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.

TRAKTOR KONTROL S2 will be available in October for a suggested retail price of $669 / 599 EUR. More information:
