October 18, 2016 by Mobile Beat

Torrance, CA (October 13, 2016): Native Instruments’ TRAKTOR PRO 2 and TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO2 DJ software is now compatible with the DVS feature of our flagship DJM-900NXS2 mixer, and the USB-HID control feature of our CDJ-2000NXS2 multi player. This comes under the Pioneer DJ Certification Program, an initiative to evaluate products from other companies and certify compatibility with Pioneer DJ gear, ensuring confidence that products can be used together.


Simply connect the DJM-900NXS2 to your PC/Mac and you can instantly use TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO 2’s hands-on timecode control feature to control digital audio files on your computer using turntables (with the TRAKTOR SCRATCH control vinyl) or via the jog wheels on multi players (using timecode CDs). And set changeovers are easy thanks to two built-in sound cards.


You can use the CDJ-2000NXS2 to intuitively control TRAKTOR PRO 2 including scratching and tempo adjustment without needing a timecode disc. The deck also displays track titles, artwork and other information from the software so you can quickly select your next track without looking at your computer.


Registered users can download the latest version of TRAKTOR (version 2.11.0) for free to use the DVS feature with the DJM-900NXS2, or to use USB-HID control with the CDJ2000NXS2. You’ll also need to update your firmware for the CDJ-2000NXS2 to Ver.1.50, and for the DJM-900NXS2 toVer.1.20 if you haven’t already.





  1. Intuitive DVS and scratch control 

Plug your PC/Mac into the DJM-900NXS2 and use the TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO 2 control media (control vinyl or CDs) to intuitively control and scratch with digital audio files stored on your computer. If you’re using a CDJ-2000NXS2, you don’t need a timecode disc.



  1. Seamless DJ changeovers

Taking over from the DJ before you and handing over to someone else at the end of your set is seamless thanks to the DJM-900NXS2’s dual built-in sound cards. Two top-loaded USB ports and input selector switches let you and another DJ connect your computers to the mixer at the same time, so there’s no complicated connection process.



  1. Use the DJM-900NXS2 as an audio output device for TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO 2

Thanks to the DJM-900NXS2’s built-in sound cards, you can output audio signals from TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO 2 without needing an external audio interface. The USB sound cards enable 96 kHz/24-bit high-quality sample processing and you can input/output each audio signal and maintain sound quality just by connecting the mixer to your PC/Mac. Use the settings on your computer to configure the audio routing from the mixer to your preferred mode, such as DJ performance, track recording or track creation.





  1. Intuitive control 

Simply plug your PC/Mac into the CDJ-2000NXS2 and control TRAKTOR PRO 2 without the need for a control disc. Intuitively scratch and use performance features including loops, tempo adjustment, and play/cue, which are all linked to the software.
