Native Instruments has released the updated TraktorKontrol X1, a new version of its compact decks and effects controller. 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 TraktorPro, the X1 MK2 delivers plug-and-play physical control over two track decks and two freely assignable TraktorFX units — with or without the use of turntables or CDJs. The TraktorKontrol X1 MK2 is now available in stores 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 .
