Any news on a traktor s4 Mk4 being released anytime soon?

The MK3 feels pretty dated when compared to Pioneer and co latest controller. I love traktor but others offer more and I need to upgrade… :-(

    What are you missing on the S4MK3 hardware?

    Does it? While there is always room for improvements I feel like the s4 mk3 is one of the better controllers when it comes to modern 4 channel ones.

    It's also one of the latest NI controllers and just a few weeks ago NI produces a detailed 4 episode long course on youtube. I don't think they would spend the money on that when they will release a refresh soon.

    Anyhow, as for your question: Nope. No news on any hardware. About 2 years back they said they are working on ~something~ but we don't know what.

    Exactly what @lord-carlos said. I love my s4 mk3. Just like I loved my mk1 and mk2. There is practically nothing I would change on it and I CERTAINLY wouldn't want an update just for the sake of updating it.

    Hi all, I think the S2 and S4 Mk3 controllers have limitations (eg too short pitch travel and no proper master output, plus booth output with small jack cable which is embarrassing). The Mk2 versions seem to me the best releases, not surprisingly many people continue to use the Mk2 and have never switched to the Mk3. For this reason, many traktor users await the release of the MK4, which we hope will happen soon .... and which hopefully will take over some features from MK2 (including the RCA booth output) and be equally practical. The way I think the Mk3 came out badly as an idea.

    Does the s4 mk3 not have all that you want? Long pitch fader, balanced master and booth, additional RCA master)

    S4 MK3 has more bugs than any other hardwere in my workshop here. They just need to implement fixes... The hardware is great just need software tweaking and could be pefect.
