The Traktor Kontrol S4 in Action

The Traktor Kontrol S4 is retardedly cool. Not only is it perfect for parties with friends and messing around but think about what you could do with this thing if you started recording your own samples! You should really watch this video and see how easy it is to do some sick ass audio mixing live with this one interface..and it looks madd fun! Personally, I’m waiting until my local Guitar Center has a show model for me to play with before I think about getting one. For $1,000 bucks, it has potential to be a great investment.

JazzMutant’s Mu – Ableton Live multi-touch controller for the Lemur

It’s really amazing what Mu enables artists to do from the Lemur device. Speaking of the Lemur..it is itself an incredibly cool tool, with other software available for it now too. With a price tag of  just over $2,000 including shipping, it’s definitely an investment, but with that kind of versatility, it might even be worth more..


Mu was created out of a desire to build the ultimate controller for Ableton Live. Max/MSP, with it’s integrated OSC support has long been been a perfect partner to JazzMutant’s groundbreaking Lemur controller. The arrival of Max for Live meant that access to the inner workings of Ableton Live was finally available to the Lemur via our old friend. Mu refers not only to a dynamic control template for the Lemur but also to the Max for Live plugin by the same name which we’ve programmed so you don’t have to.

With our entirely plug and play system you can finally touch Ableton Live and simply focus on the music. Of course, we haven’t forgotten about the JazzMutant programming enthusiasts and the open architecture of Mu will provide a wonderful starting point for your own Max for Live experimentations and performance systems.

Very Cool Interview with professional DJ and Lemur user Gui Boratto:

Why did you choose to use it above other products on the market?

JazzMutant’s Lemur is a very unique piece. You can design your own faders, buttons, knobs…plus, you can control many devices at the same time. I don’t see any other machine that can match this.
