Florian Meindl posts about his NI Traktor Kontrol D2: "Getting into my new @nativeinstruments D2 Kontroler - this is a huge step towards hybrid DJ LIVE Acts! The STEM mix format is amazing, taking out a vocal or only the vocal of a track has never been so easy!" In the comment thread, he continues: "Ah.. and the laptop is just CPU and storage medium anymore ;-) I don't need to look at it or touch it anymore...." (photo posted to his Instagram April 2015)more
The TRAKTOR Series from Native Instruments has blossomed from a basic digital vinyl platform, into a beautifully engineered, high-performance DJ control system. Adding to this thriving series, Native Instruments introduces the TRAKTOR KONTROL D2 DJ Controller, a portable, touch-and-seek deck controller designed for cutting-edge performance with TRAKTOR PRO 2 software.
With its integrated full-color display and touch-sensitive controller, the KONTROL D2 delivers a responsive workflow for the uncompromising DJ. It’s both lightweight and portable, just combine two D2s and a DJ mixer to set-up a cutting-edge club rig in minutes. The high-res display puts TRAKTOR software in plain sight, right before your eyes, while the touch-sensitive performance pads, faders, and knobs unleash your wildest creativity.
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 Deck controls unlock the door to creativity – and your signature sound. Intuitively mix in sounds with 4+4 channel Remix Deck 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 coming soon that introduces multi-channel mixing with different musical elements of a track. TRAKTOR KONTROL D2 is Stem-ready – among the first DJ controllers of its kind to offer mixing possibilities with the very DNA of your music.
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.
Total Native control over Traktor. Quick access to remix decks, stems, hot cues et cetera. I own two and I love them.
