Native Instruments’ TRAKTOR PRO 3 DJ software is now compatible with the USB - HID control feature of our XDJ-1000MK2 and XDJ-700 multi players. 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.
You can use the XDJ-1000MK2/XDJ-700 to intuitively control TRAKTOR PRO 3 including scratching and tempo adjustment. 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 3.3.0) for free to use USB-HID control with the XDJ-1000MK2/XDJ-700. You’ll also need to update your firmware for the XDJ-1000MK2 to ver. 1.42, and for the XDJ-700 to ver. 1.13 if you haven’t already.
Simply plug your PC/Mac into the XDJ-1000MK2/XDJ-700 and control TRAKTOR PRO 3. Intuitively scratch and use performance features including loops, tempo adjustment, and play/cue, which are all linked to the software.
You’ll see text information, artwork images and waveform (XDJ-1000MK2 only) from your tracks in TRAKTOR PRO 3 displayed on the XDJ’s high-resolution screen, so you can quickly find and select tracks by using the rotary selector on the deck.
Thanks to the XDJ’s built-in sound card, you can use it to output audio signals from TRAKTOR PRO 3 without the need for an external audio interface.
