Native Instruments TRAKTOR Kontrol S8

  • Overview
  • Tech Specs


The Native Instruments TRAKTOR KONTROL S8 is an all-in-one combination 4-channel stand-alone mixer, professional audio interface, and DJ controller for TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO software. It improves upon the original with a streamlined workflow using the controller's dual built-in high-res displays, knobs, faders, and LED guided touch-sensitive strip controls.

The high-resolution displays allow you to browse tracks, see track info, see the track's vector waveform, access remix decks, as well as effect and filter values. The controller has 4+4 channel remix deck faders for live capture and triggering of your own samples and loops using the device's 16 color-coded performance pads.

The integrated audio interface provides 24-bit 48 kHz resolution and enables connection to turntables, CDJs, and other musical equipment for operation in TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO and stand-alone modes. Master outputs are provided on RCA and XLR connectors and 1/4" booth outputs enable connecting the controller to a club sound system.
