Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol F1 DJ Remix Controller Module
TRAKTOR KONTROL F1 is the definitive hardware for controlling the powerful Remix Decks in Traktor Pro 2 (not included). Finally, you can launch clips in a perfectly intuitive, DJ-centric way - control Remix Decks just like regular track decks, switching between up to 64 tracks, loops and one-shot samples on each deck. With your signature sound at your fingertips, it's time to blur the line between DJing and live performance.
Get started in seconds with over 1.4 GB of premium grade sounds available for download as free Remix Sets. Or you can import your own samples, and even capture loops and sounds live, using the controller's stylish multi-color pads and ergonomic faders. Expand the creative potential of any TRAKTOR set-up - with or without timecode vinyl - and transform your DJ set into a dynamic live performance.
Best of Both Worlds
The TRAKTOR KONTROL F1 workflow is rooted in DJ culture. Remix Sets, made up of your individual loops and sounds, load just like regular tracks in the super-powerful TRAKTOR PRO 2 with Remix Decks. And your drum loops, bass lines, percussion, vocals and lead sounds are ready for dropping into your performance.
The TRAKTOR KONTROL F1 hardware is optimized to provide dedicated hands-on control of an entire Remix Deck with access to the 64 loops and samples which can be loaded, arranged and mixed via the hardware.
Four volume faders and four dedicated filter knobs provide full sonic access to the Remix Deck slots, and to add more flavor, you can route individual slots through TRAKTOR's FX units. Scratch your live production via Native Scratch timecode control and then mix and fade into a 'traditional' track on another deck - fuse classic DJ workflow with the future of DJing.
The pads in the bottom third of the controller trigger 16 loops or samples. You can load up to 64 audio clips into a Remix Deck - use the rotary encoder to page between groups of 16. Communication with the software works seamlessly both ways - change the color of a pad via the hardware and the software will follow suit instantly and vice versa - so you can always see exactly what's going on.
