Message Text: Native Instruments today announced new versions of both the 4-channel DJ system TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 and its 2-channel counterpart, TRAKTOR KONTROL S2.

The KONTROL S4 and S2 combine a DJ mixing interface, built-in 24 bit/96 kHz soundcard, and an interface into an all-in-one DJ system engineered for accurate control of TRAKTOR software.

Both units now offer an improved look and feel with added control over the latest TRAKTOR PRO 2 features. Furthermore, both the KONTROL S4 and S2 are now plug-and-play with TRAKTOR DJ app for iPad and iPhone.

TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 now features a new design with 8 color-coded RGB buttons that trigger and identify loops, cue points, and samples for improved visual feedback. Also upgraded are high resolution jog-wheels which now feature aluminum plates for increased durability. The Flux Mode feature is now instantly accessible on the KONTROL S4 and S2 via dedicated buttons on each deck, while TRAKTOR PRO 2?s Remix Decks controls can now be accessed directly from the units.

Built to the same standards as the TRAKTOR KONTROL S4, the KONTROL S2 has also been redesigned with RGB backlit buttons, reinforced knobs, and high-res jog wheels also with new aluminum plates. In addition to offering all core TRAKTOR PRO 2 controls, the KONTROL S2 is now plug and- play with TRAKTOR DJ, delivering physical control for every function including cue points and Freeze Mode.

Both TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 and S2 include a full version of the flagship TRAKTOR PRO 2 with Remix Decks software. TRAKTOR PRO 2 offers cue, loop, and sampling functions, a suite of over 30 effects, pro-grade EQs, and fluid playback control of up to 4 decks. DJs can instantly add live editing and sampling to their sets with the use of TRAKTOR?s Remix Decks. Eight Remix Deck slots can hold a total of up to 64 loops or one-shot samples and readymade Remix Sets from renowned artists are available for instant use.

TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 and S2 also now boast integration with the TRAKTOR DJ app for iPad and iPhone. With a 2-channel mixer, 3-band equalizers, and eight professional effects, TRAKTOR DJ brings the quality of TRAKTOR PRO software to the compact iOS platform. Both units charge connected iOS devices when in use.

The TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 will be available at retailers worldwide and at the NI Online Shop for $799. The TRAKTOR KONTROL S2 will be available for $499.
