Description

Experience a new way to mix and perform with TRAKTOR KONTROL S8: a 4-channel stand-alone mixer, professional audio interface, and enhanced performance decks for ultimate control over the included TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO software.

Get Scratch'n
Mix with your digital files on turntables or CDJs with TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO 2 software plus vinyl and CD control. Native Scratch technology features ultra-responsive timecode for outstanding performance on up to four decks. Spin with super-precise 2kHz control signal on 120g vinyl that feels just like a 12-inch record. Or use TRAKTOR’s loops and hot cues with your CDJs’ cue and manual looping functions to get the best out of both analog and digital mediums. And improvise live using Remix Decks with timecode control to seamlessly merge the worlds of DJing and live performance.

At A Glance:
  • Cutting-edge DJ controller, decks, and stand-alone mixer
  • Stunning high-res displays react to touch-sensitive controls
  • Plug-and-play with included TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO software

Cutting-EdgeTouch-Sensitive Controls & High-Res Displays
Get physical with the music. Touch-sensitive knobs, faders, and LED-guided touch strips bring TRAKTOR software to life on vivid full-color displays, keeping you focused on performance – not on your laptop. The S8’s touch-and-see workflow means you connect with your music – and with your crowd.

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.

You Music - Your Way
Create your signature sound with responsive Remix Deck controls. Intuitively mix in sounds with 4+4 channel Remix Deck faders. Plus, live capture and trigger your own samples and loops using 16 color-coded performance pads.

Performance Is Everything!
Connect anything your setup needs – TRAKTOR KONTROL S8 boasts the most expansive connectivity on a DJ controller yet. The on-board 4-channel mixer features unique wear-resistant faders that offer unprecedented durability. Plus, TRAKTOR Mode buttons on every mixer channel switch between TRAKTOR and stand-alone mode – ideal for handing the night over to the next DJ.

DESIGNED FOR TRAKTOR PRO SOFTWARE
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.

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 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.

        Comments about Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S8 All-In-One Dj Controller:

        My idea of a perfect controller is one that works with you and not against. . This is one, if not the best controller I've seen to date. The flow is so good and natural feeling and takes a good portion of the features out of your computer and puts them and places them where you can easily reach with just a couple buttons. I want what is in my head to come out of the speakers I'm plugged into All of this will help any muscian up the bar on their mixes because you can so easily implement sounds and functions into your mix. As being a person who plays a variety of instruments, it was really important and most of all, FUN, mixing with this controller. It felt more like I was playing an instrument and less like playing with a controller jammed up with a ton of functions and menus.

        The S8 is Great

        By 

        from Edison, NJ

        Comments about Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S8 All-In-One Dj Controller:

        The Traktor S8 is definitely an improvement from the S4. The added decks and better touch response pads make a world of difference. Strudy construction.

        What a controller

        By 

        from Cleveland ohio

        Staff Reviewer

        Comments about Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S8 All-In-One Dj Controller:

        Now here we have it. Touch sensitive controls, two decks, mixer and software all in one box. Talk about one of the best controllers for live djs. Along with the two screens that show the tractor software on screen while you mix I don't think you can really go wrong here. On top of all that the controller even has wear resistant faders so they last longer than any other controller or mixer!
