DJ Shiftee | Greg Nice | TRAKTOR KONTROL F1
Dolphin Music on Apr 13, 2012
“The definitive and only hardware for controlling TRAKTOR’s powerful Remix Decks, with 16 stylish, multi-colored pads to fire loops and one-shot samples and the full version of the flagship software TRAKTOR PRO 2.5.”
TRAKTOR KONTROL F1 from Native Instruments is one of the most highly anticipated products to become available this year. TRAKTOR F1 comes with 4GB of premium grade sound, not to mention that it spans ten music genres… all pleasing! From house and dubstep to hip hop and drum N bass the TRAKTOR F1 gives you just what you need for both jamming and live mixing.
Import your own samples, capture loops or live sounds and gain full sonic control over the remix desk slots with the F1’s four volume faders and four dedicated filter knobs.
DJ Shiftee speaks to DJ TechTools about the F1
As soon as he heard about the F1 he could immediately see how he would be able to integrate it into his music. DJ Shiftee and Greg Nice take advantage of the F1’s power in the above video clip, using not one F1 but two! Why you ask… well Shiftee admits that you can control four decks with just a single F1, but for the routine in this video “I need the two for the rapid fire triggering on both sides.”
Shiftee claims that he “could not have done this routine using anything but the F1.”
SHiftee’s Favourite Features of the TRAKTOR F1:
The F1 isn’t Shiftee’s only Native favourite; he tells DJ TechTools that he’s pretty fond of the Maschine too. The DJ likes the F1 for controlling the new remix decks in TRAKTOR 2.5 and Maschine for controlling the rest of the program.
