Berlin, July 03, 2013 – Native Instruments today released TRAKTOR
KONTROL Z1, the world’s smallest professional mixer and audio interface
for both TRAKTOR DJ for iPhone and iPad, and TRAKTOR PRO 2. When
combined with the critically-acclaimed TRAKTOR DJ app, the sleek Z1 adds
headphone cue and dedicated faders, filter and effects controls, and
3-band EQ for each channel. The integrated audio interface boosts audio
output to club-ready levels – an important feature for iOS setups – all
without interfering with TRAKTOR DJ’s acclaimed touch interface. TRAKTOR
KONTROL Z1 also offers established TRAKTOR PRO 2 DJs a highly mobile
mixing interface for situations where compact size and professional
performance features are essential.

Building on the overwhelming success of the TRAKTOR DJ app, TRAKTOR
KONTROL Z1 now offers TRAKTOR DJ users additional physical control that
complements the touchscreen. TRAKTOR KONTROL Z1 also provides a
full-fledged 2-channel mixing interface, software controller, and an
integrated 24-bit soundcard. All faders, filter and effects controls,
and 3-band EQ are automatically mapped and synced to TRAKTOR DJ, giving
DJs hands-on, physical control over their iPad or iPhone setups. The
Z1’s cue section introduces channel headphone monitoring to iOS setups,
allowing for track pre-listening. The 24-bit integrated soundcard
delivers quality club-level sound without the need for an additional
audio interface. When in use, TRAKTOR KONTROL Z1 even keeps the iOS
device charged, assuring DJs hours of stability and performance.

TRAKTOR KONTROL Z1 is also the smallest professional mixer for TRAKTOR
PRO 2 users to date – perfect for intimate after-party gigs or any
situation that requires both compact size and professional performance
features. Plug-and-play connectivity with TRAKTOR means DJs can
immediately start mixing on their Mac or PC system. Combined with
TRAKTOR KONTROL X1 and F1 controllers, TRAKTOR KONTROL Z1 becomes part
of a powerful, professional DJ setup including full control of TRAKTOR’s
Remix Decks and transport functionality.

TRAKTOR KONTROL Z1 comes with software and license for TRAKTOR LE 2 and
connects to iPad and iPhone with an included 30-pin connector. Using the
Z1 with iPad 4 and iPhone 5 or later requires a Lightning adapter sold
separately.

TRAKTOR KONTROL Z1 is available at retailers worldwide and at the NI
Online Shop for $199 / 199 € / 20,800 ¥.

All Z1 customers receive a personal $50 / 50 € e-voucher. This is
delivered by email upon registration of the Z1 hardware.
