Native Instruments' Stems have been out for a while now and some DJs have already started incorporating them into their sets. DJ Shiftee also took advantage of the added hardware support that is included in the D2 controllers. His routine blends old and new hardware that shows a new way to play with Traktor's Stem Decks.
Today we've got the full details on the Kontrol Z2 mixer teased a few weeks ago by Native Instruments. As many of you know, I'm a big believer in standalone mixers for serious DJing, so it was a pleasant surprise to find out NI was making a dedicated Traktor mixer. In today's exclusive video, I walk you through the Z2 and show you some of my favorite features of the mixer and of the new Traktor 2.6 that I used in NI's launch video that was just released.
