Numark and Genius jointly introduces the new SCRATCH DECK controller that is designed for Scratch: The Ultimate DJ video game for XBox 360 and PS3.
The SCRATCH DECK features a free-spinning, touch sensitive turntable with a crossfader and 5 Akai Pro MPC-style drum pads. The former allows players to add their own style and manipulate the songs in real time, while the latter give players the opportunity to perform and customize tracks by triggering samples using the very same pads that are the cornerstone of professional hip-hop beat production.
The controller includes also standard game controls found in music rhythm games. Scratch: The Ultimate DJ, featuring the Numark SCRATCH DECK, will be available in Fall 2009.
