....S4 KONTROL....

Native Instruments release the ultimate Traktor controller, the Kontrol S4, with built-in 4 channel sound card allowing four deck mixing, on-board sample controls and an all new dedicated Traktor Pro S4 software.

This device really is what controller based Traktor users have been waiting for, following the success of the Kontrol X1, the Kontrol S4 offers a built-in 4 in, 4 out soundcard with Native Instruments renowned 96 kHz, 24 bit sound quality, meaning that this controller will sound amazing on even the biggest club sound systems. Not only does the controller feature great sound, but also boasts high quality knobs and faders and also features patent pending Electro Magnetic jog wheel technology, giving them a better resistance and firmer feel so that they can withstand even the toughest professional use, and because Native Instruments use their own HID technology, the controls offer an extreme tight and accurate precision, far superior to MIDI.

The Kontrol S4 features on-board sample controls which can be used to playback and loop samples from your favourite sample banks or from the high quality sample and loop bank included with the controller. The sample controls can also be used to lift loops from whichever track is playing, so that they can be stored in Traktor Pro S4's all new loop library and played back later in the mix.

Because the S4 is designed and built by Native Instruments, the controls could not be better layed-out to suit the Traktor Pro S4 software, at the top of the controller you'll find effects parameters that mimic exactly what you'll see on screen, and in exactly the same position, making it easy to navigate in dark venues. The large 4 inch jog wheels are also centrely located and can be used for track searching, scratch control and pitch bend uses. The lower half of the controller features high quailty transport controls, as well as loop functions (including loop in and out, digital loop size display and loop size knobs), four hot cue controls, sample controls and of course, 4 channel faders with individual level displays, allowing simultanious four deck mixing.

Another exciting feature of the Kontrol S4 is the abilty to connect external devices such as a CDJ, turntable, or an external synth, allowing the DJ to play them 'thru' Traktor Pro S4, giving the DJ the ability to add Traktors effects to all your favourite tracks, whether they are on CD or vinyl. A software update will also allow the DJ to use timecode control to intergrate Traktor Scratch as well as the Kontrol S4 into your sets.

The new Traktor Kontrol S4 is set to revolutionise the way DJ's use Traktor, and again, change the face of digital DJ'ing.

....Tom Staar mini mix....

As well as helping develop the mighty Moda club night during his time on earth, and the music of acts such as Jaymo & Andy George and Doorly, Tom has now begun sharing his own cosmic productions.

Tom Staar, the third member of Team Moda, is fast becoming one of the UK’s most gazed upon producers. Working behind the scenes, Tom honed his skills as a Studio Engineer, working with some of dance musics most prolific names over a number of years. Now, as the moons align, Tom is finally ready to defend our humble with an interstellar spectrum of sonic ammunition. dancefloors

With two EP’s on Moda Music and remixes for Fenech Soler, Human Life & We Have Band already under his utility-belt, his credentials have seen him take-off all over the world, playing everything from 500 capacity club nights to 20,000 capacity festivals!

Tom Staar & Friends is the next chapter – a collaborations EP with Style Of Eye, Tony Senghore & Herve. Word on the flight deck is that this is shaping up to be completely and utterly off the chart!

With Moda club-nights kicking off all over Europe, the Moda Music label going from strength-to-strength, and now Tom’s own productions heading into orbit- there’s never been a more exciting time to watch the stars.
