Turn Your Laptop into an Awesome DJ RigYour complete on-the-go DJ rig! Native Instruments' Traktor Kontrol S4 is an all-in-one laptop-based DJ system that combines the revolutionary next step in the Traktor Pro DJ software series, Traktor Pro S4, with a custom-built USB audio interface and turntable-style controller. Traktor Pro S4 adds amazing new sampling and sample-playback capability to Traktor Pro. The Traktor Kontrol S4 controller puts all the tools you need right at your fingertips. You get amazing hands-on control, including two amazing high-resolution jog wheels equipped with patent-pending magnetic brakes, as well as a general layout that covers all of Traktor Pro S4's primary functions.
More than just a DJ controller, the Traktor Kontrol S4 controller is also a super-high-quality 4-channel USB audio interface that's capable of handling digital audio of up to 24-bit/96kHz resolution. It comes armed with a pair of excellent microphone preamps and enough other analog inputs to accommodate any other DJ gear you want to use. Each channel has its own level fader, 3-band EQ, filter knob, and gain control, as well as two effects sends. The Traktor Kontrol S4's super-smooth crossfader has an adjustable sharpness curve, and it's completely replaceable.
On the software side, Traktor Kontrol S4 comes with the custom Traktor Pro S4 DJ software, which is based on the highly popular Traktor Pro platform. There are, however, some killer new features in Traktor Pro S4 that will blow you away! Similar to previous versions of Traktor Pro, Traktor Pro S4 features four independent decks. What's different is that Traktor Pro S4 also offers all-new Sample Decks, which allow you to perform live sampling and looping tricks. Snag loops from live tracks or load them up from your library. Traktor Kontrol S4 even comes with a ton of excellent content from Loop Masters to get you started.
Each Sample Deck can hold up to four loops, which lets you DJ entirely from loops if you like, but without giving up the pacing and environment of a traditional DJ setup. Traktor Kontrol S4's software also lets you grab samples from incoming audio, thanks to its Loop Recorder. The Loop Recorder acts, more or less, as a fifth deck in Traktor Pro S4, allowing you to record, layer, and overdub samples from any of the S4's live inputs. Once you've created the loop you want, you can transfer the new loop to one of your Sample Deck slots. Whether you prefer an old-school approach or are ready to try something new, you're going to love DJing with Native Instruments' Traktor Kontrol S4!

by Mr Jones from Coatesville, Pasurprisingly incredible, a bit intimidating at first due to so much to learn as a new dj. I learn something new every day, It does so much.

I'm just your average music provider called to the scene when there are 80s parties going on and they need simple continuous mixing of music free of charge (as long as they feed me). No fancy quick hands or scratching here. The Traktor Kontrol S4 is a major step up to what I currently have. The S4 is VERY user-friendly. Everything is laid out in a very easy to understand, flowing work process. Installation was easy. Make sure you have an RCA cable to connect your S4 to a pair of powered speakers so you can easily hear what's ON AIR ,while listening to your CUEING with your headphones. Overall, this is a great investment. Not bad for the price. Buy it from Sweetwater. close [-]
