Developer Alexander Nowak let us know about his free MIDI controller app, Kontrol, designed to be used with Native Instruments Traktor DJ software.
The iOS app is designed for wirelessly controlling Traktor from your iPhone or iPad, and it’s now been updated to let you control it from an Apple Watch.
Functions like loop and FX controls, hotcues, play/pause and a crossfader are now accessible right from your wrist. It also lets you jump a few bars back and forth on Deck A and B.
“While it’s debatable if it makes sense to play through a set on a 1.7 inch screen,” notes Nowak, “it’s definitely good enough for a little stunt in a live set.”
Check out the demo and let us know what you think of putting a MIDI controller on your wrist.
Pricing and Availability
Kontrol is available as a free download from Google Play and the iOS App Store.

This is ridiculous but in a good way lol
what is an apple watch?
anyone got one?
Real DJ’s use watches.
A fly landed on my phone. Ruined the set.
They are really trying to make that watch cool. Good for them.
Comes in handy when you end up spending more time at the bar than the booth and don’t want to interrupt your conversation to start the next song. You know, those kind of gigs.
I have 2 turntables and an android tablet and making it a Traktor midi controller for effects is very nice. Who cares about the watch
