Traktor is softwre for DJs that allows them to control multiple hardware DJ decks, do remixes, loops, etc. Se our post Native Instruments Traktor Pro 2.5 and Kontrol F1 For DJs for more information on the whole Traktor software and hardware system. I mentioned hardware as part of the system. That has been, usually, the Traktor Kontrol F1, which allows you to control Traktor Pro with faders, knobs and pads.
Well, Native Instruments has just unveiled the Traktor Kontrol Z1, which is a hardware controller that not only works with the Traktor software on a laptop, but also with Native Instrument’s iOS DJ app called Traktor DJ. You connect the Z1 to your iPad, iPhone, or iPad Touch via the 30-pin connector (so it sounds like you’d need a Lightning Connector adapter if you have one of the newest devices).
The Z1 is available for pre-order for $199. Click Here to reserve yours.
