Theres not even a back I/O section yet in these prototypes theyre using external Traktor sound cards. But Is A Mixer With A Computer Inside It Really Better? The touchscreen on one of the Invader prototypes.
Ill be following this with some interest. Check out the original story over at Engadget. Courtesy of Engadget Courtesy of Engadget Courtesy of Engadget Courtesy of Engadget Thud Rumbles Invader mixer with built in PC was last modified: August 17th, 2016 by Mark Settle.
Readers could probably understand if the FM did feel like she needed to pack a cosh and a knuckleduster in her handbag. Never mind walking down dark alleys late at night in sketchy parts of town it sounds like there are some people right there.

DJ interfaces are notoriously crammed to the gills, so its going to take some work from the likes of NI and. Serato to make small screen friendly touch layouts. All that stuff they put on one laptop screen could be split across a few screens.
Speaking of which (because if I dont somebody else will) At the back of last year, DJ Techtools ran a story about the. OBMFLM 4, and home-brew but decidedly polished project that works in much the same way as the Invader, but is in a much more advanced.
But apparently NI is working with Thud Rumble to develop an interface that will sit inside the case. Its also planned that the Invader will also run as a regular mixer as well. And while this is currently running with Traktor, the Invader is planned to be.
Engadget, what you have is essentially a tiny Intel PC attached to a small touch screen running Windows 10 and. Traktor Scratch Pro and an NI audio interface, all encased in what I assume is a MIDI control surface in a mixer sized case.
Its planned to offer many options when ordering your Invader, so that you can personalise it to suit your needs. Be it buttons or pads, colour, or putting your logo right onto the faceplate, Thud Rumble will be able to make the Invader of your dreams.
We first heard of Qberts Thud Rumble working with Intel over a year ago, with the goal to bring microcomputers into the DJ booth and eventually replace laptops. Yesterday, at Intels IDF keynote, Qbert showed off a prototype of their Invader mixer with a touchscreen display.
