The Traktor Audio 2 MkII DJ Audio Interface is now iOS Ready

Native Instruments Traktor Audio 2 MkII

The pocket sized Traktor Audio 2 MkII audio interface for DJs has been upgraded to support iOS and is now plug-and-play with the iPad & iPhone.

It's a 24-bit / 48kHz interface with two 1/8 inch stereo outputs which the manufacturer, Native Instruments, bill as offering seamless track cueing and headphone monitoring with their leading DJ software Traktor PRO 2 and Traktor DJ, although it will work with most popular DJ software.

Traktor Audio 2 connects to your iPhone and iPad 1, 2, & 3 with a mini-USB (included with purchase) or 30-pin to USB cable - if you have an iPad 4 or above you'll need a 30-pin to Lightning adapter.

Here's Native Instruments' promo video which gives you a good idea of the size:

If you have upgraded to iOS version 7.1 you will now be able to seamlessly connect your iPad or iPhone running the latest version of Traktor DJ with Traktor Audio 2, and also Traktor Kontrol S4, S2, and Z1.


Although it can draw power via USB, you will probably want to buy the optional power supply unit otherwise you'd be likely to drain your batteries before you get through a gig. You'll also need it if you want your iOS device to output full volume, otherwise it will work in a power saving mode which outputs less sound.

More than just iOS

Traktor Audio 2 still works with Max OS X and Windows 7 & 8 computers - here are the system requirements:

Windows 7 or 8 - latest Service Pack, 32/64 Bit - 2.0 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo or AMD Athlon 64 X2, 2 GB RAM (4 GB recommended).
Mac OS X 10.7 or 10.8 - latest update - Intel Core 2 Duo, 2 GB RAM (4 GB recommended).
General - Monitor with 1024 x 768 screen resolution, USB 2.0, 1 GB free disc space, high-speed internet required.

Now Available In Stores

I noticed it's already available at zZounds and it should also now be available world-wide. The price is $99 / 99 € / £89 / ¥ 10,800.
