Open discussion for an additional business model proposal
Been Traktor users for years and even if am now on Serato, due to the latest beta, i tested back Traktor and god, what did i miss this beautiful sound and features.
This let me bring to the fact that the current business model is good but nobody is using Traktor compared to Serato and Rekordbox DJ.
For improve this, they should add an additional business model where you can pay for any third party controller mapping and that NI provides also support on it. For security reasons, the mapping should be locked to the NI account so there is no way to export it and share it. Modifying mapping is possible and remain locked with the account. Depending on the complexity of the mapping ,the price could differ.
Also, you can have a trial version of the controller mapping limited in time to test it.
This would be simply awesome for Tractor as it doesn't bring to much costs (no that many new controllers in the last years) but they can money with this.
Anyone who currently would like to test Traktor these days (lets say, DDJSX3, FlX6 of NS4FX,REV7- REV1 ) will simply not be able to test it as due to the fact there is no mapping or neither a valid community mapping.
Traktor still remains for me the best DJ software but nobody will play/test with it as they are unable to do so. With this party paying mapping addon, this opens Traktor to many DJ who would previously not even think to play with Traktor.
As the current price for Traktor seems really low seing the features, having to paid for the mapping doesn't really sound overkill.
Anyway, just an open discussion i wanted to share with you.
