Serato and Native Instruments have both weighed in with huge discount offers this weekend on their software, to celebrate Thanksgiving in the US (but you can grab the offers anywhere…). Currently you can grab Serato DJ and Serato Video at 30% off and Traktor at 50% off.
We’ve got our Traktor Kontrol S8 here on the workbench and will be writing our review next week, but in the meantime here are five things, big and small, we’ve noticed about it that may not be apparent to you from looking at the photos. (And no we’ve not got past the “Vegas mode” flashing lights mode yet to actually use the thing. These are just first impressions…)
Native Instruments officially announced today that its newest flagship controller, the Traktor Kontrol S8, ships from Oct 31. Straying from the norm, the Traktor Kontrol S8 does away with jogwheels and platters completely, dropping in a variety of controls in their place as well as two high-resolution, full colour displays.
