It doesn’t take long, however, to get the hang of everything – short of trying to remember all the extra functions that are unlocked by the use of shift and multi-mode buttons many of the buttons have off, solid on, and flash states that all mean something different. It is an amazing twitchh and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a great DJ tool.
