NATIVE INSTRUMENTS Traktor Kontrol D2 - DJ Controller (PRE-ORDER)
FUTURE-FORWARD DECK CONTROL
TRAKTOR KONTROL D2 delivers portable, touch-and-see deck control designed for cutting-edge performance with TRAKTOR PRO 2. A full-color display and touch-sensitive controls deliver responsive workflow for the uncompromising DJ. And full Stems integration provides the keys to a completely new way to DJ.
The high-res display on the D2 brings your music to life in living color. Browse tracks, effects, and adjust filter values directly on the hardware. Your workflow is never interrupted – visually fine-tune and set beatgrids on a running track as it is appears on the display. The D2 keeps your focus on the music – not on your laptop.
A NEW WAY TO PLAY
Imagine workflow as effortless as instinct. Touch-sensitive knobs and faders activate TRAKTOR views and functions on an ultra-crisp full-color display, keeping you in the moment – and connected with your crowd. Cue, nudge, or get creative controlling effects and loop sizes – the D2’s LED-guided touch strip lets you get physical.
LIVE REMIXING AND BEYOND
Touch-responsive Remix and Stem Deck controls unlock the door to creativity – and your signature sound. Intuitively mix in sounds with 4+4 channel Remix faders. Plus, live-capture and trigger your own samples and loops using the 8 color-coded performance pads.
Or explore mixing with Stems* – an open file format that makes mixing with individual musical elements of a track possible. TRAKTOR KONTROL D2 is Stems-ready – among the first DJ controllers of its kind to offer mixing possibilities with the very DNA of your music.
**Stems integration available with TRAKTOR PRO 2.9 in summer 2015.
BUILT FOR THE ROAD
Pack-up and set-up in no time. TRAKTOR KONTROL D2 was designed for enhanced deck control while on the road. The compact, rugged, and lightweight build makes the D2 ideal for heavy touring – and your busy schedule.
Rubber-padded foldable feet raise the D2 to standard mixer height, or at an angle for performance comfort. And additional USB ports on the rear panel plus an included power supply splitter cable let you chain two units together quickly and easily when hustling from gig to gig.
Stems is a completely new way to DJ. A Stem file is an open, multi-channel audio file that contains a track split into four musical elements – bass, drums, vocals, and melody for example. With each element available independently, you can mix in ways that just weren’t possible until now.
Create instant track edits, mash-ups, a cappellas, and more by bringing different Stem parts in and out of the mix. And re-think the way you use effects – add effects to the vocals, and leave the rest of the track dry, for example. TRAKTOR KONTROL D2’s hardware features are purpose-built for mixing with Stems.
DESIGNED FOR TRAKTOR SOFTWARE
TRAKTOR KONTROL D2 is built for seamless control of the included TRAKTOR PRO 2 – the DJ software chosen by countless professionals worldwide. Get in-depth control of your music with up to four software decks, a customizable interface, and advanced track library management.
