Native Instruments is launching a subscription version of their popular DJ software Traktor Pro. The new subs version, called Traktor Pro Plus, will cost $4.99 a month or $49 a year and give you access to the full version of Traktor, and some extra subs-only features like the inclusion of iZotope’s Ozone Maximiser, Traktor Pattern Player, which is essentially a sequencer for drum samples and three months of Beatport Streaming as part of an early subs deal. Pro Plus is only available to existing Pro license holders – you can’t access Plus unless you already own Traktor Pro.
Though you are not being forced to subscribe, NI says that subscribers “will receive 3-4 new features each year” that non-subscribers will not have access to. They also say they will release major ‘paid’ updates that consolidate these new features periodically, so non-subscribers will get access to them eventually.
The inclusion of iZotope’s Ozone Maximiser is an interesting move considering the founding of a consolidated umbrella company Soundwide earlier this year. It’s possible more tools from across the Soundwide family, which includes Brainworx, Plugin Alliance, iZotope and NI, could be added in the future.
