Why upgrade to TRAKTOR PRO 3.8? Here’s what’s new

why upgrade to TRAKTOR PRO

Almost two decades ago, we created the first DJ software to truly conquer the club. Since then, it’s filled sound systems and dance floors across the world, as well as house parties, bars, beaches, and everything in between.

Now, with the latest version of TRAKTOR PRO, we’ve built on that past to bring you new tools for sonic sculpting, our best sound quality ever, and our clearest interface to date—so you can play whatever you want, however you want, wherever you want. The latest version of TRAKTOR PRO includes some special updates for TRAKTOR Pro Plus, including customizable patterns and TRAKTOR KONTROL F1 factory mapping in the Pattern Player, five new artist kits, as well as continued improvements to stability and usability for TRAKTOR PRO. Read on for further details.

What’s new?

Unlock your features via the “Subscriptions” tab in Native Access. To keep your DJ sets sounding fresh, we’ll keep adding new cutting-edge tools and effects to TRAKTOR PRO Plus.



Customizable factory patterns in TRAKTOR PRO Plus

With the Pattern Player, you can use built-in sound packs to create custom percussion loops to complement DJ sets, all mappable to your setup and hardware. Now you can customize your sets even further with the ability to customize factory patterns by enabling or disabling individual steps of the pre-programmed patterns.
