Touch Innovations XG DJ System

NEWS: Touch Innovations wows with stunning see-through, all-glass, multi-touch control display

Physical hardware touch technology and cutting-edge software specialist Touch Innovations is proud to announce availability of XG - a stunning see-through, all-glass design demonstrating its most luxurious touch screen system yet - as of January 3…



Wowing wherever with a seamless bezel-free design, an all-glass body, and a 39-inch see-through PCAP (Projective Capacitive) touch display supporting 10 simultaneous touch points, XG is quite unlike anything anyone has ever seen (or touched), truly exuding that special ’XG’ factor! For this unique combination of function and finesse makes it a perfect fit for impressing clients and audiences alike in almost any fixed location scenario, performance-based or otherwise — on stage, including high-end clubs’ DJ booths, and elsewhere, from hotel lobbies to mall kiosks and museums to showrooms, with much in-between and beyond, such as gaming events and even upmarket restaurants. Realigning performance and infotainment control possibilities are almost endless.

Entertainment-ready, the Windows-compatible XG is available as two distinct versions — XG PRO (with an onboard high-power Intel PC with 500 GB storage for easy installation and preferred software usage) or XG LITE (without an onboard PC). Allowing for the most luxurious display, all components are conveniently sited inside the base unit, avoiding unsightly cable clutter. The projected 39-inch display is brighter than any other touch screen system, increasing both visual attractiveness as well as legibility. Little wonder, then, that it is guaranteed to command attention in almost any environment.

Every XG system ships bundled with Emulator 2, Touch Innovations’ critically-acclaimed customisable multi-touch controller flagship software for any MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) application. As such, Emulator 2 really represents a license to dream, making it perfectly possible for users to create their dream controller by bringing about a multi-touch experience with everything and anything available at their fingertips. For Emulator 2 includes all standard objects like sliders, knobs, modulation pads, encoders, buttons, and much more besides. But best of all, as each and every component is fully customisable, creativity is effectively only limited by the user’s imagination... and, of course, the software being controlled. It’s a killer combination!

Concludes Touch Innovations COO Cody Myer: “XG offers our most elegant setup to date, bridging us into the digital signage world while retaining high-end performance for all user scenarios. As we continue to develop hybrid hardware/software solutions for creative artists, products like our ELITE series — a DJ’s dreamlike mobile marriage of road-ready, cutting-edge multi-touch technology with a massive see-through screen — and, now, our new XG models are becoming a bigger part of our business.” 

XG PRO and XG LITE are available for online ordering directly from Touch Innovations at $6,895.00 USD ($180.00 USD/month) and $5,999.00 USD ($165.00 USD/month) respectively from here: https://touchinnovations.com/xg/

The Theory For Our Revenge 'OBORO'

REVIEW: Japanese multimedia art duo make a great first impression with their mix of industrial, trap and operatic pop The following is a paid for review and post, via humanhuman (see below).  It is always an honour and a pleasure to receive new music to check out and review; especially  when it's as enjoyable a listening experience as this first offering from The Theory For Our Revenge is. The Theory For Our Revenge are COLD FAITH and Jhas; a Japanese music production, fashion stylist and visual art duo The Theory For Our Revenge are COLD FAITH and Jhas; a Japanese music production, fashion stylist and visual art duo. Their debut single ,'OBORO', is a slice of experimental electro-trap / operatic-art-pop. Starting with an industrial sounding chugging and churning, the track moves into frosty, haunting melodies. It's in these opening bars that the only potential hiccup occurs. Around the 0:38 and 1:12 marks there's a jagged synth whistle which i

Objects In Orbit 'Panoramas'

REVIEW :  The New Beatmaker favourite changes his name, hones his craft on potential best album of 2020 Producer, Sound Engineer, Musician and Videographer Objects In Orbit has been a favourite of the site since 2013. Whilst there is not a single bad project in the catalogue of the artist formerly known as Evil Alex, he has evolved and improved almost constantly from one project to the next. He is a master of sonic suspense with many of his projects sounding perfectly at home in an art installation or art-house cinema. His trademark style mixes hip hop born sample-based techniques and 4/4 beat composition along with jazz influenced time signatures and experimentation. He often incorporates eerie, industrial stylings and at times dissonant tones.  Whilst predominantly instrumental, Objects In Orbit finely weaves into layers of musical samples either long stretches of dialogue, which make the listener feel as though they are eavesdropping on private conversation, or snip
