Native Instruments recently released their newest DJ Controller on the market and now we've got our hands on one for a full HD-Video review. Just as with the Traktor Kontrol S4, The Traktor Kontrol S2 is a DJ controller that works flawlessly with the new Traktor 2 software and has almost all the same features and build quality of its more expensive counterpart. The main differences being the lack of two additional channel controls and additional RCA inputs (with timecode control). If those features are not something you would miss, then the S2 might just be your best choice. The very detailed full video review is coming soon, but check out our official unboxing video to hold you over until then.
[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.
