With your signature sound at your fingertips, it’s time to blur the line between DJing and live performance.
With two crystal clear high resolution deck displays that are fully capable of showing you the track information you need in real time, thanks to the touch-sensitive controls which will bring up the relative information on them as you manipulate them. This means you can now browse for the next track, monitor effects, see the STEMS tracks play as four stacked waveforms, and much more all in vivid colour. With just a tap of one of the touch sensitive a knob Traktor respond on the displays offering up information via smart views and pop-up panels showing the filters, and effects values allowing you to keep focused on the mix by keeping you in complete control without ever having to look up at the laptop.
TRAKTOR KONTROL F1’s slim profile fits anywhere. Slot it between your mixer and decks or expand your controller set-up with multiple F1s - its intuitive feel and striking visual presence is matched only by its addictively fun playability.
Ready to Remix also means you get around 2 GB of premium-grade loops and one-shot samples in the F1 package. This sound collection provides more than ten complete Remix Sets, packed with inspiring, studio-quality material for enhancing your sets, jamming and live remixing.
The sonic spectrum includes beats, basses, leads, and more, spanning ten musical genres, including House, Techno, Dubstep, Hip Hop, Tech House and Drum 'n' Bass.
Lastly thanks to Native Instruments latest innovation, the "STEMS" format now allows you to receive specially formatted tracks from a number of MP3 download stores that are capable of being split up into 4 parts of different musical elements whilst mixing.
