Developed in close cooperation with partner company Beatport, the Traktor
Beatport Player is a versatile and easy-to-use audio player that can even
be used to tear up a party thanks to its set of basic DJ functions.
The Traktor Beatport Player is based on the award-winning TRAKTOR DJ
STUDIO and features two decks with waveform displays, pitch faders and a
crossfader. Powerful playlist features combined with a convenient music
library and browser make it suitable for all kinds of listening habits. A
wide range of compressed and uncompressed file formats is supported,
including MP3, AAC, WMA, WAV, AIFF, and FLAC, as well as audio CDs. The
Traktor Beatport Player can import iTunes playlists and collections, and
even supports full-featured playback of Traktor mix files, which use sets
of regular audio files to recreate full DJ performances recorded with
TRAKTOR DJ STUDIO.
"We strongly believe in Beatport as the most relevant and upfront platform
for purchasing club music on the internet." NATIVE INSTRUMENTS CEO Daniel
Haver says. "With the Traktor Beatport Player, we are making our Traktor
technology available to Beatport customers, and by that perfectly
complement the Beatport 2.0 experience. This is just the first step in our
close partnership with Beatport, and DJs all around the world can look
forward to many more exciting developments in the time to come."
The Traktor Beatport Player will be made available in November 2004
together with the launch of Beatport 2.0. The second generation of the
Beatport online music store will offer a host of new features created
specifically to better serve online dance music shoppers, including
improved navigation, increased user customization, and added support for
video files, ring tones, and DJ mix files.
