Twitch has been developed in collaboration with Serato to be a DJ controller with a difference. It comes with Serato ITCH, DJ software that can automatically beat-match tracks, and it has Touchstrip controls for ITCH's new performance tools.

 

It can also be MIDI-mapped to other DJ software such as Traktor or Ableton Live.

 

The Twitch control surface comes with two banks of eight large Triggerpads, cross-fader and per-channel Fader FX. The two LED-backlit Touchstrips let you manipulate your tracks using gestures as you would on a multi-touch trackpad or touchscreen. Now, you can grab, pinch, tap and nudge to navigate, perform and improvise with your tunes.

It has four performance modes (Hot Cues, Slicer, Auto Loop and Loop Roll) that interact with ITCH, so you can mash up your tracks and mix them back together. The Hot Cues mode lets you jump to markers in your tracks, and re-trigger up to eight hits, like you can with a sampler.

 

Slicer mode allows you to re-arrange your tracks while they’re still playing using a step sequencer-style user interface. Twitch’s Auto Loop and Loop Roll modes allow you to further manipulate tracks and, in combination with the Touchstrips, change loop lengths in the mix to create glitch effects.

 

Effects can be assigned to the channel faders at the touch of a button, so you can perform tricks with fader movements as well as with the knobs of the Master Effects section.

 

Twitch is bus-powered – plug in the USB and audio cables to play. It includes a 2-in 4-out USB audio interface with balanced master and booth outputs, which can be connected directly into a PA system or home setup.

 

Quarter-inch and mini-jack headphone outputs are included. There’s also a Mic/Aux channel with mono jack and stereo RCA inputs so vocalists and MCs can be blended with an external audio source, such as an MP3 player, and routed through Twitch’s effects and master outputs.
