Musik messe 2011 - Novation Twitch (for serato Itch + traktor pro mapping)

I'm utterly excited about this piece of gear. (But then again i say that every time I see a new interesting midi controller) The twitch could persuade me to go the controllerist route. It's tailored for it, that much is sure.

Official novation Information:

TWITCH comes with Serato's powerful ITCH DJ software, but it is also a standard MIDI controller and audio interface that works with all major DJ software including Traktor and Ableton Live. Powerful 2 and 4 deck mappings for Traktor PRO can be downloaded from the Novation website. All the controls you need to perform have been mapped to the Touchstrips, knobs, faders and buttons on TWITCH. A free Traktor PRO overlay is included in the TWITCH box which labels what each control does. Simply place it on TWITCH to transform it into a Traktor controller with a difference. As MIDI controller, TWITCH will currently map to Ableton Live so you can launch clips, control devices, channel levels, crossfader and more. It also has a built in audio interface making it the perfect compact Ableton DJ controller. Comprehensive Ableton Live control will be coming soon from Novation.
