Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S5 DJ Controller
Stems is a completely new way to DJ. A Stem file is an open, multi-channel audio file that contains a track split into four musical elements – bass, drums, vocals, and melody, for example. With each element available independently, you can mix in ways that just weren’t possible until now.
TRAKTOR KONTROL S5 delivers essential control for Stems. Create instant on-the-fly edits, mash-ups, a cappellas, and more with hands-on creative control. And get detailed with your effects – add reverb to the vocals, and leave the rest of the track dry, for example.
CONNECT WITH YOUR CROWD
- Get the crowd in motion from your first set with TRAKTOR KONTROL S5. The fusion of core TRAKTOR technology and the S5’s advanced touch-and-see workflow creates a brand new, yet familiar mixing experience – total TRAKTOR control designed for the modern DJ.
The robust touch-sensitive knobs control TRAKTOR software on two vivid high-res displays – so you stay focused on the mix. And LED-guided touch strips provide precise, natural-feeling pitch bend control to make you feel right in your element.
CREATIVE PERFORMANCE FEATURES
TRACK PREPARATION - Seamless iTunes library integration and powerful automatic beat detection means tracks are ready to hit the dancefloor anytime. And you can adjust a track’s beatgrid in real-time on the S5 - the Beatgrid View instantly reveals your grids for easy editing directly from the displays.
HOTCUES AND FLUX MODE - Trigger cue points and loops with color-coded pads for instant creative editing. The colors match different hotcue types for easy recognition. And with Flux Mode, you can juggle hotcues while maintaining playback position, for spontaneous re-editing in time – every time.
IMPROVISING WITH FREEZE MODE - Take a snapshot from a running track using the Freeze Button and slice it up. A loop appears on the deck display ready for you to rearrange using the performance pads.
LIVE REMIXING - Access the power of TRAKTOR’s Remix Decks directly from the S5. Trigger sounds with the performance pads and see it all in Remix View on the high-res displays. And to build your own creative arsenal, capture loops from a running track in perfect sync, and layer them for advanced track edits on the fly.
