Native Instruments no longer exhibits at trade shows, but that hasn't stopped it hopping on the new-product-teasing bandwagon that's currently trundling through the industry. It's just released a close-up photo of a new Traktor controller that it has in the works via Twitter, and you can take a look at it to the right.
The most notable thing here is the grid of multi-coloured buttons, which leads us to suspect that this controller could be more about triggering loops/samples than mixing and scratching. We'd certainly expect it to be a slightly different proposition to Native Instruments (opens in new tab)' current X1, S4 and S2 models.
We're assuming we'll be told more soon, and when we are, we'll tell you, too.
