Creative Music Interaction

Touchtable is a PMP that is interactive and intuitive. It features a large controller wheel that surrounds the screen and performs just like a turntable. It’s even sensitive to touch and pressure and when you use it in combo with the surrounding function buttons, it facilitates absolute user control over a track, through precise position, timing and pitch manipulation.

Features:

  • One function button controls the simultaneous switching to a secondary track, allowing the user to mix records on the fly, or to scratch samples over a track.
  • Through the cue output, each track is directed to either the left or right headphone, the beat and pitch can then be matched, a cue point created, and the combined tracks mixed out the main phono output.
  • Two devices can also be combined wirelessly at the click of a button, to act similarly to the traditional DJ set up, just at around 1:8 the scale.
  • This function also allows for multiple users to mix and scratch tracks together, combining their own Touchtable devices through one output.
  • The device not only adds interaction to the personal listening experience, but can be used for performance.
  • The Touchtable can be plugged into a computer, where it acts as a midi device, working with built in software, allowing complete creativity and control over customization and music creation.
  • Touchtable allows for complex interactions, comparable to a complete DJ set up, however the device itself is very simplistic: designed for ease of assembly/disassembly, interchangeability and miniaturization through technology. It is not only ultra portable, but cost effective, easy and enjoyable to use.

    I love this design. I want it to go into production so i can buy a set. Im a beginner dj and an industrial design student and this wouldve saved me a lot of money and space. However I would like to see a concept for a mixer interface between the two devices like a traditional dj set up has. The one thing about that is scaling that part down so much could be detrimental to the usage of the fader. Just a few things to think about. Otherwise I love it.

    Not sure if it’s as functional as the larger Pacemaker Handheld DJ Device (pacemaker.net)… as this is missing a crossfader\faders (EQ? FX?)… but it’s really cute.

    That is way too small. Professional DJ’s would get laughed at, its a joke. It does look pretty smart in a sense though.

  • The cause for so many Miami Kitchen remodeling projects is
    simply because people are deciding to save a lot more funds
    by spending their time inside the residence and cooking fresh
    meals that cost much less than a night out inside
    the town. A few indulgent upgrades to build cooking more
    interesting are welcome enhancements, too. These
    pieces of real estate are often purchased by individuals as investment properties.

  • If you can’t search online, then call the secretary of state’s office and ask

    If its taken you 5, 10 or 15 years to get into the condition youre in now, then trust me, a stroll just isnt enough.
    You should ask relatives, colleagues, friends, neighbors or anyone in your surroundings.

    Clothing that is tight fit clings too much and draws attention to
    your flaws. Most bloggers write amazing stuff to start
    with, but then as their enthusiasm wanes the quality slides.
