Native Instruments revolutionized the DJ world nearly a decade ago with the introduction of TRAKTOR, the world's first professional DJ software. Now we're set to do it all again with TRAKTOR KONTROL S4, the only DJ performance system designed from the ground up from the team behind TRAKTOR.
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 like no other can.
Custom-tailored for TRAKTOR, the S4 fuses a premium-quality 4 channel DJ mixer, a built-in 24 bit/96 kHz soundcard, an intuitive controller, and the flagship TRAKTOR PRO 2* software into one fully professional solution - the ideal one-stop package for DJs who want pro features, instant usability and go-anywhere portability.
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.
It's super simple to get straight in the mix, thanks to the included TRAKTOR PRO 2* software. Developed in perfect synergy with the S4´s controller, new features have been added to the TRAKTOR PRO 2* 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.
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!
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 balanced 1/4" TRS outputs 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.
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. And with its slim profile, it's incredibly easy to transport from gig to gig.
The optional flight case carries your unit with 100% security, while the case also elevates the unit to standard turntable and offers a stable stand for your laptop.
Or you could opt for the stylish and functional TRAKTOR TROLLEY BY UDG, which comfortably carries the S4 as well as all your other gig gear - while also meeting the requirements of most airlines for carry-on luggage.
S4 users have the option to add scratch functionality to the S4 system by purchasing the TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 Scratch Upgrade. After upgrading, you can control pitch, scratching, and transport functions of TRAKTOR using analog turntables and CDJs. This opens up even more opportunities for creative mixing, fusing the already advanced features of the S4 with expressive turntable / CDJ techniques.
