So, yesterday I read about 20 posts about midi mode on S4 mk3 - but still I didnt find correct answer, some says that S4 dont have midi mode (example, for ableton midi controller), some says that have.

In some posts I found that shift+browse switch controller to midi mode, but this dont work on my controller.

And in manuals I didnt find any sign of midi mode.

Is it available, and how to enter midi mode? I am using ableton live, so I want to map some S4 knobs and faders for ableton.

    The s4mk3 doesn't have a midi mode. It just has a stand-alone mode for the mixer section.

    Who ever said MIDI mode works in S4 MK3 have no idea about it. It never had a MIDI mode and that's a bummer.

    If you need a MIDI controller look elsewhere. S4 MK3 is locked down to Traktor (NI loves to lock down things)

    It works on Mixxx and I think virtualDJ. But yes, it's HID only so devs have to spend extra effort to implement it into their software :(

    To shame for NI!


    Is there any second way (maybe some software or hack) to fix this?

    I believe I have a solution. It's just a proof of concept but it works for me in a Spotify mod for S4MK3. Still working on packaging it in a usable product...
