      Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol F1 DJ Controller (H81647)
Availability:  


Seamless, dedicated hardware control of the world’s first ever remix decks in TRAKTOR PRO 2.5.

Native Instruments is by far one of the top industry leaders in digital DJ technology, and they continue on the tradition with the TRAKTOR KONTROL F1, 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. Designed to work seamlessly with the flagship TRAKTOR PRO 2.5 software, you can get your hands on every aspect of the one of the top-selling digital DJing software platforms available.

TRAKTOR KONTROL F1 can easily be integrated into any TRAKTOR-based DJ setup, designed to work seamlessly with the TRAKTOR KONTROL X1 controller and the S2 and S4 all-in-one systems, as well as DJs using timecode control, the F1 will ideally complement any DJ setup.

HARDWARE

Kontrol the world’s first remix decks
TRAKTOR KONTROL F1 is the definitive hardware for controlling the powerful Remix Decks in TRAKTOR PRO 2.5 – the flagship DJ software included with the F1. 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.

Best of both worlds
The TRAKTOR KONTROL F1 workflow is rooted in DJ culture. Remix Sets, made up of your individual loops and sounds, and load them just like regular tracks in the super-powerful TRAKTOR PRO 2.5 software. Your drum loops, bass lines, percussion, vocals and lead sounds are ready for dropping into your performance wherever and whenever your heart desires.

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.

Instant remix fun
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.

Superior sounds on board
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.

Optimized to perform
The pads in the bottom third of the controller will trigger 16 loops or samples of your choice. You can load up to 64 audio clips into a Remix Deck – use the rotary encoder to page between groups of 16. Communication with the software works seamlessly both ways – change the color of a pad via the hardware and the software will follow suit instantly and vice versa – so you can always see exactly what's going on.

Track Deck Overlay
Inside the TRAKTOR KONTROL F1 box you will find a Track Deck Overlay. This allows you to access hot-cues, loops, beat jumps and FX which aren’t available on your turntable. While the TRAKTOR KONTROL X1 controller was designed for most of those tasks in mind, scratch users in particular might find the pad + fader layout of the TRAKTOR KONTROL F1 more appealing. While the F1 is the ultimate Remix Deck controller, it can also be a perfect addition to any turntablist setup even if Remix Decks are not your main focus.

The overlay fits neatly on the F1 hardware and allows you access all eight hot-cues, and provides control over dry/wet and the central FX parameter (FX unit in Chained Mode). Other use cases are Loop and Move mode, all with full color feedback. You can even utilize all additional deck controls like Sync, Master and Keylock with just a push of a button.

SOFTWARE
TRAKTOR KONTROL F1 includes the full, flagship TRAKTOR PRO 2.5 software

The software pro DJ’s trust
TRAKTOR PRO software is world-renowned by top DJs of all genres for its rock-solid four-deck operation, and its straightforward usability - it gets you mixing straight out the box. Now the latest TRAKTOR PRO 2.5 version seamlessly merges the world of DJing and live performance via the innovative Remix Decks. Building on the feature set of the previous version - TRAKTOR PRO 2.5 pushes the boundaries of creativity yet again.

Innovative remix decks
Remix Decks allow for spectacular live remixing and improvisation. Switch any (or all) regular track decks in TRAKTOR to a Remix Deck, and you have access to a powerful loop suite made up of 64 slots- build and save your own Remix Set and add to it later.

Each cell can hold a loop or one-shot sample, which you can load from the included TRAKTOR content, import from your hard drive, or capture live from your DJ set. If you’re also a producer, break down your tracks and arrange loops and samples by groups (drums, bass, leads etc) - jam your productions in a spontaneous and flexible DJ-centric way. Seamlessly mix out of your remix session and into a regular track deck at any time. Blur the line between live performance and DJing.

Remix sets
It’s simple to build up a unique library of loops sampled from your DJ sets for your own trademark sound. A Remix Set is the combination of 64 loops and one-shot samples and their respective beat grids and BPMs, which can be stored and loaded just like a regular track from TRAKTOR’s browser.

Super-convenient to load, save and update, it’s also simple to transfer sets from computer to computer. A Remix Set only takes up one row in the TRAKTOR browser. Because a Remix Deck behaves like any track deck, you can control the entire Remix Deck via Native Scratch timecode control with vinyl or CDs, or scratch using the S2/S4 Jog Wheels. Each Remix Deck has its own transport, sync and tempo master controls.

Improved BPM detection
With TRAKTOR PRO 2.5 it’s easier than ever to get started nailing mixes - thanks to the new tempo detection technology. Load a track and TRAKTOR will automatically find the exact song tempo in beats per minute (BPM) - the foundation of the sync function. TRAKTOR will also (if you choose) set a beat-grid - a virtual frame of markers on each beat for locked-down mixes. Detection of BPM for variable BPM tracks (soul, disco etc) is improved, while Tempo-Tap is updated to deliver even easier realignment of tracks drifting from their grids over time.

More control
Expand your sonic horizons. Try feeding individual remix slots through TRAKTOR’s effects units, or play samples back in reverse. TRAKTOR PRO 2.5 offers unlimited possibilities.

Even as you delve deep into tweaking and remixing, it’s easy to stay firmly in control of the big picture. When switching between multiple drum loops, punch-in new grooves anywhere in time without losing the musical flow - flip the beat on the snare’s ‘2’ position for a smoother flow.

Color your sets
To fully harness the Remix Decks, TRAKTOR KONTROL F1 is the ultimate controller. Designed in tandem with the Remix Deck concept, the stylish multi-color pads and ergonomic faders make performing with TRAKTOR PRO 2.5 easy and incredibly addictive.

Any sound or loop can be assigned one of 16 colors, either in the software or via the controller – super-tight integration means the other instantly follows suit. With full visual feedback keeping you in control of your performance, there’s no need to keep checking your computer screen – leaving you free to focus on the crowd.

* The free update to TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO 2 with Remix Decks will be available via the NI Service Center on the release day of TRAKTOR PRO 2.5, scheduled for May 30th, 2012.

  • A performers must!

    As reviewed by Edward Valencia on 7/3/2012

    Amazing Product! I couldn't imagine my sets without this thing! Launce loops, Samples, Air horns etc! You won't regret buying this. Price is a little steep but I guess it comes with a full version of traktor. Kinda pointless if you already have a copy..
