Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol D2 delivers portable, touch-and-see deck control designed for cutting-edge performance with Traktor Pro 2. A full-color display and touch-sensitive controls deliver responsive workflow for the uncompromising DJ. And full Stems integration provides the keys to a completely new way to DJ.
Traktor Kontrol D2 is purpose-built for mixing with Stems – the open, multi-channel audio format for creative DJing. A Stem file contains a track split into four musical elements – bass, drums, vocals, and melody, for example. With each element available independently, you can mix in ways that just weren’t possible until now. Mix with track elements using the D2’s four performance faders to create spontaneous, edits, mash-ups, acappellas, and more. And, get detailed with effects – add reverb to the vocals, and leave the rest of the track dry, for example. 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 using the pop-up panels and views. The Stem View, for example, provides a color-coded overview of a track’s four stems as stacked waveforms. And your workflow is never interrupted – visually fine-tune a playing track’s beatgrid in real-time on the display. 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.
Using Stems, you can intuitively layer track parts to play unique mixes, then add new details with filter and FX. And with the D2’s LED-guided touch strip, just swipe your finger to cue or nudge tracks back in sync. Traktor Kontrol D2’s touch-responsive Remix Deck controls unlock the door to creativity – and your signature sound. Intuitively mix sounds from Traktor Remix Sets with the touch-sensitive performance faders. Plus, capture and trigger your own samples and loops live using the eight color-coded performance pads. 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.
Traktor Kontrol D2 is built for seamless control of the included Traktor PRO 2 – the DJ software chosen by countless professionals worldwide. Get in-depth control of your music with up to four software decks, a customizable interface, Stems support, and advanced track library management.
