All TRAKTOR products now come with TRAKTOR PRO 2.5 – the flagship DJ software that will elevate your mixes to new heights.
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 - all perfectly in time.
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. Welcome to the future of DJing.
DJing with the S2 feels instantly familiar thanks to its ergonomic mixer section, including headphone pre-listen cue buttons and 3-band EQ for full sonic control. The rugged, long-life faders are designed for a lifetime of tough use, and excel in providing sharp, cutting performance in the most demanding environments.
The 2+1 concept adds an additional ‘Samples’ knob alongside the 2- deck channels - allowing the smooth mixing of all eight Sample Deck slots as a third channel –a unique and innovative feature for a compact unit.
A ‘mirrored’ design means the S2’s controller reflects the layout of the software - ensuring effortless ease of use. Sturdy knobs and backlit buttons let DJs focus on the crowd rather than the software. FX assign buttons send audio to the two FX sections per deck, while the pitch faders work relatively – smoothing out any sudden tempo jumps.
Two high-res jog wheels are pressure-sensitive and make track seeking, pitch bending, tempo nudging and scratching a breeze. And with 30 times more data transfer than competing controllers using the standard MIDI protocol, there’s no tighter feeling unit out there.
An all-in-one system needs great sound quality, two separate audio channels to pre-listen the next track, and punchy output to rock the biggest parties. Consequently, inside the S2 is a powerful audio interface, built to the same award-winning standard as Native Instruments’
Incorporating high-end Cirrus Logic AD/DA converters, hi-gain 1/4" stereo outputs and an audio response of up to 24-bit/ 96Khz, this unit packs seriously professional punch.
TRAKTOR KONTROL S2 comes with the flagship TRAKTOR PRO 2 included - the rock-solid 4-deck DJ platform that combines a jaw-dropping creative arsenal with absolute flexibility and power - used by the top-flight DJs of all genres, and the winner of “Best DJ Software” three years in a row at the prestigious DJ Mag Tech Awards.
TRAKTOR PRO 2’s interface makes it a pleasure to use – the Essential view is a great way to get started with TRAKTOR, keeping you focused on your mix at all times. The TruWave hi-res colored waveforms separate out the kicks and snares, and let you see the whole track at a glance.
The lower third of the screen holds the powerful browser – instantly find tracks via iTunes or from your iPod, or flick through your library using Crate Flick – recognize and select tracks by artwork like digging through a box of vinyl.
TRAKTOR’s advanced beat detection engine makes tight mixing a given, now tried and tested on tracks of all genres. On import, track tempos are auto-detected, and TRAKTOR creates a beat grid automatically. With one grid marker in place, beat matching two tracks is simple – all track decks, Remix Decks and even the effects are locked down to the tempo of the track currently running.
Plus, with the Snap function, cue points and loops can be set on the fly and ‘snap’ to either the next or previous beat, while the ‘Quantize’ mode means they’ll wait for the right moment to launch – keeping your set tight.
Right out of the box you’ll instantly find yourself exploring the deeply inventive yet incredibly simple looping functions. At the push of the loop encoder, grab and set loop lengths that you can even change while its running. Layer up those loops in each of the eight Sample Deck slots. Bring the Sample Deck sounds into the mix via the ingeniously simple Samples knob.
Four ‘Hot Cue’ buttons per deck let you jump to any part of the song without dropping a beat – if the button is lit, a cue point is set – just hit the button and launch the track from that position. Rearrange, re-edit and remix tracks on the fly – blur the boundaries between a DJ set and a live performance.
A selection of amazing loops and sounds are included to get you underway. Created by Loopmasters, the 40 original loops and 10 full tracks cover drums, bass, percussion and synth loops in dubstep, minimal, house, techno and trance styles – start live remixing in no time.
Two independent FX units with over 30 effects are on hand to help you color your sound. From standards like delay, reverb and flanger to unique performance effects like TRAKTOR’s Beatmasher and BeatSlicer – it’s time to expand your sonic territories.
