Traktor Kontrol F1
The Traktor Kontrol F1 is the new light up button pushing controller from Native Instruments for controlling the new Remix Decks introduced in Traktor Pro 2 version 2.5.

Traktor has introduced the new Traktor 2.5 version of their powerful DJ software that keeps getting more and more powerful with each year. Where just last year Traktor introduced the sample decks, Native Instruments has taken this one step further with the new Remix Decks adding functionality that is similar to the Ableton-Serato Bridge.
The Remix Decks allow you to have all of your loops and samples stored into one deck, you can actually switch between up to 64 tracks and then be able to save all of these loops and samples into one file that you can quickly load into a deck in Traktor.
For performing and working quickly with the Remix Decks Traktor has built the perfect controller, the Traktor Kontrol F1. The Traktor F1 features 16 multi-colored pads to fire off one-shot sample and loops.
In fact, the F1 is so ready to remix that it even comes with 1.4 GB of premium grade loops and one-shot samples. So you’ll have an instant library of sounds and your immediate disposal.

Long live the REMIX!
Both the Pioneer RMX-1000 and the Traktor F1 are super-cool new tools for remixing on the fly but which one is for you?
Actually they’re quite different tools. The Traktor F1 is more for adding and manipulating a seemingly unending plethora of sounds while I see the RMX-1000 as a very tactile performance FX unit.
If you’re already a Traktor DJ, the F1 is obviously a welcome addition for you. If you’re considering getting started with Traktor this could be another great reason—there’s just so much power and potential and so many possibilities to create incredible DJ performances with Traktor.
For DJs that are used to playing on Pioneer gear, the RMX-1000 Remix Station is like a brand new toy to add to their arsenal and I think we’ll see it become a standard installation in any club of caliber.
For DJs that are playing out at a mixture of clubs, bars or parties, the Pioneer RMX-1000 could be an excellent addition to their kit to really show off their skills and make the most of performances by developing unique sounds and unique track interpretations with remixes on the fly that will make the dance floor move and groove.
