EKS made a stirr at the latest MusikMesse in Frankfurt with their stunning new controller OTUS. Final details have been presented this week. OTUS will be available in June 2008. With another version, the Otus RAW, being added to the Otus product line during the autumn 2008.
Otus is a professional 2-in-1 DJ controller. The revolutionary virtual audio technology enables the use of multichannel soundcard inside Otus with different DJ software. This makes it possible for a DJ to play two audio channels simultaneously with just one controller.
Otus is equipped with a big, configurable 7.5” jog wheel and new features for effects control, including touchpad and two motion sensors. Otus also brings you an innovative switch key which enables the DJ to flexibly use two layers of controls. To add more show into the mix, the effect controls are placed to make performing more visual.
All this combined with the state of the art space age design, solid aluminum build and fully configurable controls makes Otus a true next generation DJ controller.
With the advanced MIDI support and MIDI mappers it will be easy to configure Otus with just about any software application imaginable, be it audio, video or something else altogether, leaving the boundaries to be defined only by the artist’s imagination.
A rugged single deck controller Otus RAW will be added to the Otus product line during the autumn 2008. Otus RAW has a more traditional approach to controlling software and will be the perfect bridge between the CD players of today and digital possibilities of tomorrow. Otus RAW will feature 7 1/2 inch jog wheel, high quality physical pitch slider, touchpad for effect/mouse control and 4 velocity pads for effect/sample/cuepoint launch.
