Our good friends over at Native Instruments are never ones to quit while they are ahead in the DJ software game. This is a great thing for DJ's all over the world because we get to reap the benefits of this new age of digital DJ competition and all the new digital hardware and software goodness it brings. Introducing the new Traktor Kontrol F1 Pad-Based DJ controller that was built to control the new Remix Decks included in the all new Traktor PRO 2.5 software update along with other new functions and features. The Traktor Kontrol F1 controller has 16 LED touch pads, a four volume fader mixing section, and dedicated filter knobs for DJ's who like to use workflows for launching clips, cues, samples, and loops on the fly. The new Traktor Pro 2.5 update has the new Remix Decks that gives users access to 64 slots that can be used for one-shot samples, loops, cue points, or even track decks. These 64 slots can be called upon in many different ways and the usage can range from simple to super-complex depending on your needs. This new solution starts to bridge the gap between the producer and the DJ in a nice and intuitive way.

You know we will be one of the first to review both the new software update and the new Traktor Kontrol F1 as soon as they are ready for release. The Traktor Kontrol F1 will go on sale on May 30th for $279 while the Traktor Pro 2.5 update will be FREE for current Traktor Pro 2, Traktor Scratch Pro 2, Traktor Kontrol S2 and Traktor Kontrol S4 users.
