Traktor DJ Review – DJ Mixing Software

My review of Traktor DJ can help you decide if it’s the right DJ mixing software for you.

What is Traktor DJ?

A DJ mixing software, Traktor can be installed on your Windows or Mac laptop and used with either a DJ console or can also be used as vinyl or CD emulation mixing software.

What are the main features?

The main features that stand out are:

1. 4 decks functionality

This means you can plug in extra sources: 2 vinyl decks, an extra laptop and so on.

A very useful feature if you have several DJs or are using multiple sound sources.

2. Cool zoom on waveform

Some DJs like to have close control by monitoring the waveform of their tracks.

Not all of us do this, but it can be practical for time stretching parts of your tracks and sampling.

3. Beat jumping inside a track

Being able to jump right away to another part of your track can set you apart from other DJs and enable you to remix on the fly.

Imagine being able to snap back to a vocal when no one expects it and then jump back to the later part of the track again.

That’s what top DJs do to make people go wild in clubs.

4. Close control on EQ

EQ is essential for getting sound quality spot on, especially when playing in big rooms or clubs.

A happy crowd is one who are getting better sound quality.

People enjoy the music more and dance a lot more.

5. Excellent search facilities

In my opinion this is the best feature. Having tunes that are easy to find is a massive advantage.

Getting stressed because you are stuck with your track name or spelling is something no DJ wants. After all, not finding the best track can ruin a set.

For me, as well as the Native Instruments Traktor S4 controller, this is the best bit about Traktor.
