Native Instruments announced Monday the release of Traktor Kontrol S4, an integrated hardware and software DJ solution aimed at pro DJs. The package includes a dual turntable control surface along with a dedicated version of Traktor Pro called Traktor Pro S4, as seen in the photo below.
The hardware control surface has several DJ-specific functions that all tie into Traktor Pro S4, including looping, cueing, effects control and track browsing. A feature called Loop Recording also allows DJs to sample a loop direct from their own live mix.
