Now shipping with Traktor 3.1 featuring parallel waveforms and standalone mixer mode for the Kontrol S4.
TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 lets you connect with your tracks in entirely new ways: Not only do its motorized 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 color displays keeping all the info you need front and center in the booth, everything you need is right where you need it – so you’re free to focus on your mix.
We’ve re-envisioned what jog wheels can do, and what you can do with them. They’re now motorized, and provide you with haptic feedback. It’s a new way of connecting with your tracks in three different modes.
New all-hands-on deck design, including 16 RGB pads for Hotcues and samples, and new Mixer FX. Keep track of transport information, Stems, and Remix decks, with two high-res screens.
We’ve included the best version of our flagship DJ software yet. With an improved audio engine, a brand new user interface that makes things easier to see in the club, one-touch Mixer FX, and loads more.
You can instantly see which deck you’re on when playing across four channels, with color-coded light rings and deck buttons. Visualization of track tempo, play mode, and nudging makes your mixing plain to see.
Something you’ll want to touch: Meet Haptic Drive™ – new, motorized, 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.
• Cue points and loops click as you scroll past them with the jog wheels
• Spin the deck to the next cue point to line up tracks in a second
• Spend less time looking at the screen, and more time reading the dancefloor
• Motorized jog wheels spin according to track tempo and deck behavior
• Nudge records and slow them down using the rim of the jog wheel while mixing, for an old-school turntable feel
• Ride the touch-sensitive top plate slipmat-style, or spin the deck back for peak-time rewinds
• Traditional spin-to-nudge jog wheel behavior that speeds up or slows down the deck
• RGB light ring indicates deck spin – see how fast tracks are playing, and how you’re manipulating them
• Haptic feedback means you can mix in one track while quickly finding cue points or loops on the next
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 visualization 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.
The Stems audio format splits tracks into four musical components, such as drums, bass, vocals, and melody, so you can mix them independently. Edit and re-edit in the heat of the moment, blend basslines and vocals from tracks you know to create tracks you didn’t.
One-shot samples and loops on Remix decks blur the lines between DJ and live performance. Insert vocals, samples, atmospheric effects, and more into a Remix deck to trigger and manipulate them in sync with the rest of your mix.
Access thousands of royalty-free hits and loops – from drums to synths, instruments, vocals, and more. Search by BPM, genre, style, and key. Drag-and-drop them into Remix decks to add a new dimension to your mix and expand its sonic palette.
