DJing has really evolved since the 1990s. Nearly everyone uses some kind of digital interface to spin, whether it be Serato Scratch Live, Traktor 3 or even the Pacemaker. Wacom, the tablet guys, are entering into the DJ controller market with the Nextbeat. This device features a removable, wireless scratch controller that you can use to dance around the room whilst still scratching. Quite a neat idea.
In addition to the wireless gimmick, the Nextbeat features plenty of knobs, some buttons, sliders and even a touchscreen to use for mixing it up. It includes FX units and a sampler to ensure you can keep the asses shakin’ into the night.
