dissapointing

There are a number of features which are a huge backward step for the S2 MK2.

Firstly, the master volume knob doesnt work.

The gain knob on channel 1 reads 0 when its set on about -2

Effects rack is like going from 9/10 on the MK1 to a 3/10 on the MK2

The inability to scroll down the side bar, meaning I always have to be fiddling with the laptop, and not the controller.

Pretty disappointing, definitely will not be recommending this controller to anyone.

    Give it some time for development.

    Do yuo have the same issues when you try to map with MIDI mode?

    It has been out almost 5 years. Do you think they will change anything on that controller?

    I don't get why they completely dropped fx control on s2 and s3. One of the reasons I bought a s4.

    You answer your question there. Also they added Mixer FX as a "substitute" for lack of fx controls.

    Take a look at the manual:

    Rather than selecting a Favorite folder using SHIFT, you can also scroll along the Browser Tree to

    select the subfolders. To implement this, you need to switch the Browse behavior for the SHIFT

    button on the TRAKTOR S2 MK3 page in the Preferences.

    Does the gain knob have a large dead space? Or is it not properly adjusted? I mean if it's at 0 on the hardware, is it at +2 in software? Or does nothing happen around -2 to +2?

    Mk2 has endless encoders instead of standard knobs like the EQ and FX sections. Should be fixable with overmapping if not a hardware problem.

    Just tested S2 MK2 with 3.10 and didn't have any issues with controlling the Gain.
