CyberStep has announced its new Mobile Audio Workstation, KDJ-ONE, which is now available for pre-order in Japan, North America, Germany, and France.
KDJ-ONE is a first of its kind DAW touchscreen smartbook featuring an advanced synthesizer, sequencer, and multitrack audio editing with ACIDized WAV support. Built-in speakers, mic, WLAN, and lithium battery make KDJ-ONE a completely portable and wireless handheld production environment. Additionally, a high precision vibration system adds unique force feedback to your music creating experience.
KDJ-ONE features a combination of multi-touch screen, keypad, and jog dial for a fluid and intuitive control system unlike that of any existing hardware or software. It runs Intel MeeGo Handset Edition as its OS, and supports all of MeeGo’s features including a web browser, Skype, media player, and more. The unit’s built-in KDJ2 Synth features 10 synthesis algorithms, 20 effects, 7 filters, and 4 modulation units including step modulation, which delivers an indispensable tool when creating electronic/club style tracks.
ACID formatted samples may also be loaded directly into KDJ-ONE’s audio tracks and time-stretched just as in ACID DJ, creating a whole new world of possibilities. Likewise, patterns created with KDJ-ONE may be exported directly to ACIDized WAV format. The 6 track pattern sequencer includes automation/motion sequencing, loop recording, step recording, piano roll, and all other standard sequencer features.
KDJ-ONE also features a unique song mode that allows DJ style mixing of two patterns in real time. KDJ-ONE’s internal synthesizer may be used as a VST plugin within any external VST host, via wireless LAN or USB. Internal settings and data are also editable from the computer. The high precision “QW” vibration system sends vibrations from your music directly to your fingertips, adding a whole new element of force feedback to your music production experience!
CyberStep will be exhibiting KDJ-ONE at the NAMM Show 2012 (January 19th – 22nd, 2012 Anaheim Convention Center, booth E #1059).
