In the third and final installment of this video tutorial series, we bring to a close our exploration of Native Instruments Traktor DJ for iPad. Within the video, Dubspot instructor Mike Henderson (a.k.a. Endo) sheds light on one particularly powerful new feature you’ll find within both Traktor DJ and Traktor Pro 2.6.1: Metadata Sync. This powerful function enables the automatic synchronization of metadata across your entire track collection; including tempo, cue points, loops, key information, etc – a massive timesaver for all of you iOS-based Traktor DJs! Just in case you missed the previous tutorials within this series, check out what’s on offer within parts one and two.
The ability to sync your Traktor track collection with your main Traktor computer via Dropbox is one of my favorite features in Traktor Pro 2.6.1, sharing track info including cue points, beatgrids and BPM/key information. This opens up the possibility of doing a lot of the prep work for a performance (beatgridding tracks, setting cue points, etc.) on the iPad’s inviting touchscreen and then syncing your work with your main computer before the gig. Head over here to read my full overview of Traktor DJ. – Endo

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

“I love the class, and the content! Shiftee and Endo are very funny, and very clear, so the material is easy and fun to follow! I wish my college teachers were more like these two!” – Leandro Martinez, Chicago IL
