The Mini Innofader is a user replaceable long life and low profile fader that can fit into many different mixers and controllers to give users a very durable and adjustable upgrade option. The Mini Innofader PNP is like a slimmed down version of the bigger Innofader so that it can fit into smaller spaces, but it still retains the solid/smooth contruction, the ability to adjust the cut-in distance, the polarity, and the sharpness of the curve.
Pioneer DJ has released the DDJ-SP1 USB MIDI controller that is designed to work in conjunction with the new Serato DJ 1.5+ software so users can trigger new effects and samples with the 16 velocity-sensitive performance pads, buttons, and knobs in a nice compact package.
