    I thought about this a few years ago. I have the drawings and notes in my notebook. Why, oh why, didn’t I do something about it then? I would be well on my way to being rich and famous. Bugger!

    This isn’t so much a new concept, but more of a new application. I’ve been using the Ten1 Fling to control an effects joystick on an iPad lemur template I made for some time now. I’ll post up a video of it when I get the chance.

      Indeed – it’s the first time we’ve seen it specifically in an application for DJs though. What did you normally have the Fling mapped to in terms of effects? I’m intrigued : )

        Here is a picture:

        There’s a lot of possibilities. At the moment, I have it so you can customize it on the fly with 4 drop down menus at the top which let you assign any of Traktor’s effects to the 4 axises of the joystick. So for instance, I can have +Y add in reverb and +X add in a delay making a changing echo effect as I move the joystick in the outer right quadrant. The rest of the layout is essentially a replication of the DJM-2000 beat slicer, but made for Traktor, along with a few other twists I added in ;). It’s a great ton of fun to use; can really go bananas slicing and glitching up acapellas or beats on the fly. The layout’s changed and evolved a lot over time, though when I’m completely happy with it I’ll post it up in the mappings here.

            The Fling had totally passed me by until I read your posts here, rafiq. I’ve now got one ordered and I’m excited to get it incorporated into my Lemur setup. Cheers!

            Glad I could help. It has a very solid feel, much like an xbox 360 controller. My only gripe is the range is somewhat limited, though the beauty of Lemur and TouchOSC is that you can compensate for that :)
