Native Instruments Releases TRAKTOR DJ App Exclusively for iPhone & iPod touch
TRAKTOR DJ, top-selling professional DJ app for iPad, now released for iPhone and iPod Touch
Berlin, May 2, 2013 – Native Instruments today released the TRAKTOR DJ for
iPhone App, available now on the App Store for iPhone and iPod touch.
Following the release of the unique, hands-on DJ app for iPad, TRAKTOR DJ for
iPhone delivers the same intuitive workflow and advanced feature set as the iPad
version, with an optimized interface to fit the screen real estate of iPhone and
iPod touch. The TRAKTOR DJ for iPhone App is aimed at DJs of all levels from
novices to touring professionals. Users of TRAKTOR PRO, Native Instruments’
flagship DJ software for Mac and PC, can also complement their setups with bidirectional
content synchronization with TRAKTOR DJ for iPhone.
The release of TRAKTOR DJ for iPhone is the realization of one of Native
Instruments’ long-term visions – to use touch-controlled waveform displays to
create a more direct way to interact with music. The success of the iPad version
demonstrates this new paradigm has been eagerly adopted by the DJ and wider
TRAKTOR DJ for iPhone follows its iPad counterpart in putting the waveform at
the center of user interaction. A user interface optimized for the iPhone’s screen
size delivers the same dedicated 3-band EQ and filter sections, and 8 proven
TRAKTOR effects as the iPad version. Users can view both decks simultaneously
or use the convenient touch slider to quickly adjust the size of each waveform in
relation to the other. This allows users to set loops, perform scratches, mark cue
points for live re-editing, and scrub, browse or navigate through tracks with the
same precision and ease available to iPad users – all in the most portable version
of the industry-leading professional DJ software to date.
Also on board are TRAKTOR DJ’s advanced performance features. Freeze Mode
lets users slice up a waveform into playable parts for on-the-fly remixing and
entirely new musical performances. Users can also create beat grids in real time,
intuitively mapping out a song’s groove without having to stop the music.
TRAKTOR’s refined automatic tempo detection, sync engine, and precise
downbeat analysis make beat mixing completely straightforward and free users to
creatively interact with their music via the touch interface. A powerful
recommendation engine uses advanced tempo, key, and timbre detection
algorithms to recommend compatible tracks with the same tempo and harmonic
structure in real time. This allows users of all levels to create smooth and earpleasing
mixes. Users have access not only to their TRAKTOR collection, but
also the music available on their iPhone or iPod touch. And thanks to TRAKTOR
DJ’s Notification Center, users learn the app at their own pace, unobtrusively
receiving tips, tricks, and techniques from within the app.
TRAKTOR DJ bi-directionally syncs track settings and properties with TRAKTOR
PRO. This gives DJs an ideal workflow for planning a set when on the move.
Users can also transfer their stored work in TRAKTOR PRO directly to TRAKTOR
DJ – all beat grids, cue points, loops and BPM counts seamlessly transfer
between iPhone and TRAKTOR PRO and back via a free Dropbox account.
Additionally, because of the powerful Core Audio engine built into iOS,
TRAKTOR DJ for iPhone also offers ultra-low latency playback, manipulation and
recording while also supporting professional class compliant hardware audio
interfaces, such as the TRAKTOR AUDIO 6 and 10, something currently not
possible on any other mobile platform. DJs can connect these and other devices
to their iPad using the Camera Connection Kit™ for optimum audio quality and
pre-listen and cue functionality, or via a splitter cable with dedicated cue and
master controls. All of this allows TRAKTOR DJ users to easily record their mixes
live on their iPad, or pump their music out to the house in the highest quality
