Native Instruments' have turned up heat in the controller wars by releasing updated versions of their Kontrol DJ controllers for all versions of their popular Traktor software.
The new Kontrol S4 and S2 controllers are updated to offer DJs the chance to use them in conjunction with their iOS devices, simply plug and play and get hands on with the Traktor DJ version of their premium DJing software.
The Kontrol S4 rocks it with a 4 channel mixer, built-in 24 bit/96 kHz soundcard, Native’s intuitive interface, and TRAKTOR PRO 2 software with Remix Decks.
Whilst the S2 is the cut down version of the S4 with two channels instead of four. Both controllers are the ideal one-stop package for DJs who want to jump aboard the Traktor train with a minimal amount of fuss.
Turntablists and vinyl lovers can feel the love by adding scratch functions to the S4 with the TRAKTOR Scratch Pro 2 Software and Timecode Kit add-on.
The overall design has undergone a bit of a facelift with ‘aircraft grade aluminium plates’ added to the jogwheels as well as new buttons that correspond to the new updated features in Traktor Pro. The colour scheme on the controllers and the pads have slightly changed all in all making for a slick looking pair of controllers
Both versions of the updated Kontrol DJ controllers are available now at the Native Online store
