TRAKTOR PRO Ideas breakdown 2023
Thank you for engaging with us.
We’re an enthusiastic lot, and you should lean on us much, much more.
We love Traktor and want to see it flourish. 👍🏻2
As a playlist guru (and former NI employee), I need to be able to mark a song that mixes well with another song. I need to keep that relationship wherever those songs appear. I also need to be able to set a “mix into” hotcue, where the hotcue contains a list of (multiple) songs that would mix well with the current song if played at the point of the hotcue. Happy to help push this through further. Can also mock up some screenshots for you as well.11
funnily enough i downloaded your DDJ_1000 & BMTP mapping you did with traktor quite some time ago...
i couldnt wrap my head around how it all worked at the time.... nor do i own a DDJ_1000... i downloaded the mappings in order to make sense of BMTP and what i could possibily utilise within Traktor.
The knowledge base is a handy resource to view! thanks for providing that link, and thanks for the mapping which i will revisit in good time cheeRs2
Add midi command for each song!!!!0

In order to compose live DJ sets, I use two laptop, each of them with Traktor, four decks is not enough... The problem is that there is no way to effectively syncronize the two laptops. I also connect to analog synthesizers and sequencers to Traktor as well as Maschine.
The problem is that we cannot sync all this equipment with Traktor. Ableton Link has a latency that cannot be modifed, we have to live with slightly off beats, why? Connecting all two Traktors, Maschine and analog instruments through MIDI is not good either because MIDI tempo drifts after a while. Also, when we increase the BPM on Traktor, MIDI does not follow right away, it takes time to adjsut to the new beat and is off for about 15 seconds which is unacceptable.
Native Instruments and Traktor is supposed to be the software for DJs who compose, modify and create. That is the niche compared to Serato, Rekordbox, etc. I love the Remix Sets and the new Pattern Players, right on! I use them all the time but we need more in 2023. Traktor's niche is the creative DJ who brings live elements. Please help us sync everything and create live.
The ideas would be nice.. but how about fixing your software first ??
Flickering browser, slow search, extensive opening and closing times.. what happened to the best software in the world ??3

Really disappointing to hear low priority for Tidal.
You guys are building Aslice at the moment, so integrations are possible, it's just a business decision to prioritise Aslice over Tidal. No matter how you attempt to sugarcoat it, that's a fact.
Tidal is the MOST requested new feature above all others and the team still can't see how it makes financial sense.
New customers won't join Traktor to pay for all of the UI updates through Pro Plus, if basic features exist in other ecosystems.5
I don't know if the upcoming flexible grids feature will do this or not, but I'd like to see flexible grids implemented in a way where I can sync a fixed bpm track to a track with a live drummer. Usually the live drummer track gets flattened to fit a fixed grid, I'd like to be able to do the opposite. Let's me mix techno with an acoustic track and the techno track will speed up and slow down with the acoustic track.0
Aslicer is just uploading a simple text file + authentication. It's miles less complex compared to a streaming service.
But I agree with you, they already have other streaming services such as beatport link. Showing it's possible.0
if you set the live drmmer as the master, this will always happen0
The priority should ony be flexible beatgrids, by far the longest requested feature ever.2
What is with the intelligent Playlists? Is this task completed as it is ?? You still can‘t make a query like: list me all tracks between 95 and 105bpm from the genres hiphop, reggaeton & dancehall. This is not really so useful. There should be far more Options imo3
in the old forum I made a really simple suggestion to have two static levels of AND/OR queries
instead, the developers at the time wanted to do the really complex recursive queries, fully generalized.
without surprise this went nowhere, and users were left with the bare minimum v0.1 implementation now.1
It's mentioned in the post?
They claim the UI would get too complex :( They could make it optional.1
The most simple feature that would have the potential to solve all imaginable limitations of smartlists is one that is available in iTunes from the very beginning: Just make "is/is not in playlist XY" a criteria and BAM, you could built the most complex database queries you could ever think of. Including nesting of AND/OR as we are talking about here.
But for whatever reason no manufacturer of professional DJ software implemented this powerful feature. I wonder why.5
