    Default Traktor Kontrol S4 - magnetic jogwheels or not?

    Hi guys,

    Just got my S4 today. I absolutely love it and everything works like a charm, except maybe one thing. The jogs work fine, but there's been a lot of talk about the magnetic tech built in to emulate a spinnin platter.

    Take a look at about 1:05 in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G1EVo8v3OG8 and you'll see the platter spinning backwards slightly after he releases it. I've also seen this in Ean's videos.

    Mine doesn't do this. My jogs stop exactly where you expect them to according physics law, like any spinning wheel would. No spinning back.

    Have you received your S4s? What's the behavior on your units?

    haven't heard any mention of that and can't see what you suggest.

    Mine just stops. I think what your seeing is Shiftee and Ean slightly pushing it just a tad.

    Well it's kind of obvious if you look closely in the video.

    my best guess is that they move from the motion of scratching with it. wiki wiki pull wiki wiki push?
