Fretless Fader Midi Prototype with Vestax Controller One

JohnBeez is a clever chap. Being a strong and tireless proponent of Vestax’s Controller One MIDI turntable combo, his mind clearly went off on a related tangent and set about making his flight of fancy into a reality. The result is a Vestax PMC06, where the whole crossfader is mounted on a rail mechanism which itself is a MIDI pitch fader. Genius. CHECK THE FUCKING VID!

Skratchworx HQ ponder all kinds of crazy fader mods – doing things that they’re not really supposed to do, but JohnBeez’s particular function never cropped up before, and is just so logical. Of course, this doesn’t need a Controller One to work – it could be done with a PDX-3000, but having MIDI pitch at hand as well as the C1’s pitch buttons can only make the life of a scratch musician that little bit more interesting.

No word yet on whether this is a strictly one off homebrew project, built to order jobbie or will be picked up by Vestax. I’m sure John will make things clear for us in due course.

“This is the first public view of the Fretless Fader system I designed for use with the Controller One (posted February 22, 2009). With this you can cut and change notes through 2 octaves without taking your hands away from the vinyl and fader. Big thanks to Gizmo at skratchworx.com for the feature! Stay tuned for an in depth look in the next vid.” JohnBeez
