More than ever in 2012, the four-deck controller market has become a crowded and competitive space. Numark’s latest Traktor-orientated offering stood out for us however, with its excellent build quality and seemingly indestructible metal casing.
While NI’s S4 may still beat it in terms of integration with Traktor, the 4Trak is unquestionably well spec’d and features an impressive stand-alone mixer.
Honourable mentions in the controller category go to two of Native Instruments' new crop of Traktor gadgets: the well implemented and brilliantly flexible Kontrol F1 Remix Decks controller, and the Z2 - the company's newly released, and impressively powerful control mixer.45 Stars
