The TRAKTOR KONTROL Z2 from Native Instruments is a Control Mixer that features 2 stereo inputs channels and 2 stereo output channels, but its plentiful connectivity offers far beyond that. KONTROL Z2's mixing layout is ergonomic and spacious with a level fader, 3-band EQ section and chunky filter knob per channel. Additionally, the mixer includes the full TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO 2 digital vinyl system with Remix Deck technology.

Inside the TRAKTOR KONTROL Z2, a 24-bit soundcard featuring Cirrus Logic converters and XLR outputs provides low-noise audio. The aircraft-grade aluminum chassis features extensive control with knobs, buttons, push encoders and Innofaders. The Z2's backlit buttons provide precise visual feedback while the built-in, powered USB hub adds connectivity for two add-on controllers such as the KONTROL F1 or X1.

Additional TRAKTOR rotary encoders for Macro FX and Remix Decks are placed in the KONTROL section alongside Flux Mode buttons for easy access, and multi-colored cue point trigger buttons allow you to jump through and re-edit your tracks on the fly.

          I like the fact you don't have to have a interface built in and it has 2 extra USB slots for additional controllers
          Durable design
          Love the drum pads on the mixer makes it easy to create cue points and like the fact it's give me a option to add two more decks and be able to control all 4 with the mixer
          The faders are really accurate and the curve is really up to the user

          I would recommend this product

            Comments about Native Instruments TRAKTOR KONTROL Z2 - 2+2 Channel Control Mixer:

            All I need is 2 channels and 2 turntables and the party is a go!!! The world is changing, so I made some changes (sort of). I put this unit with a pair of CDJ 900s and the control I have over Traktor gives me that old school feel I'd been missing with my earlier set ups. I don't spend nearly the time at my keyboard that I did before. I was skeptical not going with a Pioneer mixer, but this has the clear sound and punch that I've been used to for years with Pioneer. The extra is there if I want to experiment, but the ease and simplicity of this setup is what has me floored.
