[Video] Vestax Spin2 Revealed
A few short weeks ago, Vestax announced a new update to their successful entry-level Digital DJ controller for the MAC platform called the Spin2. The Spin2 DJ MIDI controller is fully certified by Apple Inc to work with any Mac, iPad, iPhone, and the iPod Touch along with the Algoriddim djay app for mixing, cueing and scratching with great results. The Spin2 has controls for cue points, triggers, loops, effects, samples, and neat jog wheels to put you in the mix. The biggest story with the Spin2 is the new ability of the Mac iOS 6 to now split the outputs into two proper outputs to provide DJ's with true Stereo Main out and a true stereo Cue Out for monitoring. Check out the video below to see it all in action. These are due in market by December for around $400...
Vestax Announces Spin2 DJ MIDI Controller
Mix your iTunes music with the No.1 DJ app, djay and Spin2
Tokyo, Japan – October 5th 2012 – Vestax Corporation introduces Spin2, the world’s first DJ MIDI controller certified by Apple Inc. to control applications on Mac, iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. Spin2 will make its debut at BPM 2012 @NEC in Birmingham, UK, Hall 20 Booth #B27, October 6th – 8th.
Spin2 is an all-in-one 2-channel DJ controller designed together with Algoriddim, the creators of the popular music-mixing djay apps for Mac, iPhone and iPad and the video-mixing app vjay for iPad. Spin2 plug & plays with each popular app from Algoriddim, skipping complicated setups to immediately mix songs from iTunes libraries and videos in media libraries.
Spin2 is bundled with djay for Mac and takes full control of all of its essential features with a simplified easy to use layout. DJs can access desired parts of songs instantly with the Touch Strip control, jump to cue points, trigger loops, add effects, play samples, scratch with jog wheels, instantly sync the BPM of songs and record their mixes all from Spin2.
Spin2 supports the new multi-channel and multi-route audio features of Apple’s latest iOS 6, which enables DJs to cue and output their mixes in full stereo with their iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. Spin2 also supports previous iOS versions by splitting the stereo channel into two mono signals and sending each to master and cue. All songs are processed and output through the studio grade 24bit/48kHz built-in audio interface, with premium sound quality and at its true clarity.
Thanks to the new features of djay for iPad and iPhone, DJs can now browse, preview and purchase iTunes music from within the djay app while mixing with Spin2, save cue points and meta data generated with djay wirelessly to iCloud and stream their mixes wirelessly to Air-play supported devices.
