so as i understand, TRAKTOR is best to use for dance music (house, dnb,
dubstep) ?? and serato for hip-hop ? or does it actually make no difference
at all ?

Gabriel Dobre says:

Who in the hell uses 4 decks? :D

Sheg Nasa says:

hi Paul thanks for the tutorial. i do have more questions for an advanced
traktor user.
i am new to traktor. my intentions were to dj hip hop. was traktor a bad
choice considering the sync features? that can reall fuck with hip hop.
being very vocal…. also how do i load tracks to decks with out physically
dragging it into the deck? cant i just find a song and hit a load

Stephen Chen says:

does anyone know how to get a 2 deck setup?
i can’t get rid of C & D

joeyheadset says:

Thanks for this. It’s really helpful.

Brooks Duvall says:

Thanks for the clip, very informative.

Casey McConnen says:

wtf towards the end when he starts using 4 decks, that third one keeps
going out of time…. but he doesn’t even address it he just keeps fixing
it. How do I get that to not happen?

DJ Shuffle says:

Great tutorial. I’m just wandering: When I DJ I like to use my Launchpad
with my decks so I can add the odd fill or play samples. Can I store
samples and play them from Traktor or would I need to have Ableton Live
open at the same time? Because at the moment I’m using Mixxx for my mixing
and scratching whilst having Ableton Live open for my Launchpad and because
I have both of these programs open simultaneously the Launchpad crashes and
Mixxx freezes most of the time. 

Goust says:

Can someone help me?
Dragging these orange lines to time it doesnt really work because they are
moving all the time. :o

time with the s4?

Jonnybarbs says:

best tutorial I’ve ever seen, well spoken.

Echo Tech says:

Nice tutorial thumbs up ! love the songs that you`ve chosen ^^

Robert Hamann says:

I recently downloaded Traktor but when I drag in a mp3 file it sits in the
deck and when I play it, the music doesn’t play. It says that I’m not using
the right driver. I want it going out my speaking but there is no option.
When I change my driver to the realtek digital output, the mixer says that
the music is coming out but I hear anything. Please Help.

Who read Paul Walker?

Damien Margo says:

Traktor demo is working with my Korg padKONTROL after I forced Korg driver
to “both” mode (32-bit AND 64-bit), and selected General MIDI. Thanks for
this Paul, now I’m getting a better idea what features are important to me,
for assigning to the padKONTROL. Also using ASIO4ALL and got it all working
with headphone cue and no additional NI hardware. However, the Z1 looks
attractive. Cheers.

Alain Canizares says:
