    if it was a hardware mixer it would just work when you turned it on?

    Maybe something to do with the new mixer effects, since basically the Filter knobs are software based, not an internal effect like a true standalone mixer? Just a guess.
    Then again the Filter has always been an effect and not hardware based. Selectable modes in preferences.
    I can't remember if the S8 was able to be used without the software as a mixer? But they do refer to the buttons as a standalone mode.

    I'm saying maybe(maybe cause I don't know), there is a difference in the Traktor S4 and how the mixer is integrated with software and other hardware mixers you can buy, due to the recently added (software based) mixer effects.
    Just speculation as to why the standalone mixer mode without Traktor (a computer) running, isn't available.

    A hardware mixer is standalone and the effects and filters and such are not software based.

    Will the s4mk3 fit in the same sized case as the s4mk2 Like a odyssey glide case?

    hello everyone
    i wonder if the s4 will eventually be supported by their upcoming ios app.
    they're gonna release a new ios traktor app at least for s2 mk3. any clues if s4 will work with that too?
    does s4 mk2 work with traktor dj?

    Yes. Overmapping is coming soon.

    So mapping override?
    Like they introduced to the old S4.
    I never used the midi mode. I only used override.
    For the S4mk3 a midi mode is useless in my opinion. Anyone buying this controller and painstakingly mapping it is better off with a used mk2 or even a more basic jog controller.
    The S2mk3 would be ok for midi mode.

    Please let it be override commands!

    I see the S4 Mk3 controller is now out there, the motorised jogs look wicked ! Any news on when firmware will be updated to allow standalone effects (i.e. not run by the software) ?

    Hi all, I really like TT mode but when press cue it goes back to cue point then keeps playing and you have to pause the deck then press your cue marker to go back m. This is really strange and would be so much better like jog mode functionality.

    TT mode is completely illogical. It should behave exactly as the normal mode, otherwise you have to learn 2 different modes and basically, until they do it, I just don't use it, cause it makes no sense.

    I agree.
    I'm hoping some more updates happen.

    Me too. I am sure they will as reputable dj reviews have also picked up on the strange TT cue behaviour. Have you noticed the drift also in jog mode of the jog led's? Another thing is i am not able to load a track into the preparation playlist using the specific browser control button. Anyone else have this issue? J

    I think they still clean the bugs, and soon we'll see the update. I noticed some strange issues too..
