In this official Native Instruments promo, 5x DMC World Champion DJ Craze performs a turntablism routine using Traktor Scratch Pro and the Kontrol X1 controller:

Using the X1, Craze simultaneously triggers cue points on both decks, while still staying true to his roots with some serious beatjuggling.

By combining traditional vinyl techniques like juggling, scratching and body tricks with advanced controller-based functions such as cue point manipulation, tempo-synced effects and ultra-quick track changes, this performance showcases the cutting edge of turntablism and controllerism using the latest digital DJing technology.
