A great investment for any DJ. This is a real hands on product review by EpR@ Sam Ash Ontario.

        Comments about Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S4 MK2 4+1 Channel DJ System:

        The Traktor S4 DJ Controller is a great system to use. It has all the basic functions for a DJ controller plus a few things. For a 4-channel controller, I feel it is one of the best and easiest to use. It is a plug and play controller, meaning once you have it plugged in and the DJ software running, you will be ready to play your set. One thing to keep in mind is that it is a 4-channel controller meaning it is not a space-saving unit. It is very sturdy and very durable, so it can go through a lot.

        I have played out with the S4 and quite honestly, it is one of my favorite controllers to play on.

          I've used the Native Instruments S4 controller on countless gigs and events. The sound quality is superb and easy of use as well. In addition, the included Traktor Pro software contains a multitude of features to make your mix sound as professional as possible. From numerous effects, recording/broadcasting capabilities, to 4-deck mixing, this unit has it all! Highly recommend this to anyone starting to DJ or looking to mix it in with other hardware such as CDJs or turntables.

                Wow this thing is truely amazing! Everything the MK1 lacked the MK2 has.

                NativeInstruments did quite an overhaul on the MK2. Even if you're new to DJing, it won't take you long to start sounding like you've been doing it for years. This unit will allow you to get out and start DJing faster. Regardless of your goals, this unit will get you where you want to go and keep you there. Cruze into Sam Ash and check out their MK2s they have for demo. You're going to love them!

                    For some reason a lot of House music fans love this mixer. Its because of all the features it has to offer. It uses TRAKTOR .All the effects and isolators makes it a great sounding controller. Many remixes can be done with mixer . You can have 4 decks playing at the same time. I recommend this mixer highly

                    Comments about Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S4 MK2 4+1 Channel DJ System:

                    The Traktor S4 is Native Instruments' flagship all-in-one hardware and software DJ system. Although the standard among DJs is usually a pair of CDJs, the Traktor S4 is making waves as top tier DJs and producers like Porter Robinson and Zedd have begun using it as their main controller for their tours. The Traktor S4 does some things very well, such as creating a very intuitive interface that is easy to pick up, but falls a bit short in other areas, such as analyzing the BPM of certain tracks that do not have clear kick transients, or even kicks that do not fall into the four on the floor groove. That said, no software can be expected to be perfect in this regard, and all DJs should learn to mix tracks together without sync mode on anyway (although, there is nothing wrong with using it - even Porter does).

                    Mixing on the Traktor S4 is a pleasure, as all the controls are very easy to use and there is almost no latency when scrolling through a track. The only complaint I've really had is that there are sometimes issues adding tracks to your library, and the FX system is not as intuitive as the rest of the controller. However, these are both easily fixed and I got used to the FX sends within the first day or so of use.

                    If you're looking for a DJ controller that you can grow into, or you're a professional DJ looking to move from a CDJ system to an all-in-one controller, I would look no further than the Traktor S4.

                        Okay, so I've fallen a bit into the EDM bandwagon and thought it would be cool to learn a little bit of DJing and mixing. I must say, this Traktor S4 made learning how to do it so much easier and you will be sounding like a pro in no time! Also if you plan on DJing events, all you need is this, a laptop, and some good speakers and you are all set! If you're looking for an easy way to begin to hone your chops at DJing/mixing, this is the right device for you!
