Native Instruments announced this morning that they’re dropping the Kontrol Z2‘s price for a February “Heavy Valentine” sales special – marked down about $200 (25%) to a new price of $599 / €599.
This becomes especially valuable to new Traktor users who don’t have a full version of the software yet, as the $599 pricetag includes a copy of Traktor Scratch Pro, timecode vinyl, and timecode CDs.
Of course the natural speculation is to wonder what the driving force behind the sale is. We don’t have any information about an upcoming product release, but Native Instruments does regularly do price drops in advance of a new product launch. Maybe the four-channel Kontrol Z4 that we predicted as being a potential new mixer this year might be a reality.
