Free Scratch Upgrade for Traktor Kontrol S4 Users

Just last week I put out a video showing the Traktor Kontrol S4 DJ controller working with external decks using timecode in order to operate all four decks simultaneously with a lot more control. This video was done on Traktor Pro 2 at the time, but now Native Instruments is giving away a FREE "Scratch Upgrade Kit" which will allow users to mix and scratch with timecode via the directly connected turntables or CD decks. Check inside for more information.

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.
