Outline

Recently, it has become common for people to store music on their PCs and enjoy it in various ways, and the DJ (music play) applications that utilize the advantages of digital data have matured. There are many special devices to play these in real time, but this product was built with innovations for letting general consumers feel and enjoy the music without specializing the product just for DJ play. The bundled software is full of an analog feel and playful spirit that is also visual, and the controller is simple and has excellent operability so the user can operate it intuitively. In addition, the professional level audio interface is incorporated, and to meet different needs, various models are offered with different names, colors and bundled software.

Evaluation

This is clearly a design for a tool for enjoying music. The design features a high degree of completeness down to the smallest detail, such as the levers and buttons designed in consideration of operability. Color is effectively used on the silver or black monochrome body to provide detail accents.
