    They just removed the roadmap 🤷‍♀️

    They are working on something, but they are not very fast.

    will there be any improvement in the program?

    We just get the 3.11 release a few days ago.

    will someone release new controllers?

    We just got a new controller recently. But If I had to guess I would say they are probably working on something. But with NI you never know when they are going to release any news.

    unfortunately many djs abandon traktor and use serato or rekordbox...

    If you are want something the others have and traktor is missing, I would advice you to switch over.

    What else you going to do? Even if they now come out and say they are working on the feature, that can still take years.

    From the roadmap thread:

    As we gear up for next year’s updates, we are revisiting how we share our next steps moving forward, meaning there won't be an update of the roadmap in this quarter (Q4 2023). We will share the next steps with you after the release of version 3.11, so stay tuned for that in January.

    Just look at the NI homepage and you know where the priorities of the company are. They have a lot of old legacy products like Traktor that will take significant resources to take to the next level.

    I will agree with you as I am happy with the NI company but seeing other DJING programs improve so quickly it saddens me that TRAKTOR instead of improving with any substantial change just fixes only bugs in every update

    IMO fixing the bugs is more important than new features.

    My wishlist is simple :

    • Soundswitch Lighting support
    • Flexibel Beatgrids
    • Realtime Stems
    • Tidal
    • some new FX effects like Pioneer Duck Down, Dub Echo, Echo-out, Fill-out and a louder Noise effect

    :)

    I totally agree with you, but I would also like a new controller look like pioneer dj-1000

    what is the status of traktor for iPad? Is it discontinued? It’s a great backup or even small gig tool and is rock solid.

    Yes. Last release Apr 30, 2020 and last bugfix shortly after.

    Been using Traktor Pro for over 15 years, now with the S4, but I would love to see;

    • Mobile support for S4 (iPhone/iPad) and/or Traktor Mobile, so you can easily bring your library with you when no laptop around (mobile is always in your pocket)
    • Bring Traktor Pro to Mobile or at least iPad 😀
    • Soundcloud integration for Traktor Pro
    • An update to the S4 controller and/or S8

    Well it would be a completely missed opportunity if they didn’t use all the newly acquired technology at Izotope for stem separation.

    We won't see any of this in Traktor in its current incarnation.

    We're being coerced into paying through the nose for Traktor Pro Subscription (Traktor Pro Plus).

    What will happen, is, maybe, SOME of these features will CREEP into Pro Plus (to coerce us into subscribing). Then, at some point, the NI DJ Product, Traktor Pro, is going to be replaced (maybe by another Traktor product) that will be subscription ONLY. At that point, those of us that are not already paying for Plus, but still using Pro, will be offered a discount to jump ship.

    Now, this is COMPLETELY NI's choice. I'm not (necessarily) whinging about it. Personally, I'd hate to have to subscribe, and don't know if I would. But, what are the non-subscription (for now?) DVS options out there that are comparable to Traktor?
