Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S2 MK2 - 2-Channel Controller
The Traktor Kontrol S2 MKII DJ Controller is a hardware and software solution designed to provide all the tools a modern DJ requires. It's a two-deck hardware controller with touch-sensitive platters for spinning and scratch simulation. Based on the hugely popular S4 controller, it has a complete mixer section, sample and remix decks, and digital effects via the included Traktor Pro 2 software. Powered by USB, and equipped with a professional-quality 96 kHz/24-bit sound card, the Native Instuments Traktor Kontrol S2 MKII is all you need to start DJing from your Mac or PC.
What's New? Traktor Kontrol S2 MKII vs. Traktor Kontrol S2
This next-generation S2 MKII upgrades the original S2 with a two-tone design and improved fader reliability. You'll see new aircraft-grade aluminum jog wheels, made heavier to reduce wear on the magnetic braking system found in the original S2. The S2 MK's controls reflect the updates in Traktor software, with four brighter, backlit color-coded buttons, and a Flux mode button for each deck. Plus, the MKII release is compatible with the Traktor DJ iPad/iPhone app. You'll even find that the S2 MKII's rear outputs deliver hotter levels and a higher dynamic range. Basically, Native Instruments has taken an industry-favorite controller, and made it even more "pro" with the MKII release.
Hands-on DJ Experience
Native Instruments Traktor series of DJ controllers is all about delivering professional DJ tools in a user-friendly, hands-on way. The S2 is an ergonomic DJ controller designed to simulate the tools of the trade: two turntables and a mixer. Just plug the S2 into your laptop and you'll immediately transform your MP3s into your setlist. The S2's professional layout provides everything you need to browse, cue, play, loop, and mix your MP3 collection (or WAV, or AIFF, or many more digital audio file formats) all right from the hardware controller. Traktor's powerful BPM detection function makes it easy to seamlessly mix between tracks, and the effects and sample library will surely come in handy as you remix your favorite tunes.
Traktor Software Included -- Plus Powerful Upgrades
The provided Traktor Pro 2 software includes a free upgrade to version 2.6 which unlocks a host of powerful music production tools. For starters, you'll get 1.6 GB of samples and Remix Deck content available immediately. You can also capture your own samples as you go, so you're sure to have loads of go-to set material in no time. You can also add Traktor expansion packs or your own sample packs with quick and easy integration into the Traktor software and hardware.
Perfect Integration with NI's Add-On Hardware Controllers
While the S2 is one boss DJ controller that provides everything a DJ needs to start spinning tunes, when you're ready to add some serious firepower, you can expend your DJ setup with other tools in the Traktor Kontrol family. Add a Traktor Kontrol F1 for improved hardware access to Traktor's powerful Remix Decks, or add a Traktor Kontrol X1 for better loop and effect control. You can connect directly to a Traktor Kontrol Z1 or Z2 for an upgraded hardware mixer section. Traktor Pro version 2.6 also supports integration with Pioneer CDJs and Nexus mixers, so it's easy to quickly plug your DJ gear into any professional DJ setup.
