This morning, Native Instruments released details of its forthcoming Traktor Kontrol F1 DJ controller and version 2.5 of Traktor Pro.

Native Instruments already has offerings in this area in the form of the Kontrol X1 and Kontrol S4, both of which have been hugely popular.

Let’s get under the hood and find out.
Native Instruments just unveiled a lot of enhancements to their current line of DJ software. Before, we didn’t even know we were just dealing with T1, but it feels good to know that going forward, everything from Traktor Scratch Pro to Traktor Duo will have T2 inside, which features a more Serato-like waveform colorization scheme called TruWave.

Now excuse us, we’ve got a couple of sequel ideas of our own to get cracking on.
