Result of years of DJ software development, TRAKTOR PRO has been designed to perfectly meet professional DJs' needs. Incorporating streamlined industry-standard workflows, 21 creative new effects, pre-assigned yet flexible MIDI mapping of all major controllers on the market, premium sound quality and up to four playback decks, TRAKTOR PRO redefines the art of DJing.
- four decks
With four decks, TRAKTOR PRO makes adding tracks, loops or samples a breeze. Ultra-precise beat detection and an automatic beat-grid give you the BPM readings you need for mixing, while the new Sync Lock function ensures that beat-matched tracks never drift out of time. Intelligent loop and cue functions let you easily deconstruct and remix tracks on the fly, while the master tempo detection allows you to play with four decks and FX all sync'd automatically.
Each of the four decks integrates legendary Allen & Heath Xone: 92 4-band EQ and filters, giving you full control of the entire frequency spectrum. For more drastic sound transformation, the incredible TRAKTOR PRO effects suite contains 21 effects chainable in groups of up to six at a time and controllable in either "easy" or "pro" mode. Everything from studio-quality delay and reverb to unique tempo sync'd performance effects such as IceVerb, Bitcrusher, Ring Modulator and Reverse Grain are included, all built with Native Instruments' groundbreaking REAKTOR technology.
Designed for the toughest of club environments and with detailed input from professional touring DJs, TRAKTOR PRO now features a user interface that truly excels in its simplicity, functionally and practicality. The interface groups together functions for logical and intuitive workflows, and is presented in a stylish design that remains highly readable from a distance. Featuring several different templates set up for different DJing styles, the interface is also completely customizable to your own specific requirements.
Crate Flick lets you browse your track collection using cover art, showing you the top portion of each track's cover as you flip through, just like digging in a record box. TRAKTOR PRO helps you quickly find tracks visually and even works with file formats that would normally not support artwork (AIFF, WAV). All metadata for your track collection is now fully portable, making it simple to switch between different computers. Controller settings and layout information is also transferable, ensuring TRAKTOR PRO delivers a new level of usability.
TRAKTOR PRO utilizes tried and tested processes that will be familiar to any pro DJ. Industry-standard workflows have been fully integrated into TRAKTOR PRO, whether using hotkeys, a mouse or a MIDI controller. Play, cue, hot cues, loop setting / adjusting, and jog wheel control behave in the same way as leading CD units, while portable track info and performance settings let you customize how TRAKTOR PRO works for you.
- flexible dj setup
TRAKTOR PRO is completely flexible. You can use your mouse and keyboard or a MIDI controller—all major controller brands now feature pre-mapped yet fully customizable MIDI assignments for TRAKTOR PRO.

- NEW EFFECTS FOR PRO
Users of TRAKTOR PRO and TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO are treated to three extra effects in this 1.2 version. Taking the total to 24 highly creative and professional effects, this update adds a Beat Slicer, and Formant Filter and a Peak Filter to your arsenal of weapons- all of which need to be heard to be believed.
- Four independent effect units:
The already impressive TRAKTOR effects section just got twice as nice. With the addition of two more effects units (in PRO versions only) the potential for warping and twisting your tracks has been vastly increased. With three separate effects chainable per unit, the possibilities are now almost endless.
- Native HID / Display Support
TRAKTOR now supports the HID (Human Interface Device) protocol for the Pioneer CDJ-400 and display support for the Denon DN-HC4500. HID is an alternative to MIDI control that boasts a much improved sensitivity, meaning even more precise control over pitch control and effects parameters etc. HID also utilizes the product displays to show TRAKTOR info such as track name, remaining time etc, directly on the hardware.
- IMPROVED TIME-STRETCHING ALGORITHM
The new advanced Élastique time stretching algorithm delivers a new level in time-stretching quality at an amazing workload efficiency. The algorithm has been developed to detect tonal and transient components in your tracks with high accuracy, making the Keylock function in TRAKTOR 1.2 sound pristine. The new algorithm also ensures exceptional efficiency in CPU usage.
