DJ purists, your dreams have been answered because there’s a cool little invention that could potentially bring back the vinyl era (not that it’s ever truly gone). Thanks to a nifty new tool Phase by French company MWM, you can now essentially scratch vinyl without using a needle in your DJ sets.
Phase works by translating the movements of a record into standard timecode format called DVS (Digital Vinyl System) used by most digital DJ tools such as Traktor and Serato. Phase works on any vinyl, simply by being affixed on top of a record, and it plays the digital files via your standard DJ tool (using DVS) which means that you can scratch and play records to your heart’s desire without the need of a needle. Phase is extremely portable, as you can see from the video below, and works with any turntable and any record player setup.
Check out the intro video for more details. Phase is expected to be released this summer at a $300 price point.
We're very proud to introduce you our latest DJ innovation: Phase!!!Phase reinvents timecode technology letting you control tracks playing from your DJ software without using cartridge or vinyl! Phase is a big step for DJs and we hope, will establish a new standard in turntablism practice. Shout out to Groove Sparkz for the mad performance!! 🙌🏻👊🏻Follow us all the weekend at NAMM on Facebook Live 🔥🔥CHECK HERE: www.phase-project.comInstagram: @phase_dj
