Native Instruments TRAKTOR KONTROL S2 couples the most essential items for any DJ: 2 decks and a mixer, with controls for multi-effect units and a third channel for samples. Rugged and highly portable, TRAKTOR KONTROL S2 is the only controller of its size to come with the full version of TRAKTOR PRO 2 included, the same software that pro DJs of all genres use. With Native Instruments TRAKTOR 2 Technology Inside, the S2 is tuned for maximum intuitiveness and creativity, resulting in a fluid and fun mixing experience.
The included TRAKTOR PRO 2 software is the culmination of 10 years of experience as an industry-leading DJ platform. Its ease of use and astounding creative arsenal are built on the concept of TRAKTOR 2 Technology Inside.
TruWave colored waveforms let you see track positions easily, and identify high-energy sections or breakdowns ahead of time so you can plan the perfect moment to drop your next track. And with the advanced sync engine, your beat-matching will be locked down every time.
This compact and portable unit was built by the same team and with the same components that brought you the TRAKTOR KONTROL S4, the wildly-popular market-leader that revolutionized the all-in-one DJ system. Robust knobs and backlit buttons let you know what’s going on at all times. Two high-quality, pressure-sensitive jog wheels deliver total track control and easy pitch bending and tempo nudging.
TRAKTOR KONTROL S2 is the ideal hardware for new DJs who want to access the same great features used by the pros in an easily accessible and focused format.
There’s no steep learning curve with the S2. The perfect integration between hardware and software means everything is ready to go, so you can focus on selecting the hottest tracks from your hard drive or iTunes library. Get deep into the powerful looping features, and use the four dedicated ‘hot-cue’ buttons to effortlessly remix and re-edit tunes on the fly.
The Samples knob lets you mix the eight Sample Deck slots into your mix – either record loops from the playing track or use any of the included sound content. Two flexible FX units give you access to 30 pro effects that automatically sync to tempo, so you can easily stamp your own style on the mix.

This is hands down the best entry level Traktor controller! I have done multiple gigs with and it stands up no problem,I even love the fact that it has a much smaller footprint then the s4(more room in the booth,fits better on smaller tables). Overall the build quality feels very solid. The knobs,faders,and platters all have serious grip and feel like your using an actual machine and not a toy. I would defiantly recommend this and Traktor to a beginner DJ or a seasoned veteran who wants to break into digital djing.
never been happier with a purchase, and has a real feel not like any other controller ive seen.
Highly Recommend the S2 for anyone looking to Expand there mixing horizons. A lot of people give the S2 a hard time for not have the ability to control for decks straight off your hardware but the controller can be mapped to 4 decks and it handles it with ease as i personally use it like that.Alongside other NI products Like the F1 or Maschine, The S2s simplicity makes it less problematic and more seamless for any application.TRAKTOR PRO 2 comes as a full version with the 2.5 upgrade available free to anyone who buys the software or the S2 or S4.If you plan on expanding your Mixing rig with maschine or the F1 this is perfect!
So I'm fairly new to Djing, mainly dubstep as I love to produce dubstep. Started mixing few months ago, started off with the Hercules Rmx, and it just didnt really feel like I had a nice decent size controller with all the features id like to have such as it was limited with minimum knobs, effects, etc. Paid 300+ tax for that, and recently saw this bad boy was on sale. I returned it and paid the extra $100 to get this and I am more than glad that I did. This is a great controller, the size is perfect for mobile Djs, has all the light up button feature. And probably if not the best 2 channel/deck controller out there. Easy to set up if you follow the directions, built in sound card so good to go and start mixing instantly. Like said it comes with traktor pro 2, and it's a great program. Has over 30 effects right out of the box. Although sad to say if I had not found this on sale for $400, I dont think I would of paid 600-700+ for this at retail price seems little too spendy, but when I got it on sale for almost half the price I knew I was getting a good deal, and a amazing controller for sure. I love the layout, the jog wheels feel great. They are fun to sratch with and have a good feel to them, YOU CAN ALSO RE-MAP THE JOG WHEELS IF YOU DO NOT SCRATCH OR PITCH BEND! ...so that the jog wheels control the 3 fx buttons all at one time per deck. Which is very fun and creative to mixing and remixing songs. Also I am new to traktor, so I've really just been getting the hang of all of this, switching over from Vdj. And I must say I like traktor much more the way it's made out. Very glad I got this controller especially while I saw it was on sale. Although it seems where I live they ran out or something the first couple days this controller went ons sale. Went to 2 stores and called 4, only 1 store had 1 in stock, took 2 days to ship over to the store by me. Seems as if someone opened the box but the controller itself inside looked untouched. Has worked fine since I bought it.
This is the first DJ controller I have ever purchased and all I can say is I am definitely glad I did! The setup is easy to learn and is perfectly integrated with the included software (Which is also fantastic). I plugged it in, turned it on, and was making mixes in my first couple of hours. The build feels nice and solid as well as all the knobs and faders. If you are a beginner and are looking for a great controller to start on, look no further. This is the controller for you!
