The Novation Twitch Touchstrip USB DJ Controller is a completely new take on DJing.
The worlds of digital DJ and Controllerist are colliding; performers are looking for new ways to manipulate music, and Twitch delivers! 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.
