Kontrol Z2 Innofaders: The Inside Scoop

With a lot of questions surrounding Native Instrument’s new Kontrol Z2 mixer, many DJs were concerned about the quality of the Innofaders that were ported to fit on the crossfaders and upfaders.  For those who don’t know, innofader technology rivals that of Rane’s TTM-57 crossfader, which uses capacitance technology instead of carbon contacts.

Elliot Marx from audio innovate stated that the mini Innofaders that were used in the crossfader were set loose, while the upfaders were given a bit more tension for volume control.  Both faders still retain the capacitance technology and are adjustable when nursed the right way.
