Berlin, August 25th, 2011 – Native Instruments today announced TRAKTOR
KONTROL S2, a versatile integrated DJ performance system that was
designed to set a new professional standard in the two-deck category.
Based on a compact version of the market-leading KONTROL S4 hardware,
the KONTROL S2 provides a "2+1" setup with sample decks as well as
comprehensive mixing and effect features, all based on the included
full-featured TRAKTOR PRO 2 software.
To offer DJs a more portable alternative to the professional 4-deck
TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 system, the KONTROL S2 is centered around a new
compact controller hardware. It provides the same patent-pending
high-resolution jog wheels, combined with ergonomic controls for cueing,
looping and effects. The integrated 24bit/96 kHz sound card with its
dual stereo outputs is based on the award-winning technology of the
TRAKTOR audio interface range, and provides the same acclaimed sound
quality with its supreme clarity and especially high output volume.
The two full-featured playback decks of the TRAKTOR KONTROL S2 are
complemented by the versatile Sample Decks of the latest TRAKTOR PRO 2
software, which can add up to eight simultaneous one-shot samples or
beat-synced loops to the mix. This effectively equips the KONTROL S2
system with a third channel that opens up a wide range of additional
creative performance techniques beyond the typical two-deck paradigm in
its product category.
TRAKTOR KONTROL 2 benefits from the same seamless bi-directional
software-hardware integration as the KONTROL S4, featuring convenient
plug&play configuration, dynamically backlit control elements and the
high-resolution NHL protocol, for maximum efficiency both during the
setup and the actual DJ performance.

"Enjoy the Silence" with the KONTROL S2 is available on YouTube at:
TRAKTOR KONTROL S2 will be available in October for a suggested retail
price of $669 / 599 EUR.
