How to record and share using Traktor Pro
It’s quite simple to record your mixes using Traktor Pro, but you end up with enormous WAV files, which are not suitable for sharing.
Traktor Pro is a professional DJ application for mixing digital music as well as CDs and Vinyl.
Whether you want to rock your bedroom or the club, Traktor Pro is a very complete program that does pretty much everything you might want. It's highly configurable, which makes it very flexible but also pretty inaccessible to beginners. There is extensive documentation for Traktor Pro, but even that is pretty scary!
As well as controlling external sources, Traktor Pro allows you to mix from your computer on up to four decks at once. Importing your music library is really simple, and it works with iTunes libraries too. Tracks are analyzed when loaded into a deck, and appear as a wave form that can be moved with the mouse, alongside the beats per minute (BPM) and much more information. Traktor Pro is pretty accurate when it comes to finding BPMs, but if it is wrong, you can set them manually.
All the usual mixing tools are present, with pitch control, crossfader effects, and levels. There is extensive hotkey mapping, which is fully configurable, but takes a lot of time to do. Once you get used to Traktor Pro, it reveals itself as an incredible DJ tool. With some practice you'll be able to create fantastic mixes, which you can record from within the program.
Traktor Pro is an excellent and incredibly powerful DJ application with a steep learning curve that is worth climbing.
Industry standard professional DJ software.
Traktor is the industry standard DJ software.
You will need a compatible external sound-card (go on native instruments website to check compatibility) to utilize an external mixer OR a Traktor interface (all in one controller + mixer - TRY BEFORE YOU BUY ! ).
There are several fantastic Traktor external controllers like the X1 and S1 (sample player) which again, have both swiftly become industry standard.
Traktor features up to 4 decks simultaneously, with sample decks capable of storing up to 16 samples per deck. This really helps creativity, as do the intuitive cue+loop features, enabling on the fly remixes of your favorite tunes.
Beat Grid and SYNC enable you to seamlessly mix tunes perfectly into one another. There is also a massive selection of effects in which you can multi-layer per channel.
The record box is my favorite feature, easily enabling the creation of diverse playlists containing single tracks into multiple locations. By this I mean that there is one physical location of your song, but the location can be copied across many multiple instances. Every set list is saved historically and sets are quick and easy to export to USBs or other devices. Click on any artist name, and you can punch up all locations where the artist name appears. And it's iTunes compatible, so you can directly access and play your iTunes library through the Tracktor interface.
It's simply the best software out there, and combined with a Macbook's grunt and power will deliver your sounds the best way that it is possible to deliver.
