Kontrol S4 MK3 Ninja
Description and Instructions
Latest version: 0.2.4
Updated: May 19, 2019
DISCLAIMER: Due to Kontrol S4 MK3 issue with LED Output we can not properly refresh the controller output by switching modifier state back to zero. This is why all new functions in the Shift layer are currently not supported with LED feedback.
This mapping will activate 4 additional pad modes. See provided JPG file for the list of all new features.
1. Tone Play:
Hold SHIFT and press PLAY to toggle the Tone Play Mode 'ON' and 'OFF'. Works with any cue =)
Ensure to enable the following setting: Preferences\Transport\Cue Play (CUP) Mode\ set to "Instant" (not "On Release" which is default setting)
2. Freeze Mode:
Hold SHIFT and press HOTCUES to toggle the Freeze Mode 'ON' and 'OFF'. The Flux Mode function will be activated automatically.

-Macro 3: LaserSlicer + Phaser + Peak Filter
-Macro 4: Gater + Zzzurp + WormHole
Note on PAD FX:
-Each deck uses 2 FX Units which means that you can control effects on Decks A and C independently of Decks B and D.
-The Echo Freeze button have built in fail/safe setting - once it is activated, the mapping will prevent you from selecting an other Deck or a Pad Mode until you de-activate the Echo Freeze button first. This way you won't have to think about whether you left it activated or not. You can also deactivate the Echo Freeze by Loading a corresponding Deck.
-Top four fx buttons are extension of a PAD FX. Use them in combination with pads for more instant grat effect controls.
Press a button to activate effects and keep it held down to modulate fx parameters automatically.
Download and unzip the file. Inside you should see one folder with mapping content. It is strongly recommended to back up all your current mappings and effect settings in the Controller Manager before importing this one because those will be overwritten in the step 2! And be aware that there is no undo.
1). Start Traktor and click the gear symbol to open the preferences window. Click the BIG IMPORT button which is located at the bottom of the preferences window and then navigate to the folder where the .tsi file is saved. Once you select the .tsi and click on OK the next window will pop-up asking you which settings do you wish to import - ONLY the "controller mappings" and the "effect settings' categories should be selected - then click on OK. Please note that you need to repeat this step one more time to successfully import the FX settings. (this only matters if you're installing this mapping for the first time)
2). Go into the Controller Manager's upper-right corner and make sure that the In-Port is set to your Kontrol S4 MK3 hardware.
If you want to add more controller mappings next to this one be sure to use smaller Import button which is located under Device Setup: Add > Import TSI > Import Other.
