TRAKTOR DJ STUDIO IGNITE!
Attention all burgeoning DJs:
It’s likely that most of you are familiar with Native Instruments’ increasingly popular Traktor DJ Studio; and if you are a hobbyist or just getting started with this software then RD White’s step-by-step visual guide could very well give you the tutoring that you so desperately need.
Traktor DJ Studio isn’t a particularly difficult program to navigate and use; but there are a lot of options to choose from and the screen layout, while effective, can be a bit of a sensory overload for the uninitiated — thus this easy-to-read visual guide (which allots a corresponding photo to nearly every step you will take on your journey to controlling the club floors) is quite handy; not to mention idiot proof in its presentation.
At nearly 300 pages, the tutorial can appear quite daunting, but the design is actually fairly minimal and the information presented quite palatable. In fact, my only real complaint lies in the mediocre quality of the screenshots contained herein; as they would benefit from a 20 percent size increase and/or being taken at a higher resolution, but if you eat your carrots daily you should be able to make it through without too much squinting.
Those terrible beats and lopsided mix you are pumping out? Yeah, now you only have yourself to blame; but we are only too eager to steer you on the right path to producing great house/hip-hop/electronica/etc. Your increasingly terrible fashion sense? Well, that’s a fight you are going to have to win on your own.
