Native Instruments Announces Traktor Duo & Traktor Scratch Duo – Entry Level DJ Software
Native Instruments has announced Traktor Duo and Traktor Scratch Duo, two new software DJ mixing solutions that bring the quality and creative functionality of Traktor Pro platform into an entry-level price range.
The new Traktor Duo software, which is also at the heart of Scratch Duo, offers many of the advanced features of Traktor Pro in an easy-to-use two-deck configuration. It is based on the same user interface, and features auto-syncing, looping, integrated EQs and filters, and more. Automatic beat-gridding in combination with the “Sync Lock” function makes sure that the tracks in Traktor Duo never drift out of sync. Extensive “Crate Flick” cover artwork support also allows users to visually browse music libraries.
Traktor Scratch Duo combines the Duo software with the robust and full-featured AUDIO 4 DJ 24bit/96 kHz audio interface into a professional time-code controlled DJ system. It is based on the industry-leading 2kHz high-resolution time-code technology of Traktor Scratch Duo that allows for responsive and precise hands-on control through turntables and CD decks.
Two performance effects sections offer six studio-quality algorithms including DJ standards like flanger, delay, reverb and more. To give DJs convenient control over their performance, the Duo versions also offer state-of-the-art MIDI controller integration, and come with mappings for all
relevant hardware controllers on the market.
Owners of Traktor Duo and Scratch Duo will also be able to upgrade to the Traktor Pro software at a discounted price at any time, gaining access to two additional decks, a full range of over 20 effect types, Internet broadcasting and audio recording functions, as well as extended sync and MIDI features.
Traktor Duo and Traktor Scratch Duo will be available from April 1st for a suggested retail price of $119 / €99 and $399 / €349 respectively. More information on Native Instruments Traktor Duo and Traktor Scratch Duo.
