The S4 also features color-coded RGB buttons to trigger cue points, loops, and samples as well as dedicated Flux Mode buttons for each deck.
The spacious TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 layout is designed for perfect TRAKTOR integration – all controls feel natural right from the start.
8 color-coded RGB buttons are laid out and mapped in line with the current demands of digital DJing. Easily access elemental transport controls, as well as cue points and trigger loops and essential Remix Decks.
TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 requires minimal set up. Connect your computer to the S4, and the S4 to your PA, amp, or speakers. Or go mobile – take your setup wherever you go with TRAKTOR DJ for iPad or iPhone.
Built to control the latest TRAKTOR features, the S4 is in perfect synergy with the software – no mapping or control assignments necessary. And if you want to customize it, dive into the S4 preferences and express yourself.
Every DJ has their method. Whatever suits yours, TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 has you covered. Easily assign default hotcue settings geared to your playing style, set favorite and preset FX without browsing, or switch pitch faders between relative and absolute modes.
If the Remix Deck functions aren't for you, simply reassign the buttons and get creative. Try setting up different hot cues for your tracks, or even a backward loop function.
WHEELS OF FEEL
High-resolution jog wheels with aircraft-grade aluminum plates are designed for maximum durability and solid performance. DJs will instantly appreciate the grip of the rubber coated outer rim and the touch detection of the top plate.
At 1,000 counts per revolution, cueing or scratching feels just like vinyl. The silicone-damped braking system is finely calibrated – ensuring a reliable consistency over its entire lifespan.
Under the hood, the S4 works at lightning speed to provide a smoother, more precise user experience.
With 30 times more throughput compared to regular MIDI, fluid control over every aspect of your performance is right at your fingertips.
HIT THE ROAD
TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 is ideal for travelling DJs, providing everything you need to rock a party. With its slim profile, it's incredibly easy to transport from gig to gig. On-the-go set preparation has never been easier. The S4's included TRAKTOR PRO software even syncs with TRAKTOR DJ on your iOS device for effortless song management.
TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 boasts an ergonomic, full featured 4-channel mixer control section with sturdy faders, CUE buttons, high-quality 3-band EQs, and a filter control knob on each channel. Whatever your flavor, the filter can switch between Traktor, Xone and other industry standard styles.
Personalize your tracks by adding an electrifying layer to your mix. The intuitive Loop Recorder acts like a fifth deck by recording and looping audio on-the-fly.
ALL IN THE MIX
Built to professional club standards, the S4 mixer section is made up of four stereo channels, 3-band EQs, a filter knob, gain and two FX sends per channel. Two analog stereo inputs and the additional auxiliary session input allow the S4 to connect to external gear. Switchable booth output allows for separate speaker and booth monitoring levels.
The super smooth crossfader comes with dust covers and is replaceable. Its sharpness curve can be adjusted via the software to fit your mixing style.
Here you'll find the main level output, and one push encoder for browsing playlists and loading tracks, samples, or loops.
The Snap button ensures cue points and loops sound tight by snapping to the nearest point of the track beatgrid. The Quant button means they'll play quantized in perfect phase-sync by launching in time, at the right moment. The Master button switches between Master Clock and Master Deck Mode.
GAIN AND FX ASSIGN
The encoders serve as gain controls for individual decks in TRAKTOR. FX assign buttons route audio to two effect sections per channel.
The Master Level knob in the center adjusts the master output volume.
Record loops on-the-fly from any channel (single or multiple), or capture audio live from the mic input or master output. Then layer and overdub loops on top of one another to build live mixes. Even connect a footswitch (optional) to trigger recording and overdubbing, keeping your hands free for additional tweaking.
Got a killer loop going? Instantly transfer it to a Remix Deck slot, freeing up the Loop Recorder for further use.
All faders have special path limiters to ensure zero dead zone at their boundaries – giving a sharp cutting attack. Their lasting, rugged quality continually excels in even the most demanding of gig schedules. Included fader covers now help prevent dust wear.
Relative pitch faders avoid sudden jumps in tempo when adjusting track speeds. Adjust the pitch and the track will respond as though the fader was beginning from 0%, ensuring smooth transitions in tempo.

TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 also includes a powerful and versatile audio interface built to handle the most earth-shaking sound systems.

Innovative Remix Decks
Remix Decks are the latest TRAKTOR innovation, letting you select from up to 64 loops and one-shot samples per deck. Any of the four decks in TRAKTOR PRO 2.5 can be switched to be a Remix Deck
Each Remix Deck offers four different Slots (columns), ideal for arranging sounds and loops by instrument groups e.g. different drum, bass, percussion loops. Play one sound per column - a total of four samples at any one time.
Use loops from the included sound content or import any loops and sounds of your own
Develop your own unique trademark sound and build a personal arsenal of sounds by live-capturing your favorite loops while DJing
A New Way to Perform
The stylish multi-color pads and ergonomic faders make TRAKTOR KONTROL F1 the ultimate controller for a Remix Deck. Any sound or loop can be assigned a specific RGB color, either in the software or via the controller
A Remix Set? is the combination of 64 loops and one-shot samples and their respective beat grids and BPMs - stored and loaded just like a regular track in the browser
Control the entire Remix Deck via Native Scratch timecode control with vinyl or CDs - or scratch using the TRAKTOR KONTROL S4/S2 jog wheels. Each
Remix Deck has its own transport, sync, and tempo master controls
To add more flavor, you can choose which slots are fed through TRAKTOR's FX units, or even play samples in reverse
The Punch mode allows for instant switching between different loops in one instrument group, in perfect phase - switch from one drum loop to the next exactly on the 2 and 4 snares
Additionally, the Remix Deck quantize can be set to different values for full control of the musical phrasing
Improved BPM Detection
Rewritten tempo detection for improved accuracy, developed from analysing thousands of tracks from various genres
New "downbeat" auto-detection improves auto-beat-gridding and phase recognition
Convenient analysis options when importing files to your collection - set the tempo range by BPM
Much improved BPM detection on tracks with variable tempo, (such as "live" drummer genres) - now detects average BPM
Rewritten Tempo-Tap – instant and simple realignment anytime your tracks drifts away from the grid over time
Manually adjusted grids, (and all BPM-locked tracks) keep their position and tempo from previous versions
New Browser Features
All contents and settings of a Remix Deck can be saved and reloaded as "Remix Sets", managed in the Browser as a single entry
Sounds and loops are contained in the Remix Sets' .trak format for super-convenient file handling across computers
The state of browser tree is recalled from previous session when starting TRAKTOR
