Novation Twitch: Brand New Controller with a Twist

re-blog from DJTechtools

Novation announced their new “Twitch” controller today. It’s a jog wheel free controller with controllerism focused performance zones that adopts a lot of elements from my personal designs. Along with 8 cue pads which can be used to slice, trigger and roll tracks it also has a dedicated fader FX feature on each deck.

Along with the fader FX concept pulled from our VCI-100 SE, there is a really interesting story about where many of the elements in this design came from. Once the madness of Musik Messe has calmed down a bit (look for our full report shortly), I will write a full article on the topic which promises to be juicy, titillating and full of international intrigue!
