and benefit of 2 new features of Traktor LE 2.81.

64-Bit Application Architecture (in Mac OS / Windows 64-bit)
Definition
: Traktor LE has now 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 Traktor Pro to manage of more items (larger Track Collections, better playback caching, etc.).

Parallel Audio Analysis (in offline mode, on multi-core processors as i3, i5, i7)
Definition
: The “Parallel Processing” mode lets Traktor Pro 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.

- Go to https://www.native-instruments.com/en/

Play a mix on a bluetooth speaker while previewing on wired headphones in Mac OS

Wired headphones are generally recommended for DJing since wired headphones have no latency, while most bluetooth headphones have a latency which can disturb the DeeJay operations.

Bluetooth speakers can be used in DJing to play the music for the audience : bluetooth latency is not disturbing for the audience.


Here is a process on Mac OS to use
- a bluetooth speaker for the audience,
- and wired headphones for the DeeJay preview.

1) Connect the bluetooth speaker to the Mac
Go in Preference > Bluetooth and pair the Bluetooth speaker


2) If your audio interface control panel has a menu to set the headphones on the channel 1-2, set the headphones channel on 1-2.


3) Go in Utilities and run Audio MIDI Setup


4) In the Audio MIDI Setup, go to Window Audio devices, and create an aggregate device in clicking on the + button on bottom left


5) In the Aggregate device, add
- first, the Bluetooth speaker
- second, your audio interface device.




6) Click on Configure Speakers (bottom right of the window) and set:
- Aggregate Device as Multichannel: Quadriphonic
- Front: channel 1 and 2
- Rear : channel 3 and 4


7) In your DJ software, in the sound setup, set:
- Sound Card: Aggregate Device
- Outputs
   Master: Channel 1&2
   Headphones:  Channel 3&4


You can now
- play your mix on the bluetooth speaker for the audience
- preview your mix in your headphones.

Remark: you can 
1) neither use the microphone connected to the audio interface, as the microphone input is not connected to the bluetooth speaker,
2) nor use the output 1-2 of your audio interface to play the mix on wired speakers: your master output is your bluetooth speaker, while the output 1-2 of your audio interface plays the preview.

Royalty-Free Music Sites

As many users of the forum look for royalty-free music tracks, hereafter are some sites distributing royalty free music tracks.

The way you can use royalty-free tracks is not always the same, but it is generally:
  • you can use the music for free in non commercial use if you grant the music creator the credit for the music according to Creative Commons license,
  • or you can buy the music once for commercial use,
  • and you can never resell this music.

It is called royalty-free not because it is always free, but because if you have to pay for it, you pay once, you don't have to pay for each use of the same track.
