.::. TRAKTOR KONTROL X1

Native Instruments announced its first native Traktor controller called Traktor Kontrol X1. The controller shall be available on February 1, 2010.

Kontrol X1 Package 

Currently there are only marketing information available and no "real world" experiences about using the Kontrol X1. I have seen a X1 unit during Amsterdam Dance Event in October 2009 and I must say that the build quality of the controller is very good. It looks and feels the same as the Maschine controller by Native Instruments.

Whether the X1 suits your needs depends (as with every other controller) on the Traktor features you want to control. We need to wait until the final release to be able to say how good and easy the X1 can be integrated into an existing Traktor setup.
