Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol X1 Review

Native Instruments has been announcing the launch of Traktor Kontrol X1 for several months now and it was even possible to pre-order it on the NI website, if you wanted to be one of the lucky first owners. Was the waiting worth it? Does the Kontrol X1 fulfill our expectations? We'll see... but let's unpack it first! Read more…

    For nearly three years.
    The most direct route its implementation, configuration, ease of use.
    There are no less!
    The value for money is good and yes with the experience I remake this choice without hesitation.

    How long have you use it?
    Few months and I can not do without

    What is the particular feature you like best and least?
    Goodies:
    This is a very good complement to traktor scratch and turntables. We quickly took his bearings and buttons fall quickly under the fingers.
    The unit is robust
    You plug it works!
    It is compatible with other app like live by example and each button is assignable manually

    Cons: honestly it is very hard to find ...
    For as we say that the fact that it is close enough can interfere when placed between the table and a plate, which is quickly forgotten with a small extension (home or storage box)

    Have you tried many other models before buying it?

    Have you tried many other models before buying it?
    So I started with the Behringer BCD2000 (no comment ...), then a Hercules I do not know what (a toy). I have forsaken the controllers and dedicated myself to traktor scratch.
    Then a friend bought the S4 and tickled my neurons. I took the plunge and I do not regret the contrary.
    How would you rate the quality / price?
    Very good

    With experience, you do again this choice?
    Yes biensur try it love it! It is never at fault

    A Must Have!

    I already used it at a friend before he bought. It was pure advantage of being compact and efficient, taking only black spot is a bit lousy. I test the range of Reloop Contour I also like a lot but not worth the integration of the Traktor X1. The ratio Q / P is still a great product for him this bill, plus it's delivered with a license for Traktor.

    How long have you use it?

    Since Christmas 2012


    Have you tried many other models before buying it?

    I used the Hercules RMX

    What is the particular feature you like best and least?

    Plus: Easy integration into a setup, quality buttons.

    The least: Its thickness must buy Tray or support for it is at the height of the mixer.


    How would you rate the quality / price?

    At first a little expensive, but once you use it, you understand why.

    With experience, you do again this choice?

    Of course I do!


    I wanted to integrate a controller to my turntables and my mixer without having cables everywhere exceeded (see the pictures on my page).

    Works with any software as a controller

    Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol X1Published on 02/26/13 at 09:08
    The Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol X1 is a hardware controller that is to be used with Traktor but it can also be used with pretty much any DJ software. A have only used it with two different applications but I prefer to just use it with Traktor. This unit is very small and light, it doesn’t take up much desktop space nor can it be racked. There are no built in effects and it cannot be used as a stand alone mixer. It is simply a controller. It comes with Traktor LE, so you can easily manage and work with all digital music. It is easy to use and set up. I had it up and running within just a few minutes of opening the box. It has never caused any issues when using it with Traktor either…

It is easy to use and set up. I had it up and running within just a few minutes of opening the box. It has never caused any issues when using it with Traktor either. Traktor is not my favorite software to use but it is one of the easiest to work with in my opinion.
    There are back lit LED buttons and encoders on this unit. There are a total of 8 knobs and 8 buttons that will allow you to control up to 3 different effects per deck. I mainly use this unit as a MIDI controller to control many functions in Traktor and FL Studio when I am using it live. Being that this unit is so inexpensive I had no problem purchasing it alone with other units that are similar. I do not use it to work with live as much but I do a lot of work on it at home. When I purchased the Traktor Kontrol X1 it came with Kore Player 2 which is already free anyways and can be downloaded online. It is like a VST plug in that has sounds and presets in it.
    The X1 by Traktor is not the best controller that native Instruments makes but it is very affordable and worth the money spent. It is well made, and all of the buttons and knobs are built well for this price.

    How long have you been using?
    I used 1 year.

    What is so special that you like most and least?
    Most:
    - The price (219 € with the bag provided and Traktor Pro 2!).
    - The opportunities it offers in such a small size.
    - Simplicity.

    Cons:
    - The USB connection on the back seems to not hold too well, but nothing too bad.

    Did you try many other models before buying it?
    No, it was the first such model that I bought.

    How do you rate the quality / price?
    The value for money is unbeatable!

    With experience, you do again this choice? ...
    Without a doubt it is a little killer!

    I use it for 2 years
    No-it is the only controller I had 2 copies

    Pros: super sturdy, easy to handle, the pad is sensitive and spaced just right to not be up the pole keys, adjustable backlight handy

    Value for money, unbeatable aluminum finish neat and compatible with all software configurable mix and especially

    This choice, I believe that this is the best I've done so far, the knobs do not play, what about better, more with the cover Native Instruments go with it is just a good height (this is good in Native)
