    Default 1st impressions......

    Ok so my S4 came today, i sneaked home from work 40 mins early so i could get the software installed and have a quick play before the football was on @ 6pm. The software was painless to install, once i had done that and done the latest update it asked me if id like to copy all my files over from TSP which again was painless once it was done i fired up the controller and all i can say is FUCK ME!!! how fucking good are these S4 controllers!!!

    I fuckin love the damn thing seriously if your thinking about gettin one dont think anymore just go and buy one. Obviously i havnt even scratched the surface with it in 40 mins of playing on it but it just works. Sound quality is perfect, no cracks, pops or glitches, latency i got set down very low indeed. Love having the 4 channels again now, faders feel great, and i have to say im very impressed with the jog wheels after using cdjs for a lot of years going to the vci was hard as the jog wheels are nothing alike whereas these feel a lot more like im used too.

    I can manually beatmatch on it perfectly and ive noticed a difference in the sync facility whereas if you have the sync turned on and u notice one of the songs isnt perfectly synced you can get it right with the jogwheels and the sync function doesnt turn off like it did on TSP? is that right is this a new feature on the Pro S4 software?

    Lots of people say its too big but i think its perfect size, its not heavy and feels solid and has got a great looking finish i think.

    So to sum it up after a very short mess with it im in love with it, best thing ive ever bought cant wait to spend a good few hours on it over the weekend, think i might even smash a mix out on it

    Just thought id share my 1st impressions of it with you all

    Make sure you recalibrate the whole S4 Paul. Faders and knobs not just Jogs.
    They can unsettle in transit.

    Just go into Preferences > S4 section and follow the on screen directions. Its easy and takes a few minutes.

    i believe padi was the one who led me to the answer. :P

    i dont even use the loops/one shots that came with the s4... ive been making/slicing my own loops and clips in live and importing them (namedrops and whatnot.)
