MESSE11: A New Take On DJing

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.
Instead of simply mixing tracks together with 'decks in a box', TWITCH re-focuses on cutting up beats, glitch-esque looping, firing off cue points and getting a totally different level of control over FX.
TWITCH has been co-developed with Serato and comes with ITCH DJ software, which is ultra-stable and has some powerful performance features, including the ability to beat-match your tracks so you can do some incredible remixing in real-time without falling out of sync.
