Taktor 2.5 and Kontrol F1 is revieled

The last couple of weeks I've been itching to see the new 2.5 version of Traktor and to see the entire Kontrol F1 revieled and yesterday NI lifted the vail.

The new controller is tailor made for the 2.5 remix section which replace the existing loop decks on C & D. Which in fact is a 4 banks x 16 samples clip launcher. It's got  a 4x4 pad which is RGB back lit. You can color code different types of samples and get a very quick overview of what your launcing without looking at the screen. This is probably the best sample launcing tool around.
Allready ordered one. :)

The new software ships 30.May and is free for Traktor Pro 2, S4 and S2 users!
Controller is available at the same time at $279 / 249 Euro.

It looks like they've created entire bank files so you are able to store presets for each deck. This makes loading alot easier...
