Traktor Bible, Second Edition, is sold out.
The Second Edition of Traktor Bible is based on Traktor 1.2 and higher.
The Traktor Bible is the practically oriented compendium covering all aspects of digital DJing with Traktor Pro, Traktor Scratch Pro, Traktor Duo and Traktor Scratch Duo. The book provides answers to questions that Traktor newbies are faced with and it also covers features that experienced users may struggle with. The selection and the weighting of the topics were strongly influenced by research in the Traktor user forum on the Native Instruments website. This was to make sure that the issues that prey large on the minds of Traktor users are covered in detail and that useful solutions can be provided.
The Traktor Bible uses a more practically oriented approach than the official Traktor documentation. In the Traktor Bible all information regarding one topic is brought together in one chapter and things are explained from a practical point of view. This includes documenting the MIDI commands that are needed for automating the workflow.
For example, the chapter covering cue points and loops describes how cue points and loops are set and stored in the Traktor user interface. Additionally, the same chapter contains all information about the MIDI commands of the presented features. This approach makes it very easy to map the necessary functions to the keyboard or a MIDI
and HID controller.
Several chapters contain tutorials with step-by-step explanations of the more complicated Traktor features. Many "HOW TO-Sections" show how
things are done in the Traktor user interface, and how they can be implemented via MIDI mapping.
