The Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol D2 is a portable and lightweight deck control for creative, professional DJ performance, taking its cue from (1/3 of) last years' Traktor Kontrol S8. It offers an extraordinary amount of features at a very competitive price - this is the controller DJs have been waiting for!
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.
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.
