      This page provides necessary information for DJM-850 as using a TRAKTOR SCRATCH 2 CERTIFIED MIXER.

      By connecting it to a computer with a single USB cable, the DJM-850 can be used in combination with TRAKTOR *1 to enjoy a wide range of DJ performances, including control of four decks (players) on TRAKTOR (the stereo signals of four sets of inputs and outputs can be input/output simultaneously) and input/output of sound using the DJM-850’s internal USB sound card. You can use the DJM-850 for the purpose of music recording and production since the internal USB sound card is based on ASIO/Core Audio standard.

      Furthermore, the DJM-850 is a certified mixer for TRAKTOR SCRATCH 2 *2, so with TRAKTOR SCRATCH 2 and a new timecode disc*3, it can be used with conventional analog players (turntables) or a DVS (Digital Vinyl System) allowing digital music files to be operated with a CDJ.

      If you do not own TRAKTOR, obtain the “TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO 2 CERTIFIED UPGRADE” upgrade kit for TRAKTOR SCRATCH 2 certified mixers. For details, see the Native Instruments’s upgrade website.

      • *1 A DJ software program by Native Instruments.
