I'm Scott Hobbs — a
Senior Product Designer based in Los Angeles

And here are some of the products I've designed

2017—2019

Traktor DJ 2

Traktor DJ 2 reconsidered the user experience of the original, with the goal of making authentic DJing accessible to more people. As Native Instruments' first truly cross-platform product, it laid the groundwork for the future of Traktor.

Coming soon

Wirepad

The wireframing sketchpad that you print yourself. Wirepad is an active project that is currently being tested with designers, and releasing soon.

2015—2016

iMaschine 2

iMaschine 2 introduced a new level of depth to mobile beatmaking—professional features from its desktop counterpart were brought to iPhone & iPad with simplified workflows.

I was interviewed by Evan Shamoon for XLR8R in 2015, where we discussed the design of the product.

2013—2014

Traktor DJ

Traktor DJ reimagined how DJ software works, for a touchscreen. Innovative interaction became central in creating an authentic DJ experience on iPad.

Traktor DJ was awarded App of the Year in 2013 in multiple countries, and runner-up in the US.

2011—2012

Traktor Kontrol Z2

Kontrol Z2 is a DJ mixer-controller hybrid — it aimed to unify the best of analog and digital equipment into a singular & cohesive experience. The Z2 is still used by some of the world's best turntablist DJs today.

2007 — 2008

Attigo TouchTable

The Attigo Touchtable project set out to challenge the status quo of DJ technology — the interface introduced a new way to interact with music, while respecting the interaction patterns and workflow paradigms of traditional DJ equipment.
