Nuevo Controlador TRAKTOR KONTROL S2

Native Instruments acaba de lanzar un nuevo modelo de controladora MIDI, después de un verano sin apenas noticias, Native Instruments vuelve a desmarcarse, esta vez con el anuncio de Traktor Kontrol S2, un nuevo controlador para Traktor basado en el S4, pero ahora orientado al manejo de 2 pistas. El controlador es bastante similar, e incluye también una versión completa de Traktor Pro 2. Entre los controles se incluye la rueda jog con sistema exclusivo de Native Instruments (pendiente de ser patentado), junto a todo tipo de botones, potenciómetros y deslizadores para controlar pitch, pistas, efectos y labores de mezcla general.

Para ofrecer a los DJs una alternativa más portátil para el profesional que el S4, el KONTROL se basa en un controlador de hardware con las mismas características que su hermano mayor: jog wheels de alta precisión, controles ergonómicos para cueing, looping y efectos, tarjeta de sonido integrada 24bit/96 kHz con salidas estéreo dual, basada en la galardonada tecnología de las interfaces de audio de Native Instruments, que proporcionan la misma calidad de sonido, una claridad suprema y un volumen de salida especialmente alto.

Aunque Traktor S2 es básicamente un controlador para dos pistas, NI ha incluido una tercera salida que permite mezclar y monitorear de forma dedicada lo que ocurre en los SampleDeck. Internamente incorpora convertidores AD/DA Cirrus Logic con salidas TRS y operación a 24-Bit y 96kHz.

Traktor Kontrol S2 estará disponible en tiendas el próximo 4 de octubre. Tendrá un precio de 599 euros. Vídeo al final del post

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.
