Description The first official TRAKTOR controller for use with any DJ software.

TRAKTOR KONTROL X1 gives you instant command of your decks and effect parameters whether you are a DJ using DVS (digital vinyl system) timecode or software. Simply connect the TRAKTOR KONTROL X1 to a computer running TRAKTOR (or other performance software) and take charge. Robust rotary knobs with a heavy-duty feel and backlit buttons provide precise visual and tactile status feedback, letting you delve deep inside TRAKTOR without having to touch your computer.

Everything under Kontrol:

Traktor Kontrol X!'s bi-directional communication with TRAKTOR through Native Instruments' high-resolution protocol gives the controller's hardware a smoother and more precise feel compared to regular MIDI controllers. All buttons and knobs have been pre-mapped for optimum TRAKTOR use but can be re-configured in any way you like. TRAKTOR KONTROL X1 can also be used as a MIDI controller for any software as well as expanded with a second unit to control four decks and four FX units.

With the record flip feature, Traktor Scratch Pro instantly detects that you have flipped your control vinyl to it's other side and will automatically load the next track in the playlist. Mastered and cut at Berlin's renowned studio Dubplates and Mastering, the grooves have exceptional depth for gripping the stylus.

Access all areas:

TRAKTOR KONTROL X1's high-quality, backlit LED buttons and push encoders are clearly arranged into distinct transport, browse, loop, and effects sections. With enough room for convenient control of selecting, cueing, synching, and pitching tracks, you always have the right music on hand. Eight knobs and eight buttons simultaneously control up to three effects on each deck, while the intuitive loop control section together with direct access to eight hotcues per track will have you remixing your music without interrupting the flow.

Included software:

TRAKTOR KONTROL X1 comes with a powerful selection of software to get you mixing and making music straight out of the box. The included software consists of:

TRAKTOR LE: TRAKTOR LE makes it easy to mix your digital music files. This convenient DJ software offers two playback decks, a 2-channel mixer, and more.

KORE 2 PLAYER & KORE Instrument: If you produce your own music, the included KORE 2 PLAYER offers 600 MB of production-ready sounds for use in any sequencer.

Highest-quality components:

TRAKTOR KONTROL X1 stands out with exceptionally high-quality workmanship. With meticulous attention to detail, the knobs and buttons have been designed for maximum accuracy and precision in both look and feel. With its slim, yet super-sturdy construction, the X1 is your companion in any DJing situation. The optional (sold separately) transport bag not only serves to securely transport the unit, but can be turned into a stand that puts X1 at exactly the same height as standard mixers and other DJ hardware.

Intuitive layout:

TRAKTOR KONTROL X1 features a total of 30 buttons, 4 push encoders, and 8 knobs arranged in the following sections:

EFFECTS SECTION: 8 high-resolution potentiometers and 8 buttons make up the effect section of the TRAKTOR KONTROL X1. This section allows control of all the parameters of 2 TRAKTOR effect units simultaneously. In Chained mode, this means simultaneous control over 3 effects per deck. The effects section buttons are programmed to give direct access to 3 of your favorite effect presets.

BROWSE SECTION: One push encoder per deck is dedicated to browsing through play lists and loading tracks. Simply turn the push encoder to find the track you want, and push it to load it into the corresponding deck. Once the track is loaded the same encoders seek through the track, using tempo sync'd beat jumps to remain in time.

LOOP SECTION: This section allows for intuitive control of TRAKTOR's loop function, giving clear visual feedback about the loop status with LEDs. The section offers first-level access to auto loops and manual loops as well as loop editing functions such as loop size and loop position, both coarse and fine.

TRANSPORT SECTION: This section provides direct access to basic playback controls as well as shifted access to 8 secondary functions for each deck. All buttons for industry standard workflows (Play, Sync, Cue, and Cup) are located here. Switch to hotcue mode and you get another 16 buttons for controlling the 8 hot cues or hot loops per track. Plus, the CUP button flashes in time with the deck's BPM as an added visual mix aid.

  1. Good product, now for a better price Review by Gabriel
    Rating

    I bought this a year ago, as all the other native instruments products, this a great! Its plug and play capability makes it very handy for controlling effects and cuepoints with traktor scratch duo (and pro). The downside is that I bought a better controller later, and I haven't being able to use it as much as I wanted to, but know with Traktor Z2 mixer I will so I'm happy I kept it. (Posted on 3/21/13)

  2. Excelent Control Review by Mario
    Rating

    I decided to invest some dollars on my Dj set up, so I bought from Unique Squared the midi controller Native Instruments Kontrol X-1and when the shipment arrived I finally tried it with Traktor Pro software and I was so amazed because of the resolution it has, I am really surprised about that. I also really liked the predefined default mappings, I particularly prefer the C + D sampling.

    What I most liked is the following:

    - Perfectly calibrated knobs
    - Really easy browsing
    - Plug and play

    By far this is the best controller I’ve ever used with Traktor Pro software.

    The excellent quality of the X-1 made me decide to compliment it with the S-2, which I expect to buy from Unique Squared.
