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 also integrates with the TRAKTOR AUDIO 2, TRAKTOR KONTROL Z1,TRAKTOR KONTROL S2 Mk2 and S4 Mk2.
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
Development stopped. Still not feature complete.
Development on the app has stopped. No updates for an entire year as of this writing and features are still missing.
Traktor on the iPad has been my main dj platform since it launched. There are some things needed to make version 2 of this product on par with version 1. Mainly, we need to be able to compile playlists inside the app and transfer metadata such as cue points to other devices. These items should be a priority.
Also worth mentioning that the Traktor Audio 2 interface is not fully supported as their marketing claims. Only one channel works, making it useless for split cue output. You will be forced to buy an expensive controller for that functionality. Thankfully I already had a Z1.
My favorite DJ app
I actually like this better than Traktor on a laptop. Dead simple to use. Great with a controller like the Kontrol S2. My only complaint is the effects. They’re kind of horrible and basic if I’m being honest. Wish I could load some of the really good AUv3 effects I have in their place. Still.... very cool DJ app.
Edit: Going to take one star because the only way to get tracks into this is thru the Music. Files support would be ideal.
I’ve been a long term Traktor Pro user and started using the original Traktor DJ app when it first came out. Test drove version 2 as well but abandoned immediately when I couldn’t do basic things like adjusting beat grids.
Color me pleasantly surprised when I took a look and saw all the updates!
I’ll make apple give it 6 stars if I can once again set cue points and hot cues and that carries over to the desktop version of Traktor DJ 2! The moment that happens I’ll be looking at buying the new S4 hardware to replace my ancient Denon SC3700 decks. Salutes NI, salutes developers.... you guys are making Traktor dope again!
