Created by Qbert’s own Thud Rumble brand, alongside Jesse Dean Designs, the Photon Fader is said to provide extreme accuracy with access to cue points and even effects for analog vinyl.

- Integrated phono preamp and USB sound card
- Two adjustable trimmers allow you to set your cut-in without any messy calibration steps
- 8 pads with a switchable bank button give you remappable hotcues/instant doubles
- Mappable FX and Thru buttons allow you to trigger FX or quickly switch between DVS and analog vinyl
- Compatible with Traktor, Mixxx, DJ Player Pro, Ableton, or any software that receives MIDI
- Scratch on a portable turntable with DVS on your iPhone or iPad using the Photon and DJ Player Pro
