Native Instruments just released TRAKTOR 3.4 and TRAKTOR SCRATCH 1.3, free software updates that equip both products with refined functionality that reinforces their position at the leading edge of computer-based DJing. In their latest versions, both TRAKTOR 3 and TRAKTOR SCRATCH are upgraded with crucial architectural improvements as well as with enhanced time-code and MIDI control functionality.
TRAKTOR 3.4 and TRAKTOR SCRATCH 1.3 now offer full Unicode support, allowing for file names and tags in nearly any international script and language including Japanese, Mandarin, Hebrew, Cyrillic and others. Both versions are also based on a revised high-performance audio engine that offers many functional advantages including hot-plugging and instant switching for audio interfaces, WASAPI support for Windows Vista and more.
Other improvements in TRAKTOR 3.4 and TRAKTOR SCRATCH 1.3 include increased tracking precision for scratching in relative mode, a new intelligent "Tracking Alert" function that gives early warning for adverse conditions like worn-out needles, enhanced MIDI controller handling and a large number of detail optimizations and fixes.
Both updates are now available as free downloads for all users of TRAKTOR 3 and TRAKTOR SCRATCH respectively.
