  • Dr.Alban

    I don´t give a sheit if it´s compatible for IOS, we´re Djs not Mickey Mouse.

  • Fabio Lopes

    I have the “old” Audio 2 soundcard.
    Can I use it with iPad like in the “new” version?
    Where can I get the cord to connect the audio 2 to iPad?
    Thanks!

    The Audio 2 DJ was the first iteration of this 2-channel DJ interface, but then it was rebranded the Traktor Audio 2, which has been on sale for a while. Until now and the Mk2 Traktor Audio 2 comes out with changes of USB and audio connector size and the inevitable iOS capability.

    The question for me is: Could NI have just upgraded the firmware of the Traktor Audio 2 Mk1 to make it iOS-ready?
    Maybe not. Or maybe they just wanted to inject “new” hardware into their product line.

    P.S. I’m not as bitter as I might sound, it’s a good new product (if the old one is anything to go by).

    i was looking at one of these when it was released last year for my 12yr old daughter’s ableton set up. it’s a decent entry level ASIO supported sound card at a very reasonable price.

    • Anski

      The fact that your 12-year-old has an Ableton setup makes me want to have kids.

      • Oddie O’Phyle

        to be fair she lives with the ex-wife and has my old live7 account with my old launchpad and her pick of a UC-33e or the BCR-2000. i share my maschine account with my 15 year old whom lives with me. the one thing that i was left with after years of warehouse parties was the music that i now share with my kids. even though their music preferences may differ from mine it’s nice to encourage creativity where and when you can.

    Can someone with access to the specifications of the older model confirm if the change in frequency response (20hz to 20khz +/- 1.4db) makes the new model better? 10hz to 40khz doesn’t say anything if we don’t know the flactuation in db…

    30-pin connector. Really?

      And what about the iphone 5 up users ?

      • Garrett Cox

        its probably easier to go 30-pin cable to lightning dock, than lightning cable to 30-pin dock. they have adapters available.

    • Chaser720

      Haha. iOS7 compatible but… we aren’t giving you the cord for any new apple device.

  • MAMware

    thanks for pointint out the diferences

    Wasn’t this product released back in October 2013? Or is this a Mk3? It seems to me that NI is re-announcing it, just to get attention… And so far it seems to be working.

    • Ezmyrelda

      It’s just a commercial.. I believe what’s being advertised here is the full ios compatibility.

      • Oddie O’Phyle

        pretty sure it had iOS7 issues when it was released, this would be them making noise because the bugs are worked out.

    • Dan White

      It was originally announced in November of last year, but as far as I know it wasn’t really rolled out into stores until early this year.

      Mainly making this post to actually point out some of the real audio differences and let people know that it’s actually available now.

  • Ezmyrelda

    While I think it’s great that it has support for iphone and ipad, I honestly can’t see using only an iphone as an interface if you’re going to plug in a proper soundcard.. Z1 makes much more sense in this case… If they found a way to split the lightning connection and allow both a soundcard and a midi controller.. that would be something..

    But for $99 dollars you really can’t beat it for an absolute backup card if something should go wrong.

    • Mister36

      Camera Connection Kit and (powered) USB hub?

      • Ezmyrelda

        Sounds good… Unfortunately it’s not supported in software for NI products.. But yeah.. I’ve seen people do similar with other cards and controllers.. Usually with a lot of caveats though.

  • Rudi-J

    I have recently bought it. Works nice on my pc where i use it to input sound from maschine into traktor, but on ipad 3 with ios 7.0.6 and latest version of traktor DJ I get annoying artefacts on main out and monitor out. Cant’t figure out what i am doing wrong here….

    • Ezmyrelda

      Can you tell if they are cable artifacts or software dropouts? maybe try closing every other running background app..

      • Rudi-J

        Thanks for the advise. The usb cable is the one they shipped (looks flawless). I did the test with headphones that work nice when connected directly to the iPAD. The artefact i get with the audio 2 is a harsh distorted very loud rythmic clickering.
        Anyway upgrading to IOS 7.1 is my final hope – however the IT guys back in our company told us not to upgrade yet as they found issues with our enterprise apps.
        Will update on this later on.
        But if it is IOS version, i wonder why there was no explicit warning issued by NI?

        • Oddie O’Phyle

          from native instruments web site… **Please make sure you’re using the latest version of TRAKTOR DJ – version 1.3.3 – and the latest version of iOS 7 – version 7.1.

          • Rudi-J

            Ach So!
            Thanks!

    • tr4gik

      Update to 7.1
