Native Instruments Audio Kontrol 1
The new AUDIO KONTROL 1 is a high-end audio interface. Offering crystal-clear 192 kHz, 24 bit-quality, it is far more than just a sound card. Freely-assignable buttons and controller knob combined with advanced MIDI and key command functionality grant full control of software applications - setup files for popular programs ensure it's hassle-free.
AUDIO KONTROL 1 offers three buttons and a controller knob on the hardware's top panel. Using the included mapping software, you can assign any key command or MIDI message to actions performed with these elements. This turns AUDIO KONTROL 1 into a versatile controller that allows you to 'touch' your software, be it one of the included Native Instruments applications, your favorite sequencer, your graphics software or other media applications such as Winamp™ or iTunes™.
Setup files for popular programs are included, ensuring the use of these features is hassle-free.
All Mapped Out
The integrated mappng software makes assigning software parameters to the control elements parfticularly easy. User-defined assignments can be saved, allowing you to create specific set-ups for all your applications and recall them at any time. An especiallly useful feature is the "modifier" function which essentially turns the buttons into shift or ctrl-buttons, allowing you to manipulate up to 10 parameters using just the four control elements.
TRAKTOR 3 LE: The control knob is assigned to the volume fader of TRAKTOR 3 LE’s main output. By clicking and holding the left button and turning the control, the volume of the left deck can be adjusted. Similarly the volume of the right deck can be adjusted by using the control knob with the right button pressed. Alternatively the pitch of the 2 decks could be adjusted in much the same manner.
PRO-53 XPRESS: Again, the volume fader could be assigned to the control knob. By using the knob when the left button is pressed, a filter cut-off could be adjusted or the resonance when holding the right button clicked.
Innumerable combinations are possible – use the AUDIO KONTROL 1 to access the transport controls and volume of your favourite sequencer or Winamp and iTunes.
