Stems is a completely new way to DJ. A Stem file is an open, multi-channel audio file that contains a track split into four musical elements – bass, drums, vocals, and melody, for example. With each element available independently, you can mix in ways that just weren’t possible until now.
TRAKTOR KONTROL S5 delivers essential control for Stems. Create instant on-the-fly edits, mash-ups, a cappellas, and more with hands-on creative control. And get detailed with your effects – add reverb to the vocals, and leave the rest of the track dry, for example.
Get the crowd in motion from your first set with TRAKTOR KONTROL S5. The fusion of core TRAKTOR technology and the S5’s advanced touch-and-see workflow creates a brand new, yet familiar mixing experience – total TRAKTOR control designed for the modern DJ.
The robust touch-sensitive knobs control TRAKTOR software on two vivid high-res displays – so you stay focused on the mix. And LED-guided touch strips provide precise, natural-feeling pitch bend control to make you feel right in your element.
TRAKTOR KONTROL S5’s two ultra-crisp high-res displays put TRAKTOR PRO 2 software in plain sight directly on the hardware.
Browse for the next track, monitor effects, see Stems play as four stacked waveforms, and more all in vivid color. Just touch a knob and watch TRAKTOR respond on the displays – smart views, pop-up panels, filters, and effects values are instantly revealed by touch-sensitive knobs.
TRAKTOR KONTROL S5 features creative tools that empower your unique style when playing tracks. Slice, rearrange, and beatjump in perfect time with Hotcue, Flux, or Freeze modes using the 16 color-coded pads.
And for detailed remixing on-the-fly, explore the power of Remix Decks. Deconstruct and reconstruct your tracks at will using the performance pads, and create your signature sound.
