«  Traktor Kontrol Z2 Review »

Published on 01/03/14 at 01:35
Native Instruments introduces here his first mixer "solid" which has balanced XLR outputs very good quality.

No mixer rack.

It is possible to use the table as a Z2 independently mix. To do this, the Z2 has for Bands A and B 2 line inputs "physical" or 2 phono "physical" or 2 sources Traktor "logical".

On each slice, these inputs are selectable with a switch to PHONO / LINE / TRAKTOR entry "DJM" type which is located on the top of 2 slices. 2 decks C and D are themselves controlled by knobs located at the left ends (channel C) and right (D channel) mixer.

Note that these two "slices" are not routable on them in Traktor to control decks C and D (ie virtual) software (remix decks / sample decks)

Both absent on an output S2 / S4 here is a real plus. A 2 port USB hub allows you to connect 2x CDJ's in HID or your X1 or F1 mode.
FLUX functions and MACRO FX are very impressive! A real plus in your mix :-)

UTILIZATION

Overall, the hardware is very good, however we may regret the hard point always present on rotary (ditto on S2 / S4 ... matter of habit in NI)

We are dealing here with a dedicated controller to Traktor Scratch Pro (minimum version 2.6 to support the Z2), the software license is included in the box.

SOUNDS

The interaction with the software is perfect.

No breath.
Effective equalization.

OVERALL OPINION

Very good material, recommend if you are "Traktorien" and looking for a mix of quality, versatile and ergonomic.
