announced that the DFX-1, the first trackball controlled audio
signal processor, has begun shipping.
Exposing the DJ to a new level of
audio effects control, the DFX-1 features 85 basic and combination
effect presets, which are synchronized to any audio source on-the-fly
using Stanton's advanced BPM engine. Designed for both live and
recording applications, the DFX-1 has both RCA & 1/4 " connections.
Since the trackball's X axis and
Y axis allow control of separate effect parameters, the user can
simultaneously control the effect delay time and feedback on the
filter effects, while using a wide smooth sweep. The trackball will
allow the operator to start with his favourite presets -- such as
Echo, Stereo Pan, Transformer, Flanger, Filter, Auto-Filter, Reverb,
and Pitch Shifter -- and deviate from there to create even more
dynamic effects. A quick spin of the trackball will create hyper
filter effects or a tour around the globe will deliver more
transitional fluid effects.
