TRAKTOR supports the following audio formats:
- WAV 1
- Audio CD
- Ogg Vorbis
- AAC (On Windows, AAC playback requires Apple Quicktime to be installed on the computer.)
Note for Windows 7 / 8 users: TRAKTOR versions 2.7.0 or higher are unable to play back Apple Lossless (ALAC) files. Read this article for more information.
1WAV files in 24-/32-bit resolution downloaded via Bandcamp may not load instantly and require quick supplementary treatment. Simply opening the respective file with the freeware Audacity and then shutting down the application without any further action resolves the issue.
DRM-protected files are not supported. Currently all iTunes purchases are free of DRM-protection but note that other vendors may apply DMR-protection to their files. Read this article from the Apple Support pages for more information.
Note: TRAKTOR does not support any music streaming services such as Spotify or Apple Music.
