Thanks to GearJunkies for this one. This remarkable looking DJ controller from Finnish company EKS had us drooling. They call it OTUS – Next Generation Digital DJ Controller, and I can see why. Here’s what they say: “Otus is a professional 2-in-1 DJ controller. The revolutionary virtual audio technology enables the use of multichannel soundcard inside Otus with different DJ software. This makes it possible for a DJ to play two audio channels simultaneously with just one controller. Otus is equipped with a big, configurable 7.5� jog wheel and new features for effects control, including touchpad and two motion sensors. Otus also brings you an innovative switch key which enables the DJ to flexibly use two layers of controls. To add more show into the mix, the effect controls are placed to make performing more visual. All this combined with the state of the art space age design, solid aluminum build and fully configurable controls makes Otus a true next generation DJ controller. With the advanced MIDI support and MIDI mappers it will be easy to configure Otus with just about any software application imaginable, be it audio, video or something else altogether, leaving the boundaries to be defined only by the artist’s imagination.� Otus will be available in June.

Dj Groovy    Said...

I don't know... looks great and all, but having to switch channels in one controller doesn't sound right to me. Being a dj, when mixing i need to have direct access to both channels at the same time! Also i'm a little skeptic about the knobless pitch control...
