Everyone's favorite new controller, the Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol X1, is now certified on Serato! With a designated Serato mapping and overlay included in the package, Traktor Kontrol X1 is the ultimate Serato controller to control looping, hot cues, track browsing and effects as well as the SP-6 Sample Player with ease and style. The download is available on the Native Instruments website and available to all Kontrol X1 users. Check out the promotional video showing what you can do with a Kontrol X1 running on Serato. The DJ and producer team Faust and Shortee use their X1 with custom-made faceplate showcasing some epic scratching and controller-ism on Serato. As you can imagine, this is something that should really light up the faces of all the Serato DJ's out there as it pulls back the DJs' focus from looking at laptop screens to working with the crowd!
[Video] Traktor Kontrol X1 MK2 Released
The new Traktor Kontrol X1 MK2 has now shipped from Native Instruments to a local DJ gear store near you. The new Traktor X1 has most of the same functions as the original X1 including cue points, browse/load controls, effects, and loops, but adds a new touch-strip section in the middle of the unit that can control effects parameters, nudging for beatmatching, and for jumping to a particular section in a song. Our full review is on the way, but check out Felix Da Housecat using the X1 in this new NI demo.
