The Kontrol S8 breaks down barriers by allowing you to finally tuck that laptop away and focus on the music. 2 razor sharp screens show you track info/wave forms, remix deck sets and allow you to browse your library and load tracks: All without touching your computer. Lot's of other controllers have tried to make this claim in the past, but Native Instruments has finally perfected an intuitive interface for the demanding professional. Speaking of professional, the expanded mixer section now includes a filter on/off button to make sure that you don't accidentally cut out end of your signal out by leaving the filter slightly open or closed AND analog phono/line inputs on each channel, making the S8 a fully functioning DJ mixer as well as controller. The removal of the jog wheels is sure to have many DJ's screaming foul, but we think you'll find the touch strip technology that NI has implemented extremely tactfull and effective for nudging beats forward and backward for the perfect mix. Another huge addition has been a convergence of the F1 remix deck features directly into the S8, giving you four sample channels per side which can be independently processed and triggered infinitely expanding the realm of possibilities!
