PULSE CONTROL for DJ performance using light

“PULSE CONTROL” uses light that gives you a visual representation of DJ performance,by build-in LED on each channel faders, and a translucent JOG “PURE PLATTER” that has a red and blue LED around the ring.

◆PULSE CONTROL main animations
A blue LED on the jog wheel shows how close the phase of the mix is during a mix. The bigger the difference in pitch, the weaker the light. The closer the match, the more intense the light shines.
LEDs in the channel faders match the beat of the track in play. Plus the strength of the light reflects output.
A red light travels from the Load button towards the Jog Wheel to indicate when a track has been loaded.
Various light patterns on the Jog Wheel clearly show which FX DJs have applied.
  • * Serato DJ Intro dosen’t support PULSE CONTROL.
  • * ”djay” dosen’t support MIX PULSE.
  • * CrossDJ and Cross don’t support LAUNCH PULSE and FX PULSE.

Unique “Delight” design concept suits every environment
