Traktor Pro 2 is Out! DJ Craze on Native Instruments: Maschine + Kontrol X1

After the long wait (and lots of videos showing off the new features) Traktor 2 is finally in stores and we’ve got new media for the celebration. In this brand new Native Instruments promo video, 5x DMC World Champion DJ Craze performs a brilliant new turntablism routine utilizing NI’s next generation of Traktor Scratch DJ gear (with their patented Traktor 2 Technology), including the just released Traktor Scratch Pro 2 along with Maschine and Kontrol X1. Craze is nothing short of incredible here; effortlessly demonstrates the performance possibilities of Traktor Pro 2 gear by creating a live dubstep remix of Kanye West’s “Monster” blending it with  Flux Pavillion “Got 2 Know”.

When it comes to matching the latest technology with world-class turntablism skills to produce next-level routines, Miami’s DJ Craze is the ultimate choice.

In this video, the 5x DMC World Champion showcases the power of the new Traktor Scratch generation by creating a live dubstep remix, controlled by his golden Technics turntables and two controllers.

Kontrol X1 is used to play a live beat using one-shot drum samples in Traktor’s new Sample Decks, while Craze also triggers various other samples and cue points with his custom white Maschine controller. A beat juggling section in the middle leads to the finale where Craze combines fast cue-point juggles and vocal samples with the integrated Traktor effects.

Digital DJing w/ Traktor Pro 2 Program

Three levels / 12 sessions / 21 hours of hands-on instruction + labs

The definition of DJing has changed dramatically in the last decade. Laptops, controllers, and software have emerged alongside more traditional turntables and CDJ’s, smashing the barrier to entry. In today’s digital age, anyone can become a DJ.

Courses:

  • Digital DJing w/ Traktor Pro 2 Level 1: Introduction to DJing
  • Digital DJing w/ Traktor Pro 2 Level 2: Phrase Mixing
  • Digital DJing w/ Traktor Pro 2 Level 3: Beyond The Beatmatch

To reflect this renaissance, Dubspot has created the Digital DJing with Traktor program. In both our physical and online schools, students will learn how to DJ entirely with Traktor’s cutting-edge technology. An emphasis will be placed on the concepts of DJing rather than simply learning how to use the software. Starting with a historical overview, students will learn the fundamental concepts of the DJ via Traktor’s intuitive interface. They will then begin to delve into the vast array of new possibilities offered by this groundbreaking software, recording their work along the way. Students will leave with finished DJ mixes, a thorough introduction to DJing with Traktor, and a skill set and knowledge base perfect for further development.
