TrakProDJ Traktor Controller – App Review – for iPad and iPad2

Control your Traktor DJ setup via iPad! This is a review for the Amazing TrakProDJ App for iPad by IXIMIX. I first had the opportunity to check this out after many attempts to find a good DJ controller for iPad. Touch OSC is good but lacks the sleek interface of a REAL DJ controller. This app is EXCLUSIVELY for Traktor Pro.

The Reality of it is that TrakProDJ has EVERYTHING you need to actually use Traktor in a fully functional way. Amazingly enough these guys nailed it on the head. The Jog Wheels are just about the size of a portable DJ controller. Some of the MAIN features this app includes:

  • Jog Wheels
  • Pitch Bend
  • FX Controls
  • Hot Cue Buttons
  • Track Browser
  • Full EQ Controls
  • Filter Control
  • Seek Position
  • Monitor Cue
  • Gain Knobs
  • Volume Controls

The app is extremely touch sensitive. If it wasn’t for the lack of actual feedback you would get from a normal DJ controller, this could potentially be used at Clubs and for local DJ events. The app easily connects via Core Midi to your mac and you MUST download a TSI file from the IXIMIX website to initially setup the controls in Traktor.

After importing the default settings I found there were a couple things I had to change to suit my likings. All in All the TrakProDJ is a GREAT addition to the DJ Controller iPad world. I am very pleased I had the opportunity to use this app and will continue to use it for a LONG time.This app is also available for iPhone and the iPod Touch.

      You must use the app with a computer. It needs to connect to mixer software to ox music.

      I’ve ran into this issue before. It can be fixed by manually editing the map within the settings. Check out the TrakProDJ website also for updated mapping.
