Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol Z1 DJ Mixing Interface

You don't need a huge DJ controller to mix like a pro. The Traktor Kontrol Z1 interface gives you hands-on control of your Traktor software over USB.

The Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol Z1 DJ Mixing Interface offers everything the modern digital DJ needs to start mixing music from a laptop, tablet, or smartphone. It's a club-ready TRAKTOR interface and two-deck mixer controller that connects directly via USB to a Mac or PC laptop, or even tablets and smartphones running iOS 7 or later. Just select a track from your digital library and hit play. The Z1 offers a complete EQ section with 3-band EQ, filter, and gain controls for each channel so you can fine tune playback just how you like it. There's also a cue section for previewing your next track and a complete fader section for when you're ready to crossfade into the next track.

Traktor Integration

The benefits of integration with Native Instruments' powerful Traktor software doesn't stop with the Traktor software -- that's only the beginning. Think of the Z1 as but one module of the Traktor product family. When you're ready to add some serious firepower to your arsenal, you can expand your DJ setup with other tools like the Traktor Kontrol F1 which allows hardware access to Traktor's powerful sampler and Remix Decks. Or add a Traktor Kontrol X1 to gain hardware access to Traktor's powerful loop and effects sections.

The mobility of this piece is perfect. My wife and daughter went to the Philippines for some kind of church commitment. The place where they went was hard to find DJ services, I wish I could bring my DJ equipment. But, unfortunately I couldn't go with them. I told my wife to bring the Traktor Control Z1, and my iPad Air loaded with music, and with Traktor Pro2 installed, and all necessary cables. I showed her how to use it. When they got there, she showed one of her cousins how use it, rented a couple of loud speakers, the party was a blast with amazing sound system. I am a big Traktor fun, I have Traktor S4, X1 MK2, and F1 with 2 Bose L1 1S and a pair of Bose B2 Bass module on my mobile set up. I use my Traktor Z1 for small gathering. Love them. Zounds make everything possible to aquire these high end DJ equipments with their easy and the best installment plan, and of course with their free super fast shipping.
