Tweaker – Live Performance Controller for Ableton, Traktor and Serato.
Today at Scan we were given an exclusive chance to quickly have a bash with the new Tweaker by Electrix, a Live Performance Controller for Ableton, Traktor and Serato.
As three of us on the Pro Audio team use each one of those programs we were all keen to have a go.
Firstly I tried setting it up with the Ableton overlay and to make this change you lift off the fader pots and switch the overlay which can then be quickly put in place.
The first most noticeable aspect of the controller is its build quality. It’s clearly aimed at the live user in clubs/on stage, the casing is very robust and will definitely take some wear and tear expected from regular gigging.
For installation, all I needed to do was to download the Ableton script/template from the Electrix website. The device is plug and play for both Windows and Mac and on starting up Ableton, Tweaker could be seen in the Midi device list and was ready to use.
Have a look at the video to see Simons first impressions and look out for a more function and feature based video soon.
