Finger Orchestra For The DJ

If spinning music is your hobby (or job), then the DJ Machine is quite an intriguing prospect for you. The system features seven, 360° rotatable joysticks similar to a synthesizer that modify music in a “haptic and playful way.” Each of the joysticks can be personalized with individual sound effects and can transmit the sound to a receiver via Bluetooth. Sporting bright LED displays, the entire unit looks pretty jazzed up, but the honest confession of Sony-PS-controllers-inspired-tech-for-joysticks is quite heartening!

    This is excellent. I’m amazed this hasn’t been done yet, but more power
    to you. I was thinking of a 4 x 4 grid of xy controller pads, but this looks
    more interesting, and may have better functionality. Just make it so each one is
    midi assignable to multiple parameters. I need one!
