Native Instruments Traktor D2
The Traktor Kontrol D2 provides you with advanced hands on control over your Traktor software through touch-sensitive controls along with a stunning high resolution display, it will allow you to remain focused on the music and not on your laptop. Thanks to the Traktor Kontrol D2's smart views and pop-up panels, it can deliver dynamic visual feedback to keep you fully informed as you mix allowing you to browse your song library and monitor effects on the D2 itself.
A multi-purpose touch strip allows for pitch bending, track seeking, and vinyl scratch emulation strip, and with the touch sensitive knobs you can respond in the mix and control the filter, pitch, and effect parameters that are displayed on the screen. The trigger cue points and loops are indicated through colour coded pads, allowing for instant creative editing and more without having to divert your attention away from the controller and back to the laptop.
The Beatgrid view can also be quickly accessed via this screen, instantly showing you your grids on the display for easy editing directly from the D2 and you can even set a new track's beatgrid in real time from the first play should the need arise whilst performing.
The Traktor Kontrol D2 is fully Stems ready, with four touch-sensitive performance faders and knobs on hand that instantly correspond to each stem part, making it ready for mixing, EQing, or adding effects to the individual elements displayed and made accessible once a Stem file is loaded onto a deck.
The rear panel USB ports on the D2 allow you to chain two TRAKTOR controllers using just one of your computer's USB ports, reducing your required connections and allowing you to hook up a second D2 deck, F1 or X1 controller to expand on your mixing options even further. To help keep the clutter down in the booth, Native have included a unique power supply splitter cable that powers both units simultaneously for minimal setup making it more ideal when touring from gig to gig.
The Traktor Kontrol D2 is a great, lightweight and highly portable DJ solution, allowing you to take advantage of many of Traktor Pro’s more advanced features, where ever you may be playing.
