Traktor Kontrol F1 Tutorial Videos

The Traktor Kontrol F1 has been making huge waves in the DJ performance world. We recently released our full HD-Video review of the new Traktor 2.5 software and the F1 controller which stated that there would be a rather steep learning curve before most "normal" playback style DJ's could seriously get into the remix decks. Native Instruments has heard everyone's remarks and has responded with a series of Traktor Kontrol F1 tutorial videos to help make the remix decks more accessible.

Traktor Kontrol X1 MK2 Leaked?

Last week, (only a day after the Traktor Z1 was announced) the popular DJ Equipment website PSSL accidentally posted a new product by Native Instruments which appears to be the Traktor Kontrol X1 MK2. The original Traktor Kontrol X1 came out a few years ago and is commonly used by Traktor DJ's as a playback companion controller with DVS setups or other mixing consoles. The updated X1 has most of the same functions as the original with a few new additions including RGB backlit buttons for Remix Deck control, Flux Mode buttons, a Touch Sensitive Strip for beatmatching/nudging and much more.
