Hardware Details

ERGONOMIC AND INTUITIVE

TRAKTOR KONTROL Z2’s layout builds on familiar standards for uninterrupted workflow from the start. A spacious control surface with faders, 3-band EQ section and dedicated filter knobs per channel are all right where you need them.

The Kontrol sections beside each channel feature Macro FX knobs for instant, one-knob effects control designed for expressive build-ups, break-downs, and more.

And four color-coded trigger buttons plus the loop encoder on either side let you deconstruct tracks on-the-fly with seamless creative control.

PREMIUM CONSTRUCTION

An aircraft-grade aluminium chassis makes TRAKTOR KONTROL Z2 durable and resistant to wear in demanding environments. High-grade knobs, buttons, push encoders, and Innofaders™ deliver accurate, fluid control behind the decks.

Backlit buttons provide precise visual feedback in even the darkest clubs. And the built-in, powered USB hub adds connectivity for two add-on controllers like TRAKTOR KONTROL F1 or X1 – freeing-up laptop ports and expanding possibilities.

AUDIO INTERFACE

The Z2 offers comprehensive connectivity designed for diverse DJ setups. Four analog inputs with phono and mic preamps allow for connecting turntables, CDJs, and other gear.

Both XLR and RCA master and booth outputs connect the Z2 to any industry-standard sound system.

Plus, a low-noise power supply and a premium 24-bit/48kHz integrated soundcard deliver clarity and power in one blow.

Software Features

TRAKTOR PRO 3

From head-bobbing bar beats to midnight main-room experimentation. With intuitive and powerful tools for soundscape exploration, TRAKTOR PRO 3 makes any mix possible.

SYNC THAT NEVER SKIPS A BEAT

For mixing samples, loops, using Flux Mode and more. Hit Sync, and TRAKTOR keeps the elements of your mix perfectly matched. This is especially good for more advanced techniques like triggering additional loops and samples, or for syncing external gear with your TRAKTOR setup via MIDI or Ableton Link.

LOOP, JUMP, AND JUGGLE

Really make a mix your own. Use pads on TRAKTOR hardware to juggle Hotcues or to jump between drops and breaks to chop and screw your tracks. Loop and move encoders let you quickly re-edit in the heat of the moment. With TRAKTOR’s industry-leading beatsync, jumps and loops are always completely seamless.

FULL FX SUITE

From dubby drums to reverb-rinsed vocals – effects in TRAKTOR let you create soundscapes that are out of this world. Dial in over 40 customizable Deck FX that range from subtle beatshifts to all-out sonic destruction. We freshly developed new Mixer FX for easy-to-use modulation that sounds huge.

TRAKTOR SCRATCH BUILT IN

TRAKTOR PRO 3 includes scratch functionality out of the box, meaning you can use timecode vinyl on your decks, or timecode CDs in CDJs, to control TRAKTOR. Because the KONTROL Z2 has a an integrated audio interface, you can just hook up your turntables, throw on some timecode vinyl, fire up TRAKTOR and jump right into a mix session.

MIRROR YOUR MIXING STYLE

If you only need two decks and nothing else, you can set up TRAKTOR to show you just that. If you’re running an external input, two track decks and a Remix Deck with samples, you can customize TRAKTOR to show that too. Make the interface fit your style, so you always see everything you need at a glance.

PRO-GRADE SOUND

TRAKTOR’s audio engine is the result of almost two decades of development, and TRAKTOR PRO 3 sees further improvement with the integration of Elastique 3 time stretching, and an improved master limiter. It’s a sound that has filled everything from house-party speaker setups to large club systems and festival rigs.

CLEVER TRACK COLLECTION

An effective track collection is one you can use without thinking, so you can keep your head in the mix. Quickly find the tracks you know will work the crowd by structuring your library in a way that suits you. Filter by track type to find Remix Sets and Stems tracks easily, and create preparation lists for smooth DJ sets.

REMIX DECKS AND STEMS

Shift your set from DJing into the realm of live performance. Load one-shot samples or loops within a Remix Deck and trigger them to expand the sonic palette of your mix. Stems let you individually work with parts of a track for unique and spontaneous reworks – use the vocal stem and pair it with a new break to create a re-edit the crowd won’t hear anywhere else.
