Today Native Instruments rolled out the latest update to their flagship DJ software Traktor Pro 2. The biggest new addition is the ability to map the Remix Deck controls that were previously only available to Kontrol F1 users. Other features include deck header tweaks, timecode optimization, and support for Native Instruments’ new Kontrol Z2 controller. With the ability to map more of Traktor’s Remix Deck controls, I expect to see a flurry of custom MIDI mappings for various controllers coming soon.


  • Integration of TRAKTOR KONTROL Z1
  • Overall performance and stability improvements


  • Fixed text input for Japanese characters (Windows)


  • Added controls for direct mapping of Remix Deck cells
  • Added controls for advanced Remix Deck features: Reverse, Quantize, Cell Load, Cell Delete and Cell Capture
  • “Invert” option now properly available for all control types


  • Timecode and deck related warning messages are now prominently displayed in the Deck Header
  • Added Flux Mode button to the Transport Section


  • Removed Mixer Headroom setting for External Mixer mode
  • Headroom setting of TRAKTOR KONTROL Z2 no longer affects other devices


  • Improved timecode reliability when using Hot Cues (all media)
  • Improved resistance against record damage (Vinyl MK2)
  • Improved tracking alert warning (Vinyl MK2)
  • High Input warning (CD all)
  • Scroll-Zone unresponsiveness fixed (CD MK2)
