Novation introduces the Twitch touchstrip DJ Controller co-developed with Serato 06/04/11
Novation say that TWITCH is a DJ controller with a completely new take on DJing. Here's what they have to say about it...
The worlds of digital DJ and Controllerist are colliding; performers are looking for new ways to manipulate music.
