  • 1Description

The Native Instruments TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 MK2 is designed for DJs and electronic music performers that use TRAKTOR DJ or TRAKTOR PRO 2 software. The updated controller now features aircraft-grade aluminum jog wheel plates, improved fader reliability, RGB color coded buttons for visual feedback when triggering cue points, samples, and loops, as well as full support for the iPad and iPhone TRAKTOR DJ application.

The unit consists of a three components: a software controller that mirrors the control interface of TRAKTOR PRO 2 DJ software, a 4-channel mixer plus loop recording with 3-band EQ, filter knobs, gain, and two FX sends per channel, and a Cirrus Logic AD/DA audio interface with 24-bit 96/kHz resolution.

Beat Detection

    Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S4 reviews

    TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 MK2 is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid What I like: *Seamless integration with Traktor Pro *Standard, familiar hardware layout *It has depth, and so the expansion possibilities to a more sophisticated setup are there What I wish for: *More I/O options (really I'm talking about just the Outs...I thought there's room in the back for more)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best controller alive I've used dozens of controllers and have to say the s4 mk2 is the best of the best. Looking forward to see what NI comes out in the next few years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic tool, fun to use. There isnt much to be said that has not been said in other reviews. The hardware and software work fantastically with each other, and are very easy to use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best thing ever happened to EDM If you know TRAKTOR, thats the ultimate machined, Just get the review anywhere in the internet, I can just say that I'm using Pioneer for HipHop and Traktor for EDM and House music with 2 F1 and 2 X1, it's just more than I need. Nothing can beat the setup for this price or even double, A must have for everyone. Oh yeah! I got it from B&H the 1st day it just came out. Got shipped to my manhattan apartment by the next day.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loven it So far everything with my S4 MK2 has been great.. Easy to use but a lot to learn.. I will say there is some issues with running her on Win8.. Not the S4's fault though.. If you look around on the net lots of people are having problems with a few windows drivers.. Waiting for my Macbook pro to come in.. I am running her with Maschine synced to Traktor..
