Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol F1 DJ MIDI Controller
The world's favourite compact DJ Controller - Traktor Kontrol F1 from Native Instruments rocks. The definitive and only hardware for controlling TRAKTOR's powerful Remix Decks, with 16 stylish, multi-colored pads to fire loops and one-shot samples.
TRAKTOR KONTROL F1 is the definitive hardware for controlling the powerful Remix Decks™ in TRAKTOR PRO 2.5. 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 - the KONTROL F1 includes around 2 GB of premium grade sound, pre-loaded as 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.
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 2.5 software. And your drum loops, bass lines, percussion, vocals and lead sounds are ready for dropping into your performance.
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.
Get started in seconds - just load up the included sound collection and dive into a new level of interaction with your music. The hardware and TRAKTOR PRO 2.5 software respond as one. Ultra-tight integration is complemented by advanced visual feedback - assign a sample a particular color on the hardware, and see the software instantly follow suit.
TRAKTOR KONTROL F1's slim profile fits anywhere. Slot it between your mixer and decks or expand your controller set-up with multiple F1s - its intuitive feel and striking visual presence is matched only by its addictively fun playability.
Ready to Remix also means you get around 2 GB of premium-grade loops and one-shot samples in the F1 package. This sound collection provides more than ten complete Remix Sets, packed with inspiring, studio-quality material for enhancing your sets, jamming and live remixing.
The sonic spectrum includes beats, basses, leads, and more, spanning ten musical genres, including House, Techno, Dubstep, Hip Hop, Tech House and Drum'n'Bass.
