    Default Scratch: The Ultimate DJ controller pics!

    via engadget.com here is the first shots of the upcoming numark controller for the Scratch: The Ultimate DJ videogame coming out in Summer/Fall..

    looks like a simple,portable, design - now if someone got it mapped with an HID-MIDI converter....

    i see this as potentially awesome, and potentially horrible.

    awesome: if digital dj's can convert this, the possibilities are pretty cool. plus, we'll probably all pwn the game (if it's not crap) :P

    horrible: i can smell the rise of people who are going to be like "oh shiz i'm a dj cuz i can master this game" and thus the influx and rise of more wannabe djs.

    it's all speculative, but you know how influential these video game things can be

    Meh, I still say it's not going to go that way.

    No one plays Rock Band and then goes out and makes it big as a lead guitarist. *shrug*

    Granted, the mediums are slightly different, but still, I have a feeling once they start actually DJing they'll learn how stupid they are.

    Just wanted to add this pix from a leaked shot of the game.



    this is gonna be crazy to see how digital dj's are gonna be viewed after this game comes out.

    I will be purchasing this game and slapping my Traktor Ready & Traktor Scratch stickers!

    I don't have a console to play it, but once I do I think I'll be giving this thing a shot.

    Maybe it'll teach me how to scratch (ps... I'm kidding)

    I know how to scratch, its not that hard, just takes alot of pratice. It took me abt 6 months to get the basic scratches down.

    I know this video game should open the door to new dj's (good and bad) and for sure add more fuel to the vinyl vs digital war. But F-it...if your a true controllerist your in it for the long run.

    Wait... i think this game has crazy potential. Think about what people allready rock out with those guitars ( yo monika ) Now imagine what posibilities are give with a free-spinning, touch sensitive turntable and 5 Akai Pro MPC-style drum pads plus that neat little fader. You can trigger your own(!) samples from a usb-mic. And the game comes with 60 (!) Battle-records. I gonna get the game just for the records rip them somehow and then give it a go in a serial program.

    Somehow the signals from the controller can be converted, we´ve seen it before with the guitars. think about controlling your favorite software with this piece, maybe additional to a controller, so one can have a touch sensitive platter for little amount of cash. I fear that the crossfader will be kinda crappy, but i learned crab-scratches on a old numark-fader so there´s still a little hope that it turns out to be cool. just my 2 cents peace

    Actually i think its good, it could potentialy teach a whole new generation of djs digital mixing tricks. On the flipside it could be totally crap and laughable

    Either way it will without a doubt get more people interested in djing either way it goes, i think were going to see a huge influx in the amount of djs over the next few years.
