    This software knob IS NOT controlled by the MAIN knob on the top of the S2/4.



    why doesn't the s4 control the main volume in the software anymore?????

    The S4 Main knob is a hardware volume knob and never actually changed the Traktor main level setting.

    You shouldn't need to touch your software main level once you have done your sound check. If you are running a gig that starts quiet early and builds up later, this is what you use the S4 Main knob for.

    Hey I have Traktor kontroller s4 and can not get it to cue in my ear and play out at the same time. I have USB monitors (ALESIS M1 Active 520 USB) plugged upto my PC, they have there own sound card with ports, which I have plugged in from double jack to double RCA to the kontroller. I currently have the S2 drivers which dont work, only my monitors show up in the audio settings. Can anyone help me?

    Thanks

    Hi, am hoping to use my Traktor s4 at a club next weekend. If I use two TRS to XLR cables and plug the decks straight into speakers, will this work alright or do I need anything else? Hoping not to need a club mixer, as I am setting up the second room so keeps costs down if can just use the Traktor.
    Thanks

    If you are bringing your own speakers, then that will be fine. Otherwise check with the club to confirm how to connect as a house mixer is very likely to be there anyway.

    Hey everyone,

    I had to reformat my Laptop recently, I've installed everything, including Traktor(with all recent driver updates i believe). My problem is the music can be heard through the headphones at all times even without cue being selected. And when I press the cue button associated with the channel the music is playing in, it makes the sound loader through the headphones and through the speakers. I've owned my S4 MK2 for three years and have never encountered this problem..

    any and all help would be greatly appreciated!

    I have mk1, turning the Cue Mix knob all the way to the left can help.

    Thanks for that, but I knew that already..I was sure before that I only heard the music through the headphones when a cue button was enabled. I had always positioned the Cue Mix knob in the middle, have no idea what I've done, or how to fix..tried many things posted on the internet lol

    I've already messaged NI but got no reply.

    Basically I can't cue headphone, I can get sound but no headphone cue. I've been on your help pages and forum and you tube tutorials, but they all say the same thing and ask you to select options not available to select on my screen. I've tried following instrctions in the above but with nol joy - what amik dloing wrong? I'm using macbook, Traktor s2 mark 2, USB, Ysplit jack into djm600 mixer, (which I also use for my stand alone decks, not timecode). I also have A6 scratch interface and line in cables, but do not have it connected to anything as i'm not sure of the cabling and how to connect it, or whether i even need it. Do I have to use the A6 interface with the controller and macbook to be able to cue? In the audio set up in traktor where it says audio device i have to put it into bjuilt in mode as if i put it in Traktor mode i get no sound at all. This means I can't select output monitor headphone L and R and Master output L and R. I can only think my cabling is wrong but there is nowhere to help advise on where to put cables. I have bought every cable I can think of and keep tryikng different configurations but STILL no joy, its driving me mad. Please, please please can you help a girl out and help me with this query??

    Put the A6 to one side and ignore it. Just focus on the S2.

    You also mention a Y cable and a DJM600 - also disconnect that and put it to one side.

    Get the S2 working properly first before you start connecting anything else.

    1. Connect the S2 to the computer with the USB cable.
    2. Connect your headphones directly to the S2. No Y cables or unnecessary adapters - just straight into the front of the S2.
    3. Plug the S2 into external power for best results.
    4. In Traktor, select the S2 as the audio device and set up the audio routing as per the first post in this thread.
    5. Play a track and press the CUE button. Make sure your CUE VOL is turned up and CUE MIX is set to the middle position.

    Post screenshots and some photos of your connections if you are still having problems.

    I have s2 mk3. I can get sound from the speaker. But I can't get cue sound from my headphones. But... I connected with Bluetooth to the speaker from my laptop. (Is it possible using with this way, I don't know) I can choose this from Traktor in the audio device. I choose s2 mk3 in the built-in soundcard part. Then, when I come to output part, I can't see headphone choosing, there is the only spear L R (in output monitor and output master). Taking cue sound, I should choose differently on output monitor I guess, but I can't see any choice.

    I found this video, and he chooses one for output monitor, one for output master. But he uses Traktor cable for the mono signal. Should I use the same cable?

    Please help me! Thanks.
