Traktor Kontrol S2 Unboxing & First Impressions HD-Video

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.
