On Richard David James's SoundCloud account named "user18081971", he mentions the use of NI's Traktor on the comments: "also loads of you interested in the setup..running a few progs, Traktor/msp and eurorack modular..dont often use Traktor but its ok but pisses me off it doesn’t do multiple bpms per track, come on NI get with the ‘programme’ will put a modular grid config up to shut you all up :)"more
"Her setup is heavily centered around Traktor and the Kontrol X1s with a big emphasis on looping, 'By looping certain sections of the tracks, it allows me to have different sounds and more control to effect them,'" it says, in [this article](http://www.djtechtools.com/2015/04/15/artist-gear-setup-nicole-moudaber-2/).more

"I think it’s a complete difference. I’m very happy with the way [Traktor] works, and all the possibilities that you have. For me, I don’t think I could go back to playing with just CDs or vinyl. Maybe sometimes you have to be careful with Traktor that you still keep the musical elements in there, but I think it allows me to do so much more and take people to a different level," Joris says, in [this article](http://www.inthemix.com.au/features/49983/Joris_Voorn_Form_and_function?page=1).more
Quote from Interview: As you said in a previous interview, Ableton helps to make your sets one of a kind. How does it help you be different from other DJs/producers? Do you use it for every set? I just changed recently to Traktor. I learned a lot from playing sets with Ableton, it’s a great software but Traktor is the one i use, it sounds better and gives you more the feeling of a DJ and more flexible.

I'm not much of a DJ (I prefer buttons and knobs to turntables), but I much prefer Native Instruments Traktor over Ableton Live when it comes to performance software. With two-or-four-deck mixing capabilities, built-in samplers, and insane MIDI mapping capabilities (in some cases even more flexible than Live!), I can get Traktor working with as much or as little gear as I need, in any style of play I'd like.
Whether you're a seasoned DJ or a beginner to performing electronic music at all, Traktor was a HUGE help getting me out there and I submit that it will be the same for you.
Traktor Pro 2 is an amazing software for DJ-ing. It offers a ton of options and overall works pretty damn well. It is a bit hard to get used to when transitioning from other software such as Virtual DJ. But once you do, you're golden.
Sold my S2 to save up for the S5 or S8 (or whatever ends up being the newest thing on the market by the time I can get my finances together... LOL), so it's sitting around for now.
I love traktor.. for techno DJing and getting creative when mixing. working with 4 decks, building up special moments, etc.. this can't be beat.. Ableton great for DJing but not spontaneous
Not sure about anyone else, but I absolutely fell in love with Traktor recently after making a switch from Serato to Traktor. It is definitely more flexible with Traktor being able to use most (if not all) MIDI controllers with it, although some needs to be custom mapped, but it works. Serato is a bit less flexible with this, considering only certain equipment unlock the use of Serato and not being able to plug in any controller and just map it.
