The Core Control You Need for Traktor!

Pick up a Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol X1 Mk2 and get a ton of control over Traktor, without sacrificing precious table space. Plug it in and this device instantly maps to Traktor, providing you with comprehensive control over cue points, loops, track positioning, and two complete Traktor FX units. An innovative touch strip gives you fast and easy control over track positioning, as well as pitch and effects parameters. Need more control? No problem! Just add on another Traktor Kontrol X1 for 4-deck operation, or other Native Instruments Traktor Control modules.

Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol X1 Compact DJ Controller at a Glance:
  • Total control over 2 decks and 2 FX units
  • Robust design built for serious pro DJs

Total control over 2 decks and 2 FX units

The updated version of the Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol X1 packs all the essential controls you need to manipulate two decks and two Traktor FX units into one elegantly simple device. A complete set of touch-sensitive browser and loop controls provide you with tons of performance options, and the Traktor Kontrol X1's RGB-backlit cue point trigger buttons let you instantly identify cue points. On top of that, there's an innovative touch strip controller onboard that makes it super easy to scan through tracks, plus it gives you fine control over parameters such as pitch bending and FX.

Robust design built for serious pro DJs

When you're in the middle of a set, the last thing you want to worry about are buttons that slip under your fingers or knobs that fall off in your hand. With its precision buttons, robust knobs, and grip-able touch-sensitive encoders, the Traktor Kontrol X1 takes all the anxiety out of DJing with a lightweight controller. Native Instruments even built the Traktor Kontrol X1's housing out of super-durable aluminum and they sized it to fit right along with the rest of your rig. And with advanced 7-segment displays, RGB LED backlighting, and LED indicators on the multi-purpose touch strip, you can always tell at a glance what's going on in your mix.

Part of your complete Traktor DJ rig

Whether you're a 100% in-the-box DJ or using an advance setup for Traktor Scratch, from the moment you connect your Traktor Kontrol X1 to your Mac or Windows PC, you'll be up and running. It truly is a plug-and-play device. What's more, the Traktor Kontrol X1 plays well with other Traktor gear. You can pair it up with a second X1 controller for a total of four decks worth of control, or expand your system with Traktor Kontrol F1 remix controllers or a Traktor Kontrol Z2 mixer. On top of that, Native Instruments will give you a $50 voucher when you register your Traktor Kontrol X1, so you can start building up your system right away.

Interesting controller

I have been using Traktor for about a year now and with the Kontrol s4 and was looking for a more portable option for some gigs. The modular approach makes a lot of sense to me as I can tailor my equipment portage to the gig requirements. The X1 does exactly what it is supposed to do in a compact package. The workflow is relatively intuitive however very limited. The thing I miss most about a more comprehensive controller is the lack of ability to do manual beatmatching as this is my preferred mixing style. I have only used the factory mapping and have not delved into customizing it myself. The factory settings are pretty good though. The build is attractive and clean, however I can not speak on its durability as I have not even gigged with it yet. Overall I recommend this product and and pleased with the purchase.
