Technical Specifications

Air Control
Why is the Controller called DJ Control Air?
    Air Stands for "Adjustment by InfraRed": It is a Contactless Control
  • The DJ places his or her hand flat over the infrared beam.
  • The controller calculates the distance between the sensor and the hand, and converts it into a gradual MIDI command.
  • This MIDI command modulates a setting in the DJ software.
Does Air Control Require Specific Light Conditions?
    No, Air Control Functions Under Any Light Conditions
  • The infrared light beam projected towards the hand is invisible.
  • The sensor captures the infrared reflection on the hand, and uses the reflection to calculate the hand's distance.
  • The reflection is the same in both daylight and low light conditions, allowing Air control to be used during the day, at night or in places with weak lighting.
  • Air control functions with all flesh tones. The only incompatibility is the use of black gloves (as the infrared sensor would not be able to detect the reflection).
Eight Pads
    Two Sets of Four Pads Control Loops, Sampler and Effects Commands
  • The DJ taps on the pads with his or her fingertips to send commands such as looping, sampler or effects.
  • The pads light up when touched.
  • In addition to a binary On/Off command, each pad can transfer velocity information to modulate the command.
  • For example: in sampler mode, the velocity can control the volume of a sample's playback. The playback volume depends on how soft or how hard the DJ taps on the pad.
Pressure-Detecting Jog Wheels
    The Jog Wheels Detect the Pressure from the User's Hand
  • With scratch mode enabled, the jog wheels scratch when the hand's weight is detected, and stop scratching when the hand's weight is no longer detected. This allows the DJ to:
    • Stop playback by pressing on the jog wheel.
    • Restart playback by lifting up his or her hand.
    • Scratch by turning the jog wheel while pressing down, and stop scratching by lifting up his or her hand.
    • Bend the pitch (if playback is on) / browse within tracks (if playback is off) by turning the jog wheels using their outer ring, to avoid applying downward pressure.
  • With scratch mode disabled, the jog wheels bend the pitch or browse within tracks when the jog wheels are turned, regardless of the pressure applied.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Beginner Controller

Pros: Cheap! Big bang for your buck, small and portable, light. The pads are sensitive but not overly touchy. Headphone input is 1/4" jack, great for monitor headphones. Sliders/control knobs have a tactile "click" when they pass into their neutral state. USB is fused, more of a personal thing as I tend to lose/tangle cables when they're loose

Cons: Jog wheels are hyper sensitive: there's almost no resistance. This could be a thing of personal preference for someone. The mix output is only a 1/8" jack, which isn't huge for the home user but can become a problem for convenience/sound quality at venues with large speaker setups. The beat grid lights aren't lighting up when connected to Traktor Pro 2 (Could be a configuration issue) The "air" sensor seems a little gimmicky: as far as I know, the sensor only seems to work for effect triggering when using the included software. So far hasn't worked with Traktor Pro 2 or Virtual DJ Pro

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for an intro into mixing or a very small portable controller for on the go, this is the controller for you. A side note, any software besides the included software will require a custom mapping file in order to work properly
