Native Instruments have just announced that they have updated their Traktor Kontrol X1 USB controller, which gives hands-on control over looping, syncing and effects across two of your Traktor decks. Although the Traktor Kontrol X1 Mk2 features a similar design to the original, there are a number of updates that make it more intuitive. The most obvious of these improvements is the touch-strip, which can be set to control a number of different parameters such as track position, pitchbend and FX.

With the resurgence of the original NYC House/Garage sound in the 21st century fuelled heavily by the likes of new faces such as Maya Jane Coles, Disclosure & Bicep, first generation production legends like Marc 'MK' Kinchen have recently resurfaced, sought after on remix and DJ duties by the 21st century house generation.
In the early nineties, Kinchen was responsible for seminal House classic 'Burning' and the crossover classic mix of Push the Feeling On and he has since gone on to produce for virtually everyone from Pitbull, Will Smith and Céline Dion (giving her the only Billboard Dance Chart placing of her career) & created the scores for hit movies such as "Sharks Tale".

The Traktor Kontrol Z2 isn't just your average two-channel DJ mixer... it features a number of controls (including two Remix channels) for interacting directly with the industry standard Traktor Pro 2 software (which also comes included with the mixer), meaning that you can work in a more creative way than ever, whilst still retaining your natural workflow. It even comes with two time coded vinyls, so if you already have turntables and a computer, the Z2 bundle gives you everything you need to make that leap into the digital DJing age.
If this way of working appeals to you then you're going to want to take notice of this.... this month only, you can save a whopping £160 on the Traktor Kontrol Z2 mixer and bag it for just £499 (usually £659)!

Although CDs are probably still the club DJs weapon of choice, more and more people are succumbing to the flexible temptations of software mixing. In fact, you will be hard pushed to find a club night where no DJs whatsoever mix off a laptop, and with this medium growing in popularity all the time, I doubt it will be long before laptops truly take over!
