    Default Think Traktor will ever support special characters?

    I know that TRAP music has becoming increasingly popular over the past year and I have been seeing quite a few producers using special characters in there names.

    I know tractor recognizes a few, like the ∆ (option-j) but I was curious if you know of a way or if anyone knows if tractor will ever consider supporting these characters in the software.

    in iTunes I like to keep my music collection as organized as possible and when it comes to keeping the artists and track names correct i like to keep them as close to what the original artist intended. grated it makes searching a bitch but if you know where its at, its easily browsed to.

    for instance, producers like HU₵₵I and even FKi and Flosstradamus use it, FKi ✖ Flosstradamus. but it just comes up blank in Traktor and sometimes with a ? (the ? is used more in iTunes). Then there is artists like ƱZ who just have ridiculous track names, that almost always needs changed to even be able to understand what it says.

    just curious, not sure anyone else on here just renames them (UZ, HUCCI) or if they keep the intended symbols?

    I'd seriously question my taste in music if special characters were so much of an issue for me.
