Add to Wish List
The TWELVE is a simple, pure and powerful motorized DJ control system without the hassle of fragile needles and skipping tone arms. Keeping things consistent with a familiar turntable layout and size, the only clear differentiator is a precision, multi-function touch strip for track searching and setting or triggering hot cues in place of the tone arm.

The vinyl experience is fully customizable with your favorite slipmat. With an all-metal body the TWELVE is built like a tank, but it has the agility of a sports car. It is truly battle-ready. With the TWELVE, the DJ can scratch and play with all the direct spontaneity and creativity of a turntablist, but with the precision, repeatability and durability of the best digitally-based solutions. The TWELVE is the very best of both. There is simply nothing else like it, anywhere.

Features:
• Full 12" vinyl with motorized platter to control playback
• Traditional, familiar turntable layoutno need to learn something new
• Strip Search with 8 hot-cue-triggers access
• 5.0 kfcm high-torque motor with high/low torque adjust for more traditional setups

• Extreme precision3600 ticks of platter resolution for seamless performance
• MIDI interface via USB that can be connected to the SEVENTY-TWO or your computer
• 33 1/3 and 45 RPM platter speeds
• 8/16/50% pitch with precise dual-resolution detented slider
• Top panel rotary and traditional Motor Off switch allows traditional wind-down effects

update to my earlier review, I LOVE THESE THINGS. the reason I wanted to update was because once I ditched those heavy acrylic control discs that the twelves ship with and put on some regular vinyl, the feel changes completely. The twelves are amazing and 100% worth the money. Also for anyone that doesn't know (a lot of people seem to not know this for whatever reason) You can use these controllers with ANY mixer. All you need is a powered usb hub and you're good to go.

I just picked these up after waiting a LONG time for stock to come in. I'm not sure how I feel. They are pretty nice, and have a ton of advantages traditional dvs (needles/tonearms) but I feel like that new phase tech coming soon used with a pair of pioneer plx 1000's or any other turntable with ultrapitch would be a better bet in terms of responsiveness, features, and value for the $$. I guess time will tell, I have phase preordered and shipping next month.
