    Default Traktor Scratch Certified (What does it mean now)...

    ... and what does it take to get something "Certified"

    The reason I ask is, I really expected the 4trak to work with scratch. It's a stand alone mixer in its spare time, with phono amps and must have been developed pretty closely with NI, given that Numark have used HID for the jogs which I didn't think anyone else was allowed access to, apart from NI (s2/s4).

    Am I massively misinformed?

    Anyone else not happy about this?

    I'm guessing the reason it isn't Traktor certified is because it would cannibalise sales away from NI's own S4. There's only a few mixers that are Traktor certified and the S4 is the only certified controller (I think).

    Scratch certification is different than it was a few years ago. NI will never ever scratch certify another controller. And these days the only way a mixer has a chance at getting certified is to be made by pioneer.

    NI claims other mixers haven't gotten certified because they aren't expected to meet certain sales quotas which they have now... The only mixers that have been certified in the past couple years have been pioneer despite many others that fit the technical criteria- so it wouldn't surprise me if they had some sort of agreement where NI won't certify anything that competes with the 900 nexus or T1, but this is just speculation.

    Traktor knows what soundcard is connected and if it isn't on the list of approved soundcards the software disables timecode. This move only hurts paying customers like us since anyone can download a pirated hacked version of traktor scratch pro 2 that lets you use any soundcard you like- which is pretty irritating really knowing I don't get that freedom as a paying customer and we have to deal with NI's certification politics.
