Native Instruments has launched READY.SET.PRO. – a limited-time offer on the TRAKTOR KONTROL X1 decks and effects controller and TRAKTOR KONTROL Z1 – the compact DJ mixing interface. Until August 31, 2014, a full version of the flagship TRAKTOR PRO 2 software comes free with purchase of either controller. Here's what NI has to say...
Praised for its portability and ease of use, TRAKTOR KONTROL X1 enhances any TRAKTOR setup with seamless, intuitive control. DJs get plug-and-play physical control over two track decks and two TRAKTOR FX units. The integrated multi-purpose touch strip offers inspiring tactile control over looping and FX via finger swiping, as well as convenient access to track nudge and needle drops. Adding to TRAKTOR KONTROL X1's playback and effects control, capacitive touch sensitive encoders provide instant visual feedback on TRAKTOR PRO 2's features.
TRAKTOR KONTROL Z1 is the portable all-in-one DJ mixing interface designed for spontaneous DJing with TRAKTOR software. As a 2-channel mixing controller and 24-bit soundcard, the Z1 offers dedicated faders, filter and effects controls, and a 3-band EQ for each channel. All of these hardware features automatically map to TRAKTOR PRO 2 or TRAKTOR DJ software, giving DJs instant hands-on control over their mobile DJ setups.
When used together, each controller provides physical control of essential mixing features not accessible in the other – complementing each other and offering a portable, comprehensive, and modular TRAKTOR PRO 2 setup. The DJ software chosen by countless professionals worldwide, TRAKTOR PRO 2 offers DJs up to four virtual decks, intuitive looping and cueing functionality, and a wide range of over 30 effects. Integrated Remix Decks technology allows instant looping and sampling for on-the-fly remixes.
