Traktor Kontrol S4 MK2 Controller

The new Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S2 MK2 and Traktor Kontrol S4 MK2 Digital DJ controllers were just released to the public last week and we've already completed the reviews which shows why these units work excellent with the Traktor Pro 2 software and the Traktor DJ App. The Traktor Kontrol S2 and S4 have many similarities and differences so I've decided to create a quick comparison video to show potential buyers what they'll be missing or gaining by purchasing one or the other.
