Native Instruments has released Traktor 3.4 and Traktor Scratch 1.3, updated versions of the company's DJ software. Free for all registered users, these updates add architectural improvements and enhanced time-code and MIDI control functionality.
Traktor 3.4 and Traktor Scratch 1.3 now feature full Unicode support, which allows for file names and tags in almost any international script and language. Both versions also offer hot-plugging, instant switching for audio interfaces, and WASAPI support for Windows Vista.
The updates also add increased tracking precision for scratching in Relative mode, a new "Tracking Alert" function that gives early warning for conditions such as worn-out needles, enhanced MIDI controller handling, and various detail optimizations and fixes.
