Berlin, September 21st, 2009 – Native Instruments recently released TRAKTOR PRO 1.2, a free software update for the latest generation of its digital DJ products including the DUO and LE versions. The update brings many improvements that make the latest TRAKTOR generation even more powerful and convenient, including extended performance effects, state-of-the-art keylock quality, advanced controller display support and more.

To give DJs even more possibilities for creative sound shaping, the comprehensive performance effects section of TRAKTOR PRO has been further expanded in version 1.2. The number of independent effect sections has been doubled from two to four, now allowing users to assign different multi-FX configurations to each of the four full-featured decks. The comprehensive list of effect types in TRAKTOR PRO has also been expanded further with the introduction of the new Formant Filter, Peak Filter and the powerful Beat Slicer.

Keylock quality has been improved once more in TRAKTOR PRO 1.2 with the addition of the latest Z-Plane Elastique timestretching technology. The new version also utilizes the advanced functions of the Pioneer CDJ-400 and Denon HC-4500 controller hardware including display support, and marks the first and only DJ software platform that offers user-customizable HID controller assignments.

Further improvements in version 1.2 include enhanced cue point handling, a new deck caching technology with reduced memory footprint, a wide range of further optimizations for the unparalleled MIDI control features of TRAKTOR, and much more. Most improvements of the 1.2 version are also included in the corresponding TRAKTOR SCRATCH DUO, TRAKTOR DUO and TRAKTOR LE updates.

The 1.2 update is now available as a free download for all owners of TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO and TRAKTOR PRO as well as the DUO and LE versions.
