Traktor Audio Setup

Select the the Audio Setup tab in the column to the left. Ensure that the settings are as follows:

Traktor Output Routing

Select the Output Routing tab. Ensure the settings are as follows:

Routing the audio cables on the S4

Because Traktor is sending audio to Output, and Mixlr is trying to receive audio from the Input, you'll need to set up some additional routing via your S4 controller.

To ensure that the Traktor audio can be received in Mixlr, use phono to phono cables to route 'Main Out 1 and 2' to 'Input Channel C 1 and 2' on the S4.


Use the remaining outputs in 'Main Out' to connect your speakers.

Select Traktor S4 in the Mixlr app

Open the Mixlr desktop app.

Click 'Select Source' for the MIC or ANY INPUT channel and select 'Traktor Kontrol S4 > Channels 1 and 2'.

TIP: if you're having problems with the Mixlr app receiving audio signal, check that you have the latest Traktor drivers installed. You can download the latest drivers here.

Click 'Start' to broadcast your Traktor mix live on Mixlr!
