Pad tap sequences may also be recorded in real time and sampled sounds from the mic or music player can also be played on the unit’s pads.


Featuring a large 7 inch platter, the  XW-DJ1, which comes in stylish black,  offers the vibe of an analogue turntable with filter controls and cross fader. It is compatible with Alogoriddim’s djay2 apps for iTunes too. Essentially the units offer users the ability to emulate their fave DJs and producers. It is battery powered and offers a built-in speaker.
