This new product developed by Native Instruments will be a four-deck DJ controller. It will be named Traktor Kontrol S3, being the new item of the Traktor Kontrol family.

The Traktor Kontrol S3 is an upgraded version of the S2, which only had 2 channels. It is an important step forward in the company as they built a DJ controller to learn and begin in the world of DJing but being able to use four channels.

The set price for this controller will be $649 or £499. It will have large jog wheels with a cool lighting effect that warns DJs when a track is close to the end. In addition, this Kontrol S3 will be plug and play with the pro DJ software Traktor Pro 3 being included.

This beautiful controller also includes full EQ, filters and built-in effects that you can adjust with Serato. You will be able to use two pairs of eight RGB pads for live DJing. Loops, hot cues, and samples will be at the reach of your hand.
