The definitive and only hardware for controlling TRAKTOR's powerful Remix Decks, with 16 stylish, multi-colored pads to fire loops and one-shot samples and the full version of the flagship software TRAKTOR PRO 2.

The TRAKTOR KONTROL F1 hardware is optimized to provide dedicated hands-on control of an entire Remix Deck with access to the 64 loops and samples which can be loaded, arranged and mixed via the hardware.

The pads in the bottom third of the controller trigger 16 loops or samples. You can load up to 64 audio clips into a Remix Deck use the rotary encoder to page between groups of 16. Communication with the software works seamlessly both ways change the color of a pad via the hardware and the software will follow suit instantly and vice versa so you can always see exactly what's going on.

The four high-resolution faders and four knobs control the dry / wet and first parameter of both FX units, as well as their corresponding filter controls. Use your faders to bring TRAKTOR's first two effects in with precision.

The encoder lets you browse and scroll with ease through your track collection. These buttons trigger all other essential software functions and hardware modes such as Sync, Quantize, Snap, Keylock on/off, as well as setting the various pad-controlled modes Use the various Modes to delve deeper into the F1's functionality.

This thing is amazing for anyone who likes to do remixes and mashups. The build quality is top notch and the LED lights look amazing in the dark. My only complaint is that you cant use two sample decks at once, you have to shift toggle to the next deck. If you have the extra cash buy two. Pair this up with a Traktor S4 or S2 and you will be mixing like your name is Betty Crocker in no time!
