What is the sweet spot for using Traktor Pro 3 and Kontrol S4 (mk1) on a macOS

Gotha Member Posts: 1 Newcomer

Currently running macOS 11: Big Sur and I plan to downgrade to the best possible version of macOS for using Traktor Pro 3 and Kontrol S4 (mk1). And what is the latest macOS for Traktor Pro 2 and S4 (mk1)?

    Hey @Gotha

    As you already know, the S4 MK1 is not compatible with macOS Catalina, Big Sur, or Monterey. To be able to use your device, you will need to downgrade to macOS Mojave or earlier, and then follow the steps in the link below:

    Operation of NI Legacy Hardware Devices on macOS 10.12 - 10.14

    Downgrading will not be possible if you have an M1, M1 Max, or M1 Pro processor.

    For more information on the compatibility of Native Instruments products for macOS, please refer to the article below:

    Compatibility of Native Instruments Products on macOS

    To answer your last question, the last supported OS for S4 MK1 (as well as Traktor Pro 2) is macOS 10.14

    I hope this information helps. Feel free to reach out if you have further questions.
