With version 2, Conductr reveals itself as an environment that musicians and DJs alike can design according to their specific needs through modules for Ableton Live or Traktor. Every artist is unique, so their tools should be as well.
The Traktor module has been designed to provide DJs with a different kind of experience: one that makes sense on an iPad. For the people behind Conductr, it is not about mimicking hardware or desktop software on the iPad, but to offer a 100% mobile-oriented user experience for artists.
Some highlights of the new Traktor module:
- Up to 4 decks.
- Flexible interface: up to 4 slots for any deck you want to place (even duplicate them).
- Each deck features 3 different view modes:
- Deck player: Control track browsing, progress bar, loops, cues, sync, tempo and flux, plus bend and jog touchstrips
- Mixer: Control volume, 3 band EQs with kills, 2 filter modes (Lo and Hi pass), monitor your cues, key note control and gain adjust.
- Fx: Control single or grouped fx units, automatic display of all fx and parameters’ names and control types and create your own single or grouped fx presets.
Just as the Conductr controller for Ableton Live has continued to grow, and will continue to do so, with new modules like the 4 Dimensions-XY Pads and the Claydr MIDI Keyboard, the Traktor controller will progressively expand with new modules.
Conductr 2.0 will continue as a freemium app. Users may download a basic trial version for free and in-app purchase the modules they like.
