A 4-deck controller fully integrated with NI's exceptional DJ software for instant plug and play.
Native Instruments revolutionized the DJ world nearly a decade ago with the introduction of TRAKTOR, the world's first professional DJ software. Now they're back at it again with TRAKTOR KONTROL S4, a DJ performance system designed from the ground up from the team behind TRAKTOR.

The New Performance DJ System
Forget what you know about DJ controllers and DJ software. TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 was designed from its conception as a fully integrated system where software and hardware are fused in perfect harmony. Once you experience it, you'll immediately feel how simple, yet powerful and fluid a professional DJ system can be. TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 is the culmination of a 10-year vision and experience only Native Instruments can provide. So whether you're a seasoned TRAKTOR user looking for the ultimate controller, or just entering the world of digital DJing, the S4 delivers.
Custom-tailored for TRAKTOR, the S4 fuses a premium-quality 4-channel DJ mixer, a built-in 24-bit/96kHz soundcard, an intuitive controller, and the flagship TRAKTOR PRO S4 software into one fully professional solution—the ideal one-stop package for DJs who want pro features, instant usability and go-anywhere portability.
KONTROL In Action
The sleek, stylish controller puts TRAKTOR at your fingertips—fusing hardware and software into one harmonic unit. Innovative Sample Decks, high-quality electromagnetic jog wheels, two effect units, and two clearly laid-out deck control sections can be assigned to any of the four software decks and deliver a new level in creative control over your one shots, tracks, and loops.
The intuitive and ergonomic controller layout and its robust rotary knobs provide precise visual and tactile status feedback—perfect for any DJ situation. Highly responsive to the touch, TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 is incredibly smooth to use, while its slim and compact profile makes it easy to transport from gig to gig.
New TRAKTOR Pro S4 Software
It's super simple to get straight in the mix, thanks to the included TRAKTOR PRO S4 software, adapted from the pioneering TRAKTOR PRO. Developed in perfect synergy with the S4's controller, new features have been added to the TRAKTOR PRO S4 software to fully take advantage of this all-in-one solution, while premium ready-made and instantly combinable loops have been provided by the renowned Loopmasters sample house.
TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 boasts a full-featured 4-channel mixer section with sturdy faders, CUE buttons, illuminated level meters, high-quality 3-band EQs, and a filter control knob on each channel. The filter is switchable between TRAKTOR and Xone-style. The ergonomic layout has been created by DJs for DJs, with some of the world's biggest names having direct input in to the design. It's easy to integrate other DJ and performance gear like turntables, CD players, or a microphone via the inputs.
The innovative new Loop Recorder feature acts like a fifth deck, to add an exciting layer on top of your mix by recording and looping audio on-the-fly. An optional foot controller can be used to engage the Loop Recorder while both hands are busy—for instance while performing an advanced scratch routine.
Integrated Audio Interface
TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 also includes a powerful and versatile audio interface. With the same build quality as all multi-award winning Native Instruments DJ sound cards, this unit lets you easily integrate external turntables and CD players, instruments, MIDI gear, effects, and a microphone into your TRAKTOR DJ sets.
Incorporating high-end AD/DA converters, hi-gain output levels and an ultra-wide frequency response, TRAKTOR KONTROL S4's integrated audio interface provides all the power, clarity, and dynamic range that modern DJs demand.
Hit the Road
TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 is the ideal solution for mobile DJs as it provides everything you need to rock a party in one highly portable unit. It's a breeze to set up—simply plug-and-play—and you're done in seconds. And with its slim profile, it's incredibly easy to transport from gig to gig. The flexible ins and outs of the included soundcard mean it's easy to hook up other gear—including a microphone.
S4 and SCRATCH
In the near future, S4 users will have the option to connect their preferred analog turntables or CDJs to control pitch, scratching, and transport functions for the S4 software. External timecode control via TRAKTOR SCRATCH will open up even more opportunities for creative mixing, fusing the already advanced features of the S4 with the full expressiveness of the traditional turntable / CDJ approach.
