Glanzmann and Faderfox announce 4TrackTrigger DJ controller
German MIDI controller manufacturer Faderfox and Switzerland’s Glanzmann Digital DJ Solutions have announced details of the muscular 4TrackTrigger controller specifically made for Traktor 2.5.
Undoubtedly one of the most awe-inspiring DJ controllers we’ve seen, the 4TrackTrigger seems purpose built for those who feel that computers and touchscreen technology is killing the art of tactile control. With a staggering 150 buttons, 17 encoders, 17 pots, 6 displays and 188 LEDs, the unit also has the capacity to control 4 virtual decks at once, with pedal connections to control every effect parameter on the fly, all contained with a Faderfox manufactured aluminium case as beefy as an Allen & Heath Xone 92.
This isn’t the first time Faderfox have created such a unit – the two year old Faderfox 4midiloop was their first all in one controller, but the design of this beast makes it look like it’s been cannibalised from the contents of a long-abandoned seaside video arcade. The unit will supposedly be highly limited, with an “ultra small production run”, and is expected to cost 1500€ (about £1174) plus VAT and shipping.
