Native Instruments announces TRAKTOR PRO 3

Publicado en DJ Software

September 6, 2018, Berlin – Native Instruments today announces a new version of its flagship DJ software, TRAKTOR PRO 3. The announcement sees TRAKTOR build on almost two decades of club heritage to extend the possibilities of DJ performance and provide performers of all genres and abilities with the tools they need to define their own style.

TRAKTOR PRO 3, the full version of which is included with both new hardware releases, is the most stable version of the software yet, and uses the new Elastique 3 time-stretching engine for noticeable audio improvements. The user interface has been redesigned with a sharper and flatter look for better readability in club environments, while the intuitive workflow, to which many performers have become accustomed, remains intact.

Several brand-new features have also been added: TRAKTOR PRO 3 now includes Mixer FX – one-knob effect and filter controls that can be assigned to each channel independently and used for big buildups and transitions. And DJs using an external mixer can now route unprocessed audio directly from TRAKTOR, thanks to a new mode that bypasses the software’s internal mixer. A full feature set will be announced on September 25.


Pricing & availability
Traktor Pro 3 will be available on October 18th 2018, for a price of €/US$ 99.
Owners of a Traktor Pro 2 license can buy an upgrade for €/USD 49.

Acapella tracks: where can you find them?

Publicado en Tech Tips

A remix is often the vocal part of a song mixed with the instrumental part of another song, or more than one song.

The 2 major types of vocal tracks are:

  • a cappella [a kkapˈpɛlla] or acapella = a vocal song or section intended to be heard solo (in latin "a capella" means "in the chapel", so it is the song as one could hear in a chapel, with no instrumental backing),
  • isolated vocal track = a vocal track originally not intended to be heard solo. It may be a separate recording of a microphone (or several microphones) in studio/performance or the result of a processing to extract the voice from an audio track merging the voice(s) and musical instruments,

For the sake of clarity, vocal tracks are hereafter called acapellas even when they are isolated vocal tracks.

You can find on Youtube tons of acapellas to learn, train and have fun:

Serato DJ 1.9.6 Now Available

Publicado en DJControl Jogvision

This release includes features improvements for DJControl Jogvision users as:
  • Cue points color match: DJControl Jogvision RGB pads now reflect the cue point color even if you change it from the default colours,
  • Loops Enhancements: Chronological Loops, Reordering Loops,
  • FX: Favorite FX banks
  • Increased stability through audio and memory optimizations


Cue Color Match enhancement
Whether you change the rank of the cue points, as sorting Cues Chronologically, or whether you assign another colour to a cue point, each pad of DJControl Jogvision now matches the color the cue point it controls.

Chronological Loops & Cue
When the "Sort Cues and Loops Chronologically" option is turned on, each track’s saved Loops and Cues will be displayed in the order they appear throughout the track, rather than the order they were created in, which simplifies the workflow of saving and triggering Cues and Loops.

Reordering Loops
After creating your Loops you may wish to have them saved in a specific order: this let you drag saved loops to the position of your choice

Favorite FX Banks
You can now have two entirely different FX Banks saved, available to load whenever needed.
Each bank when saved will remember the FX loaded with each parameter that was set. This is useful when wanting to switch between two configurations. For example, you could have Bank A for Single FX and Bank B for Multi FX, or Bank A for subtle FX such as Reverb, Filter and Bank B for performance FX such as Pitch Looper, Tremolo.
Once you've got a Favorite FX Bank saved you go on to use other FX inside Serato DJ, then you recall your favorite in clicking back on the A or B bank button.

Traktor Pro 2.8.0 released

Publicado en DJ Software

The Traktor Team is pleased to announce that a new version of Traktor Pro 2 – version 2.8.0 – is now available for download via Service Center. The update from previous Traktor Pro 2 releases is free.

64-Bit Application Architecture
Definition
: Traktor Pro now has a 64-bit architecture to access all the available RAM on computers with 64-bit operating systems, instead of accessing only to 2GB of RAM on the previous Traktor release.
Result: The access to more RAM allows Traktr Pro to manage of more items (larger Track Collections, more Remix Deck samples, better playback caching, etc.).

Multi-Processor Improvement
Traktor Pro 2.7.0 decreased the audio performance on some multiprocessor computers compared to Traktor Pro 2.6.8.
2.8.0 releases improves the performance on multiprocessors computers, and improves the audio performance compared to 2.70 release.

Automatic Deck Flavor Switching
Definition: Automatic Deck Flavor Switching means loading or dragging a Track or Remix Set onto a deck causes the deck to become automatically a track deck or a remix deck to play this content in the appropriate mode.
Target: Automatic Deck Flavor Switching, previously limited to Kontrol S8 Browser, is now available to any user of Traktor Pro 2.8.

Parallel Audio Analysis
Definition: The “Parallel Processing” mode is new mode for Traktor Pro to use multiple threads to analyze several tracks simultaneously.
Access: This option can be activated at the bottom of the Analysis window you get when right clicking on tracks and choosing “Analyze” from the context menu.


Target: Processing large collections of files is faster with this option enabled, but more CPU consuming, so it should not be done while performing but in an offline situation.

There are other new features as the support of Native Instruments controller Traktor Kontrol D2 and some bugfixes.

Traktor Pro 2.80 does not support Mac OS 10.8.

DJControl Jogvision - First live demo in Frankfurt Musik Messe, from April 15 to 18th, 2015

Publicado en DJControl Jogvision

Frankfurt, April 14, 2015 - Hercules and Serato are pleased to invite you to come and check out the first ever live demo of DJControl Jogvision with Serato DJ Intro.Musikmesse, booth C44, Hall 5, Ebene 1

 

DJControl Jogvision, bundled with Serato DJ Intro and Serato DJ Upgrade Ready, enhances the performances put on by mobile DJs. It is the most portable DJ controller featuring in-jog displays, and the most accessible.

 

The display in the center of each jog wheel simultaneously indicates both the playback speed, and the position in the track. This makes it possible for DJs to look at their computer screen less often, for improved focus on mixing, faster reaction times and better syncing of tracks. DJs can now pay more attention to their music, and to the audience.

 

"With help from members of the DJ community, our goal in designing this controller was to produce the best jog wheels in our product range, whose feel, handling and visual indicators allow for the best performances when mixing and scratching," explains Claude Guillemot, CEO of Guillemot Corporation S.A. "This has also been our motivation in working with Serato, whose software applications are perfect in terms of providing the very best experience with this new controller. Our work together has been remarkable, and we are very happy with the end results. We would like to thank all of Serato’s teams for the excellent quality of our interactions with them."

DJControl Jogvision: Technical data sheet

 

Controls SERATO DJ Intro (available for download free of charge)
SERATO DJ Upgrade Ready (optional)

 

Two circular displays per deck
Blue ring: speed and scratch indicator
White ring: position indicator
Perfect for scratching: the display indicates either the current scratch positon, or the scratch amplitude (to return to the starting point)

 

Displays emulating the rotation of a motorized platter
The blue ring rotates at 33
RPM
As on professional DJ CD players, the blue ring’s rotation speed changes when the DJ alters the pitch
Incorporating a circuit of LEDs, the display provides faster performance than an LCD, which is limited by its refresh rate

 

Solidly-built, comfortable DJ controller
Large 5.9" / 15 cm jog wheels featuring touch detection
Sturdy 17.9 x 10.0" / 45.5 x 25.4 cm body
2 sets of 4 progressive pads illuminated with 4 different lighting colors (each color indicates a control type)
AIR Control for contactless control of the low-pass filter effect: the audience sees the DJ’s hand movements, thanks to the AIR Control’s 11.8" / 30 cm range

 

Audio design engineered for performance
24-bit/96 kHz resolution
Dual Master outputs (2 RCA + 1/8" stereo) and Booth output (2 RCA)
Headphones output
1/4" microphone input
1/8" stereo line input

DJs Karla Kenya and DJ Spawn will perform live and demo DJControl Jogvision with Serato DJ Intro for the first time ever at the Hercules Musikmesse booth. Don’t miss this exciting event and the opportunity to interact with these two DJs.

 

Hercules DJControl Jogvision. Perform. Scratch. It’s your turn.
