In short, despite some minor flaws, we’re big fans of Traktor DJ. While it inevitably feels light on features compared to Traktor Pro, it’s certainly the best equipped and most effectively implemented DJ app we’ve seen for the iPad so far.
It’s interesting that Native Instruments has branded Traktor DJ as a ‘Pro’ DJ app. Obviously, it’s very, very unlikely that we’re going to see any professional DJs playing out using just an iPad in the booth, but that’s not to say the app won’t be of major use for pro level DJs.
The DJs - be they pro level or amateur - who are going to get the most out of the app are those who already use Traktor regularly. Thanks to its Dropbox integration, as a sketchpad for coming up with mix ideas, prepping tracks or slicing up loops it’s absolutely brilliant. For those who currently use Traktor and own an iPad, at £13.99, it’s pretty much an essential purchase.
Aside from that, it’s likely to prove to be a great tool for house parties and could be a great entry-level tool for anyone wanting to dip a toe into the world of digital DJing. In all, it feels like a significant step forward for the concept of iPad DJing.
