EKS Now Shipping New OTUS DJ Controller

EKS has revealed to FutureMusic that they are now shipping their new OTUS DJ MIDI controller. The futuristic OTUS captured the imagination of many digital DJs and controllerists around the world when it was first introduced earlier this year.

Main Features:
» The 7.5″ jog wheel offers both physical and virtual sensitivity adjustments.
» Otus has been designed to substantially reduced vibrations due to its unique sharp cloves feet.
» All of the controls are illuminated by LED indicators for maximum usability in a club environment.
» Advanced MIDI mapper & ASIO software makes creating different setups easy
» The smoked glass surface along with the feet of the controller can be customized
» The Future Proof Ideology of the control layout allows the use of future software features. Assignable buttons, knobs, push-and-rotate selectors and capacitive touchpad enable advanced creative freedom, while the relative touch sensitive slider allows very accurate pitch adjustments.
» All of the controls can be virtually doubled via a color indicated layer selection switch or shift button. The second layer, indicated by LED color changes, offers the option to control two virtual decks with one Otus or even other software like MIDI controllable VJ software.
» A professional level audio/headphone output
