Traktor is a household name when it comes to modern DJing. It was created by its parent company Native Instruments, which was founded in 1996. It was founded in Berlin, where its headquarters remains. However, it has since branched out and also has headquarters in Los Angeles. Traktor is best known for its DJ software but today it produces hardware as well. The quality and functionality of today’s Traktor software is almost unrivalled. The fact that they now produce hardware and software that is designed to work together ensures that DJ’s using this equipment have the best possible experience and can create truly amazing sounds.
Traktor as its Own Brand
Traktor first released DJ software in the year 2000. However, it was 2003 when the brand really started to take off. It developed software that could be used on Windows and Macintosh. Over the years, Traktor software has not only become more affordable, but it has used new technology to create DJ systems that have an outstanding number of functions on them.
Traktor now produces DJ equipment in a number of categories, including: Instruments and Effects, Digital DJing, Groove Sequencing and Sound Cards and Controllers. With so many different types of software and equipment available, Traktor can fulfil all of your needs, whether you are an amateur or a professional.
Traktor systems have many features, depending on the model that you choose. These include: four playback decks, many effects, an EQ that can emulate some of the most popular mixers on the market, looping, beat jumping and deck catching and track selection and crate flick – shows the top of each cover as a way of replicating how DJs used to flick through their vinyl collections. Popular products include the Traktor S2, Traktor Pro Software and excellent audio interfaces such as the Traktor Audio 6.
