Comments from customers who bought this item:
There are four volume faders and four dedicated filter knobs to provide full sonic access to the Remix Deck slots. You can route individual slots through Traktor's FX units for extra flavour, scratch your live production via Native Scratch timecode control and mix and fade into a 'traditional' track on another deck.
The Kontrol F1 is designed to work in harmony with the Traktor Pro 2 software. Assigning a sample a particular colour on the hardware causes the software to instantly follow suit, making it easy to keep track of. The F1's slim profile makes it easy to fit into your setup, and you can even expand with multiple F1s for extra control.

Each track within the stem file can be controlled in the same way as a standard track, with it's own FX and volume faders. A wide range of artists and labels are already on board with Stems with a view to release a range of tracks in stems format, this provides DJs and producers with a whole new tool for creating tracks. Native Instruments has also developed a free Stem Creator Tool which allows you to export your tracks in Stem format divided into 4 musical elements, ideal for layering or to create different arrangements of your track.A beta version of the new Stems Creator Tool can now be downloaded from here.
