In today’s episode, we talk about all the recent news in the DJ software space… including the latest release of Traktor Pro 3! The new Traktor brings several new features to the table, including the new “Mixer FX” which are one-knob effects similar to the Pioneer “Color FX” system. There’s also a redesigned UI, improved time-stretching algorithms, and included DVS (timecode) support without the need for a separate “Traktor Scratch” license.

We also talk about SoundCloud, and it’s coming integration with several pieces of DJ software including Traktor, Virtual DJ, and Serato. Serato is also getting access to music service Tidal. We also talk about a new Mixed in Key release, the issues with upgrading to Mac OS Mojave, and the story of how Proton is bringing DJ mixes to Spotify.

We wrap the episode with an edited-down version of David’s Traktor “unboxing” video, where he tests it for the first time and records his results.
