Native Instruments Release Flagship Controller
Digital DJing leader Native Instruments have announced a new flagship controller, the Kontrol S8. The move comes as a natural evolution to NI’s range – having started with the immensely successful DJ booth “extras” the Kontrol X1 & F1 before evolving to entire set-up substitutes the Kontrol S2 & S4.
Controversially, the S8 features no jog-wheel – instead the unit boosts dual screens – hinting at a sample driven, Maschine inspired layout. The future of DJing? Or confirmation that the days of track-to-track mixing are officially coming to a close?
We’ll let you know when we review!
