TRAKTOR KONTROL F1 Is Now Available


Native Instruments has announced that TRAKTOR KONTROL F1 is now available in stores worldwide and at the NI Online Shop. The latest controller from the team behind TRAKTOR KONTROL S4, KONTROL S2 and KONTROL X1 is a pad-based, USB-powered hardware controller built to control the advanced Remix Deck technology in the included TRAKTOR PRO 2.5 software. NI tells us that, designed specifically for DJing, the KONTROL F1 offers a DJ-centric workflow for launching audio clips, loops or samples in an intuitive way using 16 multi-colored LED pads. They say that users can switch between up to 64 tracks, loops and one-shot samples on each deck, utilizing an ergonomic mixer section with four volume faders and dedicated filter knobs for advanced control over each sample.
TRAKTOR KONTROL F1 includes the full version of the recently released TRAKTOR PRO 2.5 software, provided as a download to all registered users. TRAKTOR PRO 2.5 is also available as a free update to all users of the TRAKTOR 2 generation. The hardware controller was designed to control the Remix Decks and provides full and tactile control over the new feature, benefiting from seamless bi-directional software-hardware integration and offering full visual feedback through the multi-colored LED pads. DJs can control up to four Remix Decks at once and save their work as a Remix Set with its respective beat grids, BPM and key information. To provide DJs with F1-ready audio content, Native Instruments is giving away more than 20 Remix Sets for free to all TRAKTOR PRO 2.5 users – including Sets prepared by renowned artists such as Pan-Pot, Stewart Walker, and Marc Houle, plus a selection of genre-based Remix Sets and a tutorial pack.
Pricing and Availability:
TRAKTOR KONTROL F1 is available now for the suggested retail price of $279 / 249 EUR at authorized retailers and at the NI Online Shop. It ships with a full version of TRAKTOR PRO 2.5, available via download on registration. All owners of TRAKTOR PRO 2, TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO 2, TRAKTOR KONTROL S2 and TRAKTOR KONTROL S4 can update to TRAKTOR PRO 2.5 for free. More information:
