Free Scratch Upgrade for Traktor Kontrol S4 Users

Just last week I put out a video showing the Traktor Kontrol S4 DJ controller working with external decks using timecode in order to operate all four decks simultaneously with a lot more control. This video was done on Traktor Pro 2 at the time, but now Native Instruments is giving away a FREE "Scratch Upgrade Kit" which will allow users to mix and scratch with timecode via the directly connected turntables or CD decks. Check inside for more information.

Traktor Kontrol S4 Internal Timecode with Denon DN-S3700's

Here is a short video of the Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S4 using its internal soundcard for total timecode control with two Denon DN-S3700 Multimedia Controllers. The setup process is very simple and you don't need any additional hardware to make it work. All you need is RCA cables and Traktor Scratch Pro 2 software and a set of timecode CD's or timecode Vinyl. You can then control two of the four Traktor decks using external units. This way the DJ has all four decks of control at any given time without having to switch between one deck or the other.

[Video] Traktor Kontrol S2 MK2 & S4 MK2 Unboxing & First Impressions

The new Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S2 MK2 and S4 MK2 Digital DJ controllers were just released to the public last week and we've got review units in the lab for full out video and written reviews. The new controllers boast improvements to the original designs by adding multi-color hotcue/remix deck pads, hi-res aluminum metal plate jog wheels, FLUX mode buttons, and Traktor DJ iOS compatibility. The original S2 and S4 DJ controllers were the perfect 2-channel and 4-channel mixing consoles for the Traktor software. The Traktor software has seen lots of new updates since the release of the original S2 /S4 so it's only natural that NI releases new controller interfaces to access the new advanced features such as remix decks controls and FLUX mode. We'll have the full reviews completed shortly, but check out our unboxing & first impressions videos in the meantime to see what comes in the boxes.

NI's Limited Time Offer on TRAKTOR KONTROL S4

Late last week, Native Instruments announced the third and final price-drop of its long-standing flagship 4-deck Digital DJ Controller called the Traktor Kontrol S4. I call this the third and final price-drop because NI has listed this offer to last from now until August 31st OR until stocks last. The writing has been on the wall for a fresh new round of all-in-one DJ controllers since the release of Traktor 2.5 and the remix deck functionality that the S2/S4 could never really take advantage of. The S4 is still a very capable DJ controller that also has a built in Traktor DJ Soundcard that allows DJ's to playback timecode vinyl or CD's with external turntables or CD decks. Take advantage of this sweet deal while you still can.
