    The specifications say M1/M2 so it looks like no, although they might be out of date. You can always try the demo version from here -DJ Software : Traktor Pro 3 : Demo And Downloads | Traktor (native-instruments.com)

    It's limited to 30 minute play time, but that should give you plenty of time to see if it works ok.

    I think TP3 will run on M3-SoCs as all AppleSilicon share the same architecture (M1, M2 -whatever base, Pro, Max).

    Strong word of advice, Apple Silicon versions of Traktor are crashing for many people under M1/M2 Macs. I have used every single version and I still get very frustrating crashes up until 3.11, that's why I am trying to roll back to version 3.8 and use it thru Rosetta (the emulator that allows non Apple Silicon native versions of software to run on M1/M2/M3 chips).

    You should give both alternatives a try and see how they work for you.

    Remember that Rosetta has to be enabled/installed on new Macs, before non native software even opens. It should happen automatically after a few system notifications.

    Best of luck!

    very interesting responses from the crew here..

    now although i cannot vouch for whether the m3 will work...

    i can verify that the m1 works rather well.... mind you im using a m1 mac mini... and unless you are doing something major in the graphics department... using a m3 for traktor is probably overkill, well above spec if it did work without issue... but given the responses much like my own.. we probably dont own a m3, for good reason ... its likely overkill

    but hey... if the i5 works fine stay with it... until you begin to hit a brick wall when attempting to do more in the audio environment!!

    i reached a brick wall with the previous windows PC i7-4770k 4.1ghz i owned, the jump to m1 mac mini was a huge improvement in terms of pushing more audio channels/plugins/applications without causing crackle pops etc...

    you make do with what you have... until that brickwall is reached, where no matter what you try, the physical limitations of a computers CPU becomes the brickwall

    Traktor 3.10 with M1 Pro at Sonoma 14.3.1. on S4MK3 works stable with no problems

    Traktor 3.11.1 with M1 Pro, OSX Ventura works stable never had a crash, to be honest before i was on mid 2012 macbook with Traktor 3.4.2 never had one crash in all that time. I upgraded last year to the macbook pro m1. downside is i had to give up on my xi mk1's as they became obsolite with the m1 macbooks and got the x1 mk3. As for stability with the m1 macbook have never had a crash since i got it with Traktor. i believe if you set it up correctly they are very stable, i play out 5 days a week in club enviroments, beach enviroments and bars, connect in Hid to cdj's in clubs or play connected to xdj -xz even the new opus quad with TSI's and have not had a single glitch with macbook pro m1 and traktor 3.4.2 or 3.11.1 even my mid 2012. @DJDL perhaps you are doing something wrong along the way, but to say many people are finding crashes is not true, many people find no issues. perhaps it is just the luck of the draw, who knows.

    traktor 3.11.1 on M3 Max 36GB Sonoma 14.3.1 no problems with S8, S4MK3, CDJ3000, DJM V10. only consistency check is not working. crashed with " not enough memory, close other programs" but no other programs are running. the same problem is with M1 Pro. so have to check consistency with Win 10 :)

    Have my MBP with M3 Max since December 2023. With my Xone:96 and Kontrol X1 Mk2 no issues and crashes until now. With my Kontrol S4 Mk3 it is still stable but have some flickering sometimes in TP3.

    And for anyone who thinks TP3 runs more stable via Rosetta: You don't need the old versions. Go to the folder where Traktor App is located, open the information window and tick "Open with Rosetta". As Traktor is an universal binary it runs the Intel code via Rosetta then. If it runs more stable than the native Apple Silicon code? Never tried it in a performance as I have no problems with my Apple Silicon machines so far.
