What is the SUPER S5?
Just like an Iron Man suit is an addition of super-human powers to an ordinary person, the new SUPER S5 Midi Map is also an extension to the original features the Traktor S5 offers.
The Super S5 is not to replace how the Traktor S5 is used, but to work alongside the original mode of the Traktor S5, simply pressing a button switches you into Super S5 mode (Midi Mode) and brings you full feature requests such as LOOP BUTTONS and complete LOOP RECORDER control, but also new additions like the innovative KEYNOTE PADS, PITCH BEND TOUCHSTRIP and the not-so-innovative but most wanted LOOP ROLL TOUCHSTRIP.
All features described above work per deck, once in SUPER S5 mode you can still select each deck and a SHIFT-MODE too alongside all fully functional central mixer controls as you go. Then just flick back to normal mode for full TRAKTOR S5 controls.
Perform and play cue/freeze points with different pitches to emulate a playable keyboard or notes from cue or freeze points
Pitch Bend TouchStrip
Bend the pitch/key of the deck like a keyboard using the touchstrip
Segmented 4x Loop BUTTONS instead of using knob
Loop Roll Touchstrip
Use the touchstrip just like Pioneer’s Loop Roll and flux mode.
Loop Recorder Control
Full Loop Recorder Control to record all previous actions as a performance loop
What are the KeyNote Pads?
This brings originality and the chance to be extremely unique in your performance. Imagine playing a track to your audience, but instead of waiting for the track to finish you are working on a bassline, or melody from a cue point directly in your headphones, ready to unleash an original loop into your mix and maybe even layer these creations by using a Remix Deck.
What can I do with the Loop Recorder?
This allows improvised control when recording loops and overdubs, and the speed of loading into a remix deck slot to use in your mix or future performances.
Imagine – populating your remix deck slots so quickly from improvised performances secretly in your headphones all on the fly ready to mix into your set. This gives a chance of completely reworking or remixing a track live and another great transition tool.
Stand out from the crowd and bring something unique to your performances with SUPER S5.
TIP: Make sure Loop Recorder source is set to ‘CUE’, this way you can create unique loops secretly in your headphones ready to mix.
