Why upgrade to Traktor Pro 3.11?
Here’s what’s new

why upgrade to TRAKTOR PRO

More than 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 made improvements to the Traktor X1 MK3 workflow, including new easy customization options, full browser view options, and more.

For all Traktor Pro 3 users, we’ve added hot cue nudge control as well as fixed the last remaining setup issues on macOS Sonoma, improved stability, and lowered the CPU load of the master limiter. See below for more details.

1. New overmapping option for Traktor X1 MK3

We’ve added new mapping features to all of the buttons and knobs on the Traktor X1 MK3. Every button and knob, along with the corresponding shift layer, can now be assigned to any of the mappable Traktor functions in the Control Manager.

2. X1 MK3 full browser view options

Want to see more tracks at once? We’ve added an option to view the full browser when either turning the Browse encoder or when shift-pressing it. “Full Browser View” is a mode that expands the browser section to occupy the entire screen, providing a larger and more comprehensive view of your music collection.

3. Nudge control options for buttons 1-4

It’s simpler than ever to adjust the tempo of your track with new BPM nudge control options on buttons 1-4 as well as their shift layers. This increases your flexibility, allowing you to customize your control layout to better suit your individual workflow preferences.

4. New hotcue 5-6 options for Nudge Buttons

It’s now possible to also map hotcues 5 and 6 to the Nudge Buttons for even more first layer hotcue control, enabling you to smoothly access defining moments within each track.

The X1 MK3 effect displays now show the selected pattern graphics when scrolling through the list of available patterns. This quick visual reference can be particularly helpful when selecting patterns during live performances, making it easier to identify and navigate to the desired pattern without having to load it onto a deck first for a full preview.

6. Hotcue nudge control with mappable buttons

The hotcue that you select can now be nudged left and right with a pair of mappable buttons. Hotcue nudge controls allow you to make fine adjustments to the position of a Hotcue point within a track, ensuring that you can precisely select the exact moment you’re looking to use.
