Phase Pushes Official Delivery Date to Late November
As of November 26, 2018, the delivery of Phase has been pushed to late January 2019. Read an update here.
As the old saying goes, “Rome wasn’t built in a day.” Unfortunately, this also rings true for one of the most exciting innovations to come out of NAMM 2018, Phase, the first wireless controller for DVS and progressive solution for vinyl DJs and turntablists. Today the French company announced that the official delivery date will be pushed from September until November 28, 2018.
From the creators of Mixfader, Phase allows you to control tracks from your DJ software without using a turntable cartridge or timecode control vinyl. Back in April, the company began taking preorders that guaranteed a Phase product pack would ship as soon as the first batch was ready.
With hopes that a minor delay will ensure a perfect product is distributed to the public, Phase released an update via Facebook about the journey from development to launch. Read an excerpt from the full post below:
“As heartbreaking as it was for us, we took an important and difficult decision and decided to postpone the launch to November 28th. This will give us the opportunity to improve Phase and offer you the perfect product that will meet all your expectations. We will use this extra time to work on two major development directions:
- New and faster radio data transmission protocol
- Upgrade the USB support for new application compatibilities
- Redesign the pairing system for easy-to-use and instant setup in any situation
- New update system that will allow to integrate new major features remotely
- Rework the included accessories (magnetic stickers and cables) to meet intense DJ performances requirements
We would like to sincerely apologize for the delay, we know what a frustration this news is for you all – it was hard for us too – but we are convinced that it is for the best. We are a team of passionate people whose main goal has always been to bring innovative and high-quality solutions to the DJ community, and we need more time than initially forecasted to honour that promise.
We will continue to meet and exchange with you during our Phase Live Sessions all over the world, and regularly share news and updates until launch day – November 28th.”
Phase has received nothing but stellar reviews since it was introduced to the public. To learn more about the technology behind this product, visit the Phase Project website.
