Best online purchase experience ive had. Received my new S2 within 2 days of ordering it. I will definitely be returning to sweet water for the rest of my music equipment purchases. The candy doesn't hurt either
This thing blew me away. It's great.
Awesome machine a very low prize. I sincerelly recommend it.
I have been using the product the day I have received it and all I can say is it is AWESOME. I would highly recommend the S2 to anyone, experienced or amateurs alike who is looking for simplicity, portability and at the same time having a decent controller that is competitive, has the professional look and a capable controller. Not to mention the mappings for it are increasingly becoming available like its older sibling the S4. Also, its tight integration with the Traktor Pro 2 software without added mapping will not make you think twice about this product. Do your research, compare it others and you'll know what I mean.
if you're a dj on the go or just a dj as a hobby and want a pro mixer with u always, either for clubs or small friends parties, this is the mixer for u, specially if using with Traktor!! its beautiful, gorgeous, charming and sounds amazing!!
has everything u will ever need!! it's a must buy!! :)
Fantastic Controller for the price point
Traktor is the leader no doubt
S2 is a compact unit with lots of seamless, portable possibilities.
Not a standalone and no inputs but with Traktor PRO included you are good to go!
For the price this takes care of many things. Audio is perfect and response is quick. Easy to learn and easy to use. Very solid and strong equipment. Used almost every weekend and has lasted a really long time.
My first controller purchase was a Numark Mixtrack Pro because i didn't want to spend more than $250 on my first controller. Next, I tried out all of the different DJ software options. Upon deciding that I liked Traktor Pro the best (and the price was lowered by Traktor) I decided that the Mixtrack could not handle all the features in Traktor Pro even with additional mapping of the controller.
I then purchased the Traktor Kontrol S2 and it can handle all the features that the Traktor Pro software has to offer. I guess it is really a benefit to buy the hardware and software from the same company. I now have more fun DJ'ing and it is much easier.
My advise would be that if you plan to use Traktor software, get a Traktor controller.
I always count on NI to deliver quality gear. I purchased this as a complete novice to software gear. I spent a few hours toying around with the Kontrol S2, and at first became a bit frustrated the handling of the jogwheels etc. The plug and play of the S2 was simply a breeze. After a few hours of become familiar with the jog-wheel pressure points and became pretty at ease with the S2. The scratching, as well as the control of the jog-wheel became second nature and before I new it I was scratching, cutting, and mixing like I was on my old 1200's. This is a must have for a multitude of dj styles, whether bedroom, hobbyist, or pro performing, I can see my self pulling this little piece of wonder out and letting lose! Thank you NI, and Sweetwater for introduction me into the future of DJing!
The S2 is an awesome controller that is simple enough for most basic dj's to use without a whole lot of learning curve. It is missing some of the features of the S4 but at it's price point is more than worth the money! Insanely fun to use, built to last, and comes with the full blown software you need.
NI will release software updates that will still have BUGS! Their computer geeks need to be a little more precise w/ their programming or you may find yourself at a gig with a rig. ...just sayin'.
