NI Traktor Kontrol S8 Preview [Video]

The Traktor Kontrol S8 was leaked by Amazon and various other sources earlier this month and even though we already knew what this was, we decided to keep quiet until NI themselves let the cat out of the bag. They did so yesterday with a new Teaser Video showing various parts of the new Traktor Kontrol S8 and the shiny new screens that DJ's can use for playback rather than looking at the computer screen.

NI Traktor Kontrol D2 Unboxing [Video]

NI has sent us two of their newest compact DJ controllers for Traktor called the Traktor Kontrol D2 for the full review treatment. The Traktor Kontrol D2 is essentially the "deck" section of the recently reviewed Traktor Kontrol S8 DJ controller and it sports the same hi-res screen and heavy remix/stem deck control with multicolored backlit pads and volume controls. The D2 and the S8 uses the remix deck controls to manipulate the new Stems file format. Watch our quick unboxing and first impressions video to see a fresh D2 out of the package.

DJ Shiftee Traktor Kontrol S8 Performance [Video]

We recently reviewed the new Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S8 which is a very powerful DJ controller for Traktor while also working as a DVS enabled mixer for external turntables and CDJ style control. The legendary DJ Shiftee has just completed a pretty sick turntable timecode DVS performance along with using some of the new cool features on the Traktor Kontrol S8 such as Freeze Mode. Check out this dope performance video to see what's possible with the new S8.

[Video] Traktor Kontrol S2 MK2 & S4 MK2 Unboxing & First Impressions

The new Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S2 MK2 and S4 MK2 Digital DJ controllers were just released to the public last week and we've got review units in the lab for full out video and written reviews. The new controllers boast improvements to the original designs by adding multi-color hotcue/remix deck pads, hi-res aluminum metal plate jog wheels, FLUX mode buttons, and Traktor DJ iOS compatibility. The original S2 and S4 DJ controllers were the perfect 2-channel and 4-channel mixing consoles for the Traktor software. The Traktor software has seen lots of new updates since the release of the original S2 /S4 so it's only natural that NI releases new controller interfaces to access the new advanced features such as remix decks controls and FLUX mode. We'll have the full reviews completed shortly, but check out our unboxing & first impressions videos in the meantime to see what comes in the boxes.

[Video] NI Traktor Kontrol X1 MK2 Unboxing & First Impressions

The new Traktor Kontrol X1 MK2 has now shipped from Native Instruments to our very own DJbooth.net lab for the full written and video review treatment. The new Traktor X1 has most of the same functions as the original X1 but adds a new touch-strip section in the middle of the unit that can control effects parameters, nudging for beatmatching, and for jumping to a particular section in a song. The review is on the way, but watch the unboxing video to see the new X1 MK2 fresh out of the box.
