Einleitung

The Kontrol S2 by Native Instruments is an intermediate level DJ controller for live performing by DJs and music producers. It was released in 2011 as a step down from the Kontrol S4, to act as a gateway for beginner and intermediate DJs to practice their craft. The S2 features a 2 channel mixer with 2 decks, complete with 9 effect knobs, 5 browsing knobs, 9 equalizer knobs, 2 channel faders, 1 cross fader, and 2 tempo faders.

This fix would be required if a jog wheel needed to be replaced or a disassembly of a Kontrol S2 was required for a different repair. While there are no hazards, it is important to treat the device with care when handling or repairing the device. This guide aims to allow normal users to perform a repair themselves instead of sending the unit to a repair specialist or the manufacturer.

The replacement part should be a "Replacement Jog Wheel for NI Kontrol S2 MK1".

  1. To start the disassembly, grab the channel fader slider and pull up. It will separate from the fader slide with ease. Repeat previous instruction for the 5 other faders. Perform in this order: other channel fader, cross fader (the bottom fader in the middle), and the tempo faders (2 of them) on the left and right sides of the instrument. Be firm, yet gentle when pulling up on the sliders.
