This morning, Native Instruments released details of its forthcoming Traktor Kontrol F1 DJ controller and version 2.5 of Traktor Pro. The hardware and software update is designed to entice those of you who might otherwise be lured away by Ableton Live, and it does this by giving you the ability to fire off tracks, loops, or one-shot samples from the hardware’s sixteen touch-sensitive, multi-colored trigger pads. The pads are laid out in a four by four grid, each column of which has its own fader and filter knob.

T2 is not a cyborg, is the new more colorful Traktor

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.

Also new today are the Traktor Audio 6 and 10 interfaces with new analog direct thrus — expect them in April for $ 279 and $ 449, respectively. Now excuse us, we’ve got a couple of sequel ideas of our own to get cracking on.
