Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol Z2 Hybrid DJ Mixer

DJ craze dropped the ball earlier, when he was gifted a new Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol Z2 Hybrid mixer – and exposed it in a candid self portrait.  Well, it’s not a secret anymore.  Traktor has been busy finishing up the last minute changes to this mixer, and it actually looks different from many other offerings the company has been putting out thus far.


First off, it’s their first attempt at a true mixer – without the added jog wheels, and it the front face of it looks very clean and uncluttered, which hasn’t been the norm for NI.  It has its own built-in soundcard and a host of USB ports to integrate with controllers and Traktor.
