Traktor Pro 2 vs Traktor LE 2 – DJ Software
Last updated 27 March, 84 To DJ successfully in bars, lounges or clubs using Traktor, you need to understand how it handles volume.
The way Traktor handles metering and the labels on its volume controls can lure you into making a real mess of your levels. When I first realised this on switching from CDJs and an analogue mixer to using Traktor and a sound card, it prompted me to take a deeper look into the best way to get the level right. The problem: You may have already run into this problem. As most dance tracks released these days are already heavily compressed, adding further compression is not a good idea if you want your set to sound good see the Loudness Wars video for more info on the effects of over-compression.
The solution: Driving into the red is a surefire way of degrading your sound quality. Leaving the master gain set to 0dB in Traktor is like turning every control on your mixer right up to maximum at the start of your set. Not a good idea. So why would Native Instruments choose to mark the gain control like this? Why use dB? Earlier I suggested dB as a good setting for your master. There are a couple of reasons why. If you play lots of older tracks you might find you need to use an even lower setting.
The second reason is related to the actual output voltage you are sending to the next thing in the audio chain. A clean 0dBV signal allows the guy running the system to crank it up to full volume without worrying about it being destroyed.
I use a Motu UltraLite sound card which has a maximum output around 17dBV, so in theory I should set my master output in Traktor to dB or lower in order to give a real output of 0dBV. In most cases though, digital DJs hook up their kit to one of the mixer inputs. Bringing the master level up in Traktor to dB with my set up gives a similar level on my mixer as I get with a CDJ.
Remember… The master volume, set to dB in Traktor. The key thing to take away here is that 0dB in Traktor really means maximum output.
Using a master setting of dB or even much lower will give you a fighting chance of keeping the levels kicking on the dancefloor without distorting. Do you have level problems when using Traktor to DJ out and about with? Have you battled with a sound engineer about how the settings should be? Let us know in the comments.
