If you are already a Pro DJ Software user then you must go out and get the Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol F1. It is a must have for that software, I have not tried to run this controller in any other software but since it is just a controller it should not be too difficult setting it up in a different DJ software if you choose not to use it with Pro DJ (the software that comes with it).
The controller has no inputs or outputs on it, there are also no onboard effects either. So this unit is useless without software to assign it too. There is also no cross fader on it, which could be a deal breaker depending on what exactly it is that you want. Native Instruments has been coming out with some of the best hardware and software integrated devices with all of the Traktor Kontrols and the Maschines. If you want to stay on top of the technology turn then the Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol F1 is the way to go.
Dj s2m's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" CONTROLLER of the Remix Decks"
I have a Traktor Kontrol S4 and X1 Mk2.
The ideal composition for Remix Decks TP2:
- A filter section and fader for each slot,
- The 16 RGB pads for easy reference samples (+ assignable colors)
- Section for loading remix sets and control of all options (sample type, reverse, sample size, pitch, speed ...).
Easy for basic commands but very complete: everything is controllable from this small interface after a period of adaptation.
F1 can also be used in the manner of a X1 (Native Instrument gives you an Track Deck Overlay for assigning buttons).
To learn more and understand the beast, do not hesitate to watch the video tutorial DJ ENDO (DUBSPOT)
For those who do not use the decks remix, go your way. For others, do not hesitate one second.

officialbob5's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" really nice"
what I like most is the interaction I have with the hardware, everything looks really well thought out
what I like least is the lack of availability afternoon with scratch live.
means for money, I'll buy a second soon may be.
I used two months
Have you tried many other models before buying it?
No, it must be said that this is the first of its kind, I combined it with my S4 and my two turntables
What is the particular feature you like best and least?
Pros: - The filters
- The colors * __ * ^ ^
- The sync button
- Scratcher the samples on vinyl
The -: I think it takes a minimum of 2
The buttons are not so reactive (minimal latency ... but yet I'm on mac)
The remix on deck or spend hours getting his deck remix or you buy on beatport eg
How would you rate the quality / price? With experience, you do again this choice?
value for money a little high it could not put the license and reduce the price
and I do not ferrai this choice because I no longer want to be dependent on my computer
but for DJ Performer is top!

djbabs's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Well, but see very well ..."
See who it is intended for: DJ's "+", remixers, but also more broadly to groups that use live sequences
Concurrent opposite: Ableton Live
Pros: one application to send sequences scratch samples and swing effects on the whole. An extremely well designed interface (normal when running the app also). Thoughtful functions like gain settings of samples with shift + volume where the filters tracks per track. A friendly workflow when the goal is to balance occasional samples or loops to scratch
Cons: expensive and an interface that serves only that, a system that quickly shows its limits in use where the track must be 100% sequentially, there is, to my knowledge at the moment, still quantification by adjustable sample sample (Live what long ago). Result = let's say you want to balance out the one-shot rigged action: either your entire project is QUANTIF hyper short and then you have more net, you start your curls perfectly, or it must tweak your one shot with white for the early start on time, not necessarily practical.
My conclusion: One or two more in F1 for the set? Yes but it's expensive. The same goes for outright sequencing songs live? Feasible but impractical at present. Traktor is great for digital DJ'ing, Ableton is for sequencing. Native will be hard to catch up despite a team that listens to its customers, dynamic. As she need to do? No. Just make sure it offers is already optimal, no fault is already huge at the moment this is not the case. The hardware is there, it is the software that will grow. I would not stay alone in a config hybrid between the two apps currently. It is a little cat that bites its tail as native customers need to develop all that and make the system better, some say he was thinking about these small and missing functions required early to be sure disrupt the market. Half the bet is successful, but I think this opinion will be obsolete fairly quickly, at least I hope so.
NB: not at all agree with the test pads and AF regarding their sensitivity! Must be pressed as a lumberjack for trigger, we take the usual way DJ, but still, the pads of my Launchpad seem more appropriate. Even if the hardware is very good and the app is priority, Native could still progress also on this point: pads and faders "softer" would be a good thing. Meanwhile it deserves to be robust.

HARDCORE77's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Nickel"
3 people did not find this review helpful
a great addition to add a real dimension to his set.
I will also buy me a 2nd to complete the device to play on deck 2 remix.
Easy to handle, intuitive features and directly usable.
Good stuff like the S4.
Infinite possibilities is preparing its samples, either by capture on the fly.
Brief but happiness for playing live.
I can only recommend this little toy DJs wishing to pep and improvisation in their sets.
