    I am excited about the idea of playing such a small controller, but hopefully not having to look at the computer screen (much!)

    Really excited to try out the mixer function on this controller!

    I've currently got the limited purple x1 mk2 - would love to add the new x1 to my setup!

    I think the release of the new x1 shows NI is still serious with the development of Traktor. 👍

    Three things I love… first being the visual cues, the built-in displays and bottom LEDs, that’ll allow me look at my laptop screen less. People want a performer who is engaged in their gear, but a laptop screen can take away from that magic.

    The second being additional dedicated features, mainly the mixer and pattern player. It makes for an easier user experience and I feel it completely justifies buying it despite owning the MK2.

    And last but not least, the design. It’s much sleeker and modern, and the buttons being black will certainly hide any aesthetic wear. The buttons on my Mk2 are yellow from oxidation.

    3 things stand out for me with these new units:

    • modern look
    • led alerts (great for track ending or deck is in loop in dark clubs)
    • USB hub - this one is the kicker for me. Running out of USB space has become a massive problem for anyone using multiple devices. Having this local to the mixer without a bunch of wires going to a laptop stand, where they’ve occasionally come loose, is a massive win for me.

    I’ll have 2 of these units in my new setup alongside a bunch of other gizmos so I’m excited to test it out.

    for new users this is cool... and for those who are older?

    I had the original X1 but haven't used it for years. Great bit of kit though, it'll be interesting to see what this one is all about

    It’s reassuring to see NI finally come out with some new hardware, especially for their Traktor product. Looking forward to to whatever else is in the pipeline! Love the use of leds for visual cues and customization on the new controller too…

    X1 mk3 look fine.

    but...

    on X1 mk1 and mk2 butons all surface illuminated in mk3 only characters or sighn.

    I think it's more like't by x mk1 users because play and cue buttons are the same positionated.

    Have a nice day.

    Been an avid Native Instrument user since 2010 with Traktor as my main dj tool from the MK1 S4 and the Z1 & X1 MK2 including the production VST products.

    With the new X1 MK3 I am sure I will take the deejay skills to another level with all the newer features offered, when playing out to clubs and festivals here in South Africa.

    Bring on the music, the speakers and the new X1 MK3!! <3

    Im really excited to try the new Kontrol X1 Mk3. I recently bought a set of Z1, X1 and F1. I think the Kontrol X1 MK3, can make my mobile setup even compact, because the mixer feature is awesome. And the layout with the new features such as USB ports, make this a perfect candidate for me.

    I see myself using the x1mk3 with stems and Traktor pro 3. Owning the Maschine MK3, I would definitely love to integrate with the X1mk3.
