OVERVIEW

Same pro DJ control, now with Lightning connectivity.

Compact, mobile, and intuitive - the remodeled TRAKTOR KONTROL S2 is the essential 2-deck professional DJ controller for TRAKTOR. Fine-tuned for maximum TRAKTOR software integration, the S2 also pairs with TRAKTOR DJ for iPad and iPhone as the cornerstone of your mobile DJ setup.

The 2+1 design brings two decks, Remix Decks, and a pro-grade mixer with multi-effect units at your command. The S2 also includes the full version of TRAKTOR PRO 2 with Remix Decks -ready for pro mixing in seconds.

THE NEW PRO
TRAKTOR PRO 2 is the platform trusted by top DJs. Mix up your tracks with Remix Decks, powerful looping and cueing functionality, and a suite of more than 30 effects. Create mixtapes with a single click using the built-in Mix Recorder. TRAKTOR PRO 2's Remix Decks allow for spectacular live remixing and re-arranging of tracks with up to 64 loops or one-shot samples per deck. Just fire up the Remix Decks and blur the boundaries between DJing and live performance.

INTUITIVE HARDWARE
Rugged and portable, TRAKTOR KONTROL S2 is ideal for new or seasoned DJs. Easily access all essential TRAKTOR features in a compact, focused format.

Engineered to the same standards as the ground-breaking TRAKTOR KONTROL S4, the S2's sturdy knobs and RGB backlit buttons keep you in control even in the darkest clubs. Two high-res jog wheels with aircraft-grade aluminum plates deliver pressure-sensitive track control, easy pitch bending, and tempo nudging.

Designed for TRAKTOR PRO with STEMS
The latest version of TRAKTOR PRO Software is STEMS ready. A Stem file is an open, multi-channel audio file that contains a track split into four musical elements – bass, drums, vocals, and melody for example. With each element available independently, you can mix in ways that just weren’t possible until now. With Stems fully supported by the included flagship TRAKTOR software, each of these TRAKTOR controllers are pre-mapped and designed for playing with Stems right out of the box. You can get mixing with Stems right away with a 1.5 GB package of free Stems tracks. Derived from selected MASCHINE expansions, these 65 Stems tracks cover a wide range of tempos and genres ranging from techno, house, and funk, to trap, drum and bass, dubstep and more.

      Comments about Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S2 MK2 with Lightning Cable:

      First off, I am reviewing the controller hardware, not traktor software, that's a personal preference on whether you like serato or Traktor. For all the DJ controllers in the 300-500 price range, this one is the most fully featured. I use the FX knobs a lot, which is the main reason it stands out against the similarly priced DDJ SB and the Numark Mixdeck Express. I have performed at a small club with it, running the audio through the club PA, and it sounded great. Overall, the controller is very intuitive and unless your a pro at mixing 4 decks, I would highly recommend this controller for any beginner DJ or pro DJ on a budget looking for a smaller or more compact controller than the boys with a big foot print like the DDJSX, S8, or NS7. Nothing wrong with those controllers feature wise, but they were too big to fit on my small tables and out of my price range of course. Bottom line: If you are looking for a simple, small, intuitive and fun controller, and cannot spend more than 500 , get the Traktor Kontrol S2. Instead of saying save your money and get a better more expensive controller, I would say have fun learning to be creative with the tools you have.

          Comments about Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S2 MK2 with Lightning Cable:

          I love this product, but I was not happy with it when I first got it. I double checked that the software was included with this product, even though it was listed as having a scratch and all cords, manual, and box were missing. I received it with no software. I called and was told to register my product with Native Instruments and my download would be available. This did not solve anything. By the third call to musicians friend I was told that it would not be provided, and I could return it if I'm unhappy. So to avoid spending about the same amount and having a lot of extra shipping, I ate the hundred it cost me to buy the traktor software needed. Guess it is a lesson learned.
