A new beta version of Traktor has been released by Native Instruments with the number 1.2.0 R7649. Since I was already working with the first beta version I decided to keep up with the latest one. I didn’t find any major issues in the previous release, however the beta forum from Native Instruments does show a number of topics regarding crashes or incorrect behavior.
Like the rest of the DJ Scene I’m also very curious at what Pioneers next generation DJ Product will look like. The rumors and guesses about how it will look like are enormous. So for now we can just count down and see what is coming…
I was going completely out of my mind during the creation of this mashup. I was still a bit frustrated by the fact that I’ve recently been to late with the ideas or releases of some mashups. So I was looking at the currently popular tracks that I would like to see mashed up. The Sugar song from Flo Rida was one that popped out of the list because, I wasn’t really happy with the R&B beat behind it and some of the breaks in the track.
A few weeks ago Native Instruments started with a public test of Traktor 1.2 beta in all Pro/Duo Scratch/Non-Scratch versions. Since I was looking forward to the new “Elastique Pro” timestretching algorithm that would be in the next version I also joined the beta. And so far so good, the beta seems to be stable and have some nice improvements. I’ve focused my testing on the new Key Lock algorithm.
Today I discovered that my YouTube mashups Ida Engberg VS. Shannon – Let the disco volante music play sounded distorted.
