At last year's NAMM we looked at the Smithson Martin Emulator, a Virtual DJ interface on a transparent touch-screen. The idea was to add an element of visual performance to a DJ's stage set.

In November Smithson Martin accounced the Kontrol Surface, it's the same kind of deal as their Emulator, but in an analog synth style packaging. Essentially if you're a DJ and you want to look like a complete renegade maverick mofo, then you should purchase this and pretend that you can play synth.

The design of the interface is flexible, meaning you can have custom interfaces for software such as Traktor, or Ableton.

Alan Smithson takes you through the product in the video above.
