IMPROVEMENTS AND NEW FEATURES

64-BIT APPLICATION ARCHITECTURE
TRAKTOR PRO 2 is now available in 64-bit. In 64-bit, TRAKTOR PRO 2 can access all the available RAM on computers with 64-bit operating systems, increasing performance by allowing more efficient management of items like larger track collections, better playback caching, etc.
Please note: A 32-bit version of TRAKTOR PRO 2 is included in the Windows installer in case you need to run TRAKTOR PRO 2 with hardware that uses 32-bit drivers.




“Finally we can make the most of the RAM installed on laptops – this should lead to a much smoother experience for all those with high end RAM packed laptops”

MULTI-PROCESSOR ENHANCEMENTS
TRAKTOR PRO 2’s audio threading model has been updated. Users of multi-processor computers who were experiencing degraded audio performance since TRAKTOR PRO 2.7.0 should no longer experience these issues.

AUTOMATIC DECK FLAVOR SWITCHING
TRAKTOR PRO now features fully automatic deck flavor switching for all users. Loading or dragging a track or Remix Set onto a deck will automatically choose the appropriate deck flavor according to file type.

To enable this, right-click on a track and choose ‘Analyze (Async)’ from the context menu to open the Analysis Window, then select the ‘Parallel Processing’ option.
