News : Fretless Fader – Hacked DJ Mixed

 Monday, March 2nd 2009, 12:00 pm

This is a really interesting video of a hacked DJ mixer which allows pitch control via the crossfader. He’s turned the mixer into a MIDI controller so that the pitch changes as the fader slides up and down the mixer but it still allows you to cut and scratch by moving the crossfader left and right as normal. It’ll make for some really interesting scratch routines as you can see in the video. It’s really interesting to see how DJ technology has really moved forward since I first started DJing back in the mid 80s!
