Essential Control FeaturesFull-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 SwiperSwipe 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 TouchAdvanced 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 MixesYou'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.
