Native Instruments today announced Traktor Duo and Traktor Scratch Duo, two new DJ solutions that bring the acclaimed Traktor Pro platform into a lower price range, offering an affordable entry into the world of digital DJing.
The new Traktor Duo software offers many of the advanced features of Traktor Pro like auto-syncing, looping, integrated EQs and filters, and more, in an easy-to-use 2-deck configuration. Automatic beat-gridding in combination with the Sync Lock function makes sure that the tracks in Traktor Duo never drift out of sync, giving users more time to focus on the creative aspects of digital mixing. Extensive Crate Flick cover artwork support also allows users to visually browse music libraries in an especially efficient way.
Traktor Scratch Duo combines the Duo software with the durable AUDIO 4 DJ 24bit/96 kHz audio interface, creating a professional time-code controlled DJ system. Traktor Scratch Duo is the 2-deck DVS solution for users that do not want to compromise on quality in any way. It is based on the industry-leading 2kHz high-resolution time-code technology of Traktor Scratch Pro that allows for extremely responsive and precise hands-on control through turntables and CD decks.
Traktor Duo and Traktor Scratch Duo will be available in April for $119/€99 and $399/€349 respectively. Owners of either one will be able to upgrade to the Traktor Pro software at a discounted price at any time, gaining access to 2 additional decks, a full range of over 20 effect types, Internet broadcasting and audio recording functions, as well as extended sync and MIDI features.
A Traktor Pro Demo Version is available. It requires Mac OS 10.4.x or higher and an Intel Mac.
