Traktor FS Brings Final Scratch to Mac OS X

Traktor DJ Studio 2.0 also gets update By Dave Nagel
Native Instruments and Stanton have released Traktor Final Scratch, a merger between STanton's FInal Scratch and Native's Traktor DJ Studio. Native has also released a minor update to Traktor DJ Studio.

Traktor FS is a software system for Final Scratch 1.1 that's designed to provide DJs with vinyl-style techniques for digital files. Final Scratch is a hardware interface for real-time manipulation of digital audio files with techniques like pitching, cueing, spinning and needle dropping. Traktor FS brings this interface to Mac OS X and offers an enhanced database search function, pre-listening of tracks on a third output, full drag and drop support and a structured, tree-like view of the musical archive. The Traktor FS software is designed exclusively for the FInal Scratch hardware.

Native has also released an update to its related Traktor DJ Studio software. Traktor DJ Studio is a standalone program that allows independent DJ mixing without the need for turntables or an external mixer. It offers offers additional features like automatic beat sync, precise loop and cue points, filters, mixfile recording and other features. The new version 2.03 features improved performance and some new features, including multiple CD drive support, the ability to store BPM values and other database text fields directly in the ID3v2 tag, as well as other enhancements. The software is available free for users of Traktor DJ Studio 2.x. It supports Mac OS 9, Mac OS X and Windows.
