Native Instruments has announced Traktor Kontrol S2, a DJ performance system that provides a “2+1? setup with sample decks, as well as comprehensive mixing and effect features, based on the included TRAKTOR PRO 2 software.
The KONTROL S2 is centered around a new compact controller hardware. It provides high-resolution jog wheels, combined with ergonomic controls for cueing, looping and effects. The integrated 24bit/96 kHz sound card, with dual stereo outputs, is based on the technology of the TRAKTOR audio interface range.
The two playback decks of the Traktor Kontrol S2 are complemented by the Sample Decks of the latest TRAKTOR PRO 2 software, which can add up to eight simultaneous one-shot samples or beat-synced loops to the mix. This effectively equips the KONTROL S2 system with a third channel that opens up a wide range of additional performance techniques.
Traktor Kontrol S2 also benefits from the same bi-directional software-hardware integration as the KONTROL S4, featuring plug & play configuration, dynamically backlit control elements and the high-resolution NHL protocol.
Traktor Kontrol S2 will be available in October for US $669.
