I'd say wait a couple of weeks for this...

And a few more external buttons.

I'd recommend the Behringer BCR2000, just cause not only is it the cheapest, but it's the most flexible too.

That knobotron looks like a Roided up version of my Doepfer Drehbank!
I guess its a Midibox project?

I'm not a DJ but I can tell you that a Drehbank would be not the best controller for DJing. Good for synths and mixing though.

Yeah. I have the same feeling about the BCR2000.

yeah it is.

I'm keen to build a hdj'ing version. With a very ergonomic design and a vareity of knob sizes and row of faders etc... But I'll probably never get around to it.
