Native Instruments has announced its pro-DJ software solution for Mac OS X, called Traktor DJ Studio 2.0.
The software enables digital DJs to mix tracks in the same way traditional DJs do, Native Instruments claims. It integrates two playback modules for the playback and mixing of MP3s, Sound Designer files, AIFF files and audio CDs. Features include play lists, DJ mixers, a beat matcher, digital scratcher, cue section and filters.
The parametric control of the software makes it possible to record all control movements, and export a mix in a dedicated file format, the company claims.
Native Instruments CEO Daniel Haver said: "DJ mixing has become one of the most electrifying domains in the new music culture."
"Mac OS X offers highly-advanced audio technologies with unprecedented power and great stability, which gives users an outstanding platform for music creation and performance," he explained.
The application takes advantage of Mac OS X's Core Audio – this integrates all audio functions directly into the operating system. It offers audio latency speeds as fast as 1ms. Traktor DJ Studio 2.0 also harnesses Mac OS X's multiple processor and symmetric multiprocessing features. It ships in September for $199. No UK price is available yet.
