X1's totally yes, seen everywhere. Anyway to be positive, I thought the IOS 7 issue was fixed now? I used to have an S4 and I've always found them to be reliable...... apart when switching back and forth with a mike on Channel D.
If the question is what is the best controller for Traktor the answer is probably the S4. The new model will eventually prove itself; its a different chip set and I'm sure future versions of traktor will show a bigger gap between the Mk1 & Mk 2.
If you can afford it they newer unit will have greater longevity, mind you I'll say that again in 18 months when the Mk 3 comes out.
Sorry didnt mean to turn this into a ios 7 post, or bashing on the s4 either. I want to use the s4, I had the s2 and loved it but prefer 4 channel controllers and traktor. I also had the 4trak and altho i thought it was nice to me the sound quality was not very good. I am just reading issues with the s4 so i am afraid of the reliability thing not just in clubs but mobile djn parties or anything.

If you want Traktor reliability then it's either the S2 or S4 because they're Traktor-native.
Why would anything else be more reliable when it has to rely on MIDI for Traktor integration?
If the S2/4 MK2 are suffering from 'issues', then you can sure NI would be working on these. My opinion, is always go native with your controller / software combination.

vci 100 se?
going to be the best controller for the next upcoming years
What did you dislike specifically about your numark 4trak? I used to have an S4 but it got stolen and I replaced it with a 4trak but sadly I find myself not very happy with it… I can't even really figure out why, it's a decent enough controller but I'm beginning to consider selling it and moving on or just sticking with traktor scratch when i play out, maybe get an X1...
