The Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol D2 – or is it…?

Traktor Kontrol D2Yes. The NI Traktor Kontrol D2 does indeed seem to be it. Nothing official to report from Native Instruments themselves yet, but the Traktor Kontrol D2 seems to be a real thing. A quick trawl of the internet reveals a few bits and pieces, some speculation, some images, but how much truth…?

Traktor Kontrol D2 speculation?

We wouldn’t want to speculate, and we don’t need to, as there are plenty of others who are able to do that much more effectively than we would wish to attempt to do. However, the Traktor Kontrol D2 looks like it could be just the thing for those who already have bits and pieces of Traktor Kontrol in their setup – a Z1 perhaps – but who want to add some of the functionality of the Kontrol S8.

With Musikmesse on the horizon, we’re hoping for the complete lowdown soon, but for now, just think about putting one of those beautiful hi-res screens in front of you and break free from the laptop!

Traktor Kontrol D2 uses

With the screen, the pads, the faders and a good few knobs, the Kontrol D2 looks to be perfect for browsing the Traktor library, getting down and dirty with the remix decks, taking control of effects and plenty more.

We’ll bring you more Traktor Kontrol D2 news when we get it, but for now, if you want a few more thoughts and opinions, head on over to djworx or createdigitalmusic for some fairly thorough discussion.
