If vinyl purists were uncomfortable with the direction DJ’ing was heading before, their discomfort is about to reach sticky heat/itchy wool sweater levels after seeing this. Introducing the MixFader, the first connected crossfader “with a dedicated app that dematerializes the classic turntables on any smartphone and tablet.” Created by the same good folks that brought you the EDJing app (which you can check out here http://www.edjing.com), this new crossfader essentially eliminates the biggest complaint/drawback EDJing had: latency. As their preview video beautifully depicts, the lag between what your hands do and what sonically takes place seems almost non-existent, a night and day difference from the previous in-app crossfader. Sleek design, simple Bluetooth connectivity, and undoubtedly a lower price tag than a traditional mixer, the MixFader offers an alternate route that might get heavily traveled when it drops this fall. Hate it or love it, it’s arrival can guarantee this: the DJ world is about to get a whole lot more interesting.
