We had a visit from the Native Instruments chaps recently, just before the BPM DJ show in Birmingham. They happened to have one of the only Traktor Kontrol Z2 DJ hardware mixers with them and were persuaded to give us a little presentation. As well as a lux DJ mixer and soundcard, the Z2 also functions as a MIDI controller with tight integration with the new Traktor 2.6 software (dropping soon) but will also do just as fine a job controing other software of your choice.
