2 + 2 Channel control mixer with full TRAKTOR integration.
Native Instruments has taken the incredible performance power from their line of TRAKTOR DJ controllers, and have integrated that extensive knowledge into their very first 2-channel DJ mixer and controller. Enter in the world of the TRAKTOR Z2 2+2 Control Mixer. Built tough for pro club use, the Z2 excels both as a state-of-the-art club mixer alongside turntables and CDJs, and as the hub of an advanced setup of Remix Decks and controllers.
All-new Macro FX and Flux Mode in the latest TRAKTOR software expand your creative arsenal. And the heavy metal, standard installation-height chassis, sturdy RGB control buttons, and Innofaders assure rock-solid dependability.
EXPANDING ON INDUSTRY STANDARDS
Combining the best of all that's come before it, TRAKTOR KONTROL Z2 takes a powerful two-channel stand-alone mixer, adds an additional two channels for Remix Decks, puts TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO 2 in the package and rolls it out in luxurious style.
The ultra-stable, aircraft-grade aluminum chassis provides an intuitive layout instantly familiar to DJs, offering unprecedented sonic control. Throw in an integrated premium audio interface and dedicated TRAKTOR controls for cue points and Remix Decks and your options become infinite. Whatever your style, you've never had control like this before.
ERGONOMIC AND INTUITIVE
Based on industry-standard DJ mixer design, TRAKTOR KONTROL Z2's DJ-friendly layout is ergonomic and intuitive for uninterrupted flow from the moment you get your hands on it. A spacious control surface with faders, 3-band EQ section and dedicated chunky filter knob per channel - each in exactly the right place - gives you maximum control.
Additional TRAKTOR rotary encoders for Macro FX and Remix Decks are placed in the Kontrol Section alongside Flux Mode buttons for easy access, and multi-colored cue point trigger buttons allow you to jump through and re-edit your tracks in style.
PROFESSIONAL BUILD QUALITY
A rock solid, aircraft-grade aluminum chassis takes build quality to a whole new level - even by TRAKTOR standards. Precision knobs, buttons, push encoders and Innofaders give you ultra-accurate control of your sets.
The Z2's premium, backlit buttons provide precise visual feedback in even the darkest clubs, and the built-in, powered USB hub adds connectivity for two add-on controllers such as TRAKTOR KONTROL F1 or X1, freeing up laptop ports.

Comments about Native Instruments TRAKTOR KONTROL Z2:
First off Ean Golden had a hand in designing this mixer, if you dont know who he is you should. Second they put innofaders in this, mind you they are a specalized mini fader they do feel very quality.
I am a huge fan of SSL but Traktor has stollen my heart. This product hands downed changed the way I aproach DJing and the ease of use to build concepts into musical routines. For the price of this you just can not go wrong.
Be carfull though by switching to Traktor you may, like myself find your self falling down a rabbit hole of endless posibilities and auxilary MIDI controlers. But that is not such a bad place after all, O and get mashine with it, you wont regret!

Comments about Native Instruments TRAKTOR KONTROL Z2:
I've been a DJ since 1992 playing house, jungle drum and bass, and mostly hip hop. This mixer is for the battle DJ turned producer. Great for bedroom DJs. The effects control are very intuitive. The cross fader is excellent and comparable to a Rane Mixer cross fader, so scratch DJs will have no issue with this. Also, all faders are interchangeable with higher end Innofaders vice the OEM mini innofaders which come standard with this mixer. The only con I have found is the fact that you cannot listen to Master Output through head phones. So you cannot listen to your live performance through the head phones, which comes in handy late at night; when you want to practice your scratching while the family is asleep. You can always plug your 1/4" head phone jack into the booth output to solve this so hence, still 5 stars. Love this mixer. It is heavy and bulky, but that is a good thing in the studio. Something to take into consideration is, you can hack the system and run Serato with this if you are a club DJ. Serato is the industry standard, so it is irritating when a Traktor Scratch guy wants to swap out with you at the club and has Traktor Control, it becomes a big hassle. Additionally the sound quality is excellent. I've been using pioneer mixers for most of my DJ career, and I can tell no difference in sound quality between the two (Pioneer again, the industry standard in most clubs around the world). That being said, another con is no hardware effects with exception of the high and low filter (very good by the way). But, the software effects in Traktor are so good, and the interface control knobs on the mixer make it easy to control, once you have set the parameters you like in the software. Hope this info helps someone.
