TRAKTOR KONTROL S8 is designed for ultimate mixing with Stems – the open, multi-channel audio format for creative DJing. A Stem file contains a track split into four musical elements – bass, drums, vocals, and melody, for example.
Transition between elements stem-by-stem instead of using global volume and EQ control for an entire track. Or apply effects just to a specific stem. And to get really creative, swap elements across multiple decks – take the vocals from one track and mix it with the beat from another.
CONNECT WITH YOUR CROWD
Get physical with the music. Touch-sensitive knobs, faders, and LED-guided touch strips bring TRAKTOR software to life on vivid full-color displays, keeping you focused on performance – not on your laptop. The S8’s touch-and-see workflow means you connect with your music – and with your crowd.
Two high-res color displays put TRAKTOR software in plain sight. Browsing, track info, effect, and filter values come into view directly in front of you. Keep an eye on the running track’s ultra-crisp vector waveform. Or access Remix and Stem Decks in full view.
YOUR STYLE. YOUR SOUND.
For even more detailed track-editing on the fly, create your signature sound with responsive Remix Deck controls. Intuitively mix in sounds with the 4+4 channel performance faders . Plus, live capture and trigger your own samples and loops using the 16 color-coded performance pads.
Your style. Your sound. This is enhanced DJ performance.
