So, somebody was asking if it were possible to use the Traktor F1 controller with the Maschine software to cut costs. Here is my opinion on that…
“…I’ve been looking at native instruments Traktor F1 and I was wondering, with the Traktor software, could I make hip hop beats with the F1? or would I need the Mashine software, if so, is the F1 compatible with Mashine software? because the Mashine hardware is a little bit out of my price range at the moment..”
You can only use Traktor F1 in the Traktor Pro software. I would suggest you purchase a used Maschine MK1, as the Studio and the MK2 are available on the open market, and because of this the MK1 will be a lot cheaper for you to purchase. Also the good thing about this is, the new Maschine 2.0 software will work the MK1, MK2 and obviously on the Maschine Studio.
Hope this helps!
