First and foremost, I hope you are all enjoying the holidays as much as I am. Native Instruments also hopes to make this holiday season a bit more enjoyable by giving all who purchase a new Traktor Kontrol Z1 a free copy of the full flagship Traktor Pro 2 software. We originally reviewed the Traktor Kontrol Z1 compact mixing console a few months ago and we noted that it only comes bundled with Traktor LE (light edition) with limited features. From now until January 10th, 2014 anyone who purchases a new Z1 can take advantage of all the additional functionality using the free upgrade to Traktor Pro 2.

Traktor Kontrol X1 MK2 Leaked?

Last week, (only a day after the Traktor Z1 was announced) the popular DJ Equipment website PSSL accidentally posted a new product by Native Instruments which appears to be the Traktor Kontrol X1 MK2. The original Traktor Kontrol X1 came out a few years ago and is commonly used by Traktor DJ's as a playback companion controller with DVS setups or other mixing consoles. The updated X1 has most of the same functions as the original with a few new additions including RGB backlit buttons for Remix Deck control, Flux Mode buttons, a Touch Sensitive Strip for beatmatching/nudging and much more.

NI Traktor Kontrol S8 Official Launch [Video]

The new Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S8 DJ controller has now officially been announced and all the details have been released by the NI team. The S8 was already teased and leaked about a month ago, but with little details. We now know that the Kontrol S8 will operate as a completely Stand-Alone 4-channel mixer, it has touch sensitive knobs, high quality user-replaceable faders, and dual high resolution screens for all the Traktor information one could need.

NI Traktor Kontrol S2 & S4 April Pricedrop

Native Instruments is offering a $50 discount on the new Traktor Kontrol S2 MK2 and the S4 MK2 from now until the end of the month (April 30th) or until supplies last. This brings the price of the new S2 down to $450 and the price of a new S4 down to only $700. The Interesting part about all of this to me is the fact that they mention the deal is good until "supplies last" which makes me speculate as to whether or not NI has a new controller coming soon.

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.

[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.
