The Traktor S8 will completely change the way you perform. Letting you take a further step away from laptop control and letting you perform hands on. Offering dedicated controls over so many aspects of Traktor DJ and including Traktor Scratch Pro 2 out of the box.
The Native Kontrol S8's got more knobs and screens than we've ever seen on a DJ controller before but things don't get confusing. On using it we found that NI's experience with Maschine has delivered something similar for DJ's, powerful but completely intuitive. With full visual feedback and bright lit LEDs to let you know what's going on at all times.
Two high-res color displays put TRAKTOR software in plain sight. Browsing, track info, effect, and filter values come into view directly in front of you. Keep an eye on the running track’s ultra-crisp vector waveform. Or access Remix Decks in full view.
Made For Traktor Scratch Pro 2
TRAKTOR KONTROL S8 is built for seamless control of the included TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO 2* – the choice DJ software of countless professionals worldwide. Get in-depth control of your music with up to four software decks, customizable interface, timecode media, and advanced track library management.
Next Gen Decks
Play different. TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO’s Effects, Remix Decks, and track browsing come to life on full color displays triggered by touch-sensitive controls. Two wide touch strips allow for pitch bending, track seeking, and vinyl scratch emulation. Sixteen color-coded performance pads transform the decks into powerful live performance controls. Trigger Remix Set cells, slice up and rearrange in Freeze mode, tweak your loops, or improvise using hotcues – all within view, and within reach.
The Audio Interface
The S8 offers the most comprehensive connectivity on a TRAKTOR controller yet. Four analog inputs with phono and mic preamps let you connect turntables, CDJs or other gear. Both XLR and RCA master outputs and ¼ inch booth outputs connect the TRAKTOR KONTROL S8 to any sound system imaginable. 24-bit/48kHz of built-in, pristine audio boosts output to levels designed for the most demanding situations. MIDI In and Out lets you sync TRAKTOR with synthesizers, drum computers, MASCHINE, or external effects.
