Get More Hands-on Control Over Your Traktor DJ Software!

Traktor becomes tactile with the Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol X1 MK2, a portable USB DJ controller offering full integration with your Traktor decks, effects, loops, and all other DJ functions -- with or without turntables or CDJs. An awesome add-on for any Traktor DJ rig, this performance controller takes you away from your computer and closer to your music.

See and hear the X1 in action with this video from Native Instruments:


Essential Control Features

Full-on effects control is at your fingertips -- use the Traktor Kontrol X1's eight intuitively placed knobs and buttons to work with two of the four effect units. You get browse, cue, sync, and loop controls, plus a touch-sensitive browser exactly where your hands want to go. At-a-glance visual feedback is provided by professional RGB back-lit buttons and displays, for instant communication with Traktor Pro or Traktor Scratch software.

Ready to remix? The DJ controller delivers direct access to Traktor's Flux mode, allowing you to juggle cue points and loop effects without missing a beat.

Be a Smart Swiper

Swipe your finger across the X1's multipurpose touch strip to get complete control over track position, pitch bend, and effects. Digital displays and LED indicators provide even more visual feedback so that even in the darkest rooms, you always know what's up with your tracks.

The Traktor Kontrol X1 lets you control one or both decks simultaneously and access important playback functions, such as track seeking or loop length. The touch strip is at your command; it's user adaptable, allowing you to change default settings to match your DJing style.

What's your deck status? Depending on whether your deck is stopped or playing, the touch strip will be assigned to track seeking, needle dropping, pitch bend, or whatever else. Customize your setup in seconds by assigning the touch strip to control any effect parameter.

I Like Your Touch

Advanced Browse and Loop encoders are highly touch sensitive, giving you instant access to Traktor's different views or functions. Just touch the Browse encoder to see the full-sized Browser list. Touching the Loop encoder while holding SHIFT+PLAY lets you see the key of your track, while touching the Loop encoder while holding SYNC lets you see the tempo.

Ergonomic Mixes

You'll like the feel of the X1 DJ controller's smooth buttons and knobs, all of which are pre-mapped so you can set up and go. The optional Traktor Kontrol Stand puts the X1 controller at standard mixer height, so that you won't have to hunch over any more than you need to during a mix.

Features:

- Compact, powerful USB DJ controller for use with Traktor software (not included)
- Full integration with Traktor decks, effects, and loops for the ultimate Traktor experience
- Get hands-on control of 2 track decks and 2 freely assignable Traktor FX units

Product Description

Native Instruments' TRAKTOR KONTROL X1 is the compact performance controller designed for perfect TRAKTOR integration. Already the standard for performance DJ controllers, the mighty TRAKTOR KONTROL X1 delivers as much power as portability when controlling TRAKTOR decks and effects. Whether DJing all-digital, or using timecode control, the X1 delivers added instant control over all essential DJ functions on 2 track decks for seamless command of TRAKTOR software and a design that feels instantly familiar.

A tactile touch strip brings you closer to the music without ever having to reach for your turntable or CDJ -- perfect for quick, precise nudging, track seeking, or loops and effects control.

Power Player

TRAKTOR KONTROL X1's eight knobs and buttons control up to three effects on two of the four effect units. An ultra-intuitive layout puts browse, cue, sync, and loop controls right where you need them while touch-sensitive browser and loop controls provide smart software navigation. Pro-grade, RGB back-lit buttons and displays give instant visual feedback during your set - direct, fluid communication with TRAKTOR PRO or TRAKTOR SCRATCH.

On the fly remixing has also never been easier as direct access to TRAKTOR's Flux mode now allows you to juggle cue points and loop effects without missing a beat.

Smooth Swiping

Take physical control of your music with or without turntables or CDJs. TRAKTOR KONTROL X1 now includes a multi-purpose touch strip that delivers ultra-precise command over track position, pitch bend, and even FX at the swipe of a finger. Digital displays and LED indicators provide visual feedback so you know where you stand when the night is in full swing.

Control one or both decks simultaneously. From nudging or needle dropping, to quick access playback functions like track seeking or loop length, the touch strip's default settings instantly adapt to match your needs -- your fingers do the rest.

Smart Performer

Boasting reactive performance behaviors, TRAKTOR KONTROL X1 takes care of the details behind the scenes. The advanced Browse and Loop encoders respond to touch and command TRAKTOR to access different views or functions -- just touch the Browse encoder to see the full-sized Browser list. Touching the Loop encoder while holding SHIFT+PLAY lets you see the key of your track. Touching the Loop encoder while holding SYNC lets you see the tempo.

The touch strip also interprets functions based on deck status - when stopped, it's assigned to track seeking or needle dropping. When playing, pitchbend is activated. For your own trademark sound, assign the touch strip to control any effect parameter in seconds.

Everything Under Kontrol

TRAKTOR KONTROL X1 features smooth, ultra-precise buttons and knobs - all pre-mapped for instantaneous setup, keeping you laser-focused on performance. On the road, TRAKTOR KONTROL STAND offers rugged protection and elevates the X1 up to standard mixer height.

Whether you're looking for a effective tool to boost your creativity or a stylish one-stop solution for maximum portability and power, the next-generation X1 ticks all the boxes.

Features:

- Control 2 track decks and 2 freely assignable TRAKTOR FX units
- Plug and play - instant recognition by TRAKTOR with no setup required
- Innovative touch strip delivers even more control over track position, pitchbend, and FX, RGB cue point buttons, 7-segment displays, and LED touch strip indicators for comprehensive visual feedback
- Precision buttons, knobs and touch-sensitive encoders deliver ultimate control

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "A little piece of heaven"
Overall: The X1MK2 is without a doubt a solid upgrade from the original X1MK1. One of the best features is the touch strip! Helps you to nudges and scan through tracks with ease. I don't even touch cdj's anymore. I'm Trance DJ and this just helps so much and i always feel better knowing i have consistency from club to club with this. I pair it with a traktor z2 and it's complete traktor bliss!
