With the new TMC-1 and TMC-2, Omnitronic introduces two compact USB MIDI controllers which are supplied with the powerful software Virtual DJ LE by Atomix Productions.
Both handy controllers can either be powered via USB or the included power unit, which does not only conserve the laptop's battery in live operation but also increases failure safety with computer breakdowns. Both controllers were designed as wieldy desktop units to give users an alternative to the widely used rack-mounted controllers.
The Omnitronic TMC-1 is designed for DJs possessing a high-grade audio interface and thus comes without analog inputs and outputs. Despite its inexpensive price the TMC-1 features appealing haptics and boasts fine potentiometers, faders and large jog wheels for sound manipulation. Samples and effects of the supplied software can directly be selected via the numerous control elements.
The Omnitronic TMC-2 is an all-in-one solution that combines the benefits of the TMC-1 with a fully-fledged 2-channel audio interface and several finesses. Hence it is possible to route an external line signal (e.g. coming from an iPod) directly to the master output to avoid a complete audio dropout in case of a computer breakdown. The input of the DJ microphone for emceeing and announcements is directly connected to the output and thus does not use up processor resources. What's more, the interface has separately controllable outputs for master, booth, and headphones. Additionally, the master signal is available at the recording output.
