Musik Messe 2010- New DJ Controllers

Without a presence at musik messe 2010, Dj TechTools sent one of our dedicated forum members, Maxxis, deep into the thick of the trade show to find us some cool new gear. Initial reports from other blogs have been short on anything eye catching, so I was quite surprised to see  3 new dj controllers that might spark your interest.

Big thanks to Maxxis, who ran around the fair all day shooting photos for us. There were a few other  new controllers that we didn’t show in this post but to be honest, these were the only ones that really caught my interest. Shout out in the comments if you saw anything else that should be added to the post and what gear we should review in the coming months.
