Traktor DJ 1.5 SuperSlicer [Video]

Yesterday, Native Instruments released a new Free Traktor DJ 1.5 update for the iOS DJ platform which adds a new SuperSlicer feature that's sure to get DJ's talking. The new SuperSlicer feature works just like Pioneer or Serato's slicer function in that the music gets divided into equal parts for manupulation, but the SuperSlicer also lets DJ's add deconstruct loops using Scratch, Brake, Reverse, Slice or even Pitch-Shift effects.

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 X1 MK2 Released

The new Traktor Kontrol X1 MK2 has now shipped from Native Instruments to a local DJ gear store near you. The new Traktor X1 has most of the same functions as the original X1 including cue points, browse/load controls, effects, and loops, 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. Our full review is on the way, but check out Felix Da Housecat using the X1 in this new NI demo.

[Video] Traktor DJ Cable Released

Just as I'm heading out the door to drive less than an hour away to the DJ Expo in Atlantic City, Native Instruments sends me a new press release about their new Traktor DJ Cable. The Traktor DJ Cable is now available for only $19.99 and it works as a DJ splitter cable which turns one eighth-inch output into two separate output sockets. This is imperative for DJ's as one output is used to cue (or pre-listen) to the music in the headphones while the audience listens to the master output through the speakers.

The Traktor Kontrol Z2 2+2 Mixer/Controller was just released a couple of months ago and it's already looking like another success for NI. The popularity of our Full HD-Video review and the DIY Full-Innofader installation Video for the Z2 confirms that this product has the goods to become a major player in the DJ arena. The Decksaver team has just shipped the new polycarbonate covers for the Traktor Kontrol Z2 and Mixware.net was gracious enough to send one to the DJbooth Lab for a quick feature video after the jump.

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.
