  • New and Changed in 1.2.1
    This update is an extended and re-worked version of the PDF I made available during the Public Beta Test phase for Traktor 1.2.
    This new version of the PDF is based on the relased Traktor versiopn 1.2.1. The PDF lists chapter by chapter what has changed from Traktor 1.1.2 to Traktor 1.2.
    If you haven't updated yet it is worth reading the PDF before you make the switch to 1.2.1.

    This PDF shows how Traktor calculates the target position for quantized jumps to hotcues.

    This update shows how to use the LED output features of Traktor. The PDF starts with a simple tutorial, explains the output-only MIDI commands, and shows how the settings for Controller Range and MIDI Range impact the output.
    LED output was not covered in Traktor Pro Bible. This update is an extract from Traktor Bible, Second Edition, where LED output is explained in chapter 6.
