The review above stated for a turntablist this unit isn't for you. I am a turntablist/club dj/producer. My style involves alot of scratching. I currently use Serato and I will still use Serato. Serato is a powerful piece of software. I purchased this controller to see what Traktor has to offer. This unit is sick! It took awhile to set up in comparison to Serato (plug and play) due to all of the additional features available. My first test was obviously the scratching. I can perform some of the most technical scratches on my S4. I didn't believe NI could capture the feel of a record on those little jog wheels but they did it and did it well. Like I said, I enjoy using Serato and will now use Traktor as well. Both are incredibly fun to use. The effects in Trakor are no joke! I spin hiphop and house music. Traktor can enhance both styles of mixing. I have been djing for 16 years. Started with turntables, even battled for awhile, and now my primary focus is delivering music in the best possible fashion I can and I can tell you, this piece of equipment can enhance anyones delivery hands down.

I know the S4 wont appeal to everyone and there are other probably just as good or better (in some peoples opinion)4 deck controllers out there, but for me this controller fits what I do 100%. I'm not a scratch DJ or turntablist and if you are, this device probably isn't for you... but that's not what this is for anyway.

I play House, Electro, Trance & Chilled, been DJ'ing for over 20 years and been through the whole Technics 1210 & CDJ phase too. For me, digital DJ'ing is the way forward and something I learnt very early on, less than 1% of your audience care what kit you are using, the fact that I'm not pulling records out of a case they don't care. They just want to dance and have a good time.

The layout of the S4 is very intuitive, I like the way the jog wheels are placed towards the back of the deck, I don't catch them with my hand or arm like I used to on the VCI-100 (which this has replaced)

The deck is quite big, but I like that. The knobs and faders are spaced out well with the knobs being quite tall. In a low light DJ booth I've found it very easy to use. I made a plinth for the S4 to sit on, over the top of the Technics 1210's in the booth as space is often limited.

I've played 4 live gigs with the S4 now and it's been rock solid. Having the 4 decks easily controlled from the deck is great, no more clicking with the mouse or worrying about the lo-mid-hi settings, it's all there right in front of you.

The deck is lit up very nice & subtle, there are a couple of nice touches like when you are in browse mode the decks that are stopped and are available to load the song into flash gently. It's very quick and easy to operate in the club.

The hardware and new S4 software integrate very well. I cant fault it yet.

Native Instruments has been making incremental improvements to their Traktor DJ software, every year or so, ever since Traktor was first introduced in 2000. The software has grown to be a very full-featured dj performance suite and rightly holds a duopoly at the top of the market with Serato.

In 2009 NI began shipping branded hardware tailored to their Traktor software. There were (and are) other companies out there making hardware perfectly usable with Traktor, but NI did do a good job of leveraging their deep knowledge of their own software and their market to deliver devices that integrated with Traktor very tightly. The various flavors of audio interface boxes were excellent. Their first "control surface" unit (the Kontrol X1) was a nifty little box of knobs that was wonderfully matched to the software (it oughta!) and opened up the options for live-performance even more. The Kontrol X1 was strongly geared to djs who spin modern, quantized, "Pro Tools"-era music (trance, techno, pop, most hip-hop, etc.). For those styles, it is a fantastic helper box.

The Kontrol X1 is also a great add-on for folks using Traktor Scratch and it's time-coded control vinyl records on traditional turntables, adding the same direct tactile access to the software looping and effects capabilities that it added for software-only djs.

Where the Kontrol X1 and non-Scratch Traktor software didn't always hit on all cylinders was with djs who spin older or modern non-quantized or analog recorded/edited music, like 70's disco, live band music, or "world" music. Music with tempos that speed up and down randomly just doesn't play well with tools that expect a rigid "beat-grid" structure and trying to work with music like that with just increment-up/down buttons can be nightmarish.

I have had the S4 for almost a year (though it hasn't worked for almost 3 months).

It integrates flawlessly with Traktor and, if you are a controllerist or like using samples or 4-decks, I haven't found a better, compact alternative. However, I have a strong warning about tech support. Here's what I've gone through:

1) The power stopped working through both the USB and the power supply, so I called Tech Support to get a UPS label to get it serviced.

2) Three weeks later (after I call them again), they send me the label.

3) I send it in and wait a few weeks, then have to call them again to get a time estimate. After I call them, they send me another unit. The unit I receive is DOA (and it doesn't have a power supply) so I have to send that one back. They apologize for the inconvenience and say that they'll send me a brand new unit instead of a refurb and they'll send it immediately (as in, not wait to get the DOA unit back).

4) I send the DOA unit back and wait 2 weeks and still don't have a replacement. So, I call them again to ask when they will send a replacement. They say they'll send it the next day.

5) I wait another week and I still don't have a tracking number. So, I call them again to ask if they have shipped a replacement out. They haven't. They told me the DOA unit I sent back went to a service center and the service center has to ship a replacement but it would happen ASAP.

6) It's been 2 more days and I still haven't gotten any communication about when I will have a replacement unit.

So, basically, I haven't had an S4 for 3 months and I have no idea when I will get another.
