Traktor Kontrol S4 MK3 lets you connect with your tracks in entirely new ways: Not only do its motorised jog wheels spin and react to nudging, scratching, pitch-fading, and backspins, they transmit cue points, loop markers, and more direct to your fingertips. And with RGB LED rings and high-res colour displays keeping all the info you need front and centre in the booth, everything you need is right where you need it – so you’re free to focus on your mix.
Something you’ll want to touch: Meet Haptic Drive™ – new, motorised, touch-sensitive jog wheels that give you haptic feedback. They spin like vinyl, so you can nudge, stop, and spin them back however you want. Adjust the start/stop time and torque to match them to your mixing style.
The S4 MK3 offers three jog wheel operation styles:
- Turntable Mode - Motorised jog wheels spin according to track tempo and deck behaviour. Nudge records and slow them down using the rim of the jog wheel while mixing, for an old-school turntable feel. Ride the touch-sensitive top plate slipmat-style, or spin the deck back for peak-time rewinds.
- Classic Jog Mode - Traditional spin-to-nudge jog wheel behaviour that speeds up or slows down the deck. RGB light ring indicates deck spin, see how fast tracks are playing, and how you’re manipulating them. Haptic feedback means you can mix in one track while quickly finding cue points or loops on the next.
- Beatgrid Adjust Mode - Use the jog wheel to adjust the beatgrid quickly, haptic feedback gives you touch information on elements of the beatgrid
