Much better than the Mk1 - Reviews Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol X1 mk2

My Christmas 2013, since I used.

I also have a Kontrol S4 and F1.

I used to instantly order my decks C & D in addition to my S4 mode 4 decks and upcoming A & B from the acquisition of a Z1 (2 players + 2 Decks Remix).

Having previously owned the X1 Mk1, I can say that there has been a real evolution with the touch strip.

It can be used in several ways:
- Pitch Bend playing: one side for each deck (A and B, for example)
But it can also "zoom in" pitch bend on the entire band for a single Deck,
- Read + SHIFT: to scratch or to make a feedback,
- Paused: needle search,
- By pressing the center of the strip and one of the FX buttons, you can assign it to the control parameters or Dry / Wet an effect,
- Similarly to the loops by pressing the activation of a loop.
Each time, the LED located just above the band indicates the areas where we should support (Loop 4, 2, 1/2, ... the level or effect parameter).

It also has a "Zoom Browser" touchscreen, placing his finger on the search button in the center (relaxes when the finger is removed).

4 Hots cues instantly accessible and the other 4 by pressing "SHIFT + FLOW" (could be adjusted in TP2 by simply pressing "FLOW" in the options of X1).

Assignable to start TP2 A + B, C + D, A + C, B + D following use.

A small controller very well thought out and very high capacity.

Pleased with my investment, I even take into account a second to change TP2 4 + 4 Decks and FX have a touch control as described above effects and loops.
