While we’ve written about the feature set of this new version previously, the final official list has come out – see below.
As always, you can download the update to version 2.6 of Traktor immediately in your Service Center application – although we have heard reports that not everyone is able to see it yet, it will most likely be rolled out completely in the next few hours.
