Native Instruments releases Traktor powered controller, X1 MK3

A compact, modular update on Traktor's well-loved X1 MK1 and MK2 models


Native Instruments has released a compact new Traktor-powered controller called the X1 MK3.

An update to the well-loved X1 MK1 and MK2 models, the X1 MK3 offers new features including five OLED displays that show things like track progress, loop size, and track name, a new “Mixer Mode," customisable button colour-coding, and more.

Traktor describe the X1 MK3 as "a compact, modular controller for modern DJs who want exceptional portability, powerful effects control, and intuitive operation, regardless of experience level".

The X1 MK3 comes loaded with the latest version of Native Instrument's flagship DJ software, Traktor Pro 3. The Traktor X1 MK3 will be available from 20th September and is priced at £259/€299. Pre-order one and find out more here.

Last year, Native Instruments celebrated 20 years of Traktor with a new limited-edition timecode vinyl series.

Native Instruments marked its 25th birthday in 2021 with a release of limited edition hardware controllers as well as a new free plugin called TWENTY FIVE.
