Native Instruments has announced Traktor Kontrol Z1, a professional mixer and audio interface that connects to both the Traktor DJ App for iPad and iPhone, and Traktor Pro 2.

When combined with the Traktor DJ App, the Z1 adds headphone cue, and dedicated faders, filter and effects controls, and 3-band EQ for each channel. The integrated audio interface boosts audio output to club-ready levels. It also offers Traktor Pro 2 DJs a portable mixing interface.

Traktor Kontrol Z1 connects to iPad, iPad mini, iPhone or iPod touch with an included 30-pin connector. Using the Z1 with a fourth gen iPad, iPad mini, iPhone 5 or fifth gen iPod touch requires an Apple Lightning to 30-pin Adapter, which must be purchased separately from Apple.

Traktor Kontrol Z1 is available at retailers and at the NI Online Shop for US$199; a $50 e-voucher will also be sent to users upon registration of the included Traktor LE software.

The Traktor DJ App for iPad is available for $19.99 from the Apple App Store. The Traktor DJ App for the iPhone and iPod touch is available for $4.99 from the App Store. For more info go to .
