The Native Kontrol S8's got more knobs and screens than we've ever seen on a DJ controller before but things don't get confusing. On using it we found that NI's experience with Maschine has delivered something similar for DJ's, powerful but completely intuitive. Browsing through your file folders, using the Remix Decks and full Waveform Displays let you know whats going on at all times.
Kontrol S8 comes ready-mapped for use with the revolutionary DJ file format - Stems. A Stem file contains a track split into four musical elements – bass, drums, vocals, and melody, for example. Transition between elements stem-by-stem instead of using global volume and EQ control for an entire track. Or apply effects just to a specific stem. And to get really creative, swap elements across multiple decks – take the vocals from one track and mix it with the beat from another.
