 The Kontrol S4 MK2 is a 4 deck all-in-one controller with a sturdy build quality and integrated sound card. The MK2 has substantial improvements over the S4 MK1, including large multicolor buttons. The MK1 is not supported and cannot be supported because it uses a proprietary communication protocol exclusive to Traktor. The MK2 uses the standard HID protocol (also used by keyboards & mice) to send and receive signals from a computer, so it can work with Mixxx. The easiest way to tell the MK1 apart from the MK2 is the appearance of the jog wheel. On the MK1, the top of the jog wheel is black plastic; on the MK2, the top of the jog wheel is shiny aluminum. The Kontrol S4 MK2 is a 4 deck all-in-one controller with a sturdy build quality and integrated sound card.

-The mapping for the Kontrol S4 Mk2 is included in Mixxx 2.0, although it is incomplete. 
  
 The Kontrol S4 Mk2 can run from USB bus power. Using the separate power supply increases the brightness of the LEDs, which is helpful for using it in daylight, and increases the volume of the headphone output. The Kontrol S4 Mk2 can run from USB bus power.

-The Kontrol S4 MK2 is a USB class compliant audio, HID, and MIDI device, so it is compatible with Mixxx without any proprietary drivers on GNU/Linux and Mac OS X. On Windows, it is recommended to install the [[https://​www.native-instruments.com/​en/​support/​downloads/​drivers-other-files/​|driver from Native Instruments]] and select the ASIO sound API in the Sound Hardware section of Mixxx'​s Preferences. ​**There is currently a bug in the mapping preventing it from working on Windows.**+The Kontrol S4 MK2 is a USB class compliant audio, HID, and MIDI device, so it is compatible with Mixxx without any proprietary drivers on GNU/Linux and Mac OS X.

 With the S4 plugged in, a MIDI device is listed as an available controller in Mixxx'​s Preferences. That is the MIDI input/​output ports on the back of the S4 for connecting external MIDI gear; no mapping for the S4 will appear in the menu for the MIDI device. The controller uses HID for the knobs, buttons, and other components on the device, so the mapping can only be loaded when you select the HID device on the left side of Mixxx'​s Preferences. With the S4 plugged in, a MIDI device is listed as an available controller in Mixxx'​s Preferences.
