Traktor 2.6.8 + HID (Pioneer NXS) - will it work? or use Traktor 3?

I think the main question is in the title:

I've got a gig tonight - the venue has cdjs and a djm 900nxs thingy and havent been able to get turntables.

I usually play with DVS and I still use 2.6.8 - yes, i know. but i like it,i have years worth of playlists and it never fails me.


If i set it up with the 3 usb cables, will 2.6.8 work in HID mode. OR should I use Traktor 3.

OR should I use my timecode CDs so its basically like DVS (and if so then I only need one cable to the mixer right?)

Supplemental question! - If I do have to use Traktor 3, is there a way I can bring in Traktor 2's library without damaging it/overwriting labels etc?

Apologies in advance, I know the answer is to have been using T3 since forever but..well thats not where I am today with a gig in 6 hrs... thank you !

    TP 2.6.8 is the best and most stable version of TP 2. If this is all you need, stick with it. You can import your TP 2 collection onto TP 3 if you need to. I never had any trouble with overwriting labels, but then i always have traktor save the info in the audio file tags themselves so they will automatically port after checking consistency.

    I have no answer for DVS since i am not a user.

    I know right! People say im mad but it makes me happy (2.6.8)

    Fingers crossed on the HID. If not I've got the timecode cds. and backup rekordbox usbs so....

    But for traktor pro 2 there was a stable version, this is version 2.9.0 for me,she just worked better, but it supported 32-bit and 64-bit, in version 2.0.3 there was a difference ,that other versions of traktor pro 2 and traktor pro 3 do not have this,when you moved the scratch, the pitch moved at the same time Well, the pitch-tеmp was moving up and down.

    that's what I mean,

    well when you move the deck with the computer mouse and create a scratch and at the same time the picth runs up and down automatically

    Well, as if he was moving the pitch with one hand and scratching with the other ,on the DJ console, and in this version it was realized that it was done with a computer mouse and it changed the sound of scratching.

     Yes i know, a little uncomfortable, because the front text must be copied somewhere and edited and then inserted again.Why when i click to edit the text that text is completely removed from the field when i should be able to edit that text in that field, add words, sentences and save the changes.

    lol this thread took an unexpected direction.. :)

    I thought for posterity and in case it helps I'd tie off with a quick update what happened at the gig.

    HID did not work. Traktor saw the mixer as the sound card which was great but the CDJS - nah. I swear i did everything the videos said but i couldnt find the HID mode on the CDJS which I'm told is cos they didnt recognise a computer/software attached. IDK - dodgy cable, bad USB hub, or just my stupidity.

    I was gonna use my X1 but in the end i used the back up USBs I made in Rekordbox. TBH I can see why people use them when djing - my bag would have been a lot lighter! But I did miss loops and the better library mgmt.

    Anyhoo - to answer my own question..did it work. No. But it should have.
