Building on the enormous success of their Traktor software and DJ controllers, Native Instruments introduces the Traktor Kontrol S4 MKII. The next-gen S4 MKII encompasses all of the features that even the most discerning DJ could want: four decks, two high-resolution jog wheels, a high-quality interface, intuitive effects, and a powerful mixer section. In addition, the Traktor Kontrol S4 has the ability to integrate analog turntables, CD players and microphones, along with the loop recorder function which acts as a fifth deck for re-sampling and looping over the main output. Just add your laptop running the included Traktor Pro 2 software, and you'll have a fully professional DJ rig that's ready to shake the club.

What's New? Traktor Kontrol S4 MKII vs. Traktor Kontrol S4

This next-generation S4 MKII upgrades the original S4 with a two-tone design and improved fader reliability. You'll see new, heavier aircraft-grade aluminum jog wheels, with a long-wearing silicone braking system to replace the magnetic braking system found in the original S4. The S4 MKII's controls reflect the updates in Traktor software, with four brighter, backlit color-coded buttons, and a Flux mode button for each deck. Plus, the MKII release is compatible with the Traktor DJ iPad/iPhone app. You'll even find that the S4 MKII's rear outputs deliver hotter levels and a wider dynamic range. Basically, Native Instruments has taken an industry-favorite controller, and made it even more "pro" with the MKII release.

Watch Mad Zach and the Traktor S4 and S2 in action:


Intuitive and Powerful Mixer Section

The Traktor Kontrol S4 MKII features a world-class professional mixer section as its central control hub, boasting four stereo channels each with their own level fader, high-quality 3-band EQ, and sweepable filter controls. The crossfader is one of the most important parts of a quality DJ mixer, and Native Instruments has ensured that only the finest components went into the S4's super-smooth crossfader. The controls of the S4's crossfader are so precise, movement as small as 1/4 the width of a human hair can be detected.

Analog Inputs for Turntables and More

Have a pair of analog turntables? No need to get rid of them -- the Traktor S4 Kontrol features two analog stereo inputs with both phono and microphone preamps, allowing the connection of turntables, CD players, microphones or any other external audio gear. This means that the Kontrol S4 acts as the control hub to all of your audio resources. The S4 doesn't want to make any of your gear obsolete, it wants to incorporate it into your process, so you -- the music creator -- have the widest palette of sound tools to choose from.

Remix and Rearrange on the Fly

With the powerful loop recorder unit located right in the middle of your center control section, you can record loops in real-time from any channel, including the auxiliary inputs. This allows you to record from a variety of audio inputs, for remixing, rearranging, and revamping on the fly. It's kind of like having a 5th deck of operation -- you can immediately record, layer, and overdub sections of audio on top of one another. Triggering this process is easy as pushing a button -- a conveniently located button in the center of your console.

Seamless Software and Hardware Integration

There are plenty of DJ controllers that integrate with Traktor software, but only Native Instruments' DJ controllers are designed by the same team that made Traktor. Tight plug-and-play integration with Traktor is a given with the S4 MKII -- its entire interface is designed to reflect the software. It's also compatible with the Traktor DJ iPad and iPhone app right out of the box. And it's a quick process to change the MIDI function of any button, knob, or slider on the S4, making it easy to customize to suit your needs.

Traktor Pro 2 Software Included

Your Traktor Kontrol S4 controller comes with NI's professional-grade Traktor PRO 2 DJ software. Grab hold of your S4 controller to load your songs on up to four individual decks. 'TruWave' colored waveforms show you your music, so mixing in a loud environment is easier than ever. With Traktor Pro on your laptop and the TruWave display on your screen, you can differentiate between kicks, hi-hats, and snare hits.

Hands-On Control of Traktor's Remix Decks

Feel like mixing things up a bit? Traktor 2 PRO's remix decks allow you to remix and rearrange your tracks with unprecedented power and flexibility. Route audio to the remix decks, load up pre-recorded samples, and create remix sets to save your performances for later use. Tired of your tracks not matching up perfectly? Traktor Pro 2 features its acclaimed sync concept and quantize feature. This ensures that your songs will always be on the same beat, so transitioning and mixing is easier than ever.

Features:

- Four stereo decks
- Dual high-resolution, touch sensitive jog wheels
- Loop recorder
- High quality 3-band EQ, filter, and level control per channel
- 96 kHz/24-bit low-latency audio interface with premium Cirrus Logic converters
- Full version of Traktor Pro 2 DJ software
- Two customizable effects sections including over 25 performance effects
- Slim and compact for easy transport and setup
- The ability to connect turntables, CD players, and microphones

Lugging equipment to DJ gigs used to be a daunting task -- two turntables, a mixer, endless crates of records, and a pile of cables were necessary to get the party started. The Traktor Kontrol S4 puts all that in the past. Native Instruments has been researching, developing, and innovating products for DJs for well over a decade -- and the Traktor S4 MKII controller is the result. With this controller and your laptop running Traktor, you've got a pro DJ rig that's ready to rock any gig.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (1 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "AWESOME!!!!"
Overall: I recently purchased the Kontrol S4 MK2 and have loved every second using it. After starting on turntables back in the early 80s, this unit gives me the tools I need and more to unleash my creativity. I can do everything I use to do on a turntable and then some. I highly recommend this controller to both beginner and pros.
Style of Music: Old School House, Electro & Progressive House
