Add the NI F1 to Nearly Any Traktor DJ Setup

The F1's modular design allows you to add it to practically any Traktor setup. So whether you're spinning time-coded vinyl through a scratch simulator, DJing from a plug-and-play controller, or just firing samples into an effects processor, the F1 will easily integrate with your DJ setup.

Performance-Oriented Layout

The F1 features a performance-oriented layout, so it's easy to control your samples on stage. The remix section offers 16 multi-color pads to trigger your samples. You can color-code your samples too, so you'll always remember which sample belongs to which pad. Stop and Mute controls are also provided for each Remix Deck slot, so it's easy to recover if you do fire the wrong sample! The mixer section features filter knobs and volume faders for the four Remix Deck slots, for dynamic control of your sample groups.

4 out of 5 (4 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "traktor f1"
Sound: Sounds Good If you get the kontroller with the new traktor pro included. Feature: Every feature is very useful in its Own way. Ease of Use: Confusing at first. Tales a bit of time figuring out how to use it. Quality: No. Product is made of plastic. So not.durable. especially If you plan on being mobile. I do not recommend. Value: Id say no. Should be 100$ Manufacturer Support: They never contacted me.back. The Wow Factor: Colorful. So very appealing.to the eye. Overall: Got it fast and easy with the payment plan. Thanks zzsound. As for the kontroller itselfits great. Its build quality sucks as it is all plastic. This is my second one. As the first one i had the usb cord input behind the kontroller got messed up some how. Id recommend not moving this from a ser location.in your home. An aluminum chasis and enclosure around the buttons would so be worth an extra 50$. I have it set up with my rmx2 and an x1 mk2 kontroller. All in all you hace countless things you can do on with all three unless your looking to do scratching. Its great for.mixing and marching though.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Traktor F1 is the powerful in the world of dj controllersm"
Overall: The Traktor F1 is will change the way so may people dj. Controllerism - djing is fun and very creative, its not just about pushing buttons, You can use the f1 to fire off 1 shots, loops, phrase or complete songs, it is very responsive and goes hand and hand with Traktor S4 and S2 (I own the S2). Its very easy to learn all the functions, you will be remixing in little to no time even if you are a beginner. I also own Native instruments Maschine and you can sync Traktor 2.5 with Maschine or drag and drop lops and scenes from Maschine right into Traktor 2.5 software. I can see many future possibilities with the F1 and will probably add 1 more to my setup. If you ever wanted to get into doing or controllerism the Traktor F1 is definitely something you should consider.
Style of Music: old school (real) hip hop, Dub step, funk, smooth jazz and r&b, electronic classic rock.
