Whether it’s a few friends at a house party, or a few thousand in a warehouse, we want to make mixing tunes and playing sets something everybody can do. TRAKTOR DJ 2 is a DJ app without barriers; it’s free, SoundCloud Go+ integration means you have access to an endless track collection, and TRAKTOR’s song recommendations help you choose which one to play next.
STAY IN SYNC
Throw on a couple of tracks, and TRAKTOR DJ 2 keeps them on-time and in-tune. Because everything’s on-beat, you’ll have plenty of time to start mixing things up.
From chart toppers and guilty pleasures, to underground edits and bootleg bangers, SoundCloud GO+ integration means TRAKTOR DJ 2 packs a record bag that’s got it all. All your likes and playlists are available right in the app – just drag and drop any track you want into a deck and spin away.
SHAPE YOUR SOUND
Adjust the sound of your mix with EQs and a filter on each channel – this means you can cut the bass of one track, for example, and blend in only the vocals and higher frequencies for a smooth and creative mix. Effects let you manipulate your sound and twist up your tracks when things start getting groovy.
FREEZE MODE: REAL-TIME REMIXING
Hit the snowflake icon on TRAKTOR DJ 2 for iPad to freeze the waveform. The track will carry on playing, but you can tap directly onto the frozen section to play it like an instrument. It’s great for chopping up vocals, or for dissecting interesting drum beats to make them your own.
MADE FOR TRAKTOR KONTROL S2
TRAKTOR KONTROL S2 MK3 is our take-anywhere DJ controller. It’s made for TRAKTOR DJ 2, so you can plug and play straight away. TRAKTOR DJ 2 is also fully integrated with the TRAKTOR AUDIO 2 and TRAKTOR KONTROL Z1.
SYNC: Hit play, and TRAKTOR gets your tunes in sync.
MATCH: Get recommendations on what track to play next, based on what’s playing.
HOTCUES: A bit like bookmarks in a track – jump to breaks, vocal sections, or drops for live re-edits.
FREEZE MODE: Instantly slice a track into one-beat segments, and play them like an instrument.
FLUX MODE: Flux Mode means that the track’s relative position is never lost when mixing things up, so you’re always back on-groove after scratching or backspinning.
NUDGE TO BEATMATCH: Use the jog wheels, or nudge and stall the beat to beatmatch manually.
QUEUE LIST: Add tracks to a dynamic playlist that’s always at hand to plan your set on the fly.

Ratings and Reviews
You’re KILLING me
As far as I can tell, this seems to be a rehash of the original interface/app released a few years back. There’s some good and some bad with that;
Loving the updated colors to mirror TP3 on the Mac/PC. Same great audio engine.
Unfortunately, there’s STILL a lack of beat jump? Unless you have it buried somewhere, like how un-intuitively buried the FXs are. This is a HUGE reason I use Traktor on my laptop and I’m pretty sure NI was the first to come out with that functionality. I get wanting to include “platters” for those turntablists out there but what about those who like having dedicated ability to jump around on the fly without needing to set a loop or cue points?
I’ve been using your products since the days of using my PowerBook G4 12” next to my Technics in the clubs. Hell, I’ll gladly pay for that feature since it has been a staple of my mixing workflow.
Without beat jump, I’ll remain on Algoriddim since even their free version allows varied length jumps AND everything else in here.
A good start, lacks settings and key features
Compared to original, this is a distant second. This could be good for “everyone” with its ease of use, more advanced users will feel left out. While EQs are nice and Nudging is very nice, I would like to see 1-touch kills, more effects and better control of the effects. Sync seems not completely functional as I was unable to reset to original BPM once synced to another track without reloading the track (I didn’t see a jog for BPM either). I would like to see customization options like cross fader cut off, or layout.
Not worth it if you need a new controller
I bought the Traktor S4 Mk2 specifically to use with Traktor DJ. Now Traktor DJ app doesn’t support my controller.
The app seems to function very well in terms of speed and Beatmatching etc. but without being able to use my S4MK2 I’m afraid its not worth it. It’s a shame because I really love my S4 but If I need to get a new controller I’m forced to look at something that’s compatible with Algoriddim, especially since Algoriddim has really put a lot into their iPad Pro functionality.
Added note: The Apple Pencil only works with certain functions on this app so whereas I could open and cue new tracks on the old app with an Apple Pencil, this does not work with Traktor DJ 2.
Nice effort but I’m afraid I have to give the app a thumbs down.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
