Kontrol S3 Spotted In Traktor Pro 3.3 Public Beta

This is a photoshop mockup, we don't know what the real unit will look like. Speculate in the comments with us?

Remember how the Native Instruments team promised there would be new Traktor hardware before the end of the year? There’s a chance that the first hints of that are coming true, with a new preferences menu appearing in the public beta release of Traktor Pro 3.3 reading “Traktor S3”:

Sadly in the actual menu itself, there are no revealing details beyond the fact that there will be tempo faders:

What’s A Kontrol S3?

While we’re not sure of any specific details so far, it would stand to reason that a Kontrol S3 would be something between a Kontrol S2 and a Kontrol S4 – perhaps with three decks, or a slightly expanded set of controls from a Kontrol S2 MK3 with a middle-of-the road price point to match?

And what about a Kontrol S1? We’ve heard many Traktor DJ’s over the years ask for a single-deck controller for Traktor (like D2 but with a jogwheel). We can dream, right?
