GEMINI DJ, a division of GCI TECHNOLOGIES and the birthplace of modern DJ technologies, unveiled its FIRSTMIX DJ MIDI controller at NAMM 2011.
The FIRSTMIX is a beginner's entry to the DJ realm. With a computer and the FIRSTMIX, anyone can begin their forays into DJing! The FIRSTMIX uses your Mac or PC and your music collection to enable you to DJ parties and events! The FIRSTMIX is a DJ MIDI controller with a standard USB connection that comes bundled with MixVibes CROSS LE performance DJ software to give you a powerful all-in-one DJ solution!
The FIRSTMIX recreates the two-decks-and-a-mixer setup that professional DJs use around the world. Just load your tracks to either Deck A or Deck B on the MixVibes CROSS LE software, and then control it, cue up the start point, and even perform advanced transitions and scratching!
The FIRSTMIX has complete DJ controls such as tone controls and sync so you can mix two tracks creatively and match the tempo. Additionally, the FIRSTMIX comes with an effects section to add spice and space to your mixes! Yet with all of these features and capability, the FIRSTMIX is easy enough for anyone to learn on!
"Gemini's FIRSTMIX is the perfect way for anyone to discover DJing," said David Cabasso, Vice President of Product Development at GCI Technologies. "With the FIRSTMIX we made a simple yet powerful DJ Control Surface that anyone can enjoy."
The FIRSTMIX is the newest addition to Gemini's Digital DJ Controller line. The FIRSTMIX will be available through musical instrument, electronics, and DJ retailers. The FIRSTMIX has a suggested street price of $79.95. The FIRSTMIX will be shipping worldwide Q1 2011.
