EQ and Filter Section
With a 3-band EQ, dedicated gain controls, and chunky filter knobs for each of its two channels, the top section of Traktor Kontrol Z1 gives you full tactile control over your DJ sets. When using Traktor DJ, pressing and holding the Mode button independently toggles decks between filter (button turns blue) and one-knob FX control (button turns orange). When using Traktor Pro 2, the Mode button toggles between low- and high-resonance filters.
Use the A and B buttons to select which channel you want to cue. The Cue Mix knob adjusts the ratio between cue signal and master output in your headphones. Cue Volume adjusts headphone cue volume.
With smooth line faders for both decks as well as a crossfader, NI Traktor Kontrol Z1’s fader section lets you mix with effortless style. The easy-to-read level meters give you instant visual feedback when rocking the club.
