The Kontrol S4 MK2 is by far the best DJ controller I use. It’s fast and intuitive and lets me play around without a lot of work. The one issue I face while doing prep mixes is that it’s cumbersome to add my first beat grid marker and fix autogain – particularly while I’m mixing (and recording) live. These settings traditionally require jumping to my trackpad to change UI views and make adjustments.
To make that easier, I’ve created a custom mapping for my S4 MK2 to allow me to:
- zoom in and out of the waveform
- add beat grid marker and cue #4 with one click
- delete grid marker(s)
- adjust autogain
