    A 4-deck controller fully integrated with NI's exceptional DJ software for instant plug and play.

    Native Instruments revolutionized the DJ world nearly a decade ago with the introduction of TRAKTOR, the world's first professional DJ software. Now they're back at it again with TRAKTOR KONTROL S4, a DJ performance system designed from the ground up from the team behind TRAKTOR.

    Note:
    Free update to the new TRAKTOR PRO 2 software for registered S4 users. See Native Instrument's website for latest software and firmware updates.


    The New Performance DJ System
    Forget what you know about DJ controllers and DJ software. TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 was designed from its conception as a fully integrated system where software and hardware are fused in perfect harmony. Once you experience it, you'll immediately feel how simple, yet powerful and fluid a professional DJ system can be. TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 is the culmination of a 10-year vision and experience only Native Instruments can provide. So whether you're a seasoned TRAKTOR user looking for the ultimate controller, or just entering the world of digital DJing, the S4 delivers.

    Custom-tailored for TRAKTOR, the S4 fuses a premium-quality 4-channel DJ mixer, a built-in 24-bit/96kHz soundcard, an intuitive controller, and the flagship TRAKTOR PRO S4 software into one fully professional solution—the ideal one-stop package for DJs who want pro features, instant usability and go-anywhere portability.

    KONTROL In Action
    The sleek, stylish controller puts TRAKTOR at your fingertips—fusing hardware and software into one harmonic unit. Innovative Sample Decks, high-quality electromagnetic jog wheels, two effect units, and two clearly laid-out deck control sections can be assigned to any of the four software decks and deliver a new level in creative control over your one shots, tracks, and loops.

    The intuitive and ergonomic controller layout and its robust rotary knobs provide precise visual and tactile status feedback—perfect for any DJ situation. Highly responsive to the touch, TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 is incredibly smooth to use, while its slim and compact profile makes it easy to transport from gig to gig.

    New TRAKTOR Pro S4 Software
    It's super simple to get straight in the mix, thanks to the included TRAKTOR PRO S4 software, adapted from the pioneering TRAKTOR PRO. Developed in perfect synergy with the S4's controller, new features have been added to the TRAKTOR PRO S4 software to fully take advantage of this all-in-one solution, while premium ready-made and instantly combinable loops have been provided by the renowned Loopmasters sample house.

    4-Channel Mixer
    TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 boasts a full-featured 4-channel mixer section with sturdy faders, CUE buttons, illuminated level meters, high-quality 3-band EQs, and a filter control knob on each channel. The filter is switchable between TRAKTOR and Xone-style. The ergonomic layout has been created by DJs for DJs, with some of the world's biggest names having direct input in to the design. It's easy to integrate other DJ and performance gear like turntables, CD players, or a microphone via the inputs.

    The innovative new Loop Recorder feature acts like a fifth deck, to add an exciting layer on top of your mix by recording and looping audio on-the-fly. An optional foot controller can be used to engage the Loop Recorder while both hands are busy—for instance while performing an advanced scratch routine.

    Integrated Audio Interface
    TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 also includes a powerful and versatile audio interface. With the same build quality as all multi-award winning Native Instruments DJ sound cards, this unit lets you easily integrate external turntables and CD players, instruments, MIDI gear, effects, and a microphone into your TRAKTOR DJ sets.

    Incorporating high-end AD/DA converters, hi-gain output levels and an ultra-wide frequency response, TRAKTOR KONTROL S4's integrated audio interface provides all the power, clarity, and dynamic range that modern DJs demand.

    Hit the Road
    TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 is the ideal solution for mobile DJs as it provides everything you need to rock a party in one highly portable unit. It's a breeze to set up—simply plug-and-play—and you're done in seconds. And with its slim profile, it's incredibly easy to transport from gig to gig. The flexible ins and outs of the included soundcard mean it's easy to hook up other gear—including a microphone.

    S4 and SCRATCH
    In the near future, S4 users will have the option to connect their preferred analog turntables or CDJs to control pitch, scratching, and transport functions for the S4 software. External timecode control via TRAKTOR SCRATCH will open up even more opportunities for creative mixing, fusing the already advanced features of the S4 with the full expressiveness of the traditional turntable / CDJ approach.

          Comments about Native Instruments TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 DJ Performance System:

          The Traktor S4 controller and Traktor Pro software combine to make a powerhouse of a DJ tool. Even though the S4 has a plastic body, it does not feel cheaply made. The components feel solid and are easy to use. The jog wheels have a nice movement to them and are not overly sensitive. The Traktor Pro software has a bit of a learning curve but once you master it, the sky is the limit for DJ creativity and remixing. Well worth the investment!

            A truly outstanding piece of equipment with all the versatility you can keep down. Too much functionality to mention all but the sample decks coupled with a clear and ergonomic layout make this a quick study. Although the learning curve is steep for some functions, it comes with a huge payoff at the summit.

            You get what you pay for

            Comments about Native Instruments TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 DJ Performance System:

            Don't waste your money on the cheaper alternatives if you are a Traktor fan. I bought two other controllers trying to find a cheap solution to effectively control the problem. I finally broke down and got this, and it's awesome. If you want a niece, relatively compact solution to controlling Traktor, wait until you can afford this and buy it...it's great and the soundcard inside is far superior to others I've used (other than the Apogee Duet 2 - very comparable to this, but it serves a different function entirely - also a great product FWIW)
            The only thing I'd like to see are kill push features on the EQ and a knob for key control, but you can definitely live without these. Overall it just works - as described - without anything weird going on.
            Feels solid - definitely not a toy like many other controllers available
            Like the title states: you get what you pay for. I've had the Numark Total Control and the American Audio VMS4. This is the only one that's worked exactly as advertised and works well. Makes my job 10000000x easier.

            Game Changer

            Comments about Native Instruments TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 DJ Performance System:

            I've had my S4 now for about a week and I have to say I'm REALLY impressed. I love how intuitive it is to use, the Traktor 2 Pro software is simply awesome! I used to own Serato Scratch with a pair of 1200's as well as CDJ's and have just this small piece of hardware has completely made my entire setup compact and simpler to use. I've reclaimed a lot of desk real estate too since I'm in a small apartment. I'm not a professional DJ by no means, but just going at it and using it without even reading the manual says a lot about it. The S4 is solidly built, has great effects and tons of features. I haven't even begun to scratch the surface on its capabilities. If you go with this...you will NOT be disappointed. I love mine!!!
