Traktor 3.2 goes Universal
Native Instruments today released Traktor 3.2, an update to its DJ software that brings a wide range of functional enhancements along with native compatibility for Intel-based Macs as a Universal Binary. TRAKTOR 3.2 offers DJs improved creative functionality, reliability and ease of use across the board, according to Native Instruments, with synchronized track mirroring between decks and seamless Hot Cueing as well as stripe navigation. Traktor 3.2 also features optimized tempo detection, new WAV tag writing, an enhanced External Mixer mode, extended MIDI controller integration, an extended user manual, and a large number of optimizations/fixes. The update is available for free to registered users of Traktor 3, and costs $30 for new users.
The latest revision includes enhanced integration with Beatport -- an internet-based digital club music store -- allowing users to browse, purchase, and download music releases from directly within Traktor 3. Native Instruments also noted, however, that it will remove FinalScratch support from all copies of the Traktor software distributed after January 1st, 2007 due to legal considerations.
