Native Instruments TRAKTOR KONTROL X1 MK2 launched


NI_Traktor_Kontrol_X1_MK2_PerspectiveNative Instruments has announced an updated TRAKTOR KONTROL X1 is now available, offering a compact decks/effects controller and an ideal partner for the TRAKTOR PRO.

The unit offers direct control over playback, browse, cue, sync and loop functionality, and now introduces a button for dedicated Flux mode access.

7-segment displays, LEDs, and quality RGB back-lit buttons that match color with cue point types provide precise visual feedback even in the darkest conditions

The most significant new addition is a multi-purpose touch strip that delivers physical command over track position, pitch bend, and effects. Actions such as nudging, needle dropping, track seeking or setting loop length are now possible through simple finger swiping for customizable tactile control over these parameters in TRAKTOR PRO 2. LED indicators help DJs keep track of the assigned parameter without having to look at the computer screen.

The new TRAKTOR KONTROL X1 MK2 hardware now provides even more dedicated control over TRAKTOR PRO 2. Advanced Browse and Loop encoders respond to touch, providing direct access to different views and functions in TRAKTOR PRO 2.

Here’s a video of house DJ Felix da Housecat working with the TRAKTOR KONTROL X1 MK2:
