Native Instruments has announced the updated Traktor Kontrol X1, a new version of the compact decks and effects controller.
With the same size and product design as the original controller, the Traktor Kontrol X1’s new features include touch-sensitive Browse and Loop encoders, 7-segment displays and LEDs for visual feedback, and a multi-purpose touch strip for added tactile control. When combined with Traktor Pro, Kontrol X1 MK2 delivers plug-and-play physical control over two track decks and two freely assignable Traktor FX units — with or without the use of turntables or CDJs.
Traktor Kontrol X1 MK2 is available at retailers worldwide and at the NI Online Shop for US$229. All X1 customers receive a personal $50 e-voucher delivered by email upon registration of the X1 hardware. For more info go to http://tinyurl.com/qfcrxez .
