Native Instruments have announced Traktor Pro 3.1, adding parallel waveforms, as leaked at this year's NAMM show in California. The new waveform views allow users to display track views and remix decks in parallel mode, making it easier to align peaks and troughs in the waveform of tracks and samples, similar to Serato and Pioneer DJ's rekordbox.
There's also a new single deck view for preparing your sets, making it easier to sort cue points, loops and make any beatgrid adjustments. NI have also added the ability to use the new Kontrol S4 MKIII as a standalone mixer via a firmware update. This allows users to use the S4 without a laptop, with the EQs and filter working with any audio source.
