1. We're currently conducting systematic tests with the release version of macOS 11 (Big Sur) in order to offer full compatibility of our products as soon as possible. You can find our latest compatibility status - here


    Please note that although announced at the same time as macOS Big Sur, Apple Silicon processors are an independent release with separate compatibility concerns for NI products. Compatibility with macOS Big Sur will not yet ensure compatibility with Apple Silicon processors. At the moment, Native Instruments products are not supported on computers with Apple Silicon processors. Read more - here

    Big name having technical problems with the S4? Sounds familiar.

    The only things seemed to be how much things cost, and that the S4 is identical to a Nexus setup?

    Traktor is easier to use than the CDJs as everything syncs nicely without any effort from the user, whereas sync on the Nexus requires carefully tweaked beatgrids (Rekordbox struggles with this)

    She also uses a MBP, so is everyone going to sell that too?

    I think that somehow this is a win for NI. I can just see the new tagline:

    "The Kontrol S4... so simple an heiress can use it!"

    "The Kontrol S4... for people who are used to pressing people's buttons."

    "The Kontrol S4... Move past your inheritance and own any crowd."

    It's 1/10 of the cost. Each CDJ is ~$2000. So a nexus system would cost $6,000+ vs. $600 for the S4 + laptop. HUGE savings.


    Again, that shows that since she COULD buy the nexus or use the nexus, she instead is making some logical decisions about how she works best. That's it. That's the point of what I was getting across. Feature by feature, she still picked the less expensive system so there had to be a reason why. Well... she connected with it better for whatever reason.

    That's cool probably a good creative outlet. I'd say it takes more guts to put herself out there. Knowing people will be so critical. The outfit she wore was nice to. Not a sideways hat with a rock star shirt(that I would wear).something that fit her usual style. And fit her.
    I have to give props here.
