Native Audio 8 DJ

Native Instruments opened its appearance at the NAMM expo by unveiling the Audio 8 DJ interface for serious live artists. Made to connect to virtually every device a DJ might need during a performance, the device has four pairs of RCA inputs and outputs as well as MIDI input and output connectors; microphone input and quarter-inch headphone jacks are also present for announcements and sound monitoring. Dual sets of phono pre-amps and 96KHz Cirrus Logic analog-to-digital converters preserve audio quality, Native boasts.

The Audio 8 DJ is designed to work with Native's Traktor 3 live software and connects through USB to computers using Mac OS X 10.4 or Windows XP PCs, but will work with most DJ suites, the company says. It requires a 1.4GHz G4 or Athlon and should be ready to ship by April for $450. [via Tech Digest]
