a version that was too limited.
I chose traktor pro to his reputation, and because there was a promo to 99 € in NI.
I use it in small parties with friends, coupled with the MK4, just for fun.

GETTING STARTED

Install without any problem.
The configuration is fairly easy (manual in pdf format)

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

imac core 2 duo 3Ghz 22p
or old intel centrino laptop with Win XP (this one on this train but it just does it anyway)
the software is stable

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 6 months.
I appreciate its relative simplicity and the possibilities to map any MIDI controller with the "controlling manager" included. Good sound, effects and settings respond well, the automatic fitting the tempo is ok. Ditto for research in the collection that is fast.

Too bad it only supports its own internal effects (no plugin).
Another small flaw and can manage playslist but it lacks a mode 'random' for the shuffle.

I would say to sum up: effective product.

Vern1ta's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" From hardware to software"

Native Instruments Traktor Pro
V1 chosen for its strength system, expanded his musical abilities (accessed in a modest setup sound card to a pro equipment, find the essential hardware functions, digital music library, effects ...)

Used with 2 CDJ 400 DJM 400 and USB CAR for personal use

GETTING STARTED

Standard installation, no inconsistency found between the software and the PC

Configuration "general" simple enough, but to address it thoroughly suited to his set it may take a while ... nothing new what ...

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

HP Pavilion DV9 1.66GHz dual-core 2046 MB DDR II, Windows Vista


Under exclusive use, it runs very well, but I regret a configuration a little more muscular and in seven rather than vista. Soon!

OVERALL OPINION

1 year from now, a really good app. It does not crash or very little ... sound quality is the appointment despite a standard configuration, latency (control pc / CDJ) impeccable ... Like most people who have tried it I think I passed!

I loved mixing in "hardware" and the idea was retissant mix via a PC. but it makes a nice change for a relatively affordable!

A nice option in a nutshell.

I will ever be the choice of course and also will do it again for version 2 which seems to make really good stuff ... when my config. evolve; Kontrol X1: D

Native Instruments Traktor Pro

GETTING STARTED

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I have a dual core 2.00 ghz with a clocking 2 gb of ram and its really runs without crashing or nickel crackling in sound

OVERALL OPINION

I have been using it but can javais with earlier versions. I try VDJ mixxx djDecks etc. .. but is that app is made better now.
a price is frankly no regrets!
is that like most? all
the least? nothing!

Just1's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" LE DJ software Pro"

Native Instruments Traktor Pro
I tried a bunch of software before falling on Traktor (in other words I did not know anything at all ...), and even software for Linux! In bulk, I have tried: Virtual DJ / Numark Cue, MixVibes Cross, Deckadance, Traktor (not Pro), Serato Itch, Pioneer DJS. Some are designed for aspiring DJs, like Virtual DJ, which I knew to have used a bit.
This time, I was looking for something Pro, a MIDI compatibility (this is not the case with Pioneer for example), but mostly exemplary ergonomics of the interface and features thoughts on Live.
That is exactly what Traktor Pro offers the user!

I am currently using Traktor 1.2.6, but also fairly regularly demo Traktor Pro 2. I think I will soon move to Scratch Pro 2 for mixing with Timecode CDs;)
For now I have a MIDI controller all-in-One (DJ I-Tech Reload Mix) and I managed to get a very satisfactory mapping. To start in the world of DJing semi-pro computer, these types of products are very suitable. Especially as MIDI can extend the possibilities according to the imagination! I have an external sound card Numark DJ iO which works very well with the software, but I am considering a move to 6 HD Audio Native.

Until then, my Traktor works primarily on Windows Vista, and I've never had a surprise. I also tested under Seven: Nothing to report. For my hardware configuration, see below.
Regarding Traktor 2, it looks more resource-intensive systems, so it must be tested on his machine before the Live ...

GETTING STARTED

Installation without any worry, as under Vista Seven. The "Configuration Wizard" asks the hardware at startup, to allow the user to avoid everything is stuck with his hand.

The manual is VERY full (almost too), but the interface is intuitive enough so that we did not refer to it when using "current". However, when one begins to delve into the complicated functions, especially those related to MIDI, users of forums invite us often (rightly) to consult the manual!

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

My PC config:
* Notebook 13.3 "
* Intel Core2 Duo T7250 @ 2GHz
* 3 GB DDR2 RAM
* Nvidia GeForce 8400M GS
* 2 USB ports

DJ equipment involved:
* Sound Card USB Numark DJ iO
* USB MIDI Controller

No conflict or instability noted.
(Regarding USB devices, I just bought two LPD8 Akai, and I'll be forced to buy a powered USB hub ON AREA (I stress this point). I could test drive + USB sound card on the same hub: The hard drive does not work! But it is a common problem for "computer DJ.")

OVERALL OPINION

I am a user for two years now, and I must say that I will not leave Traktor anytime soon:) (especially since version 2 really brings a big plus). As I said before, I tried many other software (trial versions) before I lay down, and my choice fell naturally on Traktor. So obviously it's expensive, but I think the price is jusifié.

Actually what is significant in Traktor, it is not certain features. Of course we can talk about the effects, which are really great, synchronization works perfectly (although I'm using hardly any) of "gridding" for detection of tempo, sampler version 2, the 4 decks, and a whole bunch of other things. But what attracts me in Traktor, it's really designed for pro DJ, who happens to live. Finally, and perhaps for many trivial but important to me, you can disable all the automatic and visual aids, to be closer to the mix on CD (for example, "Waveforms" decks are not included, which allows not to rely on the image to whether the two sounds are keyed).

So the question "With experience, you do again this choice?" I say a big YES, of course.

Pictocube's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Perfect"

Native Instruments Traktor Pro
What motivated my choice is that I used the first version that I appreciated for its ergonomics and stability.
I use a Vestax Typhoon solo or Ecler SMAC Pro 20 during configuration heavier on a MacBook Pro.
I mix for fun and sometimes for friends, former DJ, I wanted to get back but without re-invest in two Technics and a mixer of egg.
There's everything you need and it works, the trick is to get the right version ... And what was missing is now in version 2.

GETTING STARTED

Instalation simple as long as we are connected to the Internet, otherwise it's possible but more difficult.
The general setup is fairly simple, the control panel is very comprehensive. I had a little trouble understanding the principle of Change in the section reserved for the setting of midi controllers, but nothing insurmountable. No incompatibilities encountered so far except that I can not configure my LED controller. The manual is clear and sufficient.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

Unibody MacBook Pro is a second generation.
The software is perfectly working on it, even without a dedicated sound card.
No crash.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 2 years at least.
Previously I had been experimenting with Virtual DJ, and more recently MixVibes Dekadance. All bidders or less able or less pleasing ergonomics.
What I like most is the Grid system.
What I like least two regards: Unable sampler with the sampler! We can distribute sample but not create them in real time.
The value for money and good, especially if you work with NI products and that often puts its config updated.
