The Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol F1 DJ Controller offers hands-on control of Traktor PRO 2 software's Remix Decks.
It is a definitive hardware for controlling the Remix Decks in Traktor PRO 2, the flagship DJ software. It allows you to launch clips in an intuitive, DJ-centric way, control Remix Decks just like regular track decks, switch between up to 64 tracks, loops and one-shot samples on each deck. With your signature sound at your fingertips, the controller lets you blur the line between DJing and live performance.
Get started in seconds with over 1.4GB of high grade sounds that are available for download as free Remix Sets. This sound collection provides more than ten complete Remix Sets, packed with inspiring, studio-quality material for enhancing your sets, jamming, and live remixing. Optionally, you can import your own samples and even capture loops and sounds live, using the controller’s stylish multi-color pads and ergonomic faders. The individual instrument stems (drum loops, bass loops, percussion, leads, etc), patterns and musical phrases are optimized for instant use. Start jamming across musical genres in various combinations. 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 hardware and Traktor PRO 2 with Remix Decks software respond as one. Assign a sample a particular color on the hardware, and see the software instantly follow suit. And with the controller's slim profile, it fits anywhere. Slot it between your mixer and decks, or expand your controller set-up with multiple units.
The controller workflow is rooted in DJ culture. Remix Sets made up of your individual loops and sounds, load just like regular tracks in the powerful Traktor PRO 2 with Remix Decks. And your drum loops, bass lines, percussion, vocals, and lead sounds add to your performance.
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.
Four volume faders and four dedicated filter knobs provide full sonic access to the Remix Deck slots. You can route individual slots through the Traktor’s FX units to add more flavor. Scratch your live production via the Native Scratch timecode control and then mix and fade into a traditional track on another deck, fusing classic DJ workflow with the future of DJing.
