    That would be MK2 in Kontrol S8 case :) but nobody here knows if we will see the update. I hope so.

    The S8 is the reason that I continued in music. it was a decade early thats the issue. there is nothing today besides the Pioneer that touches it. even though the person tasked to answer this question probably did not know this. I wanted it all and abhor jog wheels. So what you probably did not know is the feature list of the S8 its insane. 1st off my sync works always has and I edit grids on the unit and my S8 has been used as

    just a mixer stand alone.

    It is a ridiculously capable and programable control surface for Ableton.

    The stems decks made specifically to separate 4 programable stems from any track

    I have had a XONE MIXER -TRAKTOR PRO+ not needed

    I remix decks should have a page of its own

    2 screens for AB CD decks in any config

    PHASE

    BPM

    WAVEFORM

    EFFECTS

    TEMPO TAP

    BEATGRID EDIT

    AUTO MIX MENU

    KEYS & SUGGESTED IN MENU

    IN OUT LOOPING

    PER STEM EFFECTS

    HERE ARE THE KICKERS

    BEAT STEP SEQUENCER BUILT IN -TRAKTOR PRO+ not needed

    LOOP RECORDER any deck to a slot in remix deck

    SEPARATE SYNC FOR REMIX SAMPLES

    SEPARATE EFFECTS FILTER PER SAMPLE

    Will sync midi with MACHINE MIDI io

    SLR out

    RCA

    TRS in out

    4 DECK MIXER - needs one more knob + kills for freq in xone mode the best mode

    So yes it was ahead of its time but it is a DAW honestly not for the non audio geek.

    you would have cornered the market if you just had one thing and thats a modular friggin jog wheel component. The one reason that this controller spoke to me is that music in a circle is un natural

    we did it for so long that it became the cornerstone of mixing . . . . for a while. I fortunately have had the opportunity to laterally purchase music in vinyl. cassette. CD. HDcd. DVD audio. the list goes on mini disk laser disk etc. I fell in love with mixing vinyl however it was a serious mental struggle for me because when i think of music i think of it linearly. how it is written and expressed in everything else but playback. thats why i did not continue it was easy for me to visualize the music but yet i had to fight with my reflexes to to something completely un natural like driving a car with handlebars to a few that ride thats fine but for everyone else its like trying to rub your stomach and pat your head at the same time. However cringe to me it is the industry and if you had all of the features in something with jog wheels the real titans would have at least adopted them and I believe the landscape would look alot different. I laugh when people actually advertise stems because it has been a mainstay feature on my first and only piece of DJ specific music gear. It however will not be my last and although I had no idea what a change in everything that brings me joy about music one piece of gear could make. I wanted to start producing not DJ ing and I purchased ableton the push maschine a couple of keyboards but never truly got the joy of listening to anything because i never finished a track. wow but even if i returned the 2 DJ specific controllers i tested could not work with I and they had no tech. tech i knew was out there. I was waiting for it. I have followed source separation since the first University contest. i was looking to sell my gear for production and would have left me with no creation gear bound to just liten to music Solley and came across the S8 and I had to have it I saw it in a used electronics store background on their website and i was able to make out the bold TRAKTOR on the front and im like what is that. it took me a couple days to nail down what it was. And DISCONTINUED? I had to find one I did and have been a Native instruments tracktor maschine Reakt User die hard ever since. I dont want to buy the Pioneer but for the first time in over a decade another company has out teched you and. I dont wanna go but I purchased this 2nd hand from a store I have no support and want nothing more than to see another s8 I am willing to fund dev with hours uppon hours of testing and direct honesty feedback. I randomly search the web weekly to see if you are going to do it Please do. I dont want to go to the darkside. If you build it they will come.
