Device can be used with iTunes content
Vestax, in collaboration with Algoriddim, has introduced Spin, a DJ controller for Macs. The device works in conjunction with the DJ software djay 3, enabling users to mix and play music from their iTunes playlists. Touch-sensitive jog wheels can be used in analog mode to mimic the scratch and mixing functions of genuine turntables.
The device integrates a USB port for attaching a computer, along with speaker outputs, headphone connections and a microphone input. The USB connection provides power, eliminating the need for a dedicated AC adapter.
Spin requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher and can be purchased from Apple's online store for $250. The package includes Algoriddim's djay 3 software, a microphone, and a USB cable.
