    Default I had a dream about technics

    I a dream that Technics with a usb port and removable tone arm were released. The tone arm could be put back on to use it as a regular tt or it could be taken off and used as a controller OR both could be used in unison and you could switch back and forth between the two. There was also a novation dicer esque device built into it too. Random dream because I've never thought about this while awake before. Just thought I'd share that.

    that's funny, i had a mash up conversation about technics the other night, saying they should bring out the nuts controller (you know, the vestax 3000 or whatever).

    Put HID platters on them that had that turntable styling...

    They'd kill it!!

    Seriously though, why don't technics come out with the nuts controller and just smash it... everyone would want a technics 2020 HID Controller... all silver with the trademark platter pattern. super dope

    like their cdjs but scaled down.



    A bit like the american audio one but technics and proper...

    That Technics sure was sweet looking. Too bad it was poorly implemented -- a mere shadow of the real 1200s. It would be amazing if they took some of those ideas and put together a controller that had a 10" spinning platter that felt like the real thing. But I guess Numark has beaten them to that punch...

    I think pioneer mashed the cdj market and left technics a little bruised, but i swear they're a sleeping giant (or dying giant) and they should just bring out a dope series of controllers and hammer the scene...

    they wont though... so it's all just a pointless dream

    So I take it that the gemini thing is a bit rubbish? Is it me or do all of the people making mediums for playing music are all just shy of the mark all the time?

    Vestax, A&H, NI etc all non comital to a 4 channel, jog wheel boasting controller for Midi.

    Pioneer, Vestax again, Technics hookin us up with sweet digi control platers that work perfectly on HID support.......

    the list goes on???
    MBP, 15.4", Ableton Live 8 Suite, Novation Remote SL, Pioneer XDJ-RX, Traktor, VCI 100SE!
