Known Issues and Important Notes ================================================================== - The Traktor 3.0.1 update came with a new set of default layouts. These do not overwrite your layouts by default but have to be manually loaded. Proceed as follows if you want to use the new set of layouts instead your current ones (be aware that this operation will reset all your personal preferences settings as well): 1. Quit Traktor DJ Studio 3 2. In your "Traktor3" folder, rename the current settings file "Traktor DJ Studio 3 Settings.xml" as "Traktor DJ Studio 3 Settings.old" 3. Make a copy of the file: "Traktor DJ Studio 3.0.1 Settings.xml" and rename it as: "Traktor DJ Studio 3 Settings.xml" 4. Restart Traktor DJ Studio 3. - Running the Beatport Online Store on Flash 8 may require lowering of the default security settings. This can be done as follows: 1. Right-/ ctrl-click anywhere on the Beatport shop. 2. Choose "Settings" from the menu. 3. In the Flash Player settings choose "Advanced" button 4. This opens the Macromedia Settings Manager 5. Click on "Global Security Settings Panel" 6. Wait for the Flash-Panel to load and select "Always Allow" - Switching back and forth to fullscreen mode in combination with the Beatport Shop can cause redraw errors. - Hotkeys: in case of problems with hot keys (mostly when using a non US version of Mac OS X), the keyboard layout has to be changed to "American" layout before launching Traktor DJ Studio 3. "On-the-fly" switching of the keyboard layout (multiple language input sources) is not sufficient. ================================================================== 4.

To change settings in the ScratchAmp control panel, open the control panel from the Start Menu or directly from the folder Programs > Stanton. - When upgrading from Traktor DJ Studio 2.x to Traktor 3 you should use the function "Import Collection" found in the context menu of the Collection icon. - Hotkey and MIDI-presets from former versions are not compatible to Traktor DJ Studio 3. The version installs with a new default suited for 4 deck use. The installer provides 2 additional .tks files, one similar to the former preset of Traktor DJ Studio 2.6 and one similar to the former preset of Traktor FS2. - FS2: Please use the FS2 Details panel to calibrate the decks.
