    Lightweight, compact, pro DJ controller with 24-bit/96kHz interface and powerful software package.

    Native Instruments TRAKTOR KONTROL S2 couples the most essential items for any DJ: 2 decks and a mixer, with controls for multi-effect units and a third channel for samples. Rugged and highly portable, TRAKTOR KONTROL S2 is the only controller of its size to come with the full version of TRAKTOR PRO 2 included, the same software that pro DJs of all genres use. With Native Instruments TRAKTOR 2 Technology Inside, the S2 is tuned for maximum intuitiveness and creativity, resulting in a fluid and fun mixing experience.

    The included TRAKTOR PRO 2 software is the culmination of 10 years of experience as an industry-leading DJ platform. Its ease of use and astounding creative arsenal are built on the concept of TRAKTOR 2 Technology Inside.

    TruWave colored waveforms let you see track positions easily, and identify high-energy sections or breakdowns ahead of time so you can plan the perfect moment to drop your next track. And with the advanced sync engine, your beat-matching will be locked down every time.

    This compact and portable unit was built by the same team and with the same components that brought you the TRAKTOR KONTROL S4, the wildly-popular market-leader that revolutionized the all-in-one DJ system. Robust knobs and backlit buttons let you know what’s going on at all times. Two high-quality, pressure-sensitive jog wheels deliver total track control and easy pitch bending and tempo nudging.

    TRAKTOR KONTROL S2 is the ideal hardware for new DJs who want to access the same great features used by the pros in an easily accessible and focused format.

    There’s no steep learning curve with the S2. The perfect integration between hardware and software means everything is ready to go, so you can focus on selecting the hottest tracks from your hard drive or iTunes library. Get deep into the powerful looping features, and use the four dedicated ‘hot-cue’ buttons to effortlessly remix and re-edit tunes on the fly.

    The Samples knob lets you mix the eight Sample Deck slots into your mix – either record loops from the playing track or use any of the included sound content. Two flexible FX units give you access to 30 pro effects that automatically sync to tempo, so you can easily stamp your own style on the mix.

    Comments about Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S2:

    I have been a bedroom mixer for just over a year using a Vestax Typhoon, which is an excellent solution for the money. I learned just about all I know using it, which isn't much as of yet. I wanted to take the next step into a higher end solution using either Traktor or Serato software. I first tried the Novation Twitch with the Serato Itch software and like everything about the form factor. However, after days of trying to use the Twitch with songs I had previously mixed using the Typhoon, I just could not execute the mixes. I tried over many hours over several days and finally gave up and returned the unit. The software was very challenging to use and would not hold beats like I expected. Then, the next step was the natural move to a Traktor solution. Since Native Instruments writes the Traktor software and builds their Kontrol hardware right around the software, it seemed like a great place to start. Every review on the web for the Kontrol S2 is sparkling, so it seemed like a good bet. And, it surely appears to have been the right choice, to say the least. In less than an hour, I could pull off mixes using my previous songs effortlessly. I found the software to be infinitely easier to use than the Serato. There are also countless powerful features in the software that I will soon be utilizing for my mixes. The Traktor Kontrol S2 is a huge leap for me and I can't wait to dig in much deeper into the world of mixing. I have never DJ'd a gig and am not sure if I ever will, but the S2 is a more than capable tool for the professional. The hardware seems very well built and is more than portable. So, to me, if you are a bedroom mixer or even a professional DJ, I think the Traktor Kontrol S2 from Native Instruments may be a great tool for you. Have fun mixing!

    AMAZING

    By Brandon Mozzetti

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S2:

    I'm just taken by how intuitive this controller is, the quality of the hardware is great, the seemless integration with the software amazed me. I went from using an american audio vms4 (garbage) with virtual dj and the difference just makes me so greatful to have the people at native intruments doing all of the great things they are.
    This is the best controller you will find for the price... by FAR.
    Seriously though, this is the controller for anyone.
    Buy it.

    Traktor Kontrol S2

    By Aaron Hjelt

    from West Dakota

    Comments about Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S2:

    I really enjoy the convenience, simplicity, and overall feel of the S2. I have no qualms about being a laptop DJ. I just pop the S2 on my mixer stand and my laptop on a tripod stand and plug in. No need for a massive table and crating around a bunch of junk. It's legitimate.
    Contains direct hardware interface with the best features of the Traktor software. There really isn't anyting missing. It is small, compact, and sounds great. I don't scratch, but the jog wheels have a great response, the level faders are smooth and tight. The knobs are buttery. The buttons have a solid feel. You can run a backup (ipod or whatever) through the mic input if your system crashes and you need to reboot, just watch the levels! It seems to be a common thought that this doesn't work. It does. Oh, the booth output is handy, too.
    Very well built. It's not a tank, though, so make sure you protect it during transport. I've had a Kontrol X1 for two years and the buttons/knobs still feel great...I'll expect the same from the S2.
    With the current promotion, it's a steal, especially since you get the software; if you already have Traktor 2, you can sell the software or use it on another laptop.
