Vestax, in partnership with Algoriddim, has just introduced a new USB midi/audio controller, Spin, specifically made for Djay 3 (see our Djay review). It’s a plug and play device (no drivers, so class compliant), the jog wheel seems to be quite different from the ones we’re used to. There’s a tabletop microphone included in the package, and a USB connection. No words on the materials used yet, but since we’re talking of a 1,5 kg device I guess it’s plastic (mostly).
It requires OS X 10.4.11 or higher, and it only works with Intel Macs (but we need to double check this). Price: 250$, to be sold only in Apple Stores in the US and Canada (soon elsewhere too). More info on the official page.
Well, at least for american guys this Vestax Spin seems to be a great package for starters and it could be a nice christmas gift, since it comes bundled with a copy of Djay 3. Let us know how it works…
