This spring, Native Instruments gave controllerists, remix producers, and old-school DJs a great new way to perform. In many ways, the combination of the Traktor Kontrol F1 remix controller with Traktor Pro 2.5’s new Remix Decks is exactly what cutting-edge digital DJs everywhere have been waiting for. With up to 64 loops and one-shot samples at your fingertips, plus the flexible tools you need to manipulate them in real time, Traktor Pro 2.5 and the Traktor Kontrol F1 controller will revolutionize the way you DJ.
To appreciate the power of the Traktor Kontrol F1’s pad-based control surface, first you have to understand Traktor’s Remix Decks. New to Traktor Pro 2.5 (included with the Traktor Kontrol F1 or available separately), Remix Decks expand on the concept Native Instruments introduced with their Sample Decks, except that instead of four loops and samples, Remix Decks give you 64. But that’s not all. Remix Decks also let you key lock, add effects, and manipulate your samples in other creative ways.
That’s where the Traktor Kontrol F1 hardware controller comes in. Loaded with RGB-backlit trigger pads as well as dedicated filter, level, and navigation sections, the Traktor Kontrol F1 gives you total hands-on control over all aspects of your Remix Decks. In fact, the Traktor Kontrol F1 is so intuitively laid out, you’ll be tossing out one-shots and spinning loops in no time, even if you’ve never juggled samples before!
Native Instruments’ Traktor Kontrol F1 and Traktor Pro 2.5 work with or without time-code vinyl, making them a perfect fit for any kind of traditional DJ setup. You can even pick up a couple of Traktor Kontrol F1s and run your entire set from loops and samples. The possibilities are endless, but no matter how you use yours, we’re sure you’ll have a blast DJing with your Traktor Kontrol F1!
