Adyssey Beats's review"A great piece of DJing software"

Native Instruments Traktor DJ Studio 2
What technical features/characteristics motivated your choice?
- Traktor Pro 2 uses new TruWave hi-resolution technology to illuminate your waveforms and color them in a way that differentiates between kicks, snares, hats, etc, giving you an extra edge in anticipating your mix. It also has better zoom features to set tighter cues, and new loop recording and sample decks to allow for additional creativity.

With what instruments or systems (console, preamp,DTD...) do you use it and what connection types are there ?
- I run this on my MacBook Pro and usually operate is via a midi controller, whether that be a set of decks (Numark Mixtrack, NS7, or Denon DN-MC6000) or a midi controller (Novation Launchpad)

For what use?
- I primarily use it for DJing, but also like to run some of my own music through it as a part of my mastering stage to add some post production effects.

What is your Setup (Mother Board/CPU/RAM/Disc,...)?
- I run Traktor on a MacBook Pro with a 2.7Ghz Intel Core i7 processor with 4GB of RAM.

GETTING STARTED

Were there any compatibility issues?
- No, I have not incurred any compatibility issues with this software.

Is the general configuration/setup simple?
- The general configuration is fairly simple, though there are a number of options and parameters that are available to play around with. There is certainly a learn curve, however that said, give it a couple hours to a couple days depending on your DJing capabilities and you will be completely aware of what Traktor has to offer.

Is the manual clear and sufficient?
- The manual, though extensive, is certainly clear and sufficient. It is well indexed and covers everything I had issues with.

Are the typical functions easily accessible?
- Yes. If you wanted to start mixing right out of the box with no skill you could definitely get going very quickly in Traktor Pro 2. The playback and cue buttons are all readily accessible and the library interface is easy to use, making finding tracks a breeze.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

Does the software work correctly in this configuration?
- Yes.

Is this configuration (software and gear) stable?
- I have never had audio or CPU issues where Traktor has been the source.

What performance are you getting?
- A very good one. Traktor's effects sound great, it works well with every controller I have used, and its cueing and looping functions work exceptionally well. It's my favorite DJing software and the one I use the most.

For how long have you been using it?
- I have had Traktor Pro 2 for a year and three months, and it has been absolutely fantastic so far.

OVERALL OPINION

What thing do you like most/least about it?
- The thing I like most has to be the TruWave hi-res wave coloration that assigns different timbre sounds to different colors. I can't say there's anything I really dislike.

What is your opinion about the value for the price?
- It is pricey as it is a Native Instruments product, but it is absolutely worth the money. Plus, the 2.5 Pro update was just released for free so they take some pity on us consumers.

Precision and quality of the sound?
- The sound quality is high. As aforementioned the effects sound especially good.

Did you try many other models before getting this one?
- I have used Virtual DJ and Serato Scratch and much prefer Traktor to both of them.

Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice?
Absolutely. Knowing what I know now I would never have used Serato Scratch or V-DJ.

Native Instruments Traktor DJ Studio 2
- Its versatility, it intgre feature packed configuration and settings
- Entertainment mix on the net, mix accessories
- ASUS S5N Laptop, Intel Centrino 1.7GHz, 512MB RAM, 60GB disk
- Currently used with the Hercules DJ console, and not without difficulty, you really feel any custom settings for a configuration conf stable, certainly not with a latency wonderful, but it's still a. Waiting for twelve o'clock console worthy of the name.

it says it lacks two things:
* Midi out
* Effects

GETTING STARTED

- Installation without any problem
- No incompatibility DTECT
- Trs configuration as sharp, so do not expect the easy but when you want something pro ...
- It is essential to read if you want to use the software optimizes Manir

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

- ASUS S5N Laptop, Intel Centrino 1.7GHz, 512MB RAM, 60GB drive, sound card intgre the hdjc
- Then the not simple, you really read the doc background paramtrer the hdjc in 44khz, increase latency asio, but hey, my centrino 1.7GHz configuration does not help, it said I got conf to the need for operating without a crash
- Uh? :-) We're going to say performance
- Once you have taken care to read the manual and make-configurations that are good, yes.

OVERALL OPINION

- Used for 2 years
- It offers many features and configuration options, it says it lacks:
* Out at MIDI, to see a meter or on a console bpm external midi
* Effects
- Yes, bpm ALCATech, vdj, things like a
- Unlike what many people say, I find the quality price ratio trs good, and it would be even if the two missing functions cited above existed.
- Of course! :-)

Native Instruments Traktor DJ Studio 2
Its simple and the fact that it all functions (neither too much nor too little) that it is reasonable to expect a software mix. It lacks effects!
Plenty of music (live mode), and background music (with autoplay).
Shuttle SB61G2/P4 2.6 GHz / 1 GB DDR 160 GB PC3200/SATA
HDJC in direct connection to HK LUCAS

GETTING STARTED

Yes
No
Not much, because Fran and not at all resembling interface to other software mix (BPM Studio, MixVibes, Atomix ...)
Yes

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

Version 2.5 rev n'tait not stable on the time stretching, but aa t corrected in 2.6, even in a corner.
As against the ASIO mode (it just may be the HDJC) sometimes becomes all "grsillant" must reslectionner the sound card in preferences to correct.
Super stable under Win XP SP2, never plant!

OVERALL OPINION

1 year
The +: The quality of sound, the precision of the loops, the management of the collection of MP3
The -: The lack of effects (apart from the filter which I never understood what it was)
Enormment: BPM Studio Pro, MP3 Atomix, Virtual DJ, PCDJ, New DJ, MixVibes ...
Q / P no top, we found 175 of http://www.playback.fr/
Yes!

Native Instruments Traktor DJ Studio 2
No problem encountered during the install.
The manual describes the minimum, the next practice.

GETTING STARTED

K8NE deluxe motherboard - Proc AMD 64 3200 + - 1GB of RAM 3200 to 200 GB hard - Sound card SB Extigy.
The software works perfectly.
Some differences in operation in accordance with certain key / function with the mouse.
Otherwise the software is stable

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I use it for 2 months (before I had her little brother: Traktor DJ).
Most: Loops - filters - classification of securities
The -: Synchro change significantly with the use of the mixer (I now use an outdoor table).

The price is a bit expensive but it's more functional IMHO, if I had to make another choice, it would be identical.

Native Instruments Traktor DJ Studio 2
Installation smooth (ie proficient in English), installed patches with no problem.
I run xp with either SP1 or SP2 there's no problem of compatibility (knock on wood)
should not be too install it on a 486 in respect of resources, but I personally do not find too greedy
Finally, the manual, it is rather simplistic, I find it unfortunate that we do not find rponses all our questions, thank you and god there are these forums!

GETTING STARTED

2.5.3 TDS I turn on a ASUS P4P800 SE, 1GB ram, 500GB your HD, SB Audigy 2 Platinum, P4 3Ghz Prescott.
then the software actually runs impeccable, I have never seen rowing (that said the quality of the drivers installed for playing bcp)

but of course, if you have 300 000 mp3, for a bit both in the 2-3 DIFFERENT files it train them to open ....

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I use it for 2 years now I am very happy
Strengths: scratching and loops
weakness: sometimes complicated for some configuration config (sound cards etc) and sometimes too much dcalage tempo / fast in a mix

qualitprix: a bit expensive for what it is but remember that there are 2 licenses (over their CD is copy protected)

Finally, if I ever make another choice, although it would h quick! : O) I'm leaving with nat (ive) lol

Native Instruments Traktor DJ Studio 2
Installation without problem!

Compatibility problems <> A freeze of the plate when loading a new song on the B (version 2.5.3, version 2.6 due out mid January ^ ^)

Configuration gnrale quite simple, not very intuitive but very glad it put a little!

Manuel enough!

GETTING STARTED

Most of the time, I have no worries this configuration sr>> And no worries on a P4 1.9GHz Laptop 512MB DDR + muse live!

Trs good performance>> Analysis and Access in fairly rapid Previous analysis trs fast!

It considerra it as "fairly stable"

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I use it for a year and a few

I love the fact of not carrying around all the CD / vinyl every time!

I test a lot of other soft and it suits me particulirement ...

on the other hand yes it is expensive compared trs possibilities.

I think I do it again this election but if the allocation of keys and how "listen" worked better for MIDI, then it is certain that the I Do not hesitate! ^ ^
