Native Instruments look like taking on the big boys in the hardware department with the release of their all-new DJ mixer, the Kontrol Z2. The Z2 not only controls Traktor 2, but is also a fully functional DJ mixer with inputs and outputs to control conventional turntables, CDJs or any external sound source.
The new Kontrol Z2 has all the regular features a DJ would expect in a club mixer, but a few additions that make it the essential hub for any DJs looking to use Traktor as the starting point of their set-up. The beauty of the new mixer is that it combines with Native’s other controllers to make a rather amazing modular DJ ‘live’ studio that promotes creative performance.
Check out 5xDMC Champion DJ Craze put the Z2 through its paces and keep an eye out for the full DJ Mag review coming soon.
