The gear kingpin Native Instruments has just dropped a bomb on us with an all new DJ controller specifically made for Traktor! The Traktor Kontrol S8 DJ Controller is an absolute beast, bringing us control over 4-channels and a seamless integration with their Scratch Pro software. The two LED’s on each side of the controller is crucial for those performing in terms of giving us some navigation control — Some are saying that ‘future DJ’s will no longer look at their laptop or computers’ — and although we think that could be the case, it all depends on your personal preference. With the S8, NI also bring us their new signature touch-sensitive knobs and faders, high-quality performance pads, some analog inputs and more. Let’s get into the Traktor Kontrol S8 in more detail.
