    Hi guys

    Have recently succumbed to temptation and swapped out my Kontrol Z2 for an S4 Mk3 (the limited edition purple was the last straw). It feels very different, and I am still getting used to it. The S4 is fun though! Jog wheels are new for me, and I love the idea that with my 1210s, I could play across 4 decks in a way the Z2 can’t (I use remix decks but want to be able to flip, too)

    The problem I am finding is that the S4 is a bit laggy, or non-responsive. I had some issues calibrating Traktor control vinyl but that seemed to sort itself out.

    Now though, I don’t know. I have been using Traktor with analog mixers for years and this is the first time I have found that pitch changes on a TT don’t immediately translate to BPM changes within TP. I don’t get it. I can crank the pitch right down and take 20 BPM out of a track, but TP still thinks its playing at the same rate . Playback is of course, as expected, pitch bended and BPM down – but the apparent digital BPM is unchanged, or very slow to change - at best it is taking 1.5 -2 seconds to recover the true bpm (this is regalrdess of keylock) If I want to sync a remix deck (which I do) to decks A or B or pick up samples from A or B, forget it.

    This is very obviously an S4 Mk3 problem. Any ideas?
