Designed for Traktor Pro with STEMS
The latest version of Traktor Pro Software is STEMS ready. A Stem file is an open, multi-channel audio file that contains a track split into four musical elements – bass, drums, vocals, and melody for example. With each element available independently, you can mix in ways that just weren’t possible until now. With Stems fully supported by the included flagship TRAKTOR software, each of these TRAKTOR controllers are pre-mapped and designed for playing with Stems right out of the box. You can get mixing with Stems right away with a 1.5 GB package of free Stems tracks. Derived from selected MASCHINE expansions, these 65 Stems tracks cover a wide range of tempos and genres ranging from techno, house, and funk, to trap, drum and bass, dubstep and more.

Comments about Native Instruments TRAKTOR KONTROL Z1:
The strongest feature of this product is the sound interface that let's you play music through your iOS Apple iphone, Ipad and ipad mini using the Traktor DJ . You can use the EQ knobs and Hi and Lo filter knobs to mix and fade. It also has 6 FX effects but you can only use one at a time. This is not a full DJ controller like the S2 or S4. I use it mostly with my Mac book using the Traktor 2 Pro software which comes with about 20 + Effects and allows me to use 3 Fx at a time. I would have given the Z1 five stars, but I took off a star because it didn't come with the free LE Traktor version as described on the box. It instructs you to go to the Native Instruments website to download it, only to find you have to purchase the Traktor Pro2. Still I feel this product is an excellent product and I recommend it.
