updated 02:45 pm EST, Tue November 3, 2009

Device complements Traktor Scratch setups

Native Instruments on Tuesday introduced the Traktor Kontrol X1, a new controller for DJ software. The device is based on the Traktor DJ platform and designed to be used with timecode-controlled configurations including hardware mixers and turntables or CD decks. Two X1 units can also be combined for setups with four turntables.

The X1 features a variety of knobs, buttons, and encoders, with colored backlighting for use in low-light conditions. The control layout is pre-mapped for Traktor, although users can reconfigure the assignments to suit personal preference or other software.

The X1 connects via USB and is compatible with both Windows and Mac platforms. The device is expected to be available in February 2010 for $230, while customers can add a carrying bag for $50.
