Native Instruments Announces DJ System

TRAKTOR KONTROL S2 to be released in October      29/08/11

Native Instruments has announced TRAKTOR KONTROL S2, which they describe as a versatile integrated DJ performance system designed to set a new professional standard in the two-deck category. Based on a compact version of the KONTROL S4 hardware, the KONTROL S2 provides a '2+1' setup with sample decks as well as comprehensive mixing and effect features, all based on the included full-featured TRAKTOR PRO 2 software.
To offer DJs a more portable alternative to the professional 4-deck TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 system, the KONTROL S2 is centered around a new compact controller hardware. It provides the same patent-pending high-resolution jog wheels, combined with ergonomic controls for cueing, looping and effects. The integrated 24bit/96 kHz sound card with its dual stereo outputs is based on the award-winning technology of the TRAKTOR audio interface range, and, say NI, provides the same sound quality with its supreme clarity and especially high output volume.
The two full-featured playback decks of the TRAKTOR KONTROL S2 are complemented by the versatile 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 creative performance techniques beyond the typical two-deck paradigm in its product category.
Native Instruments tell us that TRAKTOR KONTROL 2 benefits from the same seamless bi-directional software-hardware integration as the KONTROL S4, featuring convenient plug&play configuration, dynamically backlit control elements and the high-resolution NHL protocol, for maximum efficiency both during the setup and the actual DJ performance.
A video of DJ Ean Golden creating a live dubstep remix of Depeche Mode's "Enjoy the Silence" with the KONTROL S2 can be seen at the top of the story.
Pricing and Availability:
TRAKTOR KONTROL S2 will be available in October for a suggested retail price of $669 / 599 EUR. More information:
