    Sonoma isn't officially released yet.

    Like with every beta software you might experience problems, bugs and incompatibilities with the software itself and with software (like Traktor) you install on a beta-OS.

    You can try, but to be safe wait until NI proves Traktor´s Sonoma compatibility.

    Sonoma will be release tomorrow. The RC version is the final.

    In the past, there were only minor issues when updating macOS. But, it always takes some time after the release of a new macOS until NI officially confirms fully compatibility.

    If you depend on Traktor (or any other pro audio app) because of upcoming gigs, don't install Sonoma right on release. Wait at least for the first Sonoma bug fix release. And see if people report problems.

    Never ever install an OS major version upgrade on a production computer, especially when you are in the middle of a project.

    Wait for several minor version updates after its major version upgrade to upgrade.

    Only upgrade when you do your due diligence and check that all your hardware peripherals, software and plug-ins you are using are fully compatible with the OS upgrade, and also only upgrade in-between projects when you have time to do backups and for troubleshooting.

    Sonoma has been out for several days now.

    Historically Traktor certification for a new major OS has trailed OS release by at least 60 days, more often 90-120 days.

    If you have an important place / time to play, I would not upgrade your Mac until after you play it.

    For the record, I've always been fairly angry at N+I for not supporting new releases *at the time of release*. N+I will (or should) have had the software for many months prior to the release, and (as Ableton, and other major music platforms do) could have done extensive testing before release - especially using the final release candidate - and be ready on release day. Apple provides release candidates to any software vendor for the express purpose of giving them time to validate / fix before release.

    IMO NOT doing this pre-release testing / certification is - plain and simply - an egregious and N+I engineering leadership dictum that is based solely on the pride, power & ego of the engineering / product lead - with that person (who is unknown to me) believing their (decidedly old school) approach is the only sound approach. (I don't know if the team / leadership are based in Germany, but (forgive my stereotyping) this approach is a classic German software company approach.) And it is also driven by under-staffing within the Traktor group - which has loooong been the case (since the software's functionality growth is at the very low end of the industry).

    It's one of the reasons I threaten over and over to change platforms.

    For the record, it is now much easier for me to consider this switch. The new(ish) software "Lexicon" for DJ library management is a stunningly good bit of software, and can make migration away from Traktor a breeze (though not any less expensive).

    Maybe now's the time to re-examine my situation.

    Several days.. 🤣🤣 Not yet 48 hours.

    No other audio softwares (AbletonLive, DjayPro, Serato...) is listing macOS 14 support at the moment.


    BTW: I updated to Sonoma and Traktor 3.10 runs fine. Even my old controller and its audio interface work without issues. Everything feels snappy.

    I have installed Sonoma on a MacBook Pro 2019 Intel 2,3 GHz 8-Core Intel Core i9 and the only issue is with my Z1, cannot be seen in Traktor pro 3 or in the control configuration tool but can be seen in the driver application. X1 and audio 6 are working fine

    I tried Sonoma on my 2018 Macbook pro Intel 2,3 GHz 8-Core Intel Core i9 and it didnt recognize my Z1 mk 2 and X1 worked but super lagy.

    Really liked the sonoma features but had to downgrade back.

    Would love for Traktor Pro to have an update to work with sonoma

    I have same issue, Z1 not working on Sonoma... X1 does... Damn, a downgrade is such a pain. I filled a case with support, if there are news will let you know.

    The joy of Mac computing.

    Sorry, I understand how little helpful that is, but, meh... It would annoy the cr** out of me, if every OS upgrade breaks something. Literally doesn't happen at all in the Windows world.

    I have Traktor 3.10.x and only X1 works on macOS Sonoma. The Z1 does not light up at all when plugged in. However if X1 and Z1 are plugged in at the same time, the X1 does not work anymore, the play button in Traktor doesn't work even when mouse-clicked. The Z1 does not work on its own either. However once I unplug the Z1, the X1 resumes to work just fine.

    Hopefully someone at NI fixes this it's annoying as hell and I REALLY don't wanna downgrade macOS.

    All dj software is the same, when a new osx comes out, it takes awhile for it to be compatible has been like this from the start, why are you upgrading osx the minute it comes out, if you are feeling frustrated you have only yourself to blame really. Until traktor or any dj software company states, that the software is compatible it is on you and only you if you upgrade and then run into problems..

    Hello,

    the Pioneer Aggregator is no longer shown to me in the audio settings of Traktor Pro 3 under OS Sonoma. Before the update to Sonoma it worked without any problems, both of my CDJ 2000NXS could be used without any problems. Maybe someone has the same or a similar problem?

    Looks like Traktor 3.10.0 should be officially compatible with macOS Sonoma / 14.0 …
