Native Instruments has released Traktor Kontrol Z1, which it says is the world’s smallest professional mixer and audio interface for both Traktor DJ for iPhone and iPad, 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. Traktor Kontrol Z1 also offers Traktor Pro 2 DJs a mobile mixing interface.
The Traktor Kontrol Z1 comes with software and license for Traktor LE 2 and connects to iPad and iPhone with an included 30-pin connector. Using the Z1 with iPad 4 and iPhone 5 or later requires a Lightning adapter sold separately.
Traktor Kontrol Z1 is available at retailers worldwide and at the NI Online Shop for US$199. For more info go to http://tinyurl.com/pzb3779 .
