    What version of the S4 do you have? Is it a MK1, MK2 or MK3?

    What are you doing? What happens? What did you expect? And are the drivers installed? Traktor Pro 3 up and running?

    I've tried just plugging it in via the USB, it doesn't work, no reaction from the mixer etc. I kind of just expected to plug it in and it would work, I've not had a Mac before so a bit lost on how it all works, with my ASUS laptop you just plugged it in and it worked. Traktor Pro 3 is installed and running, not got a clue what a driver is though... Sorry pretty useless with Tech, had old vinyl decks before but now trying to get used to these new ones

    Mhh, turns out you don't need any drivers for that device on mac. Then I am also at a loss.

    Does it have access to the microphone?

    I don't know if it's really necessary but it could be, in my case it is because timecode.

    I am having the same exact issue! I have a Mac OS Sonoma 14.4.1 and I cannot get the hardware to connect for the life of me. Can someone please help? I have tried EVERYTHING. - Jessica L.
