Vestax is now shipping the new TR-1 Traktor Controller, a USB MIDI controller designed in cooperation with Japanese laptop-based DJ Hiroshi Watanabe.
It features command of Traktor Pro software for control of up to four laptops through two program channels. Key features include soft-push switches and smooth 60mm slide faders for high-precision mixing, with an adjustable Input Fader curve to adapt to any mixing style. A new Shift switch feature allows the user to customize control functions by assigning a second command to a single button.
Standard controls include tempo faders with pitch bend, 3-band EQ with pan on both sides, back and forward cue controls, dual effects loops per side, and more. Connectivity is USB-easy.
The Vestax TR-1 comes bundled with Native Instruments Traktor LE software, and can command 160 parameters, including live signal processing effects, beat matching, loop programming, filter sweeping, and EQ sweetening in real time. Both the TR-1 and Traktor LE software are compatible with both Windows (XP, Vista) and Mac (OS 10.4 or higher) operating systems.
The new Vestax TR-1 DJ Controller is in stores now. For more information, including price and a live demo of the TR-1 at LOOP Tokyo by Hiroshi Watanabe, check out ci.vestax.com/en/products/tr1_01.html.
