FUTURE-FORWARD DECK CONTROL
TRAKTOR KONTROL D2 delivers portable, touch-and-see deck control designed for cutting-edge performance with TRAKTOR PRO 2. A full-colour display and touch-sensitive controls deliver responsive workflow for the uncompromising DJ.
The high-res display on the D2 brings your music to life in living colour. Browse tracks, effects, and adjust filter values directly on the hardware. Your workflow is never interrupted – visually fine-tune and set beatgrids on a running track as it is appears on the display. The D2 keeps your focus on the music – not on your laptop.
A NEW WAY TO PLAY
Imagine workflow as effortless as instinct. Touch-sensitive knobs and faders activate TRAKTOR views and functions on an ultra-crisp full-colour display, keeping you in the moment – and connected with your crowd. Cue, nudge, or get creative controlling effects and loop sizes – the D2’s LED-guided touch strip lets you get physical.
Finally, a deck that understands your every move. TRAKTOR KONTROL D2’s features work together to enhance your skills and set your creativity in motion.
Touch-sensitive knobs respond to activate the Browse View, plus filter, pitch, and effect parameters on the display – keeping you in full control even in the heat of the night.
TRAKTOR KONTROL D2’s smart views and pop-up panels deliver dynamic visual feedback that’s more than meets the eye. Browse your library, monitor effects, improvise on the fly, and more at the touch of a button – and directly within view.
Instantly access and explore your music collection right from the D2 in Browse View.
Adjust grids on the fly with the Beatgrid View when a track needs fine tuning.
All FX chain parameters show instantly when the FX panel is triggered by an FX knob.
Simultaneously view and mix with all four parts of a Stem* file as waveforms.
Colour-coded Remix Sets’ samples and loops are all visible from the display in Remix View.
Freeze View instantly slices a track in eight parts for deconstructing on the fly with the performance pads.
Pop-up panels let you monitor and tweak track parameters like BPM, key, and filter instantly.
Tracks are ready to hit the dancefloor – anytime. The Beatgrid View instantly shows your grids on the display for easy editing directly from the D2. You can even set a new track’s beatgrid in real time from the first play for when time’s too short to prep your new favourite.
Trigger cue points and loops with colour-coded pads for instant creative editing. The colours match different hot-cue types for easy recognition. Take a snapshot from a running track using the Freeze Button and slice it up with the performance pads. Or activate Flux Mode to juggle hot-cues for spontaneous re-editing in time – every time.
Let the crowd hear your signature sound – and your personality. Trigger sounds from the performance pads and mix them in with the deck faders. Capture loops from a running track in perfect sync and layer them for advanced track edits on the fly.
TRAKTOR KONTROL D2 is the first Stems-ready deck. The four touch-sensitive performance faders and knobs instantly correspond to each stem part, ready for mixing, EQing, or adding effects to individual elements. The display immediately switches to the Stem View when a Stem file* is loaded onto a deck.
LIVE REMIXING AND BEYOND
Touch-responsive Remix Deck controls unlock the door to creativity – and your signature sound. Intuitively mix in sounds with 4+4 channel Remix Deck faders. Plus, live-capture and trigger your own samples and loops using the 8 colour-coded performance pads.
Or explore mixing with Stems* – an open file format coming soon that introduces multi-channel mixing with different musical elements of a track. TRAKTOR KONTROL D2 is Stem-ready – among the first DJ controllers of its kind to offer mixing possibilities with the very DNA of your music.
BUILT FOR THE ROAD
Pack-up and set-up in no time. TRAKTOR KONTROL D2 was designed for enhanced deck control while on the road. The compact, rugged, and lightweight build makes the D2 ideal for heavy touring – and your busy schedule.
Rubber-padded foldable feet raise the D2 to standard mixer height, or at an angle for performance comfort. And additional USB ports on the rear panel plus an included power supply splitter cable let you chain two units together quickly and easily when hustling from gig to gig.
DESIGNED FOR TRAKTOR SOFTWARE
TRAKTOR KONTROL D2 is built for seamless control of the included TRAKTOR PRO 2 – the DJ software chosen by countless professionals worldwide. Get in-depth control of your music with up to four software decks, a customisable interface, and advanced track library management.
Designed for enhanced DJ performance while on the road, TRAKTOR KONTROL D2 seamlessly fuses hardware and software for a truly multi-sensory experience.
