The Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S5 is the all new, portable, Stems-ready, pro 4-channel DJ System. The S5 DJ controller boasts an original, touch sensitive, high resolution, full colour display adding to the DJ experience and enabling that music connection from the DJ to the crowd. The innate hands-on work flow allows creativity to know no bounds! The compact controller is all that is needed when DJing and is robust enough to travel around the globe.
4+4 REMIX DECK CONTROLS
The Traktor Kontrol S5 also consists of 4+4 Remix Deck controls with 16 colour coded pads useful for activating samples and cue points. Also featured are performance controls where tracks can be sliced, frozen and remixed and a touch-sensitive interface where panels, pop-up views, FX, playback, BPM and filter can be activated. If the above was not enough the Kontrol S5 comes with the renowned Traktor Pro 2 DJ software where there is primary control over the dynamic new Stem Decks.
In addition to the above there are two customisable FX units with over 30 studio quality effects plus Macro FX, built-in audio interface which is club-ready resulting in 24-bit/48kHz of clear, pure sound, AUX input with mic preamp and a separate line input for another piece of equipment and finally an XLR/RCA master and ¼ inch booth outputs.
ENHANCE YOUR MIXING WITH STEMS
Until now, DJ mixing relied on adjusting and manipulating overall volume, EQ and effects for an entire track. With the innovative Stems, comprehensive multi-channel mixing of a track’s individual musical elements now becomes possible.
Create instant mash-ups, acappellas track edits and more by implementing different Stem parts in and out of the mix. You can also add effects to the vocals, leads, guitar and leave the rest of the track dry for example; this will create a whole different vibe and add originality to your performance.

Quality Customer Service Price Value
Great piece of kit from Native Instruments & priced pretty fairly too. This is an upgrade for me from the S2 MK1 & so far it ticks all the boxes. (Posted on 17/12/2016)
