Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S2 MK3
Exciting new features and enhancements. Introducing Traktor Pro 3 – the latest and greatest version of the award-winning Traktor DJ software. Version 3.1 is jam-packed with new features including parallel waveforms, single deck view, standalone mode (for Kontrol S4 Mk3) and custom mapping for the S8 and D2.
Parallel waveforms provide new ways to view your decks. Parallel Full and Parallel Slim settings can optionally replace the side by side waveforms with stacked ones for ergonomic positioning. Single deck view introduces the ability to set the number of visible decks to one. This results in your decks’ waveform being stretched across the full width of the screen for increased precision.
The introduction of tag writing mode means you can not configure the types of metadata Traktor writes to audio file. A range of improvements and fixes have been made as well, for the full list of features and more; visit the Traktor Pro 3.1 website.
New large jog wheels
A noticeable difference is the new large jog wheels. These offer more responsive touch-sensitivity, giving you precise control when scratching ad nudging to ensure your beats are beatmatched perfectly.
There’s two new modes. Jog mode is the classic spin-to-nudge function, as well as scratch capability. The Beatgrid adjust mode allows you to use the jog wheel to manually adjust the beatgrid in Traktor.
Essential Traktor control
The Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S2 features a layout that is designed for perfect Traktor software integration. The controls are all familiar, allowing for you to easily get to grips with each control and function. The controls and knobs are already assigned to work with Traktor Pro. However, you can also customise the mapping.
The Traktor Kontrol S2 offers a range of controls for providing seamless, creative mixing. It offers all the essential Traktor features including sturdy EQ/FX knobs, precision jog wheels, and remix decks. The Kontrol S2 enables you to mashup tracks and create loops easily on-the-fly.
