The Future Of DJing: The Touch Screen Turntable

The ATTIGO TT is a futuristic DJ controller, created by Scott Hobbs, a student at Dundee University studying innovative product design.

He’s created a touch screen turntable that’s pretty f****** awesome! It lets you loop, sample and scratch wave forms just as you would a record. The size of the touchtable is approximately the same as a standard turntable, making the physical interaction nearly the same.

If you look closely in the video, though, Hobbs is scratching the actual waveform.

This looks very cool – but I’d like to see more abstraction away from the “two turntable” paradigm to allow for open-ended sound manipulation that may have not been possible with turntables.

The ATTIGO TT is currently a working prototype, and Scott is looking for manufacturers to partner with.

  1. This seems so cool to me 🙂
    Okay i love the good old days too, but imagine what will be invented in the next 10 years or so.
    I wonder if the sound will be different using this scratch table.

  2. Very cool! I think that the development process will yield different takes on the art form and produce some astounding new ways to interact with the audience and gear.

  3. I love how this takes the idea of scratching and takes it into the 21st century.

    I’d like to see a pro hit this!

  4. Maybe there’s a little latency and not accuracy due to touch-screen control as happends for Jazzmutant’s lemur…

    anyway cool Idea
