Take a different look at DJing
You can use Twitch for straight DJ sets, or you can pull your tracks apart and put them back together totally on the fly. It is compact and bus-powered, which means no external power supply!
It comes with Serato ITCH – powerful DJ software that only works with select hardware controllers. As well as being rock-solid and simple to use, ITCH has totally new performance tools that take digital DJing to the next level. Watch this video to find out more about the unique "Slicer" mode and how to get instant control of effects using the faders...
From the studio to the stage with Twitch and Ableton Live
Although it comes with Serato ITCH, Twitch is a great way of performing with Ableton Live. It has an onboard audio-interface, DJ mixer layout, numerous back-lit buttons and rotary controls which can be freely assigned to anything in Ableton Live - and it's fully bus powered. It's the only thing you'll need to take out with you (apart from your laptop...)
Novation have created a free application, which enables Twitch to talk to Ableton Live. This video explains how the TwitchLiveTranslator works.

Check out this video for more details about the Traktor for Twitch mapping
We have created powerful 2 and 4 deck mappings for Traktor PRO. All the controls you need to perform have been mapped to the Touchstrips, knobs, faders and buttons on TWITCH. A free Traktor PRO overlay is included in the TWITCH box which labels what each control does. Simply place it on TWITCH to transform it into a Traktor controller with a difference.

Professional and Portable
TWITCH is designed for performing, so we made it tough and compact enough to carry from gig to gig. It has an aluminium top panel and is small enough to be carried with your laptop. Its modest size means it will slot into tight spaces in DJ booths and on stage.
Hard-wearing metal surface: tough enough for gigging
Compact design: small and light enough to hand-carry with your laptop
Fully bus powered: easy to set up and no need for additional power supply
LED backlit buttons: essential for performing in dark environments
