NI Teases us with New Software and Sound Cards

NI Teases us with New Software and Sound Cards:re-blog from DJTechtools

This brand new video is the latest installment in NI’s teaser campaign. It shows off some upcoming products, namely a new Traktor Software and some mysterious hardware but does not reveal what they actually are. Continue reading for some close ups.


The S4 software has been out for months now but the features it contains have been on lock-down, available only to those purchasing the S4 controller. From the video you can see that those features will now be available in a new version of Traktor- most likely called Pro 2. It looks to contain:

  • colored waveforms
  • sample player
  • loop player
  • loop recorder
  • and probably more from the s4 software

Inside scoop: NI has told us that the X1’s used in the video are running a special mapping that allows control over the sample and loop decks in the new software. As far as release date, pricing and other information that you actaully want to know- mums the word!


There is again a precedent here. NI always discontinues products or puts them on sale a few months before a new announcement. Remember the audio 4/8 fire sale? Well, its looking like there will be some new dj audio hardware hitting shelves some time soon. Even though they wont be exhibiting this year, I would expect an announcement about the sound cards later this week at NAMM.


A full team of will be heading to NAMM 2011 this week to bring you all the news. A first report will be published thursday and then we will follow that up with our full annual report on Monday.
