Native Instruments TRAKTOR KONTROL S3 4-Channel DJ Controller

The Native Instruments TRAKTOR KONTROL S3 4-Channel DJ Controller gives you pristine, punchy sound with a high dynamic range.

Do More with Four

Layer tracks. Go back-to-back. Hook up a mic and an MC. Keep a wildcard up your sleeve and drop it when the dancefloor needs it: TRAKTOR KONTROL S3 has everything you need to DJ across four decks. Step up your sets, and play with total freedom.

Four Deck DJing

If you have been DJing on two channels so far, doubling down on decks means way more freedom in your mix – like layering beats, firing off samples, or keeping a banger track parked on Deck C. Whether you’re throwing in acapella or love a double drop, four decks make it happen.

Layer Beats

From blending drum parts to polyrhythmic excursions, layering drums is a sure-fire way to energize your sets, build soundscapes, and take the audience on a real trip.

WildCard Track

Know a track that will set the roof on fire? Keep it loaded on your fourth deck, tease a short loop, then drop it when the time’s right to set things off, or when you need some serious fire to bring a crowd back to the dancefloor.

One-Shots and Loops

Blend percussion, acapella, and soundscapes on the first three channels, with extra space for triggering samples and additional loops on the fourth – great for complex layering, or just for launching that one-shot with your DJ name.

Acapellas

From hard chops to soulful vocal mixes ripped from a record store find, throw an acapella into the melting pot at peak-time for singalong re-edits the world will only hear once.

Four Decks at your Fingertips

At the heart of the TRAKTOR KONTROL S3 is the four-channel mixer, with full-length faders, EQ, cueing, and Mixer FX control over each deck. Juggle Hotcues, samples, and loops with eight RGB pads on each deck. When it’s time to take things further, switch decks and keep on track with the jog wheel light rings.

From Scratches to Spinbacks

When it’s time to get your mix on, there’s plenty of jog wheel to go around. Touch-sensitive and super smooth, they’re not just for nudging and stalling but feel great for scratch workouts too. RGB light rings let you know which deck is playing at a glance and warn you when you’re almost out of track.

Re-Edit, Rework, Reinvent

Fire off samples, loop drum patterns, chop in vocal cuts, or even work your productions into the mix if that’s your thing. Loop any part of a track and assign it to a pad, or skip to any part of your track using Hotcues. TRAKTOR PRO’s beat-sync means you’ll never lose the groove.

Mixer FX

Cut the kick and open a reverb, or chop things up with a dotted delay – Mixer FX are one-touch effects on each channel, great for building energy, shaping your sound, or just going wild. Choose from eight effects and three filters, and assign them to the dedicated slots on the mixer for quick access.

TRAKTOR PRO 3

TRAKTOR KONTROL S3 comes paired with the full version of TRAKTOR PRO 3, packed with expressive features and re-edit tools for truly unique, performative mixing.

Four Decks

Mix tracks, live inputs, Remix decks, Stems, and loops on up to four decks to create a unique sound.

Temp Sync

Automatic beatgrids and beat matching keep everything in sync, giving you more time to get creative in your mix.

Cueing

Jump between breaks and drops, or mix in a track from exactly where you want.

Looping

Trigger loops for extended mixes, track manipulation, and re-edits

Flux Mode

Get confident with chops, stops, and backspins without losing your position on a track.

FX Suite

From sweeping filters to dubbed-out delays: Build atmosphere with over 40 beat-synced effects in endless combinations.

Mixer FX

Easily create huge drops, dramatic buildups, and smooth transitions with dedicated one-knob FX.

Customizable Layout

See only the tools you need for your DJ style with a flexible user interface.

DJ Everywhere with iOS

Grab a portable speaker, hook up an iPad, and take your S3 on the road with TRAKTOR DJ 2 – mix with two channels on a streamlined interface, and dig through a bottomless record crate with SoundCloud Go+ integration.

High-Fidelity, Better Connected

Set up and spin with punchy, pro-grade XLR and RCA main outputs with a huge dynamic range, as well as a 1/4 inch TRS booth output, and 3.5/ 6.3 mm headphone outputs. For hooking up a vocalist or MC, there’s a dedicated combo XLR input on board, as well as an additional RCA input for mixing with external audio.
