Traktor Kontrol S4 lets you connect with your tracks in entirely new ways: Not only do its motorised jog wheels spin and react to nudging, scratching, pitch-fading, and backspins, they transmit cue points, loop markers, and more direct to your fingertips. And with RGB LED rings and high-res colour displays keeping all the info you need front and centre in the booth, everything you need is right where you need it – so you’re free to focus on your mix.
Something you’ll want to touch: Meet Haptic Drive™ – new, motorised, touch-sensitive jog wheels that give you haptic feedback. They spin like vinyl, so you can nudge, stop, and spin them back however you want. Adjust the start/stop time and torque to match them to your mixing style.
The S4 MK3 offers three jog wheel operation styles:
Work within a layout that’s second nature. Trigger loops and samples, manipulate effects, and load tracks with dedicated controls. Blend your chops and cuts across four channels with super durable Carbon Protect faders. Adjust the crossfader curve and choose from different mixer EQ models to tailor everything to your own DJ style. Get your essential transport, deck, and tempo visualisation at a glance, with adaptive RGB light rings on each deck. Make sure you’re stopping the right track with different color coding when mixing on four channels. See which jog wheel mode you’re using, and get real-time feedback on how much you’re nudging or stalling the deck.
Two high-resolution displays keep your eyes on the mix as well as your ears. Easily see tempo, looping, track time, and waveform information, as well as Stem and Remix deck components. Open up a big filter and cut the bass, before switching decks and dropping a new kick without looking anywhere else. A good DJ set isn’t just about a thoughtful selection of tracks, but what happens between them. With the new Mixer FX, you can use just one knob to create instant buildups, breakdowns, and high-energy transitions to give the crowd a workout. Choose from eight effects and three smooth filters – from a tripped-out time gate, to delays, huge reverbs, and more.
There’s plenty of room for developing your very own setup, with a club-grade, 24-bit / 96-kHz audio interface that always keeps you sounding pristine. Use external inputs on each channel to mix audio from other sources, connect microphones, and monitor through a new booth output. Crate-diggers can hook up turntables to play their record store finds, as well as play digital tracks with DVS support.
