The product name is "Traktor Pro 2" since years.

System Requirements listed on Native Instrument's official Traktor Pro 2 page states SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
Mac OS X *10.8*, 10.9 or 10.10 (latest update), Intel Core i5, 4 GB RAM

Macupdate, please fix this.

Users of with older hardware like the Core2Duo should take note that the i5 is required.

Interestingly Keir from NI claims that "OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion is no longer supported in TRAKTOR PRO 2.8.0. Users of OS X 10.8 may find high CPU load when loading Tracks into the Decks."
http://www.native-instruments.com/forum/threads/traktor-pro-2-8-now-online.256862/
So it will run, it just that NI can't be bothered are you to have problems. How reassuring.

I have tried various DJ apps, both before I got Traktor and after, but I keep coming back to Traktor (Pro 2, now) because of its features, flexibility and quality. Its auto beat matching means I don’t need a physical controller in order to DJ smoothly, although it supports a plethora of physical interfaces. The ability to remap the keys to my choosing means I can enable thing to my liking and disable show stopping features other DJ apps don’t allow: I love that I can disable stop/start on the space bar, and there’s a preference to lock playing decks from loading. Both of these prevent that sudden dead air scenario I have seen other DJs do when they accidentally cue the wrong deck or slip and hit the wrong button. I use Traktor with an Native Instruments AudioDJ4 external USB audio IO which has 4 in, 4 out. This is no longer sold, but Traktor sounds great through this and I can assign the inputs to go through the box in case inputs on the DJ board are not enough to accommodate all DJs input needs. I also like that it can read the iTunes library complete with playlists immensely. I think this is a great feature because I can use iTunes to find the tracks I want to play through casual listening between events and don’t have to do any thing tedious to remake a playlist or find tracks. This is one feature that keeps me coming back, because other DJ apps only read their own libraries, meaning you have to either work in them only or do double duty for making playlists. Traktor’s internal playlist edit and cue system is also very powerful. I have tried to make it crash with over 20,000 tracks, but it handled tat many just fine. (I have since rebuilt the library and have a modest thousand or so tracks in it that I draw from routinely.) Adding new tracks or playlists is as easy as importing from the finder or iTunes. Upon import, it reads the key tag for those of you DJs that have discovered harmonic mixing, so finding the net song isn't completely dependent on you memory. Of course it also calculates BPM at that time too, to enable easier beat matching. If it gets the track’s beat sync wrong, you can adjust the grid of each song, along with setting in/out, cue and loop points that it remembers in its own library. In practice that means it only takes one listen (often during or just before a DJ session) to practice and set this stuff up, then the next time you play any cue or loop points you have previously set are recalled the next time. One of the few complains is that if the USB audio interface is abruptly removed or the setting for the output quality is changed, the application or even the entire computer will crash, meaning a painfully slow reboot process. This might have been fixed within the past year, but it is something I never test anymore, and it as been over year since that happened (luckily this only has happened a few times while I was just practicing at home). The other complaint is that sometimes, if I sleep the computer, upon waking it up, Traktor will hang, necessitating a command-option-escape to force quit it. This hasn’t happened for a few versions so, I think the Native Instruments developers have solved the sleep issue at least. Overall I would recommend it to any Digital DJ since its flexibility means it can fit well in so many different types of DJ’s play styles.

I've been a user since the first beta early century. I now own Traktor Pro 2 and am very happy with the new stuff such as ability to change pitch independent of tempo to make harmonic mixing possible. I always tempo mix, not the autobeatmix stuff which destroys music IMHO. Sometimes I have to set a beat marker and after that the tracks mixes very nice for a long time with some manual adjustment and behaves very close to vinyl and CD. If you have that talent as I do it's no different. I love the filters and the possibility for different controllers. I'm using Ableton Push as a Controller, but looking at the external versatile mixer Z2 so I can mix vinyl seamless with digital and timecode disc control. The support for audio formats is great. I even play 24bit FLACs direct from artists hard disks, apple lossless, AIFF, AAC and the occasional WAV.It all works, even if it doesn't play in iTunes. I also own Live 9, but prefer Traktor for DJ'ing. It's so close to Vinyl andI love DJ'ing with vinyl. I use this in Mavericks on a Macbook Pro from 2007! It works so well!

Wow, this hasn't gotten a review in a while. I suppose having control externally would be a good thing to have... several versions ago. And anyone complaining about not being able to play iTunes songs, I hope you don't ever perform with iTunes purchased songs. Even iTunes Plus songs are nowhere near the right quality to perform with. iTunes songs sound like crap coming out of big speakers. It's a very good thing iTunes songs don't work.

@ person1229 I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "I suppose having control externally would be a good thing to have...", but since you seem to know what you are talking about, I assume that you mean that Native Instruments don't manufacture an external MIDI controller for Traktor. I've heard similar thoughts from other Traktor users and while I agree that this argument has some merit, I do not entirely agree. Why, you might ask? It's simple really. Traktor is a feature packed "beast" and as such, has a wide variety of users, where each one might use all or maybe just some features. For instance, as I always use an external mixer I have absolutely no need for an external controller with a mixer section (which would make the controller bulkier/heavier/more expensive). Other users use nothing but the internal mixer and wouldn't look twice at a controller without a mixer section. Meanwhile, other users rely heavily on scratching during their performances. I, on the other hand, only scratch when I have an itch somewhere ;-) I could go on and on with more examples but I'm sure you get my drift. I believe that building the perfect Traktor controller is an impossible task considering the wide user base and the different needs of the users and I completely understand NI for not offering one. (The only "universal" controllers, and I use that term very carefully, that I have seen is the Lemur - http://www.jazzmutant.com/lemur_overview.php, and the Mawzer - http://mawzer.com/. But the Lemur require a winning Lottery ticket and the Mawzer is still, after several years, vaporware. Sigh...) Presently, there are about a gazillion MIDI controllers on the market. Trust me, I have counted them ;-) Each one with it's strengths as well as it's flaws. You need to find one that is right for you and your needs. Personally, I still haven't found one that is exactly "right" for my needs so I muddle through with a combination of an external mixer, the keyboard of my laptop and an Oxygen8v2 MIDI keyboard.

Traktor can't play DRM audio files and all music bought from the iTunes store are DRM... (DOH!!!) There is a work-around though by first converting your DRM iTunes music to wav and then you can use this file or convert it to another format first.

Platform: OS10.3 on iBook G3 600 Running Traktor DJ Studio 2.6 Pros: 1/It's one of the few alternatives to PCDJ that runs on a Mac. Works reasonably well. 2/Plays AAC encoded songs 3/Looks cool Cons: 1/DOES NOR PLAY AAC encoded songs whith DRM: That means ANYTHING bought at iTunes Store (How LAME is that?) 2/I have not been able to upload iTunes playlists, although Traktor DJ Studio does "see" the playlists. 3/Tech support kinda useless for Macs. (They have been incapable of solving this issue.) 4/ Tempo adjust requires > 1GHz processor clock speed.

Hmm - perhaps these other macs are unstable. i have the program, yes you CAN integrate it with iTunes. Read the manual. It works perfect in both window mode and full-screen mode. very stable, never a problem with it. But then again, i wouldn't know what i'm talking about - i own my own DJ business and i've sound designed radio commercials, tv spots and web sites. It works fine with OSX
