    I said yes to all as the S3 spec page says it supports ASIO drivers so I was going off this.

    Thank you Cheef Roberts, Do you know if the cue works for the external line in with Traktor DJ 2 (ie ipad) where you can not route the line in via the software?

    I have never used TDJ2 or used an iPad to DJ with. I am windows laptop and TP3 only so I can't answer that I'm afraid.

    Hi,

    Just bought a Traktor Kontrol S3 today and I've been having absolutely nothing but issues with it from the get go.
    After a painful amount of time just trying to install all the programs needed to run it, I'm now stuck at a point where there is no sound. I can get the sound to play through my laptop speakers, but as soon as I swap over to my monitors, there is nothing. No sound and I am beyond over it.

    I've updated all my ASIO drivers and then finally, when I think I've found a solution, still nothing. A notification came up in Traktor Pro 3 saying the firmware needed to be updated for my S3, but shock horror as soon as I downloaded it and tried to install it, it keeps saying the controller isn't connected, despite the fact that it's not only lit up with all it's coloured lights, but I can physically control all of the parameters in Pro 3 with the controller, so I know it's connected. There has to be a solution to this? I'm really starting to regret moving over from Serato as I never had a single issue in the 5 years I've been using it, now, I'm hitting problems from the first day with this new software.

    Has anyone else had any issues similar to this, because I'm at my wits end with this thing.

    I had the same issue with Windows 8.1. The solution was update it to Windows 10 (for free).

    You shouldn't be browsing the internet on the same machine as DJing. Use a different machine for internet use and disable the network card of the DJ laptop is the recommended solution if you are having audio issues. It is not a problem with the S3.

    Now that I know Product Owners are not NI removing my comments.
    Probably Product Owner isn't the best title as it implies agile work title as someone that is responsible for a product..

    Hopefully I can get all resolve with NI support.

    Thanks Kalo for comfirming this mate.

    Hi mates .. 'Product Owner' are 'user' only, same you and me .. not assigned to NI company at all (i do not know why this forum uses the 'title' Product Owner close the Avatar, i dont like too) .. so we cannot request or pointing to user like Roberts etc.;). As i know NI folks are labeled with 'NI team'.

    Hi!
    Does anyone know when the asio driver for s3 will be released, also, the exact information of which sound card is in the s3 controller, which digital converters are in the sound card?
    Thanks!

    The 'specifications' page says the S3 supports ASIO drivers. Look under 'supported drivers' section.

    https://www.native-instruments.com/en/products/traktor/dj-controllers/traktor-kontrol-s3/

    Then again these product pages are riddled with mistakes. For example the S2 can play 4 decks apparently and has got line inputs. The S4 has the ability to adjust the start/stop brake time. All these are not possible. There are other lies on the S2 product page at the bottom that need updating to the correct information. It is as though they have copied and pasted the info from the S4.

    So I would think ASIO is not supported even though NI say it is if history is anything to go off.

    This info does not concern the S2 mk3 but Traktor Pro 3 software.
    Although I must agree about other mistakes in the product pages.
