Traktor Kontrol S8: Out With the Old, In With the New

Much has changed in the DJ world since Native Instruments' introduction of the revolutionary Traktor Kontrol S4 in 2010. Now, Native Instruments has upped the ante offering an uber-upgrade for the USB jockey. Enter the Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S8 DJ Controller, a fully functional four-channel DJ mixer with Stem-ready remix decks and seamless integration with the included professional grade Traktor Scratch Pro 2 software.

High-Tech Upgrades

The Traktor Kontrol S8 Replaces traditional jog wheels with high-resolution color displays and a touch sensitive ribbon-strip for track navigation and virtual scratching. While the lack of jog wheels may be a turnoff for some traditional turntablists, remember that the S8 is a DVS-ready four-channel mixer out of the box and nearly any turntable or CDJ can provide digital vinyl simulation in absence of the jog wheels. An expanded sampler section has also been added which allows for fine-tuning of up to 4 samples per channel or Stems playback. With more control at your fingertips and vibrant color screens, you'll spend more time with the controller and less time staring at your computer screen.

Built-In Mixer

In addition to being the most boss DJ controller on the market, the Traktor Kontrol S8 also serves as a stand-alone 4-channel mixer. Connect up to four of your favorite turntables or CDJs and DJ from your media library like an old-school turntablist -- no computer required. Or sync with the included Traktor Scratch Pro 2 software for intuitive digital vinyl simulation (time-coded vinyls and CDs sold separately).

Stem-Ready

Native Instruments' latest innovation is like a dream come true for the digital DJ. Stems are a new open audio file format designed by Native Instruments to promote creative DJing. Unlike traditional audio formats which downmix the entire audio stream into a single audio track, Stems offer a four-track file format with independent, fully editable tracks for drums, bass, vocals, and melody -- it's like loading up a complete multitrack recording session from a single file with the press of a button. This new format allows DJs to solo, breakdown, and remix in new and innovative ways. More artists are getting on the Stems bandwagon every day so there's plenty of pro-grade remix sets to choose from, in addition to tons of free sample packs available direct from Native Instruments.

Features:

- Four-channel stand-alone USB DJ mixer for PC or Mac
- Per channel controls knobs for gain, 3-band EQ, and filter plus FX selector and volume faders

Native Instruments Traktor S8 Controller

Experience an innovative 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. Touch-sensitive controls and high-res displays deliver DJ workflow that is truly cutting-edge.

Integral to bringing TRAKTOR KONTROL S8's touch-and-see workflow to life are two high-resolution displays that respond to touch-sensitive knobs. Tracks appear on the displays as stunningly crisp vector waveforms while an array of key views and pop-up panels instantly activate when the corresponding control is touched. The Browse Knob for example, triggers the Browse View for track selection directly from the controller. When activated by performance knobs, Performance Panels appear over track waveforms to view and modify BPM, key, filter, or individual effect values. The FX Panel reveals current parameters of up to two TRAKTOR FX units when an FX knob is touched.

The deck sections on TRAKTOR KONTROL S8 were designed for enhanced Remix Decks integration and live performance features that extend creative workflow beyond current standards and empower pro DJs to develop their own trademark sound. When the Remix Deck View is active, samples and loops all become accessible in full screen on the displays for mixing with the eight dedicated Remix Deck faders. Eight color-coded pads per deck can trigger sounds while in Remix View, juggle cue points, or rearrange a playing track in Freeze View on the fly for boundless live improvisation.

TRAKTOR KONTROL S8 also delivers increased hands-on editing functions for spontaneous track adjustments or further creativity. The Beatgrid View enables instant fine-tuning of a playing track's beatgrid when adjustment is needed. Enhanced Remix Decks workflow allows live capturing of loops from a running deck for instant sampling. And two LED-guided touch strips provide motion-sensitive pitch bending, track seeking, vinyl scratch emulation, and keep track of phase in dark environments.

TRAKTOR KONTROL S8 not only raises the bar in DJ performance features, but also integrates a comprehensive 24-bit/48kHz audio interface designed for expansive connectivity. Four analog RCA inputs with phono and mic preamps allow connection of turntables, CDJs or other analog gear. XLR and RCA master output and a 1/4 inch booth output provide versatile connectivity with any sound system. And MIDI In/Out allows external gear like MASCHINE to sync with TRAKTOR via MIDI clock.

Adding to its workflow innovations, the S8 boasts a mixer section with enhanced pro features. Four mixer channels can also work in stand-alone mode when TRAKTOR Mode buttons are deactivated -- making DJ switchovers or mixed analog/TRAKTOR SCRATCH usage possible with the touch of one button. The fader section debuts unique wear-resistant faders, which prevents debris from damaging the fader's carbon strips -- prolonging fader life, and maintaining proper function at all times.

Fueling the technology behind TRAKTOR KONTROL S8 is the included TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO 2* software. An innovation in and of itself, TRAKTOR PRO is the award winning DJ software used by countless professionals. Four software decks, over 30 studio-grade effects, and powerful advanced features for creative looping and cueing have provided DJs all over the world with inspiring and customizable DJ possibilities.

Overall: The S8 build quality is amazing , whether you want to use it as a controller or with cdjs or dvs or as a stand alone mixer the S8 is what u want . The effects r kick ass and the screens r clear , navigating through your tracklists is easy without even looking at ur laptop. Traktor software and mbp integration is seamless . Getting used to having no jogwheels or pitchfaders is not a big deal at all. The stems decks r very cool. I'm very satisfied with my S8. It is big so check out the dimensions to make sure S8 is for you.

Overall: it stated out as a great controller especially since i don't use jog wheels but then the trouble started when i turn it on you start to hear a weird sound and it takes 10 to 20 mins to come on....after researching found this has happened to several people...contacted NI for support and instead of them wanting me to send it back to get fixed or offering me some money for the unit ......THEY SEND ME A INVOICE TO BUY ANOTHER ONE SO I CAN SPEND MORE MONEY ON THIS UNIT.... I SEE WHY PIONEER IS THE STANDARD!!!
