Pioneer DJ NXS2 set-up now compatible with TRAKTOR – CDJ-2000NXS2 and DJM-900NXS2 now support TRAKTOR PRO 2 and TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO 2 including USB-HID control
Native Instruments’ TRAKTOR PRO 2 and TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO 2 DJ software is now compatible with the DVS feature of our flagship DJM-900NXS2 mixer, and the USB - HID control feature of our CDJ-2000NXS2 multi player. This comes under the Pioneer DJ Certification Program, an initiative to evaluate products from other companies and certify them as compatible with our DJ gear so you know you can use them together with confidence.
Simply connect the DJM-900NXS2 to your PC/Mac and you can instantly use TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO 2’s hands-on timecode control feature to control digital audio files on your computer using turntables (with the TRAKTOR SCRATCH control vinyl) or via the jog wheels on multi players (using timecode CDs). And set change overs are made easy, with two built in sound cards.
You can use the CDJ-2000NXS2 to intuitively control TRAKTOR PRO 2 including scratching and tempo adjustment without needing a timecode disc. The deck also displays track titles, artwork and other information from the software so you can quickly select your next track without looking at your computer.
Registered users can download the latest version of TRAKTOR (version 2.11.0) for free to use the DVS feature with the DJM-900NXS2, or to use USB-HID control with the CDJ2000NXS2. You’ll also need to update your firmware for the CDJ-2000NXS2 to Ver.1.50, and for the DJM-900NXS2 to Ver.1.20 if you haven’t already.
