X1 Mk1 was better
DJLaszlo 13.04.2019
I've been using the MK1 since it came out, but the play and cue buttons have stopped responding which forced me to upgrade to the newer version, but I can not get used to the slight changes that NI "improved" in this version. Removing one of the knobs was a big mistake in my opinion. I used them to move my loop sections - a lot of times in the heat of the moment you trigger a loop too late, and for this it was extremely useful to be able to move them by one beat with the two top knobs. However, this cannot be done now without completely remapping the unit. I think it's a shame that they've discontinued support for the MK1 in later OS X versions - I really hope NI will release an MK3 version which is more similar to the original unit. I will have to sell these ones and look for two Mk1 on the second hand market. Please make sure you're comfortable with the changes before you upgrade the from MK1.


Technically Precised Contestant
tONKPROJECT 24.03.2020
i could experience more controllers before purchasing them ,electronic music does offer a wide range of definitions,hours spent in front of computer materialized in the precised product achievements.technically i could write about the pleasure of having it every layer i put down,track after track or setting the next playlist , not mention the simple guidelines from where u can build up your perfect mix.uc-33 evolution made history in the digital age and i think Maschine Jam and X1 MK2 could be a strong contestant.


An awesome controller
ranko's 28.01.2022
I started playing sets at parties with a controller of a friend, it's an impulse 300. A nice, cheap, intro lvl controller. But working on Traktor with it felt like something is missing. so I've decided to get the X1/Z1 bundle and boy am I happy I did that.
The X1 is an exciting controller, gets a bit of getting used to but it's just awesome! You can do everything, and after a bit of practice you'll ask yourself two questions -
1. Why didn't I get it sooner
2. why do you even need more in a controller

I highly recommend anyone who wants a smaller set-up or who's getting started to get this controller.


Great for portability
Anonymous 25.03.2016
This is a really cool controller, I bought it initially thinking it had a cross fader and EQ functions on it (I confused it with the Z1), this ONLY controls effects, and loops, as well as cue, play and sync functions in traktor. In short it's a great addition to your DJ set up, very handy for it's portability, and seemingly very robust build quality. I'm very pleased with it. Great service from Thomann as usual.
