The Xone:K1 would make an ideal companion for any DVS user who are using timecode decks, but need an additional amount of control over the software functions. There are mappings already available for Traktor Pro including Remix Decks as well as mappings for other popular DJ software like Mixvibes and Ableton. The Xone:K1 also has an X-Link RJ-45 connection along side the USB port to connect other X-Link mixers and/or controllers so that they share a single USB port for connectivity. The Xone:K1 will cost around $200 when its released this month. We'll be sure to give you an insider look at the Xone:K1 at the Atlantic City DJ Expo Next week, so STAY TUNED!
