Native Instruments today said it's getting ready to release Traktor FS 1.5, an update tot he company's live performance tool based on Traktor DJ Studio. The new version adds OS enhancements and a new key correction feature. It will be available in February.

Traktor FS is a system for DJs to use vinyl-style techniques in a digital environment. It combines Stanton's Final Scratch and Native's Traktor DJ Studio. Final Scratch is a hardware interface for real-time manipulation of digital audio files with techniques like pitching, cueing, spinning and needle dropping. Version 1.5 adds drivers for Mac OS X 10.3 and support for WIndows XP, as well as a new Key Correction function. Key Correction, carried over from Traktor DJ Studio, allows users to change the tempo of a track without affecting the key. It also gains minor interface enhancements.

Traktor FS 1.5 will be available in February. Those who purchased Final Scratch 1.1 after Jan. 1 can update for free. Otherwise, the update runs $49. For more information, visit
