The unit, which boasts an MSRP of €2,099 including VAT (approximately $2179.11), includes key shift, key sync, pitch play and Serato Flip. “The multicoloured Performance Pads provide instant feedback on pad modes and playing statuses, and thanks to the improved jog wheel latency, scratching is more responsive and precise than ever.”
