Add the code to the voucher Box, it just Helps out a Bit
Very hot this, I don't think this deal will get the heat it deserves, Traktor products very rarely go in the sale, I'm a S4 MK2 user and took me over a year to get £20 off, if you're buying the S8 or something this is a great saving. Great find OP
Add this deal, with the deal link, to the FB HUKD group, and Tweet them also.

I did the same and then realised how badly behind the Pioneer software developers were in their track analysis algorithms and platform stability and moved back after 2 years of trying to make RKB work. Horses for courses but Pioneer are over rated in my opinion.

Don't get me wrong Traktor is great, and it's very stable. I can just do so much more with Rekordbox, using a DDJ1000. And so far its been pretty reliable. Track analysis has gotton much better with Rekordbox, when I first tried it afew years ago it was terrible
The S2 mk3 is good value at this price point with included TP3. Missing a few features tho which is a bit of a sour note. The S4 looks fantastic but is a lot of money even with the 25% off...
Very nice deal. £186 odd for an: S2 instead of £250 might tempt a few looking for a cheap controller.
Ordered a DJ cable this morning from elsewhere, funny timing.
Amazingly this doesn’t actually work on the software itself, only the hardware that I tried.

Thanks! By far my favourite DJ and has been for 20+ years, and rather bizarrely his Mother used to be my Welsh language teacher in high school!

True but the problem lies in that every nightclub and studio you go to will use Rekordbox/Pioneer. Rekordbox is industry standard, using anything else just causes problems. I've loved serato for years but everyone uses CDJs and XDJs = Rekordbox. Taking anything else to club/radio station in the past has just caused a lot of unnecessary issues.

This is great for home use and house parties, mobile djs etc etc

Now I haven’t DJ’d a club in my life so can’t talk from experience. As a hobbyist DJ what I had grasped is that traktor is the leading software & pioneer was the leading manufacturer of controllers due to superior build. I have used rekordbox years back & it felt like it should be put in the virtual dj category for the like you say the non serious bedroom DJ, but to say that traktor is non industry standard & for house parties seems crazy to me.

It’s kinda right, sadly
Pioneer has this perceived aura of ‘cool’ about it, ever since early CDJs were industry standard - they have already embraced their ecosystem in clubs and stuck with it.
Traktor is far better than RKB and much more versatile, but try slugging your S2/4/8 into a club and prepare to get laughed or scowled at.
For this reason, I analyse everything in both softwares to encrypt the metadata in every MP3, so when I do rock up anywhere to play, I can work it on Pioneer’s kit.
Alternatively, you can just download RekordBox and analyse your tracks without having to ever buy a Pioneer controller. That’s what I do.
(By the way, the S2 here is a complete bargain for beginners & pro’s - I’ve always found that controller to be solid and does more than I ever need (four trigger pads + 3 fx per channel is more than enough - plus there’s the option for stems, but meh, only real nerds use them out live and barely much music is stemmed).

Yeah Rekordbox has come along way now. Traktor is awesome if your a producer using other Native Instruments software/hardware. After years of trying them all in different situations I would suggest sticking to Rekordbox if you play out regularly. This is still super hot BTW, dont let my cryptic industry analogy get in the way of anyone's purchase, awesome bits of kit:)

Quite an eye opener. I have the Kontrol S4 mk2 and found it’s a very capable controller and traktor 3 gives a lot. The thought didn’t cross my mind to think DJ snobbery was so prevalent out there. Either way, rock up at places like pirate studios where they provide Pioneer kit & anything you practiced on Native instrument controllers is completely transferable. It’s sad that this is the case, judged straight away on the clothes on your back & what you have rather than skill

Fashion and music are very close bedfellows and this extends into the kit.

If you learn on Traktor then, as you say, the skills are transferable, albeit with a few quirks.
The S8 ‘flagship’ controller looks blooming terrible. No platter and that weird needle drop touchpad. I still feel whatever digital controller you use to DJ live, something resembling a tactile platter is essential.
Then again, when I started out on CDJ800s we used to sneer at the younger DJs fiddling around on Ableton Live with just trigger pads. The times are always a’ changin’.
