Digital DJing with Traktor Kontrol F1
Months back, I posted an article about providing a sneak peek on what the future of DJing will be. For those of you who missed it, do not worry, here’s a link to the post. Back then Native Instruments provide so much hype and was saying that it’s gonna reinvent yet again the way DJs play their music. So for most of us DJs, professional or not, the wait is finally over. In fact, Native Instruments took so long to release the damn thing that the whole DJ scene had almost forgotten about it. Now finally, the Traktor Kontrol F1 is here. A device that will fuse both DJing and Performance Artist together and provide a seamless integration between live mixing and live editing on an entirely digital platform. The folks at NI are kind enough to show us a glimpse on what this machine can do in the hands of a professional, turntablist extraordinaire DJ Shiftee will man the decks tonight and show you folks the next generation DJing. Hit the video to catch the beat, make sure to stay in sync, and remember no songs were used in the entire clip, only loops and samples.
