Traktor Scratch MK II

Turntablists beware: Traktor is back with yet an improvement to their already top of the class Digital Vinyl System.

This time they’ve upped the quality and feel of the vinyl so it has got an even more authentic feel. A regular DJ (like myself) that does use scratch a lot probably won’t notice that much difference, because it is already pretty tight, but the really hardcore turntablists out there probably will notice a slightly better performance.
Alongside with the fact that they’ve solved the way that wow and flutter influence the sync functionality simply make Traktor Scratch Pro 2 a bit of a miracle for DJs using turntables.

I really liked the new layout of the sticker on the new MK 2 vinyl as well. Finally I don’t have to add markers to them. The sticker is a very nice indicator. Let’s hope the B side is just as good.

Qbert has been a part of the development of the new Traktor Pro 2 slipmats which I find to be pretty neat.

Also take a look at the video from Native Instruments that runs through the new features in Traktor Scratch Pro 2:
