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 release of the Traktor Kontrol Z1 and the accidentally leaked Traktor Kontrol X1 MK2 further add to the speculation that new controllers are on the way. I'm sure we'll all find out before the end of the summer, so stay tuned for many more new developments from NI.
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. Just in case you need to refresh your memory, I've included the link to my (very old) Traktor Kontrol S4 review so you can see all that can be done with the first Traktor all-in-one controller. Check out the press release of the pricedrop below to hear the words straight from NI...
