Native Instruments' new Kontrol S series was launched late in 2018, with the flagship of the popular controller range adding motorised jogs and extra controller features to the updated Traktor Pro 3 software. Refining rather than revolutionising the range, the S4 MK3 went back on NI's previous S5 and S8 range and re-introduced jog wheels, adding a motor and extra torque controls. They also added some Pioneer DJM-style one-knob effects per channel.
We grabbed a first look at the S4 MK3 in our latest video - see what we thought below and keep an eye on our YouTube channel for more videos.
