Native Instruments has announced Traktor Remixed, a revision of the Traktor range to coincide with the imminent arrival of Traktor Pro 2.5.
Its due for release on May 30 — the same day as the Traktor Kontrol F1 add-on controller. All users of Traktor Pro 2 and Traktor Duo 2 will receive a free update to the latest Pro 2.5 software as soon as it’s available. The updated software version introduces the Remix Decks, which allow DJs to creatively remix and rearrange tracks before and during their actual performance.
As of today, users of Traktor Duo 2 and Traktor Scratch Duo 2 will receive a free upgrade to Traktor Pro 2. Traktor Pro 2 software comes free with a;; Traktor hardware
From today onwards, every Traktor hardware item will automatically come with the latest full Traktor Pro 2 version free of charge, which can then be updated to Pro 2.5 on its release. This applies to all Traktor Audio interfaces, controllers and Scratch systems. Traktor Pro 2 previously retailed for US$229 and is now available with the Traktor Audio 2 interface, for instance, for $119.
Users still running pre-Pro 2 versions of Traktor software can upgrade to the latest version, thanks to a time-limited offer. Owners of software-only versions (Traktor 1 to 3, Traktor Pro and Traktor Duo), as well as DJs using Traktor Scratch, Traktor Scratch Pro or Traktor Scratch Duo, can update to the latest version for $44.50 until April 30.
The Audio interfaces Traktor Audio 10 and Traktor Audio 6 are now exclusively available with their respective digital vinyl systems. Traktor Scratch A10 (renamed from Traktor Scratch Pro 2), features the 10-channel interface, and is now available at the new price of $559. Similarly, Traktor Scratch A6 (previously called Traktor Scratch Duo 2), contains the 6-channel Traktor Audio 6 and can now be purchased for $339.
This “remix” of the Traktor range also means permanent new price points for a number of products. The Traktor Pro 2 software can now be purchased at the NI Online Shop for $89, while Traktor Kontrol S2 now costs $559. More info can be found at http://www.native-instruments.com/Traktor .
