Berlin, October 4th, 2011 – Native Instruments is excited to announce
that TRAKTOR KONTROL S2 is now available in stores worldwide. The
versatile integrated DJ performance system is based on a compact version
of the market-leading KONTROL S4 hardware, and was designed to set a new
professional standard in the two-deck category. 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.
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.

Online Shop for a suggested retail price of $669 / 599 EUR.
