GET CLOSER TO YOUR MUSIC

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.
TRAKTOR KONTROL S4

1. DECK FX

Create dramatic build-ups and inventive blends with TRAKTOR’s famous tempo-synced FX: including Beatmasher, LaserSlicer, bitcrushers, flangers, and over 40 more.

2. AUDIO INTERFACE

The on-board 24-bit / 96-kHz audio interface makes the TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 the core of your setup: 2 x phono / line inputs, 2 x line inputs, 2 x main outputs (RCA / XLR), TRS booth output and 1/8 / 1/4 headphone outputs, 2 x mic inputs, 2 USB ports and DVS support.

3. HAPTIC DRIVE™

Motorized jog wheels provide haptic force-feedback. Feel cue points and loops when scrolling through your tracks.

4. LED RING

RGB light ring visualizes deck selection, rotation, and speed.

5. NEW MIXER FX

One-touch effects on each channel for big drops and smooth transitions, with eight different club-grade effects and three unique filter models to choose from.

6. TURNTABLE MODE

Spin the jog wheels to speed up or slow down tracks while getting them in sync in Jog mode, or manually adjust a track’s beatgrid in Beatgrid mode.

7. 16 RGB PADS

Punch in cue points and loops, manipulate Stems, and trigger Remix Deck samples on the fly with eight pads on each deck.

8. 4-CHANNEL MIXER

Mix across four decks with full effects and custom-EQ control using TRAKTOR PRO 3, or mix four channels of external audio in the alternative standalone capability. Inverted Carbon Protect faders protect against dust and dirt.

9. HIGH-RESOLUTION COLOR DISPLAYS

Essential information at a glance. See waveform, looping, key, and BPM information, track title, remaining track time, Stems, and Remix deck samples. Find everything at your fingertips and focus on your mix.

REINVENTED JOG WHEELS

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.

CLUB-STANDARD LAYOUT

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.

TRAKTOR PRO 3

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.

VISUAL DECK FEEDBACK

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.

Features

A NEW CLUB CLASSIC

For years, the KONTROL S4 has brought TRAKTOR’s club heritage wherever DJs want. The latest generation goes one step further, combining a tried and tested workflow with new, innovative ways to mix on four decks – Haptic Drive™ jog wheels, Mixer FX, and more bring you even closer to the crowd and your music.

HAPTIC DRIVE™: THE JOG WHEEL, REINVENTED

Haptic Drive™ gives you a new kind of feedback on touch-sensitive, motorized jog wheels. Change the torque and start/stop times to suit any DJ style – whether you’re a laid-back beatmatcher or backspin aficionado. Get closer to your music in three modes – Tuntable Mode, Jog Mode, and Beatgrid Adjust Mode.

THREE MODES: MIX WITH MORE

Spinning jog wheels in Turntable Mode let you nudge and scratch like you would with vinyl. Or use classic Jog Mode for spin-to-nudge response. Because you feel loops and cue points as you scroll past them, you can line up tracks in a second and let your fingers do the mixing. Beatgrid Adjust Mode lets you adjust the track’s beatgrid on the fly, so you’re always in sync.

RGB LIGHT RINGS: YOUR SOUND, SURROUNDED

RGB light rings around each jog wheel deliver quick, responsive tempo and nudging visualization on each deck. DJs using four decks can stay on-track with jog wheel color-coding, and track-end warnings make sure you’re never caught out.

NEW MIXER FX: YOUR ONE-TOUCH SECRET WEAPON

Easy to use and instant – Mixer FX give you control over club-grade filters, delays, gates, reverbs, and more. They’re great for big transitions, or to accentuate and control the nuances and ambience of your set – depending on the dancefloor. Use them either on their own, or in combination with the usual TRAKTOR Deck FX for fun ways to shift your sound.

COLOR DISPLAYS: ALL HANDS ON DECK

Create quick and evolving mixes with everything you need in one place. Each high-resolution display shows track, key, tempo, looping, Hotcue, and waveform information. Control Stems and samples directly with dedicated controls, and access powerful software tools at your fingertips.

HARD TO BREAK: CARBON PROTECT FADERS

Upside-down carbon strips in our revised fader design mean better protection from liquids, dust, and other substances, because they no longer fall onto the conductive carbon surface. It’s a simple trick that makes a big difference to their durability – especially in a world of DJ-booth drinks and packed-out dancefloors.

ALL YOU NEED: EXPANDED CONNECTIVITY

The TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 is equipped with an integrated, club-grade 24-bit / 96-kHz audio interface, with external input options on every channel. Connect turntables for crate-diggers, drum machines and synths for hybrid wizards, or anything else you can think of to push the boundaries of your mix. When connected to TRAKTOR PRO 3, the software adds headroom to the signal, before TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 gives it an analog boost – meaning better sound at club levels. Without a computer, the S4 can alternatively be used to mix external audio sources.

TRAKTOR PRO 3: CRAFTED TO PERFORM

Audio engine improvements and a redesigned user interface make TRAKTOR PRO 3 the best-sounding and most powerful version yet. Dig into extensive re-editing and mixing possibilities with loops, Hotcues, Flux Mode, samples, beat-syncing, and the industry’s largest FX suite – for easy experimentation and soundscape creation.

Software Details

TRAKTOR PRO 3

From head-bobbing bar beats to midnight main-room experimentation. With intuitive and powerful tools for soundscape exploration, TRAKTOR PRO 3 makes any mix possible.

SYNC THAT NEVER SKIPS A BEAT

For mixing samples, loops, using Flux Mode and more. Hit Sync, and TRAKTOR keeps the elements of your mix perfectly matched. This is especially good for more advanced techniques like triggering additional loops and samples, or for syncing external gear with your TRAKTOR setup via MIDI or Ableton Link.

LOOP, JUMP, AND JUGGLE

Really make a mix your own. Use pads on TRAKTOR hardware to juggle Hotcues or to jump between drops and breaks to chop and screw your tracks. Loop and move encoders let you quickly re-edit in the heat of the moment. With TRAKTOR’s industry-leading beatsync, jumps and loops are always completely seamless.

FULL FX SUITE

From dubby drums to reverb-rinsed vocals – effects in TRAKTOR let you create soundscapes that are out of this world. Dial in over 40 customizable Deck FX that range from subtle beatshifts to all-out sonic destruction. We freshly developed new Mixer FX for easy-to-use modulation that sounds huge.

MIRROR YOUR MIXING STYLE

If you only need two decks and nothing else, you can set up TRAKTOR to show you just that. If you’re running an external input, two track decks and a Remix Deck with samples, you can customize TRAKTOR to show that too. Make the interface fit your style, so you always see everything you need at a glance.

PRO-GRADE SOUND

TRAKTOR’s audio engine is the result of almost two decades of development, and TRAKTOR PRO 3 sees further improvement with the integration of Elastique 3 time stretching, and an improved master limiter. It’s a sound that has filled everything from house-party speaker setups to large club systems and festival rigs.

CLEVER TRACK COLLECTION

An effective track collection is one you can use without thinking, so you can keep your head in the mix. Quickly find the tracks you know will work the crowd by structuring your library in a way that suits you. Filter by track type to find Remix Sets and Stems tracks easily, and create preparation lists for smooth DJ sets.

REMIX DECKS AND STEMS

Shift your set from DJing into the realm of live performance. Load one-shot samples or loops within a Remix Deck and trigger them to expand the sonic palette of your mix. Stems let you individually work with parts of a track for unique and spontaneous reworks – use the vocal stem and pair it with a new break to create a re-edit the crowd won’t hear anywhere else.
