The controller doesn’t make any sound at all. Please explain.

Cool they created their own controller but it isn’t anything that can’t be done with any of the other controllers that are on the market.

Yea you guys are right, another gimmick, which can be done with any other controller. Not only that but the first clip… Juggling by repeatedly pressing a button?? Very little skill involved. The powers that be keep forcing DJs/ musicians this bullshit all that people want is to groove to a fuckin beat man. Djs need not get sucked into this bull. Whatever happen to two turntables, a mixer and some dope skills. (and records of course). Saying that Serato aint that bad if your doing a big set or want to play your own shit without having to get it cut. but please NO MORE CONTROLLERS.

That’s funny, you got Ricci Rucker, one of the illest scratchers ever backing it.

Nobody ever claimed it was juggling it’s another method of audio manipulation. Controllerism.

it is funny though, how the video says “here’s another GAME-CHANGING REVOLUTIONARY device” but it’s just another controller. I fail to see the big deal. It does look fun though.

Definitely not revolutionary, but it looks fun and convenient if you don’t have enough space for a controller. But that fretless fader posted a while back is DEFINITELY revolutionary.

Most definitely!

Thirded. I wish more people were using it… in live hip hop settings. The controller one with the fretless fader is a creative wet dream for skratch DJs… it opens us up to all the other tonal musical traditions that came before like jazz, rock and roll, blues, and classical.

Thats a pretty hyped up video for something controlling cue points. It just seems like a controller that fits on your turntable. There has to be more to it….more info?

We just allowed a beautiful art form, The art of DJing, to be reduced to pushing a bunch of silly ass buttons!!

Just like Robzilla said it opens new doors for turntablist to actually become musicians by manipulating the controller as keys on a piano…..etc,etc.
It looks cool just to play with it but i rather fuck with real records as i always have and i will till the day i die……..but never say never you might like it.

The fatal flaw of the controller one: It is way too goddamn expensive!!

I know im diggin up an old thread here but i take back my negative comment towards controllers. It should be towards those who use them as a front to hide the wackness. If controllers are your thing, or even if they re not!, check this performance out, it may change your mind. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aCA4yiPfFIg
