Numark 4TRAK - Updating Traktor 4TRAK Edition and FX Bar
The Numark 4TRAK is one of the best Traktor controllers on the market. This guide will help you update your Traktor 2 Numark Edition software from 2.1.3 to the current version giving you all of the latest Traktor 2 features. We will also walk through the steps required to fix any FX Bar LED issues you may be having.
Installing Numark 4TRAK Drivers
In order for the Numark 4TRAK to work properly on your computer you will first need to install the latest version of the hardware drivers. If you have previous drivers installed from a CD that was included with your 4TRAK, I recommend removing them and using the drivers below. Make sure that you remove drivers using the Driver Remover Tool that is included with the download below. This will ensure the outdated drivers are completely and properly removed.
- Download and Install the appropriate Windows or Mac driver below.
- Run the included Driver Remover Tool to uninstall any previous drivers.
- Run the Driver installer. Do not plugin the 4TRAK until prompted to do so.
- Once installed restart your computer to complete the installation.
Updating Traktor 2 4TRAK Edition
Some Numark 4TRAK users have reported that they are unable to update their software past v2.1.3. If this applies to you then follow the steps outlined below. If you are a Traktor Pro user, or you're not having difficulty updating to the latest version of Traktor through the Service Center you can skip to Fixing the FX Bar LED's section below.
- Download and Install the Traktor Pro 2 Demo. The Demo will install over the current version 2.1.3 while leaving your collection, and playlists intact. Don't worry you will not be limited to only demo features as you have already unlocked the 4TRAK Edition, and this will carry over to the updated version.
- Once the install completes run Traktor 2.
- When prompted choose Yes to import your collection, and settings from the previous version 2.1.3.
- It should also authorize the Traktor Pro 2 demo with your 4TRAK Edition Serial Number unlocking Traktor Numark 4TRAK Edition. If it doesn't do this automatically you may have to open the Service Center and enter the Traktor 4TRAK Edition Serial number to unlock the demo.
