Traktor Scratch 1.2 update
Native Instruments today unveiled Traktor Scratch 1.2, a free software update to its professional digital DJ system, adding a number of features, as well as improved performance. Traktor Scratch uses digital turntables and CD-based DJ systems to alter digital music tracks. The new version also features tighter integration with iTunes, and enhanced time code tracking. New users can purchase Traktor Scratch for $700.
The update enables a manual loop function, which allows users to create loops in tracks without the use of beat grids. Traktor Scratch's effects section is greatly enhanced, offering a wide range of improvements from Traktor 3. Version 1.2 also includes an enhanced time code meter, and many detail optimizations and fixes.
