NI Releases Traktor Kontrol S4 Hardware/Software DJ Solution

| Product News

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.

In the video below, the company offers a very detailed promotional demo of how the software works.

Windows® XP (latest SP, 32 Bit), Vista®/Windows 7® (latest SP, 32/64 Bit), Pentium®/Athlon® XP @ 1.8 GHz OR Core™2/AMD X2, 2 GB RAM Mac OS X® 10.5 or higher, Intel® Core™Duo 1.66 GHz, 2 GB RAM USB 2.0 port, DVD drive, 6 GB free disk space for complete installation

Traktor Kontrol S4 is priced at US$999 and €899, and is available now.

wish they would make a controller like that with a jog well the size of a cdj 1000

I feel the same way. I am too used to Serato and my CDJ’s to make a change.
Things I don’t like about this unit. Faders for pitch are useless on a unit that can sync bpm’s.
The job wheels are too small.
It does not have an onboard mouse trackpad.

Things I do like. This is perfectly mapped from hardware to software.
The BPM syncs across audio and sample.
It has knobs for everything that I would want to use them for like efx, song loading, and parameters.

Either way, I wont spend a dime on anything unless it directly interfaces with Rane Serato Scratch Live.


Traktor should come out with a kontrol s2 with 2 channel mixer and no sample player or loop recorder using traktor pro so that its more affordable and to target entry to mid-level dj’s…
