How To Disassemble Traktor S4: Complete Step by Step with Narration
Native Instruments Traktor channel fader issues are frustrating! With new upgraded replacement Traktor channel faders, you will be back in the mix shortly. The upgraded Traktor channel faders utilize a dust cover to limit the amount of dirt, debris and liquid contamination onto the electronic circuitry inside.

The RDG-001 are linear taper. What this means is a smooth fade in from 0 to 100% volume. However, the relationship between channel fader and software fade will not be in sync if a audio taper is used.
Linear vs. Audio
Potentiometers, or “pots” to electronics enthusiasts, are differentiated by how quickly their resistance changes. In linear pots, the amount of resistance changes in a direct pattern. If you turn or slide it halfway, its resistance will be halfway between its minimum and maximum settings. That’s ideal for controlling lights or a fan, but not for audio controls. Volume controls have to cater to the human ear, which isn’t linear. Instead, logarithmic pots increase their resistance on a curve. At the halfway point volume will still be moderate, but it will increase sharply as you keep turning up the volume. This corresponds to how the human ear hears.

-Traktor replacement parts are available through Repair DJ Gear (RDJG).
-RDG offers upgraded faders for all Traktor controllers.
Are My Faders Faulty?
Traktor faders become faulty over time and need to be replaced, like a turntable stylus. Although a stylus lasts much longer than electromechanical hardware, it is a wearable part that needs to be replaced with lots of usage. This upgrade option is available for the Traktor s2 and Traktor S4 including all Native Instrument controllers.
