Traktor Kontrol S2 is here!

So I've lately been asked by alot of new DJs and old DJs that want to get into the digital DJ scene what they should buy. The answer is pretty simple: Traktor Kontrol S4... That's untill today.
Traktor Kontrol S2 is the S4s little brother and is PERFECT for those who want to get into the digital DJing. My oh my what a product.

Price point of $599 with a full version of Traktor Pro 2 is pretty awesome and damn right unbeatable in the two deck class if you ask me.

It's small and versitile and for those of you now looking into trying out digital DJing... This is the one to buy. Offcause if your wallet is a little more founded you might want to go all out and get the S4.

I like the S4 layout and there is not very much that has changed. It's missing the filter knobs (but the filter effect can be found in the effects never the less).

Xtreme Mapping for Traktor

Even though the posibilities for mapping in Traktor is pretty large, the interface for creating the mappings are filled with alot of annoying quirks.

This tool is a stand alone application that is supposed to have fixed alot of the issues surounding the Traktor Pro 2 mapping interface, but to my surprise the software is only available for MAC.

WHAT?!! Please make this for PC as well!
And since I can't tell you anything more untill that happens;
